Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USACE Middle East District, Attn: CETAC-PD-CT 201 Prince Frederick Drive Winchester VA 22602-5000

U — English Technical Services W912ER-13-Q-SS01 011513 Ryan K. Gregory, Phone 5406653946, Email ryan.k.gregory@usace.army.mil – Lana Birdsell, Contract Officer, Phone 540-665-2617, Email jean.l.birdsell@usace.army.mil REQUEST FOR INFORMATION -
THIS IS *NOT* A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL, QUOTATION, OR INVITATION TO BID NOTICE.
This announcement is a Request for Information (RFI) only. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Transatlantic Division, Middle East District (TAM) is seeking preliminary marketing information from capable and reliable sources. TAM is contemplating the award of one or more contract actions for the acquisition of Technical English Language Training for foreign students.

Based upon international agreements, TAM provides friendly Foreign and Allied Governments with facilities and infrastructure support. As part of our support to Host Nations (HNs), TAM trains HN government employees (military and civilian) in how the Corps performs its missions, and assists in the individual’s professional training in technical fields. To further this learning experience and enhance the support provided by TAM, some HNs have asked if TAM could support HN employees with Technical English Language Training.

TAM defines Technical English Language Training as advanced training in the English language specifically focused on the areas of engineering, architecture, design, construction, technical report writing, and facility operations and maintenance. Selected students would already have a basic skill in conversational and written English (as a second language), and would generally have a non-US college degree in a technical area, but they would not likely be totally familiar and comfortable with English technical terms from the areas listed above. TAM desires that any traditional classroom training be augmented with “immersion” type training, whereby students are immersed in technical English for considerable periods of time, are frequently tested for accuracy and competency, and have practical exercises in such tasks as reading blueprints/drawings, creating technical reports from raw data, performing design reviews and write-up, and similar situations. Students could also be expected to be trained to be competent and comfortable with terminology regarding computer aided drafting and design (CADD), databases, spreadsheets, design/construction scheduling software, design and construction contracts, and similar areas. TAM also desires that applicable students be scheduled for some time with a US Architect-Engineer or Construction firm affiliated with the service provider to augment the training with real-world situations.

TAM is currently looking at a program in the neighborhood of 24 weeks in duration, but TAM prefers to utilize an existing program of similar nature rather than a special program specifically designed for this requirement. It is intended that this training would take place within the CENTCOM AOR

TAM does not currently have expectations regarding who provides the administrative and logistical support for students. For instance, TAM currently has no preference whether the provider of the requested services would be responsible for the lodging of students.

Respondents should provide a Statement of Capabilities, which should include, as a minimum: (1) identification of resources available to successfully perform the various services as outlined above; (2) a list stating which of the services above have previously been provided; (3) details regarding currently available programs; (4) ability to tailor such programs to TAM’s general requirements as articulated above; (5) ability to create an entirely new program based on TAM’s requirements; (6) ability to support lodging, transportation, feeding, and other support requirements of a student; and, (7) ability to support the entire training curriculum in a foreign locale. Please limit your responses to 25 pages or less, Times New Roman, 10 font or larger.

The requested information is for planning purposes, and does not constitute a commitment, implied or otherwise, that a procurement action will be issued. TAM will use the information for technical and acquisition planning. Any acquisitions in this area may follow in a way that will best meet TAM’s needs. The Government invites comments related to possible purchase or acquisition strategies. TAM will not reimburse providers for the cost of submitting information in response to this RFI. The Government will not return pictures, documents, graphs and or other requested information. Information submitted to TAM in response to this RFI will be treated as strictly proprietary unless otherwise indicated. Information submitted in response to this RFI will be used for TAM business development activities. It is emphasized that this RFI is for planning and information purposes only, and is NOT to be construed as a commitment by the Government to enter into a contractual agreement, nor will the Government pay for information solicited. No solicitation exists; therefore, do not request a copy of the solicitation. Questions may be directed to the contacts listed in the paragraph below.
Interested parties shall address the requirements of this RFI in written format as described in the previous paragraphs by electronic mail to: Ryan Gregory at ryan.k.gregory@usace.army.mil or Jean L. Birdsell at jean.l.birdsell@usace.army.mil no later than 3:00 P.M. (Eastern Standard Time) on January 15, 2012.
In addition to the statement of the offeror’s capabilities listed above, please provide answers to the following questions. Reference question number with each response as follows:

1. Company name, company mailing address, point of contact, telephone number, facsimile number, e-mail address, Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code, Dun & Bradstreet (DUNS) Number, and size of your organization (i.e. Large Business, Small Business) you are using as the basis for your response.

2. Is your company a foreign-owned/foreign-controlled firm and/or do you contemplate the use of foreign national employees on this effort?

Responses must reference the sources sought, and contain the respondent’s commercial and government entity (CAGE) code.

____________________________________________________________________________________

ALL OCCUPATIONS LISTED ABOVE RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:

HEALTH & WELFARE: $3.71 per hour or $148.40 per week or $643.07 per month

VACATION: 2 weeks paid vacation after 1 year of service with a contractor or
successor; 3 weeks after 7 years, and 4 weeks after 11 years. Length of service
includes the whole span of continuous service with the present contractor or
successor, wherever employed, and with the predecessor contractors in the
performance of similar work at the same Federal facility. (Reg. 29 CFR 4.173)

HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther
King Jr’s Birthday, Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor
Day, Columbus Day, Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (A
contractor may substitute for any of the named holidays another day off with pay in
accordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4174)

THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING:

1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section 8(b), this wage determination does
not apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,
administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Because
most Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a rate
not less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate not less than $455 per
week) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.
400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupations
within those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may not
list a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the survey
data indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds
$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. For
example, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs duties
within the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmer
occupations for which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate,
then the wage rate for that employee must be conformed in accordance with the
conformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wage
determination.

Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computer
industry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computer
professional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employees
who satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty consists of:
(1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, including
consulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functional
specifications;
(2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or
modification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on and
related to user or system design specifications;
(3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computer
programs related to machine operating systems; or
(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of which
requires the same level of skills. (29 C.F.R. 541.400).

2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS – NIGHT PAY & SUNDAY PAY: If you
work at night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differential
and receive an additional 10% of basic pay for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am.
If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a week) and Sunday is part of your
regularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay plus a Sunday
premium of 25% of your basic rate for each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime
(i.e. occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is considered
overtime work).

HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL: An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees
employed in a position that represents a high degree of hazard when working with or
in close proximity to ordinance, explosives, and incendiary materials. This
includes work such as screening, blending, dying, mixing, and pressing of sensitive
ordance, explosives, and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black powder
and photoflash powder. All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives.
Demilitarization, modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance operations
on sensitive ordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations
involving regrading and cleaning of artillery ranges.

A 4 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position that
represents a low degree of hazard when working with, or in close proximity to
ordance, (or employees possibly adjacent to) explosives and incendiary materials
which involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or arms of the
employee engaged in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the
like; minimal damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used.
All operations involving, unloading, storage, and hauling of ordance, explosive, and
incendiary ordnance material other than small arms ammunition. These differentials
are only applicable to work that has been specifically designated by the agency for
ordance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay.

** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE **

If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract
(either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state or
local law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (by
laundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by an
employee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wage
determination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with the
following standards as compliance:

The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with an
adequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actual
cost of the uniforms. In addition, where uniform cleaning and maintenance is made
the responsibility of the employee, all contractors and subcontractors subject to
this wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargaining
agreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contrary
affirmative proof as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaning
and maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day). However, in
those instances where the uniforms furnished are made of “wash and wear”
materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and do
not require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commercial
laundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the terms
of the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work,
there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs.

The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the
“Service Contract Act Directory of Occupations”, Fifth Edition, April 2006,
unless otherwise indicated. Copies of the Directory are available on the Internet. A
links to the Directory may be found on the WHD home page at http://www.dol.
gov/esa/whd/ or through the Wage Determinations On-Line (WDOL) Web site at
http://wdol.gov/.

REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATE {Standard Form
1444 (SF 1444)}

Conformance Process:

The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which is
not listed herein and which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work to
be performed is not performed by any classification listed in the wage
determination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a reasonable
relationship (i.e., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlisted
classifications and the classifications listed in the wage determination. Such
conformed classes of employees shall be paid the monetary wages and furnished the
fringe benefits as are determined. Such conforming process shall be initiated by
the contractor prior to the performance of contract work by such unlisted class(es)
of employees. The conformed classification, wage rate, and/or fringe benefits shall
be retroactive to the commencement date of the contract. {See Section 4.6 (C)(vi)}
When multiple wage determinations are included in a contract, a separate SF 1444
should be prepared for each wage determination to which a class(es) is to be
conformed.

The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows:

1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformed
occupation(s) and computes a proposed rate(s).

2) After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in order
proposed classification title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for each
proposed classification(s), job description(s), and rationale for proposed wage
rate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of the
authorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorized
representative, the employees themselves. This report should be submitted to the
contracting officer no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es) of employees
performs any contract work.

3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a report
of the action, together with the agency’s recommendations and pertinent
information including the position of the contractor and the employees, to the Wage
and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, U.S. Department of Labor,
for review. (See section 4.6(b)(2) of Regulations 29 CFR Part 4).

4) Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage and Hour Division approves, modifies, or
disapproves the action via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, or
notifies the contracting officer that additional time will be required to process
the request.

5) The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour decision to the contractor.

6) The contractor informs the affected employees.

Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF 1444 or bond paper.

When preparing a conformance request, the “Service Contract Act Directory of
Occupations” (the Directory) should be used to compare job definitions to insure
that duties requested are not performed by a classification already listed in the
wage determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but the required tasks that
determine whether a class is included in an established wage determination.
Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivide
classifications listed in the wage determination.

6) Description of Services:

The Scope of Work is defined as the participatory design of an MCC Threshold Program investment in improving public sector accountability in Tunisia based on the key findings of the CA. The Consultant will carry out a deeper sector analysis, in cooperation with a GOT team led by the specially-appointed POC, of the policies and institutions that cause or reinforce this binding constraint to growth. The Consultant will then facilitate the design of a Threshold Program investment based on reform commitments by the GOT, an assessment of both the implementation feasibility of reforms proposed, and the cost effectiveness of the proposed interventions, as well as written Program Guidance on the Threshold Country Plan, to be provided by MCC. MCC envisions that deliverables under this contract will be used not only to develop the MCC Threshold Program but also to inform additional aspects of the GOT’s broader reform agenda as well as the activities of other donors operating in Tunisia.

The Consultant is a joint partner with the GOT and as such will work with the designated GOT team, including the designated POC and any other resources the GOT leverages to support this work. All deliverables should represent jointly produced and agreed products of the Consultant and the GOT, and be revised to reflect any MCC feedback. The Consultant will make every effort to ensure GOT ownership over the analytical and program design processes, as well as the programmatic outcomes, in keeping with MCC’s core principle of country ownership.

All motor vehicle operators designated and/or tasked to transport material or waste per the statement of need shall obtain a State-issued hazardous material endorsement to his/her commercial driver’s license in accordance with 49 CFR 383.93.

The Contractor shall provide a secure storage area that meets all Federal, state, and local requirements for storage of all hazardous waste or hazardous material. The area where DEA waste or material is accumulated must be protected from weather, fire, physical damage and vandals and/or theft.

The Contractor shall have all applicable, current permits, licenses, training certificates and other forms of required documentation to perform the services indicated within the Statement of Need.

The Contractor shall have the capability or means to incinerate all waste, other than compressed gas cylinders, appliances, and scrap metal, in accordance with all Federal, state, and local laws and regulations and the facility’s operating permit requirements to include the ability to provide a Certificate of Destruction (CD) for each waste incinerated/disposed.

The Consultant will carry out a deeper sector analysis, in cooperation with a GOT team led by the specially-appointed POC, of the policies and institutions that cause or reinforce this binding constraint to growth.

The Consultant will then facilitate the design of a Threshold Program investment based on reform commitments by the GOT, an assessment of both the implementation feasibility of reforms proposed, and the cost effectiveness of the proposed interventions, as well as written Program Guidance on the Threshold Country Plan, to be provided by MCC. MCC envisions that deliverables under this contract will be used not only to develop the MCC Threshold Program but also to inform additional aspects of the GOT’s broader reform agenda as well as the activities of other donors operating in Tunisia.

The Consultant is a joint partner with the GOT and as such will work with the designated GOT team, including the designated POC and any other resources the GOT leverages to support this work.

Disagreements over findings are to be resolved through additional analysis and data provision and direct engagement. If agreement is not possible, the final report will note areas of disagreement as well the basis for the disagreements.

The Consultant will also work closely with other consultants engaged by MCC, particularly the consultant(s) engaged to analyze public sector accountability issues, sharing information, findings, and contacts on the ground in Tunisia, and will consider him or herself part of a larger team tasked with facilitating the design of the overall Threshold Country Plan in Tunisia.

3.0 Background: VHA has experienced over the past decade an huge influx of amputee patients and a congruent amount of designated healthcare providers that care for these patients into the VHA healthcare system. In order to support the healthcare providers and patients alike, ACA magazines/materials outline experience in providing the required educational training/support materials. Also, the approaches outlined in the magazine will enable VHA to move from a ‘disease model’ of care into a patient centered ‘wellness model’. This approach is also critical in order to provide better amputation care to VHA’s foreseeable influx of amputee veterans seeking VHA healthcare. The system that is incorporated in ACA’s materials will place VA in a unique position of being the best approach to assist VA and its patients in improved “amputation of care”.
In addition, VHA requires annual ACA/CARF membership for 22 VISN as well as 7 Regional Amputation Centers (RACs) and 15 Polytrauma Amputation Networks (PANS). EES requires access to ACA/CARF corporate membership in order to support VHA’s ongoing research for clinical training and education management decisions that directly impacts our nation’s veterans quality of healthcare.

McGrew, Contracting Officer, Phone 919-541-3813, Fax 919-541-5117, Email mcgrewl@niehs.nih.gov – Brian Souter, Contracting Officer, Phone (919) 541-0401, Fax 919-541-5117, Email brian.souter@nih.gov Introduction. This is a Small Business Sources Sought notice. This is NOT a solicitation for proposals, proposal abstracts, or quotations. The purpose of this notice is to obtain information regarding (1) the availability and capability of qualified small business sources; (2) whether they are small businesses; HUBZone small businesses; service-disabled, veteran-owned smallbusinesses; 8(a) small businesses; veteran-owned small businesses; woman-owned small businesses; or small disadvantaged businesses; and     (3) their size classification relative to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for the proposed acquisition.
Your responses to the information requested will assist the Government in determining the appropriate acquisition method, including whether a set-aside is possible. An organization that is not considered a smallbusiness under the applicable NAICS code should not submit a response to this notice.

Background. The National Institution of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) was deeded the South Campus location on June 26, 1967, by the Research Triangle Foundation. The NIEHS has only a proprietary interest in this land. This in effect means that although the Federal Government (NIEHS) has acquired title to this area in North Carolina, it has not obtained any measure of the State’s authority over the area. This finding mandates that all contractors operating on all NIEHS property, leased or owned, in Durham County must adhere to all state and local requirements (i.e. building permits, etc.). The NIEHS is one of the National Institute of Health (NIH), principal federal agency for biomedical research on the health effects of environmental agents.

The NIEHS, located in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina, is one of 27 research institutes and centers that comprise the NIH, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

The NIEHS traces its roots to 1966, when the U.S. Surgeon General announced the establishment of the Division of Environmental Health Sciences with the NIH. In 1969, the division was elevated to full NIH institute status. Since then, the NIEHS has evolved to its present status as a world leader in environmental health sciences. Today the NIEHS is expanding and accelerating its contributions to scientific knowledge of human health and the environment, and to the health and well-being of people everywhere.

The mission of the NIEHS is to reduce the burden of human illness and disability by understanding how the environment influences the development and progression of human disease. The NIEHS achieves its mission through; (1) Extramural research and training, funded by grants and contracts, to scientists, environmental health professionals, and other groups worldwide; (2) Intramural research conducted by scientist at the NIEHS facility and in partnership with scientists at universities and hospitals; (3) Toxicological testing and test validation by the National Toxicology Program (NTP); and (4) Outreach and communications programs that provide reliable health information to the public and scientific resources to researchers.

The Office of Communications & Public Liaison (OCPL) is the first source of news and information about the NIEHS, and the institute’s important biomedical research and funding programs. The communications team handles media requests, inquiries from the scientific community, as well as internal communication activities.

A critical component of an effective NIEHS research effort hinges on an in-depth understanding and demonstrated ability, by the multi-media contractor, for producing products that successfully communicate highly technical science and public health programs to both scientific and lay public audiences.

Purpose and Objectives. The NIEHS, Office of Communications and Liaison (OCPL) is in need of support of graphic arts, desktop publishing, photography, and videography needs of the institute.
