Small Business Set-Aside
This is a SOURCES SOUGHT announcement. The Government is seeking to identify qualified large and small business sources under 2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) 541990 (Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services). The small business size standard is $14 million. This notice is for market research purposes only and IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) nor does it restrict the Government as to the ultimate acquisition approach. The Government will not reimburse respondents for any costs incurred in preparation of a response to this notice. For market research purposes only small businesses should provide responses. Some of the following requirments were previously posted under W912DY-12-R-0016, Sources Sought: Global Logistics and Other Support Services to DoD (GLOSS DoD). 1. CONTRACT INFORMATION: The objective of this Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) is for Contractors to provide Life Health and Safety (LHS) support at existing and any future U.S. Military bases and camps worldwide. The contracts are anticipated to be awarded in 2013 with a one-year base period and four one-year option periods, for a total ordering period of at least five years during which to compete for task orders. The programmatic value of all task orders awarded under all of the ID/IQ contracts is $450M. Interested sources should respond to the questions presented within this announcement in order to facilitate the Government's market research efforts. The Government will analyze all responses and determine if the pool of qualified and interested small business firms is significant enough for a total set-aside competition restricted to small businesses or for a partial set-aside competition restricted to small businesses. If the determination is made that there are not enough qualified and/or interested small business firms to perform this requirement, the Government may solicit the acquisition as an unrestricted full and open competition. The Government does not intend to rank submittals or provide any reply to interested firms. 2. PROJECT INFORMATION: The primary focus of this effort is to provide corrective actions of life, health and safety hazards existing at U.S. occupied facilities worldwide and including US Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A). As part of the overall objective of Life, Health, and Safety (LHS) support the contractor may be tasked to provide electrical inspection and repair, fire inspection, fire prevention training, other independent support services as needed at locations throughout the world. This training supports fire safety concepts, fire protection and alarm systems, building codes and National Fire Codes and Standards. The fire safety training also serves to ensure that potential electrical risks are reduced, which would decrease LHS hazards identified during the electrical inspections. The requirement will also include generator inspections and power optimization recommendations for systems providing low voltage electrical power to inspected facilities. Contractors will be asked to provide their own logistical support for their employees. As part of the overall logistical support requirements, the contractor may be required to establish and operate temporary base camps, provide camp/facility and convoy security, provide life support to other contractors utilizing base camp facilities and while complying with established safety guidelines and mandates. Contractors will utilize existing logistical support provided by the U.S. Military as much as possible, but may be asked to become 100% independent of such support. A primary capability requirement is for contractors to provide logistical support for their own personnel and government civilians overseeing the task. 3. SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Interested firms should submit a document describing relevant demonstrated experience and qualifications via email Michael.D.Ashworth@usace.army.mil and Tonju.L.Butler@usace.army.mil no later than Friday, 18 May 2012, 1600 Central Time.
