The responses will help GSA to determine the level of industry interest by socio-economic categories within the small business communities. 

This procurement is anticipated to be assigned to North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code 236220, Commercial and Institutional Building Construction. The small business size standard is $39.5M (million).

GSA anticipates awarding between 5 and 6 separate contracts as a result of the solicitation. Total contract length will be for five (5) years. Awarded contractors are expected to compete by participation in task order solicitations. Task Order solicitations will be issued by GSA offices assigned to the Acquisition Division within Region 10. Project delivery includes non-­complex construction, design-­bid­-build, and design-­build. Task orders will be issued as Firm Fixed Price (FFP).  Offerors awarded a contract are expected to participate in all Task Order Request for Proposals (TORFP’s) issued unless capacity would prevent successful project completion.  

The aggregate contract ceiling for this IDIQ is $50 million dollars. The Government makes no representation as to the number of Task Orders or actual amount of work to be ordered, however, a minimum of $2,500 is established as the minimum guarantee for the placement of the contract. Contractors participating in all TORFP’s, but which have not been awarded a TO in the first calendar year will be eligible to receive the funding for the minimum guarantee beginning in calendar year two (2). The “Order of Magnitude” for task orders is anticipated to range from $50,000 to the GSA current capital reinvestment threshold (“prospectus”), presently $3.375 million. Task Orders may not exceed $5 million per single contract.  The average Task Order is expected to have an Order of Magnitude of $50,000 – $250,000 with an estimated volume of 30 Task Orders per calendar year.
