SOL: Sources_Sought_South_Florida
DUE: Feb 7, 2020 NAICS Code: 562211. The intent of this sources sought is to identify qualified small businesses, specifically 8(a), HUBZone, woman-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, for hazardous waste removal, transportation, and disposal services. This sources sought also seeks to identify any capable small business that can perform these services with limitations on subcontracting. The scope of work requires the transportation and disposal of RCRA hazardous wastes, non-RCRA wastes, compressed gas cylinders, state-regulated waste, non-hazardous waste, and PCBs in South Florida and surrounding areas. The OSD-issued Class Deviation 2019-O0003, Revision 1 (08JAN2019) will have a significant impact on set-aside options for this requirement in that the Offeror/Contractor agrees to not pay more than 50% of the amount paid by the Government for contract performance to subcontractors that are not similarly situated entities. Contractors may be subject to a minimum $500,000 fine if awarded a contract with this clause and do not meet the requirement. DLA has identified the majority of RCRA TSDFs (Treatment, Storage, Disposal Facilities) in the industry as large businesses. All TSDFs used during the performance of this contract must be approved and listed on the Qualified Facilities List at . Given the lack of small business ownership of TSDFs and with disposal costs making up a large portion of the contract dollar value, there is a reasonable probability that a small business would pay more than 50% of the cost of the contract to large businesses. The Government intends to award a firm-fixed-price IDIQ services contract having one 30-month base period, followed by one 30-month option period. No solicitation is available at this time. If your firm would like to respond to this sources sought, but is unable to meet the limitations on subcontracting, please email a Notification of Interest (a capabilities package is not required). Interested firms must demonstrate their ability to perform the requested services by submitting a brief capabilities package UNLESS your firm is capable of performing the requested services without the limitations on subcontracting; in that case, the capabilities package is not required. SUBMITTALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 3:00 PM ET ON FEBRUARY 7, 2020. Late responses will not be accepted. Upon review of industry responses, the Government will determine whether a set-aside is in the Government's best interest.

NAICS: 541620. Via this sources sought, U.S. EPA is performing market research for small businesses in preparation for a future procurement for support to EPA's Office of Water with section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA), the regulatory program that permits a wide range of projects that impact waters of the United States. EPA reviews public notices for proposed projects and policies, approves assumption of the permit program and works with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) or states on ways to more efficiently and effectively implement the 404 program. One of the key components of the Guidelines ( ) analysis is review of projects for additional potential avoidance and minimization of impacts to waters of the U.S. Identifying and comparing project-specific opportunities for additional avoidance and minimization often requires advanced technical knowledge of the design and implementation of the proposed activities. Given the complexity of some of these projects and proposals, EPA is seeking technical expertise for the review of proposed activities requiring authorization under section 404 of the CWA. Common activities under review include transportation infrastructure development, residential and commercial developments, and mineral and coal mines and facilities. Based on the circumstances of the proposed project and impacts, review of these projects may focus on the identification of jurisdictional waters on site; direct impacts to aquatic resources; effects on the physical, chemical, and biological integrity of downstream waters; and/or secondary and cumulative environmental impacts. In addition to review of specific project materials, EPA may review permitting practices to better understand direct, secondary, and cumulative impacts associated with categories of projects or review the ecological condition of past mitigation projects. EPA needs support in the review process and/or development of technical manuals, peer-reviewed publications, trainings, and/or work with the Corps to develop or revise regulations or guidance documents. To support these project-specific and general policy reviews, EPA seeks technical assessments of site hydrology, construction, development, mine design and operation, wastewater treatment practices, compensatory mitigation practices, and watershed condition and projected change in condition. EPA seeks site assessment expertise for field investigation and reporting for aquatic resource mapping, structural and functional characteristics, and relationships to other waters and ecological resources. EPA needs support in evaluating project costs or other economic costs and benefits, and in the development and delivery of trainings on any of the aforementioned topics.

SOL: EP-D-10-042
NAICS: 541620. U.S. EPA uses contractor support for Regulatory, Analytical, and Evaluation Support Services for Radiation Protection Programs under the current contract, EP-D-10-042. The mission of the Radiation Protection Division of the Office of Radiation and Indoor Air (ORIA) is to establish and manage a national program to ensure that public health and the environment are protected from the risks of unnecessary exposure to ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. ORIA accomplishes its mission by developing and implementing standards and guidance, fostering the use of innovative technologies, and serving as a reliable source of credible information on issues related to radiation protection. Major program areas include (1) Radioactive Waste Disposal and Management (e.g., WIPP, Yucca Mountain, TENORM, Low Activity Waste, clean materials, disposal of waste from weapons of mass destruction); (2) Cleanup (e.g., radioactively contaminated sites, federal guidance, technology assessment, risk modeling); (3) Air Toxics [e.g., NESHAPs (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants)]; and (4) related areas (e.g., modeling, risk assessment, risk harmonization, Toxics Release Inventory, radiation information management). Contractor support is used for development and implementation of regulations and guidance; development and support of voluntary partnerships and programs; evaluation and characterization of radiation sources and their disposition through the environment; development of guidance and site-specific analyses associated with remediation; evaluation of innovative technologies; and provision of reliable public information on issues related to radiation protection. The period of performance of the current contract, EP-D-10-042, ends February 26, 2020. The Government intends to compete, negotiate, and award a follow-on five-year contract in accordance with FAR. However, due to delays in the acquisition process, the contract for follow-on services will not be awarded prior to Contract EP-D-10-042's current expiration date of Feb 26, 2020. The services of the contract are critical and cannot lapse; therefore, EPA must extend the period of performance of the current contract for approximately four months to allow time for the new follow-on contract to be awarded. EPA intends to negotiate this period of performance extension on a sole-source basis. The intent of this notice is to alert the vendor community to the extension of contract EP-D-10-042 and to the upcoming competitive opportunity for its follow-on.
