NAICS: 541712. This solicitation is being issued as a Request for Quote (RFQ). The associated NAICS code for this procurement is 541712, Small Business size standard of 500 employees. THE GOVERNMENT INTENDS TO AWARD THIS PURCHASE TO A SMALL BUSINESS. A major existing environmental consequence of cigarette use is the waste disposal of discarded cigarette filters, as an estimated 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are thrown away every year worldwide and 1.69 billion pounds of cigarette butts are disposed of as toxic trash each year. In addition, research has shown cigarette butt leachate to be toxic to fish. The National Environmental Policy Act requires an impact analysis on the environment as well as scenarios that could lead to human health impact for federal actions, such as tobacco product marketing authorizations. Information about the identities and amounts of constituents that leach from cigarette butts is limited and is necessary to characterize the hazard and model the fate and transport of the constituents in the environment. A preliminary study to identify leachable constituents, including harmful/potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs), from cigarette butts will provide information to design focused, high-value, cost-effective fate and effects studies when needed in the future. Under the contract, the FDA is interested in conducting a study to support characterization and quantification of specific chemical constituents and HPHCs in leachate from cigarette butts. The objectives of this study are to (1) conduct laboratory analysis of three replicates from a single cigarette butt leachate; and (2) characterize and quantify the different chemical constituents and HPHCs from the lab analysis for the leachate. The period of performance is four months: September 1, 2016, to January 5, 2017. QUOTES ARE DUE BY OR BEFORE 2:00 PM ET ON AUGUST 9, 2016.

NAICS: 562910. THE SOLICITATION FOR THE DESCRIBED REQUIREMENT WILL BE ISSUED ON OR ABOUT SEPTEMBER 23, 2016. The former Kansas Army Ammunition Plant (KSAAP) is located in Labette County, Kansas. The 1200 Area (formerly the Casing Rework Area) refers to approximately 49 acres in the south-central portion of KSAAP. Chromium contamination at the site resulted from casing rework of 105-mm cartridges, which started in Building 1206 in 1953. Part of this rework process involved cleaning the casings with a chromic acid solution, the first such reported use of this chemical in the 1200 Area. At present, the site is mostly grassland, with five brick and block buildings, a system of engineered drainage ditches, and a settling pond at the southeastern end of the site (Pond #1). Two earthen-type, unlined lagoons (SSL and NSL) located within the 1200 Area were used for settling and storage of wastewater containing chromic acid solution generated from casing reworking. Discovery of the former settling lagoons, which were filled in and abandoned after casing rework operations ceased, occurred during implementation of the Soils Corrective Measures, after the 2004 RCRA Facility Assessment and 2005 RCRA Facility Investigation. Wastewater was reportedly discharged directly into the SSL without treatment. Water from the SSL apparently did not drain off site, but instead either evaporated or was allowed to infiltrate into the ground. Detergent used in the casing rework process was discharged to a ditch that conveyed the untreated waste between the two lagoons to a point where it entered a drainage ditch on the west side of the lagoons. The rinse water was conveyed via ditch to the NSL, then treated with sodium metabisulfite prior to entry into a 30-minute retention pond, and finally treated with lime prior to discharge into a ditch on the west side of the lagoons. The drainage ditch west of the lagoons conveyed the detergent and treated rinse water to Pond #3 located to the southwest of the 1200 Area. Starting in November 2011, the USACE began the Corrective Measures Implementation (CMI), which consisted of investigation trenches and subsequent excavation of 100 by 250 feet of SSL material down to the top of the weathered limestone. The depth of excavation ranged from approximately 5 to 6 feet below ground surface (bgs). The investigation trenches were along the northern and central drainage ditches; within the NSL; and along the eastern, southern, and western boundaries of the SSL. Investigation along the effluent ditch trenches were performed to weathered limestone (1.5 feet bgs to the west, 4 to 6 feet bgs to the east) and indicated no exceedances of the soil cleanup standard for hexavalent chromium. The trench in the NSL was very shallow (1 to 1.5 feet bgs) due to the presence of limestone bedrock. No additional analysis of soils was performed in this area during CMI activities because no anomalies were visually observed. In the SSL trenches, hexavalent chromium concentrations exceeded the soil cleanup standard to bedrock. Cleanup Criteria - The 1200 Area soil cleanup criteria for non-residential use are presented in the Final Corrective Measures Decision (CMD) (EPA 2006). Hexavalent chromium is expected to be the only contaminant exceeding the cleanup criteria at the 1200 Area. There are no cleanup criteria for bedrock at the former KSAAP; however, a screening standard has been developed to verify removal of the most highly contaminated bedrock. The bedrock excavation areas shall only be sampled for hexavalent chromium with a screening standard of mg/kg. THIS SOLICITATION WILL BE SET ASIDE FOR ELIGIBLE SMALL BUSINESS CONCERNS registered under NAICS code 562910, Environmental Remediation Services (ERS). The subsequent contract will be awarded as a construction contract. The magnitude of this construction contract is estimated between $5M and $10M.

NAICS: 562910. The objective of this procurement is to obtain services for performing remedial activities (mostly Post-ROD stage) at environmentally contaminated sites predominately at Navy and Marine Corps installations. The sites will consist of those ranked on the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL), as well as non-NPL sites regulated under CERCLA, RCRA, UST, or Military Munitions Response Program and other sites that might require remediation. This contract focuses primarily on environmental restoration projects, but could involve other environmental work, such as compliance projects. The work to be ordered under this contract will be performed at various locations within Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest (NAVFAC SW) footprint (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Washington). Although these are the principal geographical areas of performance, the contractor may be required to perform at other Naval and Marine Corps activities within the NAVFAC area of responsibility; however, the majority of the work is expected to be performed in California. The NAICS Code for this acquisition is 562910. It is anticipated that the resulting contract may be A MULTIPLE-AWARD CONTRACT with a 12-month base period, and four 1-year option periods, for a total maximum contract term of five years with an aggregate maximum dollar value not to exceed $240M. THIS PROCUREMENT IS INTENDED TO BE AVAILABLE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND MAY ALSO BE AVAILABLE FOR LARGE BUSINESSES depending on the outcome of the market research process that will be described in detail at Industry Day. Industry Day will be held Monday, July 25, 2016, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM at 937 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92132, Bldg 1, 3rd Floor, Nautical Room. The purpose of this Industry Day is to provide a brief overview of the technical services required in the scope, and the evaluation process for the technical and price/cost factors using the cost model approach. A list of the various labor categories that will be used for the cost modeling is attached to the FedBizOpps notice for review and comment. Firms interested in attending Industry Day were required to register by July 14, 2016. [NO DATE IS GIVEN FOR ISSUE OF THE SOLICITATION.]
