THIS NOTICE IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. NO SOLICITATION WILL BE ISSUED AGAINST THIS SYNOPSIS. The purpose of this Modification 16 is to obligate $22,000 in support of Work Assignment 2-100. The anticipated period of performance for this work assignment will be from July 9, 2010 though May 31, 2011. Under WA 2-100, the contractor will provide support to EPA in its management and oversight of ARRA projects included in the interagency agreement between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indian Health Service (IHS) the contractor shall: a. Develop a generic quality assurance project plan for water samples collected at completion of Drinking Water and Clean Water facility construction; and b. Develop draft and final meeting reports to assist the Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW) and Office of Wastewater Management (OWM) with implementing the Protocols for Oversight of Tribal Projects Funded through an Interagency Agreement between EPA and IHS by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) contains specific acquisition requirements that must be met when using appropriated funds from the Act, including the need for acquisitions to be in accordance with the FAR and, to the maximum extent practicable, awarded as fixed-price (FP) contracts using competitive procedures. However, the Office of Management and Budget's guidance allows for the use of other than FP contracts. Although the Agency's Office of Water (OW) contracts were not awarded as FP contracts, they were awarded competitively, and each contract structure was selected to provide the contractor with the greatest incentive for efficient and economical performance, given the types of services to be performed. The existing OW contracts have sufficient qualified acquisition personnel to provide appropriate contract administration and oversight to monitor contract performance to mitigate the Government's risk. In order to meet the requirements of the Act in the most prudent business manner within the time constraints imposed, existing OW contracts are the most appropriate contractual vehicles consistent with Agency plans that promote the goals of the ARRA.
