UPDATE – FERC again extends date for hydro engineering support

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission again extended the deadline for proposals for hydroelectric environmental and engineering support services for a planned five-year program in the Office of Energy Projects.

The new due date is Aug. 17. FERC previously extended the original June 25 date to Aug. 10. (HNN 7/19/07) FERC said it expects to make an award about Oct. 1.

The hydropower regulator anticipates awarding one time-and-materials task order contract as a result of the solicitation. Work is to be performed in accordance with a technical statement of work for the Office of Energy Projects.

In addition to extending the due date for proposals, FERC assigned a new number to the solicitation. The original number was FERC07-RFP-70726. The new number is FERC07-RFP-70873.

The RFP can be obtained from FERC’s Internet site at www.ferc.gov/about/offices/oed/oed-proc/hydro-env-and-eng-support-services.asp. In addition, FERC has posted on that site a question-and-answer document posed by potential bidders.

Proposals must be hand delivered by 3 p.m. Aug. 17 to FERC, Attn.: Kevin Woody, 888 First St., N.E., Suite 41-29, Washington, DC 20426; (1) 202-502-6715; E-mail: [email protected]. For documentation purposes, FERC is directing bidders to use e-mail when contacting Woody.
