U.S. seeks firms for habitat creation on Lower Colorado River


The Bureau of Reclamation seeks information on firms capable of performing design and construction of habitat creation projects on the Lower Colorado River in three states. Responses are due Dec. 27. 

Reclamation is tasked with creating or conserving thousands of acres of riparian, marsh and backwater habitats between 2,078-MW Hoover Dam and the U.S. border with Mexico. The Lower Colorado is a highly regulated river system that is managed to meet the water and power demands of Nevada, Arizona and California

Reclamation seeks information on firms that are able to provide architect and engineering design services to support habitat creation in the Lower Colorado Region. It plans to use responses to a sources sought notice to determine an appropriate procurement strategy.

The agency anticipates awarding an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract to a firm with expertise in civil and hydraulic engineering, ecology, geomorphology, riparian biology, geographic information systems and landscape architecture.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R14PS00024 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Responses are due by mail or e-mail by noon Dec. 27. For information, contact Elizabeth Bailey, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, Lower Colorado Regional Office, P.O. Box 61470, Boulder City, NV 89006-1470; (1) 702-293-8460; E-mail: eebailey@usbr.gov.
