WASHINGTON 1/5/12 (PennWell) –- The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeks information on firms capable of providing hydroelectric environmental and engineering support services for a five-year program in FERC's Office of Energy Projects. Responses are due Jan. 20.

The solicitation is a "follow-on" procurement to an original $18 million contract for the work awarded in 2007 to the Louis Berger Group. That contract is in its fourth option year, which is due to expire Sept. 30, 2012.

Although it has not finalized its acquisition strategy, FERC said it anticipates awarding one time-and-materials task order contract with a base year and four option years. Work is to be performed in accordance with a technical statement of work for the Office of Energy Projects.

The commission said it expects to issue a request for proposals in April with bids to be due in June and a contract award in August.

FERC now seeks information on firms capable of providing the services. A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. HEES-Presolicit-Notice in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses in electronic format are due Jan. 20 to the address below. For information, contact Contracting Officer Glenn Emig, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Procurement Division, 888 First St., N.E., Suite 4J, Washington, DC 20426; (1) 202-502-8669; E-mail: glenn.emig@ferc.gov.
