GSA is re- soliciting these eight areas. Awards were made for the Washington, DC and Portland, Oregon areas. This is a full and open competition. The small business size standard is 7.0 million for this acquisition.

The selected contractors/community based organizations will be required to be registered in CCR, Contractor Central Registration. The purpose of this pre-solicitation notice is to notify interested parties or sources of the anticipated release date of the solicitation on or about 13 October 2009 with responses due to the Government on or about 12 November 2009. Organizations or interested firms offering similar programs in the pre-apprenticeship training arena with emphasis in the construction trades are encouraged to submit an expression of interest. An interested parties' list will be complied. Firms/organizations responding must have a DOL registered or certified pre-apprenticeship program with a proven training completion track record (past performance) and job placement success in construction, energy efficiency and retro-fitting labor categories.

Contract awards shall range from $25,000 to $125,000 covering a one year period. These numbers also reflect an even distribution of awards to all 8 areas. If all areas are not represented with proposals, then greater amounts may be awarded to other identified and represented areas.
