The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers intends to solicit for and award a firm, fixed-price Indefinite Delivery Indefinite, Quantity (IDIQ), Multiple-Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) which will be awarded using the Best Value Trade-Off Process. The MATOC is for design-build construction services to meet the requirements and time constraints for military, civil, and Interagency and International Services (IIS) customers within Southwestern Division (SWD) Boundaries, and mainly for Tulsa District customers.

The first phase consists of a process known in commercial design-build as the “Request for Qualifications” or the acronym: “RFQ”. This solicitation refers to it as “Phase 1”. In Phase 1 of the 2 phase design-build selection procedure, interested firms or joint venture entities (referred to as “Offerors”) submit specified performance capability proposals demonstrating their capability to successfully execute the design-build construction contract resulting from this solicitation. The Phase 1 Evaluation Criteria consists of four (4) factors: Construction Past Performance, Corporate Relevant Specialized Experience, Design Support and Management Effectiveness. The Government will evaluate the qualifications in accordance with the criteria described in the solicitation and will select a maximum of five of the most qualified offerors to submit offers in Phase 2.

Phase 2 proposals will include a technical solution to a design-build project, the remaining performance capability proposals which include the identification of key subcontractors, and price proposals for consideration. The Government will evaluate the proposals in accordance with the criteria described in the solicitation. The Phase 2 Evaluation Criteria consists of five (5) factors: Initial/Sample Task Order Technical Solution, Key Subcontractors, Proposed Contract Duration and Preliminary Schedule, Relevant Specialized Experience for Initial/Sample Task Order Project, and Phase 1 Proposal Roll-Up Rating. Price information will be evaluated for fairness, reasonableness, and for material unbalancing, as described in the Phase 2 section of the solicitation.

This is a negotiated procurement. The solicitation will be issued as a Request for Proposal (RFP) utilizing FAR Part 15. All responsible sources may submit a proposal, which shall be considered by the agency in accordance with the conditions and criteria specified in the Solicitation.
