NAICS: 562211. The purpose of this sources-sought synopsis is to conduct market research to determine if responsible sources exist, to assist in determining if this effort can be competitive and/or a total small business set-aside. The Air Force (AF) will use this information to determine the best acquisition strategy for this procurement. The proposed NAICS code is 562211, which has a corresponding size standard of $38.5M. The AF is interested in all small businesses, including 8(a), service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone, and woman-owned small business concerns. The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center is responsible for operation and sustainment of Minuteman III (MMIII) Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) as well as some parts of the Rocket Systems Launch Program (RSLP). It fulfills this multi-faceted mission using facilities throughout the United States. When incidents arise in the transportation of vehicles and loads including liquid and solid rocket motors, the associated hazardous waste and other hazardous materials common to vehicle accidents needs immediate response. The AF requires a rapid response and assistance if an ICBM liquid or solid rocket motor incident occurs. This response and assistance requires a competent team (referred to as the Missile Mishap Response Team (MMRT)) responsible for (a) vehicle recovery and (b) containment, cleanup, remediation, transportation, and disposal of all hazardous waste (Explosive Classification Class 1.3; solid propellants; monomethyl hydrazine nitrogen tetroxide (MMH); and diesel fuel/vehicle fluids) generated during real-world mishaps whenever or wherever assets are stored, tested, and deployed. Contractor is to provide support at locations and points between Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, California, Idaho, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Alaska, Virginia, Florida, Oregon, Tennessee, and Hawaii. (NOTE: Recovery operations at Kodiak Island, AK, Kennedy Space Center, FL, Wallops Island, VA, and the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Hawaii are deemed highly unlikely but remain possible response areas). As it is important to perform these services in a timely and competent manner, the AF requires the MMRT to complete up to four exercises per year that simulate real-world mishaps. During real-world incidents or exercises, the AF requires a positive communication link between the MMRT and appropriate parties, including the AFNWC program office. The contractor must be able to recover/transport/dispose of (and do so properly) up to 150,000 lbs of 1.3 explosive materials; 15,000 lbs of 1.1 hazardous materials; and up to 300 gallons of diesel fuel using rotator type crane/wrecker. The contractor must be able to recover vehicles of a size up to a commercial diesel truck. Interested, responsible, and capable sources may identify their interest by providing a white paper capability statement (10-page limit) with sufficient information to substantiate that respondents have all of the capabilities listed as requirements in the FedBizOpps notice. RESPONSES MUST BE RECEIVED BY OR BEFORE 4:00 PM MT ON OCTOBER 26, 2017.

NAICS: 541330. A mandatory virtual site briefing will be conducted on Wednesday, October 18, 2017. An addendum will be issued with the contact information and time for the briefing. A PowerPoint presentation and an electronic meeting room will be available to follow along during the briefing. Interested firms shall RSVP to the Julie Hendricks, Contract Administrator with all the names of the attendees on the call. PROPOSALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY OR BEFORE 4:30 PM MT ON NOVEMBER 15, 2017. This solicitation is intended to procure engineering design services and construction support for repair and modification of engineered caps at the U.S. DOE mud pit sites on Amchitka Island, Alaska. These services shall be provided by an Engineer registered in the state of Alaska. The mud pit caps addressed by this solicitation are the result of drilling performed in support of three underground nuclear tests conducted on Amchitka during the late 1960s and early 1970s by DoD and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (predecessor agency to DOE). Long Shot (approximately 80 kilotons) was detonated on October 29, 1965. Milrow (approximately 1,000 kilotons) was detonated on October 2, 1969. Cannikin (less than 5 megatons) was detonated on November 6, 1971. In addition to these three sites, drilling was performed at three other sites (D, E, and F) where nuclear testing was considered but not performed. The composition of the drilling mud used at Amchitka included 91-93% freshwater, 6-8% oil, and other additives, including cement, bentonite, diesel fuel, paper, chrome lignosulfonate, chrome lignite, and sodium bicarbonate. The drilling mud was stored near the drill sites, in unlined bermed pits excavated to hold large quantities of drilling fluid produced from drilling the boreholes. Drilling was not performed at the Rifle Range site but drilling muds from the Milrow borehole were relocated to, placed, and capped there. The seven mud pit release sites were remediated in 2001 by constructing 7 engineered caps over a total of 12 mud pits. During remediation, each mud pit was stabilized by removing standing water and mixing solidification soils into the drilling mud. Once the drilling mud was stabilized, a geosynthetic cap constructed of soil layers and a 30-mil (0.003-inch-thick) geomembrane cover was installed. All mud pit caps were revegetated using a seed mat product, North American Green SC150. The SC150 mat consisted of a control blanket manufactured with a built-in USFWS-approved seed mix. Drainage ditches and energy dissipaters were installed around the capped areas to buffer the spread of water runoff from the cap.

NAICS: 562211. The Defense Logistics Agency, Aerospace Energy intends to solicit on a COMPETITIVE 100% SMALL BUSINESS SET-ASIDE BASIS for the hazardous material disposal of approximately 25,000 pounds of monomethylhydrazine (MMH), 88,000 pounds of unsymmetrical-dimethylhydrazine (UDMH), and 2,500 pounds of aerozinehydrazine 50, (Aerozine 50, or A-50). Aerospace Energy has had these products in storage for several years; they are now off-specification and no longer suitable to sell to its customers or are excess and no longer needed. DLA Disposition Services will not accept hydrazine, a hazardous material, for disposal. The recommended methods of destruction for hydrazine are liquid injection incineration, fluidized bed incineration, or chemical neutralization. To accomplish this requirement, the estimated period of performance is approximately six months, from December 1, 2017, to May 30, 2018. More disposal time can be allotted, if needed; however, all products for disposal must be removed from DLA Energy's hydrazine contractor's site by March 31, 2018. The Government intends to award up to three firm-fixed-price contracts using FAR Part 12. THE SOLICITATION WILL BE ISSUED ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 16, 2017, on FedBizOpps.
