Description: National Aeronautics and Space Administration

George C. Marshall Space Flight Center

Procurement Office

NASA/MSFC has a requirement for continued support of Architect-Engineer (A/E) Miscellaneous Environmental Engineering and Occupational Health Services at Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) located in California, Marshall Space Flight Center, Alabama and other NASA centers and installations under the current contract which provides engineers with environmental compliance experience, professionals with experience in Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) or Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) investigation/clean-up, natural resources specialists, cultural resources specialists, chemists, risk assessors, community relations specialists, and hydrogeologists. Registered, licensed professionals will oversee all work under this contract and will stamp all prepared documents. These activities emphasize supporting the missions of MSFC and other NASA installations in a safe, reliable and timely manner. The A/E services will include the range of tasks outlined as follows: 1. Conduct studies and prepare permit applications, plans, and reports in support of environmental compliance activities at MSFC. Compliance activities include Clean Air Act permits and reports, Clean Water Act permits and reports, pollution prevention, natural and cultural resource management, energy management and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation, and other Federal, State and local regulations. 2. Prepare documentation as required under either federal or state implemented RCRA and CERCLA; perform field investigations; analytical laboratory services; groundwater modeling; environmental studies; perform risk assessments and risk evaluations; treatability tests; demonstration projects; corrective measures studies; feasibility studies; engineering design documentation; munitions and explosives of concern investigations; and construction/remediation oversight. 3. Prepare ISO 9000 and ISO 14000-based or compatible environmental management system documents. 4. Conduct environmental compliance audits and root cause analysis. 5. Perform Environmental Engineering feasibility and cost studies and prepare Preliminary Engineering Report (PER's) and final design packages for environmental, energy, and other engineering-related projects at MSFC. The A/E contract is a Firm-Fixed Price Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract. NASA/MSFC intends to increase the ID/IQ contract ceiling by $14M for Option Year 4 which is required because the limit of the contract has been reached and there still remains a requirement for Miscellaneous Environmental Engineering and Occupational Health Services during the remaining 8 months. At this time, there is no intention to extend the period of performance of the current contract from June 1, 2010 through May 31, 2015 and no new noncompetitive contract instrument will be awarded with approval of this action. The contract will be modified to increase the ID/IQ Maximum Amount only. Without approval of this action, the current contract ceiling will be expended in September 2014, in advance of the current option year 4 and final contract period of performance (May 31, 2015) which would result in a stoppage in contract performance. This will allow for continuation and stability of these services to ensure mission critical environmental engineering and occupational health services goals are met. As the current A/E contractor, CH2M Hill, Inc. (CH2M) is uniquely positioned to continue providing A/E services in support of Marshall Space Flight Center, Alabama and other NASA centers and installations. Use of CH2Ms existing and proven capabilities will permit the timely execution of significant tasks that are necessary for achieving NASA/MSFC milestones. A re-competition of the A/E contract would introduce considerable schedule risks and unacceptable delays to the program and mission goals. The government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. This synopsis is for information only due to the nature of the environmental remediation effort ongoing at SSFL. Federal and State environmental laws require remediation of the affected areas followed by a period of monitoring. California law requires that remediation be sustained, without cessation, through completion. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall be considered by the agency. NASA clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable.
