MEDICAL CLEARANCE: The selected applicant and any eligible family members who will accompany the applicant to post shall be required to obtain a Department of State Medical clearance to live and/or work in Ukraine as a pre-condition for employment and/or residence in this position. 10. SUPERVISOR: Chief of Mission/Ambassador, Ukraine or Designee 11. AREA OF CONSIDERATION: US Citizens, Eligible Family Members, Green Card Holders ¬¬¬¬¬¬ 1. General Principles: The incumbent is the primary point of contact and coordinator of U.S. Government (USG) activities, schedules and events related to the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in the country. The PEPFAR Coordinator plays a key role in the planning, inter-agency implementation, and inter-agency reporting on program performance. The role of the Coordinator is becoming more essential as the size and complexity of the PEPFAR/Ukraine program grows from a few projects to 23 discreet activities. The Ambassador leads the in-country PEPFAR program and is the final decision-maker under PEPFAR Guidance to all program plans and activities submitted to the US Deputy Principal’s Group, with final authority to the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator for approval. The first line supervisor for this position is the Ambassador or his designee. The PEPFAR Coordinator is an internal USG facilitator, a communicator, and ensures the timely roll-out of PEPFAR reports and implementation plans. The PEPFAR Coordinator is responsible for maintaining an electronic interagency tracking report. The Coordinator is not a technicaldirector and is not expected to provide technical oversight of programs, although the Coordinator may be expected on occasion to ensure follow-up on implementation of technical recommendations based on the Country Operational Plan (COP) and other performance review information. The PEPFAR/Ukraine Country team currently has an interagency working group comprising agency leads. The Coordinator is accountable to ensure this group meets regularly, has an agenda, and is achieving objectives. As required or needed, the management working group may consist of smaller interagency technical working groups (TWGs) around themes such as medication assisted therapy, prevention or disease surveillance. In general, the PEPFAR Coordinator, in collaboration with Agency leads, will be accountable to ensure that these groups are established, have an agenda, are achieving objectives and maintain a clear file on actions taken, results and key issues. Agency leads should be copied on communications between the Coordinator and TWGs or staff as well as on substantive communications between the Coordinator and the Country Support Team Lead in headquarters. This procedure is essential to retain trust and respect between agency leads and the Coordinator. In addition, it is critical that the Coordinator be copied on internal agency communication related to matters of PEPFAR program strategy, implementation, and management and staffing. The Coordinator will periodically meet with the host country and technical partners, particularly when the nature of these contacts and meetings is related to bilateral coordination and information sharing. When the Coordinator meets with host country government counterparts, s/he should include Agency leads or, if not possible, consult with Agency leads. Regarding meetings that are of a technical nature or for purposes of negotiating with partners, this function will be maintained by the Agency leads. The Coordinator is the USG lead for coordinating and assembling the country operations plan (COP), Semi-Annual Performance Review (SAPR), and Annual Performance Review (APR) development. The Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that reports are submitted to Washington on time, for organizing the logistical arrangements for inter-agency work, and for keeping agencies on task for inter-agency efforts. 2. The Ukraine Context and Background: The PEPFAR/Ukraine portfolio is a $22.0 million annual program currently supporting HIV/AIDS prevention, including medication assisted therapy (MAT), safe blood supply, disease surveillance and HIV/TB integration and referrals, support for pharmaceutical management and commodity supply chain management for HIV, TB and other co-infection drugs and medication for MAT. The PEPFAR/Ukraine programs works with both the public sector and leading HIV non-governmental organizations (NGOs) across the country and a select number of private sector groups in leveraged partnerships. The program also engages a number of partners in academic institutions, foundations, international and bilateral organizations as well as the multilateral funding mechanism, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), which is the largest external HIV/AIDS donor. The USG is the largest bilateral donor providing funds, technical assistance and some commodity support for HIV/AIDS programs. USG HIV/AIDS activities in Ukraine fall under the responsibility of the PEPFAR/Ukraine Team, under the leadership of the Ambassador, with principle membership being the US Agency for International Development (USAID/Ukraine), the US Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention office (HHS/CDC/Ukraine), the US Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMSHA) the US Peace Corps, which currently has over 500 volunteers making it the largest PC program in the world, and the Office of the Defense Attaché (DOA). Issues addressed by the Team include PEPFAR program implementation (program planning, budgeting, oversight, and reporting), support and assistance to Global Fund activities and coordinating with other health sector donors on issues regarding HIV/AIDS. In FY 2010, PEPFAR/Ukraine managed a $12 million program.

99 — REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS – DESIGN COMPETITION NCPCTempArtCompetition 031312 Mary Pineda, Contracting Officer, Phone 202-205-8468, Fax 202.780-4982, Email mary.pineda@gsa.gov – Jilayne Willhoite, Contract Specialist, Phone 202-260-4445, Fax 202.780-4982, Email jilayne.willhoite@gsa.gov REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS, DESIGN COMPETITION DUE March 13, 2012, 3:00PM   Beyond Granite: A Design Competition for a Temporary Commemorative Installation at the Ariel Rios Hemicycle, Washington, DC Introduction The US General Services Administration (GSA), working with the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), announces a competition for a temporary commemorative installation at the Ariel Rios Hemicycle, on 12 th Street NW, Washington, DC, adjacent to the Ariel Rios Federal Building, which houses the headquarters of the US Environmental Protection Agency. The winning proposal will feature a site-specific, temporary work that commemorates the founding principles and legacy of Earth Day-an environmental subject not otherwise represented in the city’s commemorative landscape-and which does so in a way that expands the palette of form and material for commemorative works in Washington. Project Background Historically, commemorative installations and memorials in Washington have been designed for the ages. They tend to feature works of stone and granite, set within a solemn landscape that often encompasses multiple acres dedicated solely to a commemorative purpose. Construction costs are high; recent projects range between sixty to one hundred twenty million dollars in costs. The Commemorative Works Act established a process for evaluating the subject matter, location, and form of permanent commemorative works in the Washington region, and the process can be complex and lengthy. It begins with an act of Congress, and often takes 10 years until project realization.   In 2010, NCPC sponsored a forum entitled Beyond Granite: Global Approaches to Public Art and Placemaking .   The program featured public artists and arts administrators discussing temporary works such as the World Trade Center Tribute in Light and London’s Fourth Plinth program in Trafalgar Square. Panelists discussed how a program of temporary commemorative works could be used to enrich the cultural landscape in Washington, DC, by providing a means to recognize issues and events that might not otherwise fit within the confines of the Commemorative Works Act, while alleviating the pressure of demands for permanent memorial sites in the Monumental Core. Such a program would also create opportunities for artists to experiment with new and dynamic kinds of designs and materials.   The Beyond Granite competition has been conceived to pick up where this conversation left off. The goal of the competition is to encourage more public dialogue about alternative ways to commemorate, and also to experiment with temporary forms of commemoration that can contribute to more vital public spaces within the nation’s capital.  Site Description The site is a grassy semi-circle along 12 th Street NW in the Federal Triangle area of Washington, DC. Immediately in front of the Ariel Rios Federal Building, it is known as the Ariel Rios Hemicycle. Although the site is adjacent to the Federal Triangle Metrorail Station and is a nexus for vehicular and pedestrian traffic moving between the National Mall and Pennsylvania Avenue and between the Old Post Office Pavilion and the Woodrow Wilson Plaza, the site itself is underutilized and undistinguished. Through the competition, NCPC and GSA seek to activate the site and make it a more memorable and attractive public space.  Concurrent with this competition, NCPC and GSA will be making permanent site enhancements such as new seating and improvements to the landscaping. Any other proposed modifications to the site must not permanently impact the façade of the historic Ariel Rios Federal Building, and also must not adversely affect the operations or structure of the Metrorail station located under the site.  Competition Theme While the overall objective of this competition is to explore opportunities created through temporary forms of commemoration, a theme has been identified to provide a focus for competition submissions-that of Earth Day. Earth Day began, and continues as, a grass-roots effort to promote environmental awareness and broaden responsibility for our planet. It is now the largest civic observance in the world, with more than 1 billion people participating. Earth Day continues to inspire individuals, businesses, diverse organizations and communities. Since the first Earth Day in 1970, this annual awareness and educational event has broadened support for environmental actions and programs at the local, national and international levels. In fact, some of the early Earth Day celebrations are now remembered for launching modern environmental awareness. In the U.S., Earth Day inspired passage of many groundbreaking environmental laws and helped lead to the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency, whose offices are housed immediately adjacent to the competition site.    NCPC and GSA seek proposals that embody defining precepts of the founding of Earth Day, its legacy, and environmentally sustainable practices. Works should inspire the audience to reflect upon the impact of Earth Day over the past 40 years, environmental achievements going forward, and the challenges that remain. Works also should be site specific, designed to respond to the Hemicycle’s urban form and context. Scope of Work The selected Artist/Designer (or, if a team, the designated Lead Artist/Designer) will be responsible for producing a final design for NCPC and GSA approval. Once approved, the selected Artist/Designer may be contracted to develop the design and fabricate and install the project, resulting in a public display at the hemicycle for a period of up to one year (estimated April 22, 2013 – April 22, 2014).   The Artist/Designer will be responsible for producing or subcontracting fabrication, transportation, site preparation, installation, maintenance, and/or de-installation, and other services, as needed. Services required of the contracted artist/designer or team may include, but will not be limited to, site visits, concept design documents, design development documents, working drawings, fabrication documents, specifications, cost estimates, presentations, site preparation services, fabrication services, installation, and post-fabrications services. Ongoing coordination with GSA and NCPC will be required.   The total possible time frame of the project from award of contract to de-installation is anticipated to last between 19 – 21 months (depending on contract award date and final installation date). Budget This project is SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS .   The total cost range of this temporary commemorative work is between $200,000 to $300,000.    The value includes all costs associated with, but not limited to: presentations, design fees, travel, insurance, project materials, fabrication, and transportation of work to the site, site preparation, installation, maintenance, de-installation, and documentation. Selection Process This is a request for Qualification (RFQ) of an Artist/Designer interested in contracting for this temporary commemorative installation.   The Artist/Designer will be designated as the Lead if a team is involved, and is the individual who will have primary responsibility to conceive the design concept and the temporary commemorative installation’s fabrication, installation and deinstallation.    There are two stages to the design competition to select a winning submission. This RFQ represents STAGE I of the competition. Evaluation of all submissions in STAGE I and STAGE II will be conducted by an Evaluation Board, which will make a recommendation to the GSA Selection Authority on the final selection. The Evaluation Board may include representatives from NCPC, GSA, Commission of Fine Arts and private sector professional peers in the fields of art, architecture, history of memorials, and urban planning.  Advisors will include individuals with new media, performance art, or other discipline experience as required.    The process for selection in two stages is as follows: In STAGE I , Artists/Designers interested in contracting for this work will submit information about themselves, their teams and portfolios of accomplishment that establish their capabilities, as well as a preliminary vision statement for the commemorative installation based on information provided in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). From this first round of submissions, an Evaluation Board will establish a short-list of approximately five Artists/Designers who are most qualified for the purposes of this competition. In STAGE II , short-listed Artists/Designers will be notified and asked to develop conceptual proposals for the commemorative installation in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP).   The RFP will include detailed guidelines, evaluation criteria, and final information about submission requirements and the site.   Soon after the RFP is issued, short-listed Artists/Designers (and their teams) will be invited to a Q&A session and site visit, and then given time to develop their proposals.   At the site visit, site conditions will be relayed. The STAGE II proposal submission requirements will consist of a written statement describing the concept, schedule and budget, and a 45-minute in-person interview and presentation using boards as well as digital material/slides. More specific information about STAGE II proposal submission requirements will be given to short-listed Artists/Designers along with the RFP.   The purpose of the RFP design review is to further evaluate the Artist/Designer (and team) qualifications, and the design for the temporary commemorative installation.   After reviewing all submitted materials and interviewing candidates, the Evaluation Board will recommend a winning candidate for Lead Artist/Designer to the GSA Selection Authority for approval.   A stipend will be offered to the short-listed artists/designers to assist with the purposes above.   The stipend will be paid following submission of the Stage II design.  All submitted materials become the property of the U.S. Government and may or may not be the basis, whole or in part, for the development of the final commemorative installation and may be posted to the competition website. Eligibility All experienced, practicing artists and/or designers are encouraged to apply. Artists/designers may work as individuals or teams, and may work in a variety of media. Proposed projects may be individual projects, team projects, or projects consisting of multiple works and artists.

The winning proposal will feature a site-specific, temporary work that commemorates the founding principles and legacy of Earth Day-an environmental subject not otherwise represented in the city’s commemorative landscape-and which does so in a way that expands the palette of form and material for commemorative works in Washington. Project Background Historically, commemorative installations and memorials in Washington have been designed for the ages. They tend to feature works of stone and granite, set within a solemn landscape that often encompasses multiple acres dedicated solely to a commemorative purpose. Construction costs are high; recent projects range between sixty to one hundred twenty million dollars in costs. The Commemorative Works Act established a process for evaluating the subject matter, location, and form of permanent commemorative works in the Washington region, and the process can be complex and lengthy. It begins with an act of Congress, and often takes 10 years until project realization.   In 2010, NCPC sponsored a forum entitled Beyond Granite: Global Approaches to Public Art and Placemaking .   The program featured public artists and arts administrators discussing temporary works such as the World Trade Center Tribute in Light and London’s Fourth Plinth program in Trafalgar Square. Panelists discussed how a program of temporary commemorative works could be used to enrich the cultural landscape in Washington, DC, by providing a means to recognize issues and events that might not otherwise fit within the confines of the Commemorative Works Act, while alleviating the pressure of demands for permanent memorial sites in the Monumental Core. Such a program would also create opportunities for artists to experiment with new and dynamic kinds of designs and materials.   The Beyond Granite competition has been conceived to pick up where this conversation left off. The goal of the competition is to encourage more public dialogue about alternative ways to commemorate, and also to experiment with temporary forms of commemoration that can contribute to more vital public spaces within the nation’s capital.  Site Description The site is a grassy semi-circle along 12 th Street NW in the Federal Triangle area of Washington, DC. Immediately in front of the Ariel Rios Federal Building, it is known as the Ariel Rios Hemicycle. Although the site is adjacent to the Federal Triangle Metrorail Station and is a nexus for vehicular and pedestrian traffic moving between the National Mall and Pennsylvania Avenue and between the Old Post Office Pavilion and the Woodrow Wilson Plaza, the site itself is underutilized and undistinguished. Through the competition, NCPC and GSA seek to activate the site and make it a more memorable and attractive public space.  Concurrent with this competition, NCPC and GSA will be making permanent site enhancements such as new seating and improvements to the landscaping. Any other proposed modifications to the site must not permanently impact the façade of the historic Ariel Rios Federal Building, and also must not adversely affect the operations or structure of the Metrorail station located under the site.  Competition Theme While the overall objective of this competition is to explore opportunities created through temporary forms of commemoration, a theme has been identified to provide a focus for competition submissions-that of Earth Day. Earth Day began, and continues as, a grass-roots effort to promote environmental awareness and broaden responsibility for our planet. It is now the largest civic observance in the world, with more than 1 billion people participating. Earth Day continues to inspire individuals, businesses, diverse organizations and communities. Since the first Earth Day in 1970, this annual awareness and educational event has broadened support for environmental actions and programs at the local, national and international levels. In fact, some of the early Earth Day celebrations are now remembered for launching modern environmental awareness. In the U.S., Earth Day inspired passage of many groundbreaking environmental laws and helped lead to the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency, whose offices are housed immediately adjacent to the competition site.    NCPC and GSA seek proposals that embody defining precepts of the founding of Earth Day, its legacy, and environmentally sustainable practices. Works should inspire the audience to reflect upon the impact of Earth Day over the past 40 years, environmental achievements going forward, and the challenges that remain. Works also should be site specific, designed to respond to the Hemicycle’s urban form and context. Scope of Work The selected Artist/Designer (or, if a team, the designated Lead Artist/Designer) will be responsible for producing a final design for NCPC and GSA approval. Once approved, the selected Artist/Designer may be contracted to develop the design and fabricate and install the project, resulting in a public display at the hemicycle for a period of up to one year (estimated April 22, 2013 – April 22, 2014).   The Artist/Designer will be responsible for producing or subcontracting fabrication, transportation, site preparation, installation, maintenance, and/or de-installation, and other services, as needed. Services required of the contracted artist/designer or team may include, but will not be limited to, site visits, concept design documents, design development documents, working drawings, fabrication documents, specifications, cost estimates, presentations, site preparation services, fabrication services, installation, and post-fabrications services. Ongoing coordination with GSA and NCPC will be required.   The total possible time frame of the project from award of contract to de-installation is anticipated to last between 19 – 21 months (depending on contract award date and final installation date). Budget This project is SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS .   The total cost range of this temporary commemorative work is between $200,000 to $300,000.    The value includes all costs associated with, but not limited to: presentations, design fees, travel, insurance, project materials, fabrication, and transportation of work to the site, site preparation, installation, maintenance, de-installation, and documentation. Selection Process This is a request for Qualification (RFQ) of an Artist/Designer interested in contracting for this temporary commemorative installation.   The Artist/Designer will be designated as the Lead if a team is involved, and is the individual who will have primary responsibility to conceive the design concept and the temporary commemorative installation’s fabrication, installation and deinstallation.    There are two stages to the design competition to select a winning submission. This RFQ represents STAGE I of the competition. Evaluation of all submissions in STAGE I and STAGE II will be conducted by an Evaluation Board, which will make a recommendation to the GSA Selection Authority on the final selection. The Evaluation Board may include representatives from NCPC, GSA, Commission of Fine Arts and private sector professional peers in the fields of art, architecture, history of memorials, and urban planning.  Advisors will include individuals with new media, performance art, or other discipline experience as required.    The process for selection in two stages is as follows: In STAGE I , Artists/Designers interested in contracting for this work will submit information about themselves, their teams and portfolios of accomplishment that establish their capabilities, as well as a preliminary vision statement for the commemorative installation based on information provided in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). From this first round of submissions, an Evaluation Board will establish a short-list of approximately five Artists/Designers who are most qualified for the purposes of this competition. In STAGE II , short-listed Artists/Designers will be notified and asked to develop conceptual proposals for the commemorative installation in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP).   The RFP will include detailed guidelines, evaluation criteria, and final information about submission requirements and the site.   Soon after the RFP is issued, short-listed Artists/Designers (and their teams) will be invited to a Q&A session and site visit, and then given time to develop their proposals.   At the site visit, site conditions will be relayed. The STAGE II proposal submission requirements will consist of a written statement describing the concept, schedule and budget, and a 45-minute in-person interview and presentation using boards as well as digital material/slides. More specific information about STAGE II proposal submission requirements will be given to short-listed Artists/Designers along with the RFP.   The purpose of the RFP design review is to further evaluate the Artist/Designer (and team) qualifications, and the design for the temporary commemorative installation.   After reviewing all submitted materials and interviewing candidates, the Evaluation Board will recommend a winning candidate for Lead Artist/Designer to the GSA Selection Authority for approval.   A stipend will be offered to the short-listed artists/designers to assist with the purposes above.   The stipend will be paid following submission of the Stage II design.  All submitted materials become the property of the U.S. Government and may or may not be the basis, whole or in part, for the development of the final commemorative installation and may be posted to the competition website. Eligibility All experienced, practicing artists and/or designers are encouraged to apply.
