6) Safety: Submit Experience Modification Rates (EMR) and OSHA Days Away from Work, Restricted Duty, or Transfer (DART) rates for each of calendar years 2017, 2018, and current data for 2019.
For any EMR greater than 1.0, any DART rate of 3.0 or greater, or any TRC rate of 4.0 or greater, provide an explanation to address the extenuating circumstances that affected the rate and any corrective actions taken. Instructions for calculating the DART and TRC rate can be found at http://www.bls.gov/iif/osheval.htm. For joint ventures or mentor-protÃ©gÃ© agreements, provide the required information for each entity in the joint venture or MPA. NAVFAC may make an acquisition strategy determination that excludes contractors that do not submit the required information or contractors with unexplained high EMR, DART, or TRC rates from the pool of sufficiently qualified contractors.
In sections where recent experience is requested, all experience will be evaluated for market research purposes only.
Firms are advised that while experience older than five years or not yet 100% complete may demonstrate capability to perform the scope of work, it may not indicate that the firm could be competitive during a future solicitation where only the most recent five years of experience will be accepted. NAVFAC may make an acquisition strategy determination based on the likelihood that a sufficient pool of qualified contractors will be competitive on a future solicitation.
