Such documents include, but are not limited to: (1) Record of Categorical Exclusions (RCE), Environmental Assessments (EAs) and Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) in conformance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality that implement NEPA procedures, 40 C.F.R. Parts 1500-1508; (2) Documents required for consistency determination under the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA); (3) Documents for consultation under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Regulations (PL 101-601) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966; (4) Integrated Natural Resources Management Plans (INRMP) as required by the Sikes Act Improvement Amendments of 1997 and associated NEPA documentation in accordance with Memorandum from the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Installation and Environment) of 12 Aug 98. Technical services may include preliminary site assessment studies (including topographic, geotechnical, hazardous materials, and infrastructure) associated with the proposed action, civil engineering services, feasibility assessments, and supporting studies on physical, biological, electromagnetic, radio frequency interference, traffic, economic, social and other components of the environment which may be affected by the proposed action. Other technical services may include graphics, preparation of presentation and briefing materials (in electronic format and hard copies), and coordination with government agencies. The contract scope may require evaluation of and definition of asbestos materials, toxic waste disposition and/or pollution control works. If asbestos or hazardous materials exist, the A-E contractor may be required to identify, evaluate and recommend alternative methods for disposal in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. Firms must be prepared to accept the aforementioned as a part of their contract responsibility. Project assignments may include projects for governmental agencies other than the U.S. Navy, such as the U.S. Coast Guard or the U.S. Marine Corps, for which PACNAVFACENGCOM may be tasked to provide environmental documents. Many military areas of work anticipated under this contract will not allow the entry of aliens. The field crew of the A-E shall be composed of U.S. citizens who can qualify for access to military areas after appropriate security checks are made. The A-E shall abide by prevailing security requirements during visits to such military property and shall obtain the required permits and passes in a timely manner. The nature of specific work assignments may require the A-E to obtain a secret security clearance. The Government utilizes the following software suite: Microsoft WINDOWS NT 4.0/5.0 WORKSTATION, Microsoft OFFICE 2000 PROFESSIONAL (WORD 2000, POWERPOINT 2000, EXCEL 2000, ACCESS 2000) , and Internet Explorer 5.5. In preparation of documents and correspondence, the A-E shall ensure compatibility with the Government?s software. The contract will be an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity type where the work will be required on an "as needed" basis during the life of the contract provided the Government and contractor agree on the amount. Each project contract will be a firm fixed-price A-E Task Order. The Government will determine the task order amount by using rates negotiated and negotiate the effort required to perform the particular project. The contract shall not exceed twelve months or $1,250,000 total fee, whichever comes first. The Government guarantees a minimum amount of $25,000 for the contract. Should an impasse on price occur over the initial and subsequent projects, the Government will apply the dollar value of the Government estimate for that project or projects towards the minimum guarantee. The Government reserves the option to extend the contract for an additional three (3) years for a total of four (4) years, with a maximum fee of $1,250,000 per year. There will be no future synopsis in the event the options included in the contract is exercised. Estimated date of contract award is on or about May 2003. The selected A-E may be required to participate in a pre-fee meeting within seven days of notification and to provide a fee proposal within ten days afterwards. Proposals may be subject to an advisory audit performed by the Defense Contract Audit Agency. The following selection evaluation criteria, in relative order of importance, will be used in the evaluation of A-E firms: (1) Professional qualifications of the firm and staff proposed for preparing environmental impact documents in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality that implement NEPA procedures, 40 C.F.R.
