The purpose of this amendment is to make the following change(s) or add additional information.
NACIS Code as reads 541620, Environmental Consulting Services should reads 562910, Environmental Remediation Services.
For purposes of classifying a Government procurement as Environmental Remediation Services, the general purpose of the procurement must be to restore or directly support the restoration of a contaminated environment. This includes activities such as preliminary assessment, site inspection, testing, remedial investigation, feasibility studies, remedial design, remediation services, containment, and removal of contaminated materials or security and site closeouts. The general purpose of the procurement need not necessarily include remedial actions. Also, the procurement must be composed of activities in three or more separate industries with separate NAICS codes or, in some instances (e.g., engineering), smaller sub-components of NAICS codes with separate and distinct size standards. These activities may include, but are not limited to separate activities in industries such as: Heavy Construction; Special Trade Contractors; Engineering Services; Architectural Services; Management Consulting Services; Hazardous and Other Waste Collection; Remediation Services; Testing Laboratories; and Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences. If any activity in the procurement can be identified with a separate NAICS code, or component of a code with a separate distinct size standard, and that industry accounts for 50 percent or more of the value of the entire procurement, then the proper size standard is the one for the particular industry, and not the Environmental Remediation Service size standard.

R — Fine Art Conservation Services Blanket Purchase Agreement SAQMMA13Q0067 032813 Patrick T. Dermidoff, Phone 703-875-4679, Email dermidoffpt@state.gov Fine Art Conservation Services FBO Combined Synopsis/Solicitation Language
This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This combined synopsis/solicitation is issued as a request for proposals.

The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-65.

The Department of State, Office of Fine Arts (M/FA) intends to establish a Blanket Purchase Agreement for fine art conservation services as described in further detail below for the Diplomatic Reception Rooms at the Harry S Truman Building in Washington D.C. This acquisition is being issued under the authority of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 12. This announcement constitutes only the solicitation, which is hereby issued as a Request for Proposals (RFP) to establish Blanket Purchase Agreement. There will be no guaranteed minimum quantities purchased and the Government will be obligated only to the extent of authorized calls placed against the resulting Agreement.

System for Award Management (SAM) applies to this procurement. You must be registered in SAM in order to be eligible to receive an award from this solicitation. Information on SAM registration and annual confirmation requirements may be obtained via the Internet at http://www.sam.gov. Prospective contractors must be registered in SAM database prior to award. Lack of registration in SAM database will make an offeror ineligible for award. CONTRACTORS MUST COMPLY WITH FAR 52.204-99 System for Award Management (SAM) Registration (August 2012) (DEVIATION).

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 711510 with a small business size standard of $7,000,000.00 in average annual receipts for the past 3 years. Please identify your business size in your response based upon this standard. This requirement will be a 100% Total Small Business Set Aside.

Requirement:
The Government intends to award one or award more than one Blanket Purchase Agreement; however, the Government reserves the right not to award any BPA. The Government does not guarantee any order placements. Any resultant BPA(s) will be five (5) years in duration; however, either party may terminate the resulting BPA with 30 calendar days notice.

The Government seeks to establish a BPA for the performance of fine art conservation services in the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the Harry S Truman Building in Washington D.C. The art and architecture of the Diplomatic Reception Rooms is modeled after the great American interiors: Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Benjamin Chew’s Cliveden, and John MacPherson’s Mount Pleasant. These interiors were designed for the U.S. Department of State by architects Walter Macomber, Edward Vason Jones, and John Blatteau. Today, these reception rooms and principal offices require annual and ongoing maintenance.

The Contractor will conduct a condition assessment of the collections at the U.S. Department of State, identifying short- and long-term conservation objectives over the five-year period (i.e. approximately 450 historic artifacts) and making best practice recommendations for care and preservation of the collections (i.e. exhibition requirements and environmental conditions).

The Contractor will provide a pre-assessment report to the Curator of Collections for review (i.e. statement on original workmanship of artist, present condition and underlying causes, prior restoration(s)/conservation, solubility test results, and photographic documentation). Conservation will be preceded by test areas, the results of which will be shared with the Curatorial staff, and the resulting treatment will be conducted in layered approaches given subjective interpretation of solubility tests.

Treatments will address surface accumulation and yellowing varnish; common paint issues (flaking, cupping, and drying and mechanical cracks); support issues with structural supports, housing and/or frames; prior restoration(s) of moderate-to-poor quality; general and pervasive damage requiring filling and/or inpainting. The Contractor will preserve original materials and workmanship to the fullest extent possible (i.e. dot-by-dot inpainting technique with reversible materials).

The Contractor advises the Curator of Collections as a technical experts drawing from multiple years of experience working with Government collections in the Washington, DC, region. This includes a thorough working knowledge of historic artifacts through the colonial and federal periods with specific understanding of regional and revival styles where necessary.

Evaluation criteria:
The procurement is being conducted under FAR Part 15.101-1. The acquisition evaluation will be conducted utilizing a best value -tradeoff source selection process, which seeks to select an offer with the overall best value to meet the Government’s need. Best value is defined as the expected outcome of an acquisition that, in the Government’s estimation, provides the greatest overall benefit in response to the requirement, in accordance with FAR 2.101.

The best value will be determined by comparing differences in the value of non-price features in cost to the Government. In making this comparison, the Government is more concerned with obtaining superior technical, non-price features than with making an award at the lowest overall cost to the Government. However, the Government will not make an award at a significantly higher overall cost to achieve slightly superior technical, non-price features.

Therefore, price/cost is not expected to be the controlling factor in the selection of an offeror, but the degree of importance of cost as a factor could become greater depending on the quality of the proposals for other factors evaluated.

The Government reserves the right to make a selection based upon the initial proposal submissions so the offeror should submit its best terms in the initial proposal. The Government may also determine to make no award.

A single offeror will be selected who is deemed responsible in accordance with FAR 9.104-1 and whose offer provides the Government with a best value solution.

FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation – Commercial Items (Jan 1999)
(a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Technical Capability, Key Personnel, and Past Performance.
(b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).
(c) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer’s specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.

Technical Capability:
Offerors must demonstrate an understanding of the performance requirements and an ability to execute them in accordance with the Statement of Work. In evaluating technical capability, the Government will evaluate the offeror’s understanding of the work and soundness of their approach to specifically include an offeror’s ability to provide the required services necessary to successfully execute the SOW requirements. In evaluating the offeror’s technical capability, the Government will evaluate the offeror’s understanding of the complete scope and complexity of performance requirements as it relates to the proposed skill mix and level of effort. This will be evaluated as a measure of the Government’s confidence in the offeror’s ability to plan for, manage, and staff the requirement.

Submissions for technical proposals shall not exceed ten (10) pages excluding title pages, table of contents, and graphics.

Key Personnel:
Offerors must demonstrate that there will be knowledgeable and skilled personnel performing the required duties. Key personnel must have in-depth experience in specialized conservation with similar projects.

Corporate Past Performance:
Offerors must demonstrate proof of corporate past performance in work related to this requirement. The personnel must have in-depth experience in specialized conservation with similar projects. Companies must have experience handling detailed projects in historically significant settings

Price (non technical factor):
The offeror shall provide a written price proposal. All services for each period of performance are to be labor hours with firm fixed rates. The offeror’s price proposal should include labor categories, and fully burdened labor rates.

The Contracting Officer will establish call limitations in writing for individuals who are authorized to place calls. The call limit for each individual may vary.

The Government will notify the offeror of the names of individuals who will be authorized to place calls against any resulting BPA. The BPA will identify the names of the individuals authorized to schedule deliveries under the Agreement. Only authorized Government employees who have been specifically named by the Contracting Officer may schedule deliveries under this agreement. STRICT COMPLIANCE WITH THIS STIPULATION IS IMPERATIVE.

Proposal must be submitted electronically to dermidoffpt@state.gov. The due date is Thursday, March 28 at 12PM EST. All proposals as well as inquiries should be sent electronically to:

THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT SYNOPSIS FOR WRITTEN INFORMATION ONLY. THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION ANNOUNCEMENT FOR PROPOSALS AND NO CONTRACT WILL BE AWARDED FROM THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is performing a ?market search? for large and small businesses in preparation for a future procurement.
The EPA has a need for a contractor to provide the Office of Water?s Office of Science and Technology (OST), Health and Ecological Criteria Division (HECD), with support in its mission under the Clean Water Act (CWA) to protect the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation?s waters (e.g., protect them from the adverse impacts of chemicals, suspended and bedded sediments, microorganisms, and nutrients; assess and maintain the quality of biological communities; diagnose the causes of impacts) and address these components in media such as surface waters, wastewater, biosolids, and sediments. It also requires support in providing assistance to States and Tribes as they implement their water quality standards programs in order for OST to meet one of its crucial missions.
The specific purpose of the resultant contract would be for the contractor to provide technical and regulatory support services to the Health and Ecological Criteria Division (HECD) in OST to develop, revise, and implement ecological criteria for the protection of water quality on a national, state, and site-specific basis. Activities in support of this purpose might include:
SCIENTIFIC/TECHNICAL SUPPORT -conducting toxicological reviews -conducting national and site-specific ecological hazard assessments -conducting national and site-specific ecological risk assessments -performing statistical analyses -evaluating national and site-specific methods for ecological criteria development -evaluating national and site-specific ecological impacts of pollutants -evaluating national and site-specific risk assessment measurement endpoints -analyzing tissue, surface water, sediment, biosolids, and effluent samples for chemicals, microorganism, and nutrients -performing population modeling of chemical impacts on aquatic or aquatic-dependent species -conducting laboratory toxicity tests and field studies -conducting biological assessments and laboratory taxonomic identifications -conducting toxicity tests in water and sediment -developing bioavilability, chemical fate, transport and effect and population model development and support -developing data bases -conducting GIS and other mapping -evaluating bioaccumulation potential, trophic transfer, calculating and applying bioaccumulation factors -sampling ambient waters, effluents, organism tissues, and biosolids for chemical analysis -conducting literature reviews, reviewing technical data, performing analyses and summarizing findings -conducting remote sensing -investigating, interpreting, and addressing experimental and emerging science: genomics, endocrine disruptors, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, prions, nanotechnology, immunosuppression, etc. -implementing knowledge and experience in the use and application of EPA national and site-specific guidance methodologies for the development of water quality criteria
DOCUMENTATION SUPPORT -preparing national and site-specific ecological criteria documents in standard EPA format -preparing national and site-specific technical information documents -preparing national and site-specific technical support documents for methods, criteria, and regulations -preparing the index of references for proposed regulations and other publications -preparing presentation materials -arranging and conducting workshops -preparing public outreach, brochures, fliers, etc -performing technical writing -providing Water Quality Standard (WQS) Academy instruction and technical presentations -developing non-technical summaries of documents for the general public -developing non-technical briefing material for senior managers -organizing literature reviews and references in an alphabetized or chronological or subject area order -preparing peer review summaries and documents
Please see attached draft Performance Work Statement for additional information concerning the anticipated tasks under the resultant contract.
All interested parties are hereby invited to submit a capability statement of no more than fifteen (15) pages, and no smaller than 12 point font. In keeping with the potential tasks, interested parties submitting capabilities statements in response to this sources sought should address their ability to provide, or have access to, senior technical experts in: aquatic toxicology, aquatic chemistry, sediment toxicology, ecotoxicology, statistics, bioaccumulation, nutrients and nitrification, biological assessment, biocriteria, aquatic biology, wildlife toxicology, embedded sediments and suspended sediments, biosolids risk assessment, fate and effects and transport modeling, geochemical speciation modeling, aquatic life criteria development, and other criteria development derivation procedures to provide technical expertise to HECD and its customers.
The successful contractor shall provide all necessary labor materials, facilities, and services in support of the efforts. It is anticipated that the contract will be a Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) Level of Effort (LOE) starting in December 2013 with a one year Base Period and four Optional Periods of 12 months each. Interested parties should include a discussion of the capability of their accounting system or ability to implement a cost accounting system required of a cost-type contract. Previous experience with cost-type government contracts should ve discussed. Approximately 15,000 LOE hours are anticipated for each contract period with contractor?s needing to provide as much as an additional 2,800 hours for a total of 84,000 hours in total for all periods if all the potential LOE hours are realized. The applicable NAICS code is 541690 with a sizestandard of $14,000,000. The resultant contract would be a follow-on to EP-C-09-001 with Great Lakes Environmental Center, Inc.
In the previous acquisition, EPA restricted the following types of firms from receiving award due to an inherent conflict of interest posed by the implications of the services to be provided under the contract: firms that were chemical producers/importers; pesticide or agricultural products producers/importers; and waste management/waste disposal firms.
Any interested firms should submit a capability statement which demonstrates the firm?s ability to perform the key requirements described above. Standard company brochures will not be considered a sufficient response to this Sources Sought Synopsis. In the capabilities statements, contractors should provide their size status for the above referenced NAICS code, (i.e. large, small) and whether or not they are certified Hubzone, 8(a), women-owned, small disadvantaged and/or service veteran owned concern.
The EPA reserves the right to set this action aside for small businesses if it determines that there are two or more small businesses able to compete in terms of market prices, quality, and delivery. If set aside, a small business would be required to perform at least 51 percent of the direct labor costs incurred under the contract with their own personnel (FAR 52.219-14). Capability statements from small businesses should address their ability to meet this requirement. Responses to the above should be submitted to Courtney Stallworth, at Stallworth.courtney@epa.gov no later than 21 calendar days from date of this posting. A separate synopsis will be issued for the Request for Proposal (RFP) resulting from this sources sought synopsis.
The EPA is also interested in soliciting ideas that firms may have as to the appropriate means of incentivizing contractor performance from a contractor?s perspective.

Time: The event will begin at 08:00 AM on 11 April 2012. Attendees should plan on arriving to WSMR at least one and one half (1.5) hours prior to the event so you may process through security, obtain a visitor’s pass and check-in at the event. Check-in at the event will begin at 7:30 AM MST. A tentative agenda is attached.

All questions will be held until the afternoon session. All questions and answers discussed at the Industry Day event will be published.

No foreign nationals are permitted. The contractor must e-mail the completed attached RSVP form (see attached Microsoft Excel workbook) to peter.l.hopkins.civ@mail.mil by COB 4 April 2012. Due to security procedures, the persons attending the Industry Day must be listed on the RSVP form.

Las Cruces, NM is the closest city to WSMR, NM. The closest WSMR access gate is located off of US Highway 70. El Paso International Airport, El Paso, TX is the closest regional airport. Contractors are solely responsible for all expenses associated with their attendance at the Industry Day. Please visit the WSMR websitehttp://www.wsmr.army.mil/Pages/Home.aspx, for more information about WSMR. The “WSMR at a Glance 2011″ and the WSMR Fact-book” are also attached for your basic information. Maps of WSMR are available at:
http://www.wsmr.army.mil/testcenter/Pages/WhereWeAre.aspx.

Occasionally, WSMR will block roads (including US Highway 70) in the area for missile testing. Please call the Road Block phone number, 575-678-1178, for recorded updates on planned roadblocks. The information is usually updated each weekday in the afternoon for the following day. Since the actual firing schedule can slide due to any number of circumstances like weather or equipment problems, travelers should also check the recording right before leaving to ensure nothing has changed.

Installation Access: All visitors must bring photo identification. To obtain a vehicle security pass you must have a driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance. All visitors must enter WSMR through the Las Cruces main gate (located off of US Highway 70). Visitors must stop at the WSMR Reception Center to obtain their visitor’s pass.

Safety: As a tri-service Department of Defense Range, White Sands has tested nearly every type of deployable ordnance developed in the United States since 1945. Quite a number of these munitions were deliberately designed to blend in with the terrain, and their presence may not be immediately obvious to the casual observer. Consequently, even though WSMR performs extensive Range Clearance activities, there is no assurance that any area of the Range is truly 100% free of unexploded ordnance. More information concerning unexploded ordnance hazards can be viewed at http://www.wsmr.army.mil/ux/Pages/default.aspx. The contractors are responsible to view the video found at this link under the title, UXO Hazards Video. You will be asked to sign a form, acknowledging that you have viewed this video at the check-in event. No person will be allowed to tour the range without first viewing this video.

Photography & Video Ban: No photographs or videos are allowed on WSMR except in the WSMR museum missile park area.

The contract resulting from this solicitation will be awarded based on the following evaluation factors:

(1) Technical: Offers must meet or exceed the specifications in the solicitation and any subsequent amendments.

Technical Requirements are the primary determining factors of an offeror’s ability to perform. Offerors shall describe how they meet or plan to meet all mandatory requirements in the respective Statement of Work (SOW) and contract clauses. The Government will review proposals to determine whether or not an offeror has adequately demonstrated an ability to meet or exceed the Government’s requirements on Section 3 of the SOW. For each technical requirement, offers demonstrating an ability to perform will at a minimum be determined “acceptable” for that requirement task. Depending on each contractor’s capability, they may be determined to be outside the realm of acceptability and not provided an opportunity to revise their quote if discussions become necessary.

(2) Price: For offers which meet all other evaluation factors, award will be made to the low offeror based on price. Price Evaluation is to be performed by the Contract Specialist and Contracting Officer. Vendors are required to submit price quotes in accordance with the proposed CLINs structure. Vendors are to provide firm-fixed pricing for each of the CLIN’s as well as a total price for the entire effort. The Government will evaluate offers for award purpose by adding the total price for all options to the total price basic requirement.

The Contracting Officer may utilize on-line reverse auctioning as a means of conducting price discussions under this solicitation. If the Contracting Officer decides to use on-line reverse auctioning to conduct price negotiations, the Contracting Officer will notify offerors via e-mail with instructions of this decision. The Contracting Officer will provide offerors determined to be in the competitive range with information concerning the on-line auction process.

(3)Period of Performance: Offerors must meet the required delivery date, or if POP: Offerors must be able to start performance on the required period of performance.

Each offeror’s proposed price will be evaluated for reasonableness. The Government currently intends to award a contract with a period of performance of 12 months and a twelve months option period.

It is the Government’s intention to award without negotiating, under a lowest price, technically acceptable (LPTA) evaluation approach.

The Government has the option to to extend the services for this action. Therefore, FAR 52.217-8, , “Option to Extend Services Addendum”applies to this acquisition.
“The government might find it necessary to exercise FAR clause 52.217-8 “Option to Extend Services” at some point in this contract. At minimum, pricing for this clause will be evaluated in every offer prior to award as part of the pricing provided for the base year and any relevant “Option to Extend Term of the Contract” period of performance per FAR 52.217-9. Should the “Option to Extend Services” clause be exercised, pricing will follow past practices and be set at the then current rates being utilized in the contract, prorated to the Extended Services performance periods being utilized. For example, should this clause be exercised for a two month performance period to follow the option year one performance period of the contract, then the pricing would be set for two months at option year one pricing, barring the operation of other law.”

This procurement has delivery order limitation of minimum and maximum. Therefore, 52.216-19, “Order Limitations” applies to this acquisition by full text.

As prescribed in 16.506(b), insert a clause substantially the same as follows:

Order Limitations (Oct 1995)

(a) Minimum order. When the Government requires supplies or services covered by this contract in an amount of less than:

(d) Notwithstanding paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section, the Contractor shall honor any order exceeding the maximum order limitations in paragraph (b), unless that order (or orders) is returned to the ordering office within 10 days after issuance, with written notice stating the Contractor’s intent not to ship the item (or items) called for and the reasons. Upon receiving this notice, the Government may acquire the supplies or services from another source.

(End of Clause)

This procurement is a candidate for Reverse Auction. Therefore, DLAD 52.215-9023, “Reverse Auction” applies to this acquisition by full text.

As prescribed in DLAD 15.408-90(c)(1), use the following provision.

REVERSE AUCTION (NOV 2012)

The Contracting Officer may utilize on-line reverse auctioning as a means of conducting price discussions under this solicitation. If the Contracting Officer does not conduct a reverse auction, award may be made on the basis of initial offers or following discussions not using reverse auctioning as a pricing technique. If the Contracting Officer decides to use on-line reverse auctioning to conduct price negotiations, the Contracting Officer will notify offerors of this decision and the following provisions will apply.

(a) The award decision will be made in accordance with the evaluation factors as set forth in the solicitation. The reverse on-line auction will be used as a pricing technique during discussions to establish the final offered prices from each offeror. These prices will be used in conjunction with the evaluation factors stated elsewhere in the solicitation in order to make the award decision in accordance with the basis for award stated in the solicitation.

(b) Following the decision to conduct discussions using on-line reverse auctioning as a pricing technique, the Contracting Officer or his/her representative will provide offerors determined to be in the competitive range with information concerning the on-line auction process. The Government intends to use a commercial web-based product to conduct the reverse auction.

(c) Prior to or simultaneously with conducting the on-line reverse auction, the Contracting Officer may hold discussions with the offerors concerning matters appropriate for discussion, such as issues involvingtechnical proposals or unbalanced pricing.

(d) The lowest offeror’s price(s) for each round of the reverse auction will be disclosed to other offerors and anyone else having authorized access to the on-line auction. This disclosure is anonymous, meaning that each offeror’s identity will be concealed from other offerors (although it will be known to the Government; only a generic identifier will be used for each offeror’s proposed pricing, such as “Offeror A” or “lowest-priced offeror”). By submitting a proposal in response to the solicitation, offerors agree to participate in the reverse auction and that their prices may be disclosed, including to other offerors, during the reverse auction.

(e) The reverse auction system currently in use designates offers as “Lead,” meaning the current low price in that auction, or “Not Lead,” meaning not the current low price in that auction. In the event of a tie offer, the reverse auction provider’s system designates the first offer of that price as “Lead” and the second or subsequent offer of that price as “Not Lead.” Offerors shall not submit a tie offer, since this is inconsistent with the purpose of the reverse auction. If a tie offer is submitted, the “Not Lead” offeror that submitted the tie offer must offer a changed price; it will be ineligible for award if the final price in the auction is the tie offer price.

(f) An offeror’s final auction price at the close of the reverse auction will be considered its final proposal revision. No price revisions will be accepted after the close of the reverse auction, unless the Contracting Officer decides that further discussions are needed and final proposal revisions are again requested in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 15.307, or the Contracting Officer determines that it would be in the best interest of the Government to re-open the auction.

(g) The following information is provided regarding the procedures to be followed if a reverse auction is conducted.

(1) Each offeror identified by the Contracting Officer as a participant in the reverse auction will be contacted by Defense Logistic Agency’s commercial reverse auction service provider to advise the offeror of the event and to provide an explanation of the process.

(2) In order for an Offeror to participate in the reverse auction, such offeror must agree with terms and conditions of the entire solicitation, including this provision, and agree to the commercial reverse auction service provider’s terms and conditions for using its service. Information concerning the reverse auction process and the commercial service provider’s terms and conditions is embedded within the email notification sent by the on-line reverse auction pricing tool system administrator.

(3) Offerors shall secure the passwords and other confidential materials provided by the commercial reverse auction service provider or the Government and ensure they are used only for purposes of participation in the reverse auction. Offerors shall keep their own and other offerors’ pricing in confidence until after contract award.

(4) Any offeror unable to enter pricing through the commercial reverse auction service provider’s system during a reverse auction must notify the Contracting Officer or designated representative immediately. The Contracting Officer may, at his/her sole discretion, extend or re-open the reverse auction if the reason for the offeror’s inability to enter pricing is determined to be without fault on the part of the offeror and outside the offeror’s control.

(5) The reverse auction will be conducted using the commercial reverse auction service provider’s website as embedded in the email notification. Offerors shall be responsible for providing their own computer and internet connection.

(6) Training:
(i) The commercial reverse auction service provider and/or a Government representative will provide familiarization training to offerors’ employees; this training may be provided through written material, the commercial reverse auction service provider’s website, and/or other means.

(ii) An employee of an offeror who successfully completes the training shall be designated as a ‘trained offeror.’ Only trained offerors may participate in a reverse auction. The Contracting Officer reserves the right to request that offerors provide an alternate offeror employee to become a ‘trained offeror.’ The Contracting Officer also reserves the right to take away the ‘trained offeror’ designation from any trained offeror who fails to abide by the solicitation or commercial reverse auction service provider’s terms and conditions.

(End of Provision)

The resulting contract will be firm-fixed price. The period of performance will be from the date of award until contract completion.

Offerors must be submitted via one of the following methods by 12:00 PM ET, March 18, 2013: Email to: antoinette.gregg@dla.mil or carlos.vidro-martinez@dla.mil; Fax to: 703-767-1172 Attn: Antoinette Gregg or Carlos J.

Synopsis: Sources Sought
This is a Sources Sought notice intended for small businesses only. This is NOT a solicitation for proposals, proposal abstracts, or quotations. The National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is conducting market research for the purposes of identifying small businesses who have demonstrated capabilities in the area of engineering. No solicitation of offers is made by this synopsis.

Background:
The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC)/National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS) operates all of the United States operational environmental satellites from the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility (NSOF) in Suitland, MD: Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES), Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES), the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) satellite, and Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP). NESDIS also supports the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) satellite and through international agreement the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT)’s Meteorological Operational (METOP) Satellite and Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales’s (CNES) Jason-2 Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OSTM). The data gathered from these satellites allow our country’s environmental and emergency agencies to monitor and forecast hurricanes and other severe storms, monitor oceans, monitor global climate change, verify ozone depletion and land surface change, monitor critical space environmental parameters, and support search rescue efforts across the globe. NESDIS is also preparing to support such missions as Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) mission which is scheduled to launch in early 2014; Jason-3 scheduled for launch in early 2015 and the Joint Polar Satellite Systems Satellites (JPSS) scheduled to launch in 2016 as well as the GOES-R satellite system scheduled to launch in 2015.

NESDIS also operates the Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (SARSAT) Mission Control Center for the United States and its supporting ground system equipment to relay search and rescue data to emergency response agencies. The SARSAT program is an operational program managed within NOAA that utilizes NOAA’s operational weather satellites to detect and locate distress signals in the United States and around the World. NESDIS operates and maintains the operational ground system for the SARSAT program which has assets in Guam, Hawaii, California, Florida, and the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility in Suitland, Maryland.

The expected scope of this contract is to provide sustaining engineering and ground system engineering support for the two operational environmental satellite constellations GOES and POES; provide sustaining engineering support of U.S. instruments on the METOP satellites; operational and ground system engineering support for Jason-2; configuration management of mission operational databases and products for all satellite constellations; and support for future operational environmental satellite programs.

It is expected that this scope will increase over the life of the contract. Potential causes include the addition of new satellites and missions, architectural changes to existing satellites and ground systems, staffing changes within the government and other unforeseen changes to the nation’s satellite fleet.

All visitors must enter WSMR through the Las Cruces main gate (located off of US Highway 70). Visitors must stop at the WSMR Reception Center to obtain their visitor’s pass.

Safety: As a tri-service Department of Defense Range, White Sands has tested nearly every type of deployable ordnance developed in the United States since 1945. Quite a number of these munitions were deliberately designed to blend in with the terrain, and their presence may not be immediately obvious to the casual observer. Consequently, even though WSMR performs extensive Range Clearance activities, there is no assurance that any area of the Range is truly 100% free of unexploded ordnance. More information concerning unexploded ordnance hazards can be viewed at http://www.wsmr.army.mil/ux/Pages/default.aspx. The contractors are responsible to view the video found at this link under the title, UXO Hazards Video. You will be asked to sign a form, acknowledging that you have viewed this video at the check-in event. No person will be allowed to tour the range without first viewing this video.
