Total Small Business
The University of California, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), which is operated under Prime Contract DE-AC02-05CH11231 with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), intends to subcontract for Electrical & Mechanical Engineering services in support of the LBNL?s Facilities Division, Design & Construction Department construction projects and services. The subcontract will be an indefinite delivery task order type contract. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a large diversified research facility consisting of over 80 buildings spread over 130 acres of hilly terrain adjacent to the University of California, Berkeley Campus as well as off-site facilities in the cities of Berkeley, Oakland and Walnut Creek. This is not a request for quotation. It is an announcement for subcontracting opportunities with the University of California, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Interested firms are encouraged to submit qualifications as directed below. LBNL intends to enter into subcontracts with electrical & mechanical engineering firms to perform electrical & mechanical engineering tasks under respective subcontracts. A firm need not have both capabilities in order to submit qualifications; it is anticipated that separate subcontracts for electrical engineering services and mechanical engineering services will be awarded. The subcontract(s) will be for a one-year period, with an option, at the sole discretion of the University, to extend for up to three additional one-year periods. One or more task assignments, of no guaranteed amount or duration, will be issued each year. Individual tasks will be performed on a lump sum or hourly rate basis and will vary in complexity or duration. The total dollar value of tasks issued for any one year under the subcontract will not exceed $500,000. The University makes no guarantee as to the dollar value or number of task assignments to be authorized pursuant to the award of the subcontract. Issuance of subcontract tasks will be contingent upon available funding. LBNL is free to assign and allocate electrical & mechanical engineering requirements with other engineering firms that are under contract or may be selected in the future. In addition, the Facilities Engineers retains the exclusive right to perform any or all portion of the architect-engineering requirements. The engineering firm and its subsidiaries or affiliates shall be excluded in the award of any construction contract that is based on the engineer?s design.
