U.S. seeks firms able to perform hydropower, pumping plant engineering

Corps of Engineers Castle

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms capable of providing hydroelectric power and pumping plant engineering, design, and analysis services. Responses are due April 10.

The Corps' Portland District recruited architect-engineering firms in 2009 for similar work in support of the Corps' Hydroelectric Design Center and its Hydropower Analysis Center, located in Portland.

The Hydroelectric Design Center took bids in 2012 for development of an organizational management study of restructuring the center's Generic Maintenance Team. In January, the Portland District took bids for emergency rehabilitation or replacement of hydroelectric turbines, generators, and pump motors in the Corps' Northwestern Region.

In a sources sought notice, the Portland District now seeks information on firms able to provide the architect-engineering services in support of the Corps' national hydroelectric powerhouse and pumping plant engineering, design, and analysis activities. The Corps plans to use the information to determine if there is sufficient competition among potential contractors.

The Corps said it plans to award up to two five-year indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contracts valued at $9 million each.

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9127N14R0027 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box. Responses are due by e-mail to the address below by 2 p.m., Pacific time, April 10.

For information, contact Kathleen Seitz, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, Contracting Division, CECT-NWP-C, 333 S.W. 1st Ave., Portland, OR 97204; (1) 503-808-4628; E-mail: kathleen.d.seitz@usace.army.mil.
