FERC seeks dam safety earthquake engineering consultant


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeks proposals from small businesses to serve as earthquake engineering consultant to FERC’s Division of Dam Safety and Inspections. Responses are due July 8.

FERC last year recruited a dam safety civil engineer and a dam safety structural engineer in its Atlanta and Washington offices. In 2012, it sought information on firms to provide hydroelectric environmental and engineering support services for FERC’s Office of Energy Projects.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, FERC now seeks proposals to provide geotechnical earthquake engineering support to the Division of Dam Safety and Inspections. It is to support reviews of all factors leading to determination that a dam requires remedial measures due to seismic forces, as well as reviews of proposed remediation and construction alternatives.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. FERC14R0002 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Proposals in electronic format are due by 10 a.m., Eastern time, July 8 to the address below. For information, contact Contracting Officer Glenn Emig, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Procurement Division, 888 First St., N.E., Suite 4J, Washington, DC 20426; (1) 202-502-8669; E-mail: glenn.emig@ferc.gov.
