S--INDUSTRIAL UTILITIES SUPPORT AT PORTSMOUTH NAVAL SHIPYARD, KITTERY, MAINE AND OTHER AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY
Department of the Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command | Published September 1, 2016
The Officer in Charge requires all labor, management, supervision, tools, materials, and equipment and other items necessary to perform Facility Investment services (Industrial Utilities Support Services) at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Kittery, Maine and other areas of responsibility. The work includes, but is not limited to, maintenance on auxiliary generators; maintenance and incidental repairs for facilities, equipment and systems; supply and maintain a water purification system; and maintain the Electrical Power Distribution System Components.
The work identified is to be provided by means of a combination Firm-Fixed Price/Indefinite Quantity contract. Source Selection procedures will be used to select the proposal that provides the lowest price and is technically acceptable to the government.
Offerors will be evaluated using the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable Method. In order to permit efficient competition, the Navy will utilize the following methodology: Proposals will initially be screened for price and placed in order of price (lowest price to highest price). The Navy will then evaluate the technical factors of the three (3) lowest priced proposals. The Navy will make award to the lowest priced technically acceptable proposal from among the three (3) lowest priced proposals. However, if no proposals are found to be technically acceptable within the first group of proposals, the Navy, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to increase the number of proposals it will review, until the Government identifies a technically acceptable proposal.
Accordingly, under this methodology, the technical factors of some proposals may not be evaluated by the Navy.
Proposers are advised that the Government intends to evaluate proposals and award without discussions or any contact concerning the proposals received. Therefore, proposals should be submitted initially on the most FAVORABLE terms. Proposers should not assume that they will be contacted or afforded an opportunity to qualify, discuss, or revise their proposals. If discussions are deemed necessary by the Contracting Officer, all proposals will be evaluated (both technical and price) for the purpose of establishing a competitive range.
The solicitation and resulting contract award will be a performance-based service acquisition made to the responsible offeror whose proposal, conforming to the Request for Proposals (RFP), will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other evaluation factors considered.
The offerors proposal shall contain a response to each of the evaluation factors and shall be in the form prescribed by the solicitation. The solicitation requires the evaluation of price and the following non-price factors: Factor 1 – Technical Approach/Management, Factor 2 – Corporate Experience, Factor 3 – Safety, and Factor 4 – Past Performance. NOTE: Offerors MUST be evaluated as technically ACCEPTABLE under factors 1, 2, 3 and 4 in order to be considered technically acceptable overall.
Offers shall be submitted for the performance of work for a period of one year. However, the initial term of the contract may be for a period of less than one year. The Government has the option to extend the term of the contract services for additional periods of one to twelve months.
The total contract term, including the exercise of any options, shall not exceed 60 months.
The proposed procurement will be issued as a NAVFAC Electronic Facilities Support Contract with online ordering capability using DOD EMALL for the Indefinite Quantity Exhibit Line Item Numbers (ELINs). Acceptance of Government Purchase Credit Cards is required along with the purchase of DOD EMALL Encrypted Software. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is 561210 with a size standard of $38.5M.
