The 766th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is publicizing this sources sought notice to gather industry feedback with respect to a new Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) construction vehicle aimed to provide streamlined means to complete minor construction projects for geographically separated military installations located throughout the Hawaiian Islands and Guam.

The overall program value is still under consideration; however, at this point, the magnitude of this vehicle is anticipated to range between up to $25M to $100M over the duration of the contract. Task Orders written against the vehicle are anticipated to range between $2,000 and $750,000.00 each.  The proposed bonding and insurance capacities are estimated to be up-to $2,000,000.00 for individual Task Orders, with a $10,000,000.00 aggregate per year.
