FERC seeks dam safety geotechnical engineering consultant

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeks proposals from small businesses to serve as geotechnical engineering consultant to FERC’s Division of Dam Safety and Inspections. Responses are due Sept. 9.

FERC took proposals in July from small businesses to serve as an earthquake engineering consultant to the dam safety division. Last year, it recruited a dam safety civil engineer and a dam safety structural engineer in its Atlanta and Washington offices.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, FERC now seeks proposals to provide geotechnical engineering consultant services on a labor hour basis to support the Division of Dam Safety and Inspections. Work is to include in-depth review of all factors leading to a determination that a dam requires remedial measures due to geotechnical deficiencies. It also includes review of proposed remediation and construction alternatives to ensure they use best engineering practices.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. FERC14R0061 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Proposals in electronic format are due by 10 a.m., Eastern time, Sept. 9 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.
