Note: This solicitation and award is restricted in accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(4) International Agreement, to Danish and Greenlandic firms ONLY.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District intends to issue an Invitation for Bids solicitation package seeking to award a firm-fixed price contract for the construction of the installation of an automatic, supervised sprinkler system in the entire M-Plant facility covering 25,619 square feet. The system shall include a clean agent fire suppression system in the Electrical Room which is approximately 1,561 square feet. The clean agent fire suppression system must be configured to engage an appropriate number of degrees prior to the sprinkler system. The sprinkler system consists of, but not limited to, sprinkler central, main, and distribution pipes and fittings, hangars and sprinkler heads. The project includes the installation of the control system and sensors, flow and tamper switches, and heat tracing.

The construction season is short at Thule Air Base. General Conditions at Thule Air Base are as follows: the location of Thule Air Base limits exterior work to the months of June through September, although work is sometimes possible in May or October. Additionally, Thule's location demands that all supplies & personnel must be shipped and/or transported, in or out, via air and/or sealift. Thule Air Base is not a commercial air/sea port and there is no other access. Shipping schedules are dictated by Defense contracts, and materials and labor are not available locally. The region is glaciated and the existing soil is generally permafrost, which exists from 1 to 6 feet below the surface and to a measured depth of 1,600 feet. Average winter temperature is 20-30 degrees F below zero while average summer temperature is 40-50 degrees F above zero. One annual military cargo sealift departs from Norfolk, Virginia to Thule AB, approximately 1 July. There are two sealifts that go from Denmark to Thule AB, one in July and one in August, approximately. Airlifting any materials or equipment via military aircraft is very expensive and only on an emergency-need basis.

The project magnitude is between $500,000 and $1,000,000. The performance period for this project is approximately 400 calendar days from the Notice to Proceed date. The specifications will be posted electronically via the Federal Business Opportunity website at on or about 13 August 2017 with a bid opening in Denmark, on or about 13 September 2017, with the location and room to be confirmed and announced. Any and all amendments shall be likewise posted. Hard copies will not be available. It is the contractor's responsibility to monitor the FBO web site for any amendments.
