NAICS: 541990. This notice is a sources-sought synopsis for capabilities statements only. No contract will be awarded from this announcement. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting market research to determine capabilities and qualifications of small businesses--including small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB), veteran-owned small business (VOSB), woman-owned small business (WOSB), HUBZone, 8(a), and small disadvantage business (SDB)--in preparation for a future procurement. It is anticipated that any future contract for these services will be an IDIQ-type contract with both time & materials and fixed-price task orders, with fixed-price predominating. It is anticipated that the period of performance for these services will be a one-year base with four one-year options for a maximum potential period of performance of five years. The applicable NAICS code is 541990 (All Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services), with a size standard of $15M. Any interested firm should submit a Capabilities Statement with information that clearly demonstrates the firm's capabilities to provide the services described in the Draft Performance Work Statement attached to the notice posted on FedConnect at https://www.fedconnect.net/FedConnect/?doc=68HE0S18R0001&agency=EPA [Note: It might be necessary to copy and paste the URL into your browser for direct access]. EPA's Office of Site Remediation Enforcement (OSRE), located within the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), has primary responsibility for enforcing CERCLA and the corrective action provisions of RCRA Subtitle C, as well as underground storage tanks (USTs). OSRE serves as the primary contact for these enforcement activities, many of which involve significant or difficult financial and corporate organizational questions, within EPA regional offices. The purpose of this requirement is to supply the services of expert financial and corporate analysts for OSRE Regional Support Division (RSD) to support Superfund/CERCLA enforcement cases during every stage of enforcement actions. This support shall include expert financial analysis and verification of CERCLA ability-to-pay claimants, including the extent of their ability to fund or contribute to funding cleanup at Superfund sites; expert corporate structural analysis of companies and businesses to assist EPA in making liability determinations; and assistance during settlement negotiations and/or expert testimony at trial. The contractor must possess a high level of expertise in corporate, municipal, and individual finance and accounting, and must have expert financial analysts and economists readily available to support the EPA regional enforcement team at every stage of its enforcement action, including during a judicial proceeding if settlement efforts are unsuccessful. The contractor will be expected to confer frequently with EPA and Department of Justice enforcement case teams on issues that arise during the course of the tasks assigned, and must be able to explain to the case teams the underlying factual and economic principles applied and the methods of analysis used. The contractor must also possess a thorough understanding of the structure and operation of various corporate entities, as well as a high level of knowledge of the statutory and regulatory requirements of CERCLA, and to a lesser extent, RCRA Subtitle C and UST, so that expert advice may be rendered to enforcement personnel on corporate organizational issues that might impact enforcement. In the event that enforcement activity results in litigation, the contractor might also be directed to provide expert witness testimony. The estimated level of effort for this requirement, in professional labor hours, is 3,300 hours per year, for an approximate total of 16,500 hours over the entire period of performance, including all options. To help determine if this potential requirement may be set-aside for small business concerns, the government is seeking input from the small business community regarding their interest and capability in performing the tasks reflected in the draft PWS. CAPABILITY STATEMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 12:00 NOON ET ON NOVEMBER 22, 2017, VIA FEDCONNECT.

NAICS: 541310. The purpose of this announcement is to request new A&E qualification information for the USDA Forest Service across the State of South Carolina. This is a combination sources sought for the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests (FMS) and Savannah River Site Forest Architect & Engineer (A&E) Short Selection Database for future projects, with no specific project planned at this time. WHAT IS THE SHORT SELECTION DATABASE USED FOR? The Forest Service utilizes the Short Selection database to award AE contracts below $150,000 throughout the State of South Carolina. The FMS includes the Forest Supervisor's Office, Francis Marion National Forest, Andrew Pickens Ranger District, Enoree Ranger District, and Long Cane Ranger District and the Savannah River Site Forest, which is located on the Savannah River Site, a Department of Energy secured site. Access to the Savannah River Site requires a badge; badging requirements can be found at: http://www.srs.gov/general/tour/acceptable_id.pdf. All files and the short list database will be located in the Contracting and Engineering Department offices located at the Forest Supervisor's Office in Columbia, SC. The database contains all of the qualified, interested AE firms that respond to this notice for consideration for future approved projects falling within the NAICS codes indicated. Examples of some of the types of work include drafting existing site plans using Autocad Civil 3D based on topographical survey data, conforming to specifications, boundary surveying, field surveying, topographical engineering site surveying, surveying and recording stream data channel cross sections, grade control, stream thalweg and bankfull, geomorphic features, and stream channel shape variations up and downstream (typical to both sides), design of repairs to small dams and impoundments, control point establishments, construction survey and staking, geotechnical investigation, and environmental (RCRA, CERCLA, CWA, etc.) investigations, reviews, inventories, audits and coordination of RCRA and other waste disposal, review and design of plumbing systems, review and design of bridges (substructure, superstructure, upgrades, and replacements,) review and design of complex irrigation system(s) which may include upgrades and replacements, review and design of foundations for structures (bottomless arch culverts, and recording data for the control of future work. Also included is review and design of HVAC systems upgrades and replacements, review and design of small/large facilities/buildings (renovations and new construction), review and design of electrical systems, design of photovoltaic and other renewable energy systems, green building construction and certification consultation, renovations to improve energy efficiency and address safety concerns, energy audits and studies, wingwall systems, facilities/buildings), drafting services, design-build requests, studies, providing government with survey text and csv files, and providing cost estimates. Neither the FMS nor the Savannah River Site has maintained an AE database. Of the past three years' worth of AE projects, federal employees on the Savannah River Site performed one boundary project and the FMS solicited for three trail designs. However, future projects being considered across SC involve bridge design and abatement, boundary surveying, field surveying, topographical engineering site surveying, surveying and recording stream data channel cross sections, grade control, stream thalweg and bankfull, geomorphic features, and stream channel shape variations up and downstream (typical to both sides). For AE projects with an estimated total fee under the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (currently $150,000) agencies may review current date files for eligible AE firms, perform a technical review and evaluation to determine the three most highly qualified firms, and have discussions with the three firms to determine the best qualified firm for that particular project. A price proposal will then be requested from the highest technically rated firm. If a reasonable price cannot be negotiated, discussions will be held with the second best qualified firm, and so on. ALTHOUGH LARGE BUSINESSES MAY SUBMIT SF330S, ALL ACQUISITIONS UTILIZING THE SHORT SELECTION DATABASE SHALL BE SET-ASIDE FOR SMALL BUSINESS CONCERNS unless requirements cannot be met and the Contracting Officer obtains a proper waiver. The AE database will be maintained with filters for State, Zip Code, NAICS codes, Small Business Size, and Small Business Socio-Economic Classification. SF330s are valid for one year from the date of notification that a firm has been added to the short list database. Firms are encouraged to update their data annually. SF330 PACKAGES MUST BE RECEIVED BY 12:00 PM ET ON DECEMBER 21, 2017.
