Description

THIS IS A SPECIAL NOTICE PREPARED IN ACCORDANCE WITH FEDERAL ACQUISITION REGULATION (FAR) SUBPART 5.2 “SYNOPSES OF PROPOSED CONTRACT ACTIONS”



NAICS 541720, Research and Development in the Social Sciences and Humanities



Response Deadline: 24 May 2022



The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Portland District (NWP) intends to negotiate/award a firm-fixed price (FFP) service, single source procurement to the Yakama Nation for contribution of traditional knowledge in support of the Wana Pa Koot Koot (WPKK) Cooperating Group meetings and site visits.



REASON FOR SOLE SOURCE ACQUISITION:



The statutory authority for this non-competitive acquisition is FAR 13.106-1(b)(i), Soliciting from a single source for purchases not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold.



The purpose is to provide technical services specific to the Yakama Nation, to support the Federal Columbia River Power System Cultural Resources Program.



Background: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) (Agencies) are jointly responsible for compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) under the terms of the 2009 Systemwide Programmatic Agreement (SWPA) for management of historic properties affected by operations of the Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS). The USACE, Northwestern Portland District manages The Bonneville, The Dalles, and John Day Projects, which are part of the FCRPS. The FCRPS Cultural Resource Program works closely with interested and affected tribes, State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs), and other agencies for cultural resource management in compliance with Section 106 of the NHPA.



Justification: The Yakama Nation possesses unique knowledge of its ancestral artifacts, village sites, prehistoric burial areas, and areas of traditional cultural properties and resources that exist within and overlap the project area.



Impact: Failure to utilize the Yakama Nation’s knowledge of its archeological sites and resources would delay the USACE in being able to make required long term management strategies for the area and impact compliance with NHPA Section 106 under the terms of the 2009 Systemwide Programmatic Agreement for management of historic properties affected by operation and maintenance of the FCRPS. Furthermore, the Government relations with the Yakama Nation would be negatively impacted.



The Government intends to solicit the Yakama Nation directly for this project on or around 25-MAY-2022. At this time, a solicitation does not exist. All responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, or quotation, which shall be considered by the agency.



*NO PHONE INQUIRIES, PLEASE.

The Government will evaluate the capabilities of an interested party based on their ability to demonstrate substantial knowledge of the Yakama Nation’s history, village sites, artifact locations, burial locations, and areas of traditional cultural properties.
