The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast (NAVFAC SE) has been tasked to develop, solicit, and award a Design-Build (DB) and Design-Bid-Build (DBB) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) for general construction type work to be performed in the South Texas Area.
A sources sought notice for this requirement was posted under solicitation N6945017R0811 on July 31, 2017 requesting small business industry interest and capability statement. Based on responses from the notice, it was determined that the requirement should be issued as a total small business set-aside. The NAVFAC SE Small Business Office concurs with this determination.
The Request for Proposal (RFP) will be issued as a total small business set-aside.
All responsible small businesses with the specialized experience and qualifications required by the solicitation may submit a proposal to be considered by the agency. The NAICS code for this IDIQ MACC solicitation is 236220 with a size standard of $36,500,000.
This solicitation will result in the award of approximately (5) DB/DBB IDIQ MACCs, unless a number more than five (5) is determined to be in the best interest of the Government. The total aggregate value for all contracts to be awarded from any resultant solicitation is not-to-exceed (NTE) $99,000,000 over a five year ordering period. There is no yearly or per contractor limit except for the total five (5) year maximum. Task orders will be firm-fixed-priced, normally in the range of $4,000,000 to $20,000,000 per order.
However, task orders under or over these amounts may be considered if deemed to be in the Governmentâ€™s best interest.
Construction projects to be performed will primarily consist of general building type projects both vertical and horizontal construction (new construction, renovation, alteration, demolition, repair work) including but not limited to: industrial, airfield, aircraft hangar, aircraft traffic control, infrastructure, administrative, training, dormitory and community support facilities. Projects may also require comprehensive interior design and incorporation of sustainable features. Projects may include design-build, modified design-build or full plans and specifications.
Work will be performed within the South Texas Area to include but not limited to: Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Naval Air Station Kingsville and associated outlying airfields (to include Naval Reserve Centers).
Work may be required in other areas of responsibility managed by NAVFAC SE if deemed necessary and approved by the NAVFAC SE Chief of Contracting Office.
The source selection method to be used is a best value continuum process in a negotiated two-phase acquisition utilizing the trade-off approach. Formal two-phase source selection will be used to select the proposals that provide the best value to the Government from a technical and price standpoint. In accordance with FAR Subparts 15.1 and 15.3, a trade-off approach to source selection will be used for this solicitation with respect to the initial award.
Offerors selected to proceed to Phase-Two will be required to submit a technical and price proposal for a seed project.
Offerors who fail to submit a technical and a price proposal will not be considered for an award. The offeror with the best value proposal for the seed project will be awarded an IDIQ MACC with a five year ordering period, and the seed project task order. The remaining four (4) selected offerors will be awarded an IDIQ MACC for a five year ordering period with a minimum guarantee of $1,000.00 over the five (5) year period.
