This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will NOT be issued. This solicitation document incorporates provisions and clauses which are in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-51. The NAICS is 721110 and the Small Business Size Standard is $6 million. A. AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS Funds are not presently available for award. The Government's obligation under this contract is contingent upon the availability of appropriated funds. No legal liability on the part of the Government may arise until funds are made available to the Contracting Officer. Vendors shall include the details of their cancellation terms and conditions with their offer. Offerors are advised to submit their best terms and conditions now, as the government reserves the right to award based on initial offers without conducting negotiations. B. IDENTIFICATION The General Services Administration (GSA), Public Buildings Service (PBS), Great Lakes Region, Organizational Resources Division (ORD), 230 S. Dearborn, Ste. 3500, Chicago, IL, intends to block single occupancy sleeping rooms, meeting space, meals, and audio/visual (A/V) event production services for general session presentations and approximately 20-25 separate breakout session presentations (5-6 time slots of four sessions each) for the Property Management Service Centers (PMSC) and Facilities Management Services Program (FMSP) "Facilities Management (FM) Training Forum," which must accommodate 200 attendees. C. OBJECTIVES The Great Lakes GSA FM Training Forum serves as the primary mechanism to train and recognize associates responsible for federal property management region wide. The workshop also offers training in property management techniques and business process improvement. It creates a unique opportunity to unite geographically dispersed associates for face-to-face discussions regarding project challenges, opportunities, lessons learned, and best practices. The FM Training Forum also creates important networking opportunities and sharing of ideas across the region and among various property management roles, program areas, and regional support staff. D. BACKGROUND The FM Training Forum is aimed at property managers and many other GSA associates involved in property management programs. Past workshops have typically united 270 regional headquarters and field office employees involved in all aspects of the region's property management program for a series of lectures, interactive break-out sessions, sharing of lessons learned, best practices, and training sessions. It is organized around a series of general sessions which begins each day and carries through a working lunch. In between the general sessions will be a series of break out and networking sessions, typically four per time slot, with six time slots throughout the conference. The conference begins with a managers-only meeting from about 11 am to 5 pm on day one. On day 2 it continues with more managers' meetings from 8-11 am before starting the full forum with a lunch at 11am and kickoff presentation at 12:30 pm, followed by general sessions and breakouts until 5:30 pm and concluding with an awards dinner from 6 - 10 pm. The forum concludes on day three from 8 am - 2 pm. (closing lunch and activities from around noon until 2 pm). E. HOTEL LOCATION, QUALITY AND ACCOMMODATIONS In order to meet GSA requirements, all conference and meeting spaces must be contiguous or in very close proximity (line of sight preferred) to each other. The Ballroom space, where the General Sessions will be held will be the main focus of the Training Forum; therefore, the space should be visually appealing and provide a sense of grandeur and class. All program space must be blocked for the sole use of GSA for the duration of our conference. Spaces shall be contemporary, clean, well-ventilated, adequately soundproofed and handicapped accessible. Because networking is a primary function of this Training Forum, seating and other furnishings in all public and guestroom areas of the hotel must be contemporary, attractive, or recently renovated. GSA reserves the right to view and approve AV equipment during site visits. Equipment should be in excellent operating condition. AV prices should be submitted with the proposal and will be considered prior to award. Guestrooms will be individually occupied. All must have flat screen TVs and be contemporary, handicapped accessible, and able to offer refrigerators upon request. Food and beverage service must meet Federal Government's per diem rates. Presentation of food should be visually appealing, colorful, and offer a good variety of nutritional value and selection at each meal and snack. In keeping with GSA's goal to be environmentally-friendly in all we do, the hotel selected should have an environmental program in place. The environmental program should be available for GSA to review upon request. Fast and easy check-in and check-out capabilities are required. With 200 Training Forum attendees arriving at the property at one time, hotel must have a plan/staff to have check-in/check-out move quickly and efficiently. Luggage storage is required if guestrooms are not available for early check-in (11:00 AM arrival). Express check-out via guestroom TV or under guestroom door invoicing is required. Business Center with free boarding pass printing and a fully-functioning, clean, well-lit Fitness Center is a high preference.
