Firm will be selected for negotiation based on demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work. The services will consist of core drilling and geotechnical subsurface sampling via continuous and/or standard SPT techniques, large diameter coring within rock units, sonic drilling, vibracoring, field and in situ testing, geophysical site investigations, field and laboratory testing of materials (including construction Q/A testing), chemical analytical laboratory testing, site preparation, and establishing coordinate locations for projects located in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Caribbean area. The primary purpose of this contract is to provide services for projects located in the geographic boundaries of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Caribbean area on land, and on protected and unprotected water. Secondarily, the contract may be used by other U.S. Army Corps of Engineers districts to provide services within the geographic boundaries of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Caribbean area. Only the firm considered highly qualified will be awarded a contract. Indefinite delivery contract will be negotiated and awarded from this solicitation with subsequent work issued by negotiating firm-fixed price task orders. This announcement will result in one contract to a highly qualified business firm. Criteria used in allocating task orders among contract include performance and quality of deliverables under current task orders, current capacity to accomplish the order in the required time, specialized experience, equitable distribution of the work among the contractors, and other relevant factors. The contract will be a period of one year from date award, with options to extend for four additional years, not to exceed a total of five years. While the estimated dollar amount per year is $1,000,000.00, the actual obligation per year may be greater than or less than $1,000,000.00. Maximum order limit is $5,000,000.00 for the life of the contract, including options.


2. PROJECT INFORMATION: The work will primarily consist of geotechnical core drilling and geotechnical subsurface sampling via continuous and/or standard SPT techniques, large diameter coring within rock units, sonic drilling, vibracoring, field and in situ testing, geophysical site investigations, field and laboratory geotechnical testing of materials (including construction Q/A testing), chemical analytical laboratory testing, site preparation, and establishing coordinate locations.
