This is a SOURCES SOUGHT SYNOPSIS for MARKET RESEARCH only.

Reference TBD.

This announcement seeks information from industry, which will be used for preliminary planning purposes. No proposals are being requested or accepted with this synopsis. THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION FOR PROPOSALS AND NO CONTRACT SHALL BE AWARDED FROM THIS SYNOPSIS. NO SOLICITATION, SPECIFICATIONS, OR DRAWINGS ARE AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME OTHER THAN WHAT IS POSTED WITH THIS NOTICE.

Responses are being sought from qualified SMALL business concerns possessing the technical/management expertise to execute the work requirements.

The attached DRAFT Performance Work Statement Outline (PWSOs) dated December 2021 (SATOC; Sacramento District) characterizes the scope of environmental remediation services necessary for performance of the requirements.

The objective of the base SATOC acquisition is to award one Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to the offeror demonstrating competence in a wide range of environmental services at various known or suspected MMRP sites and Hazardous and Toxic, (HTW) sites in the Western U.S.  In order to be eligible to bid on a task order under the IDIQ, the Contractor, or Subcontractor in charge of performing any geophysical work, must be accredited in accordance with the Department of Defense Advanced Geophysical Classification Accreditation Program (DAGCAP).  DAGCAP accreditation and AGC requirements shall be in compliance with the Office of the Secretary of Defense Policy Memo dated 11 April 2016 and the FUDS AGC Policy Memo dated 6 January 2017.

The objective of the seed task order is to complete (i) planning documentation; (ii) prescribed burning; (iii) surface MEC removal; (iv) sub-surface MEC removal in limited locations; (v) digital geophysical mapping; (vi) and remedial action reporting.  Details of the objectives will be provided in the official solicitation.  .

The base IDIQ contract awarded from the upcoming solicitation will be for a five-year ordering period. The seed task order for the MEC Remedial Action will have a three-year base period of performance and may be extended by six months. The IDIQ contracts and subsequent task orders are expected to be either Cost Reimbursible or Firm- Fixed Price (FFP) (or a combination thereof) based on the government’s assessment of risk.  The SEED Task order will be a Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) and Firm Fixed Price (FFP) ‘hybrid” acquisition.  Subsequent Task Orders may be either FFP or CPFF or both.
