The New York District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) proposes to perform maintenance dredging of Sandy Hook Channel, in the New York Harbor Federal Navigation Project, with subsequent placement of the dredged material at the Sea Bright Offshore Borrow Area (SBOBA). The proposed maintenance dredging would remove approximately 350,000 cubic yards of sediment to a depth of -35 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) plus 2 ft of allowable overdepth. The dredged material consists primarily of sand.

Based on past cycles of the proposed work in Sandy Hook Channel, it is recommended that the work be performed by large mechanical dredge. Additional multiple barges and tug boats may be needed to perform the work during dredging, transport and placement of the dredged material.

The Contractor will be required to commence work within five (5) calendar days after the date of receipt by him of the notice to proceed. The contractor will be required to prosecute said work diligently and to complete the basic work ready for use not later than sixty (60) calendar days after the receipt of the notice to proceed (NTP). The contractor is required to maintain an integrated production of at least 8,000 cubic yards per calendar day for the dredging and placement of the sand at the SBOBA.

The magnitude of construction for this project is between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000.

Plans and specifications for the subject project would be available mid June 2017, with bid opening on or about 17 July 2017. It is the intention of the Government to award in July 2017 and issue the NTP on or about 15 September 2017.

Liquidated Damages of $1,915.00 per calendar day of delay will be assessed to the contractor until all work under the contract is accepted as complete.

This procurement is being solicited under 100% Full and Open Competition. The apparent low bidder will be required to submit a subcontracting plan upon request by the Contracting Officer. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 237990. The business size standard is $27,500,000. The SIC CODE is 1629.
