The Corps of Engineers seeks architect-engineering services to support the hydroelectric powerhouse and high-voltage switchyard engineering and design activities of its Northwestern Division. Bids are due May 6.

Design projects for specific facilities or projects will be assigned by task orders under the contract, the Corps said. The Corps said it intends to award one contract worth as much as $9.5 million. The contract will have a one-year base and four one-year option periods.
