***This is a request for interested parties only, this is NOT a request for proposals***

The U.S General Services Administration, Great Lakes Region, is issuing a Sources Sought Announcement for a Job Order Contract (JOC) at the Hart-Dole-Inouye Federal Center in Battle Creek, Michigan. This sources sought synopsis serves as a means of conducting market research to identify parties having an interest in the requirement below.

The General Services Administration (GSA) is considering utilization of Job Order Contracting (JOC) as a government-wide contracting method to procure minor construction repair and renovation services. GSA envisions awarding a long term JOC contract for the above referenced facility to a qualified company, so that Federal Agencies can then leverage for project delivery via establishment of short term (single project) task orders.

The type of JOC we envision is a competitively bid, fixed unit price and rate multiple-year, single award construction contract, wherein qualified companies agree to provide a broad range of possible routine, non-complex repair/renovation projects based on pre-established unit prices and rates. Contract line items and unit prices would be defined by a construction unit price book (UPB) or similar extensive list (reference list) and a multiplier or coefficient applied to the reference unit prices. The reference lists/UPBs are often referred to as construction catalogs or automated cost databases, and most established UPBs have a city cost index to localize pricing. The multiplier or coefficient reflects overhead, profit, general and administrative costs, uncertainty in costs, etc. The resulting contract unit prices (i.e., reference list item prices x coefficient) are then used to price construction task orders that are within the scope of the JOC contract.

THERE IS NO SOLICITATION AT THIS TIME. This request for capability information does not constitute a request for proposals; submission of any information in response to this market survey is purely voluntary; the government assumes no financial responsibility for any costs incurred.

The government will evaluate market information to ascertain potential market capacity to provide services consistent in scope and scale with those described in this notice and otherwise anticipated.
BASED ON THE RESPONSES TO THIS SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE/MARKET RESEARCH, THIS REQUIREMENT MAY BE SET-ASIDE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES OR PROCURED THROUGH FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION. Telephone inquiries will not be accepted or acknowledged, and no feedback or evaluations will be provided to companies regarding their submissions.

Those wishing to identify their capability to provide the aforementioned services should respond to this announcement via email to della.ljungkull@gsa.gov no later than December 5, 2018 at 2:00 PM (Central Standard Time).

Interested parties should provide the following: Company Name, Company Address, Point of Contact, phone number and email address, DUNS number and capability statement for the services as stated above. Additionally include: three customer references to which you have provided similar services, and your company business size pursuant to the following questions: (1) Is your business large or small, (2) If small, does your firm qualify as a small, emerging business or small disadvantaged business?
