The Bureau of Reclamation is soliciting information it plans to use to prepare an upcoming procurement for new static excitation systems at the 300-MW New Melones hydropower plant in California. Responses to the market survey are due Jan. 16.
BuRec issued a pre-solicitation notice for the work in July 2008 but never issued a solicitation. (HNN 7/15/08)
The agency anticipates it will seek a contractor to remove and dispose of static excitation equipment from two 192-megavolt-ampere generators in New Melones, part of the Central Valley Project on the Stanislaus River. The contractor also would furnish, install, and test new static excitation systems, including transformers, circuit breakers, and digital voltage regulators.
BuRec said the market survey is not a request for proposals but a research tool to determine potential sources and interested parties for an intended procurement. BuRec estimates the value of the intended procurement could be as much as $5 million.
If a solicitation is issued, it would be posted on the Department of Interior’s electronic acquisition system Internet site, http://ideasec.nbc.gov. Prospective contractors must register in the government’s Central Contractor Registration database, www.ccr.gov.
Responses are due Jan. 16 by e-mail to Teena Glasper, Contract Specialist, Mid-Pacific Regional Office, Bureau of Reclamation, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities’ Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation number 09PS200100 in the ï¿½Quick Searchï¿½ box.
