POC: Zachary Slater, Slater.Zachary@epa.gov.

NAICS: 562910. This announcement is not a Request for Proposal; instead, EPA is requesting SF 330 submissions for review to enable the development of a "short list" of the most highly rated firms. Short-listed firms will be referred to as "selected firms." Selected firms will be invited to participate in oral presentations. The specific details on the oral presentations will be provided only to the selected firms. Selected offerors should be aware that their overall rating depends on both written submissions and their oral presentations. Following oral presentations, the proposals will then be ranked and the source-selection authority will make the final selection from among those firms. The most highly rated firm will be asked to submit a cost proposal, Conflict of Interest Plan, Quality Management Plan, Health and Safety Plan, and Representations and Certifications. The Government reserves the right to make multiple awards. If the Government elects to make multiple awards, the firms in the competitive range will be informed of the fair opportunity competition process for task orders at the time the selected firms are asked to submit their cost proposal. The contractor will also be required to have an acceptable accounting system that allows for segregation and tracking of costs. The submission of SF 330s supports EPA's requirement for professional A&E services to support remedial planning and oversight activities for hard-rock mine sites and mine-related sites in Regions 4, 6, 8, 9 and 10. Hard-rock mines are defined as non-fuel, metallic, and certain non-metallic mining activities that have been found at existing CERCLA response sites. Examples of mine types included in this definition are surface mines (open pits, strip mines, dredged mines), underground mines (shafts and tunnels), and in situ mines for one or more of the following: antimony, arsenic, asbestos, chrome, cobalt, copper, cadmium, gold, iron, lead, magnesium, mercury, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, palladium/platinum group, phosphate rock, platinum, rare earth elements, selenium, silver, sulfur, tin, titanium, tungsten, uranium, vanadium, and zinc. Mine-related facilities refers to sites where the extraction, beneficiation, and processing of the above metals and certain non-metallic, non-fuel minerals has occurred, including smelters, mine leachates/runoff, hazardous chemicals (e.g., perchlorate/ANFO from explosives), leaching pond solutions, waste rock/tailings piles, overburden, tailings disposal areas, sediments in stream channels/lakes, tailings impoundments, holding ponds/lagoons, pit lakes, retention dams, injection/extraction wells, and so forth. This contract excludes certain mine types, such as coal, sand and gravel, dimension stone, crushed stone, clay pits, quarries, and salt. The contract will be a fixed-rate, IDIQ, award-term contract. "Fixed rate" in this procurement means the labor rates will be negotiated and fixed at the contract level, inclusive of indirect costs, with the allowance for escalation for future out-years based on an agreed-upon escalation clause in the contract. The base period of performance will be three years, with award term periods of three years and four years, for a potential total period of 10 years. Work will be issued by Time and Materials, Fixed Price, or Hybrid Task Orders. The total estimated capacity of this proposed contract, including award terms, is $213,831,000, with this capacity to be divided between Regions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10. Firms interested in responding to this announcement are invited to submit a completed SF 330 (52 pages maximum) via Fedconnect at https://www.fedconnect.net/FedConnect/?doc=SOL-R9-15-00006&

NAICS: 541620. The objective of this forthcoming procurement is to acquire contractor services to provide non-personnel Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) services over a five-year period, with reports required within 30 days of a Task Order being placed. It may also include a Phase II process based on the results of the Phase I determination. Federal law [40 CFR 312] requires that federal agencies perform a Phase I ESA, which provides for due diligence or all appropriate inquiry into the previous ownership and uses of a real property. This is an effort to identify potential liability and risk associated with environmental and public health considerations concerning a property or real estate transaction. A Phase I ESA addresses the potential for or actual release of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants. It evaluates readily available evidence to determine whether substances, pollutants, or contaminants may be located on or under the property surface, and attempts to determine if existing conditions may violate known, applicable environmental laws or regulations. The results of the inquiry are issued in the Phase I ESA report. The work to be performed under this contract will be at locations throughout the State of Utah and will be identified on each Task Order that is issued. Most of the work will be performed in the following counties: Utah, Salt Lake, Summit, Wasatch, Duchesne, Uintah and Juab; however, work may be assigned in any county within the State of Utah. A determination that includes substances, pollutants, or contaminants of the property may result in a Phase II process for further testing and a separate task order may be issued. SOLICITATION R15PS001782 IS ANTICIPATED TO BE ISSUED AS A TOTAL SMALL BUSINESS SET-ASIDE, procured as a 5-year IDIQ contract. The NAICS code for this project is 541620, with a small business size standard of $15M. RFP RELEASE IS ANTICIPATED FOR THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23, 2015.

POC: Jill G. Freeman, Contract Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org, 256-895-1789; Tonju Butler, Contracting Officer, Tonju.L.Butler@usace.army.mil, 256-895-1166.

NAICS: 562910. Consistent with U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville's international missions, as documented in ER 10-1-22, there are no geographic boundaries for the acquisition of a MATOC for IRES support work assigned to the USACE; hence the term "international" environmental response services is applicable to this procurement. This acquisition is NOT intended to cover sites inside the United States and Outlying Areas as defined by FAR 2.101. The scope will require the contractors to have the capability to respond to multiple task order requests for work primarily at diverse international locations that include but are not limited to South Korea, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Poland. THIS PROCUREMENT IS AN UNRESTRICTED ACQUISITION. The proposed IDIQ MATOC consists of one one-year base period and four one-year option periods. The MATOC will be solicited and procured using Best Value Trade-Off methodology in accordance with FAR Part 15.101. Award to a target of 10 eligible offerors is anticipated; however, the Government reserves the right to select more, less, or none at all. Contractors that receive an award will be part of a contractor pool that will share the total contract capacity of $950M. Task orders issued under this MATOC will be firm-fixed-price (FFP), cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) term form, or cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) completion form, or any combination of thereof, and may include options. The Government reserves the right to make staggered awards. Later-awarded contracts will have an initial period of performance that will be less than the full three year base period in duration and will end on the same date as all other contracts that receive a basic MATOC award. Option periods will be the same for all awardees. This MATOC will provide services to safely locate, identify, recover, evaluate, manage, and make final disposition of Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC), Munitions Constituents (MC), Chemical Warfare Materiel (CWM), Depleted Uranium (DU), and Biological Warfare Materiel (BWM) under Military Munitions Response (MMR); and safely locate, identify, recover, evaluate, manage, and make final disposition of biological waste and Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste (HTRW). This MATOC will provide services to implement and conduct Environmental Compliance and Remediation Services (ECRS) involving primarily HTRW and MC; provide Other Munitions-Related Services (OMRS) involving military munitions not accounted for under MMR (e.g., anomaly avoidance, construction support, etc.); and reduce munitions stockpiles wherever they exist to include foreign jurisdictions. THIS SOLICITATION WILL BE ISSUED ON OR ABOUT DECEMBER 9, 2015, in electronic format only.
