A waterfront facility is defined as any structure located on the waterfront, in connection with, or potentially in contact with, water or the marine environment. This would include inland structures that require underwater investigations. Waterfront facilities include, but are not limited to, piers, wharves, bulkheads, quaywalls, offshore towers, dams, levees, water control structures, instrument support structures, dry docks, moorings, underwater cables, or any similar structure. All waterfront facility assessments, including underwater inspections will be performed under direct control and supervision of registered professional engineer-divers. For each underwater assessment, one registered professional engineer-diver shall be appointed as the engineer-in-charge (EIC). That EIC shall dive at least 50% of the time, supervise the writing of the detailed inspection report, and write at least 50% of the detailed inspection reports. The other engineers on-site may write the balance of the inspection report. The EIC shall ensure that all field inspection operations, including diving, are performed in accordance with
The A&E firm/team shall have the capacity to support at minimum three simultaneous facility inspections while still meeting the requirements of the contract for prime contractor performance.
B: This synopsis will result in the award of a single Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for work to be accomplished outside of the continental
Additionally, the OCONUS contract award will act as overflow support for Waterfront Inspection Services CONUS Regions 1, 2, 3 and 4. Based on an anticipated workload in those regions and in an effort to properly manage overflow in case of emergencies in regions 1, 2, 3 and 4, the OCONUS contractor may be used to supplement overflow capacity and augment services under contingency when the small business prime contractors for those regions acknowledge their inability to accept additional work due to limitations in capacity. The regional CONUS prime contractors will be given the right of first refusal of a task order in their region should their current capacity be met by other task orders currently awarded. Exercising the right of first refusal would not be a negative reflection on the small business prime and would enable solicitation to the OCONUS prime contractor, ultimately enabling the navy the ability to satisfy and meet mission needs. The final decision and approval for this overflow capacity redistribution will be made by the Contracting Officer. Each Task Order under this contract will be fixed price. Pricing information will be requested of the selected firm for each Task Order. The duration of the contract will be for one year from the date of an initial contract award (Base year), with four (4) additional one-year option ordering periods. The aggregate value of all Task Orders issued under the contract resulting from this solicitation (including any task order overflow support in CONUS regions 1, 2, 3 and 4) shall not exceed
