Firms sought for hydrologic, water management at Corps projects

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on architect-engineering firms capable of providing a full spectrum of hydrologic and water management services to Corps projects in the West. Responses are due Aug. 22.

The Corps’ Sacramento District issued a sources sought notice to determine whether a minimum of three highly qualified small businesses are able to perform the planned services. Information received is to determine the type of small business set-aside for a subsequent solicitation.

The work is proposed mainly in northern and central California, although some might fall in other areas of the Corps’ Sacramento District, which includes parts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, and Oregon. The contract period is to be for five years and not to exceed $7.5 million.

Minimum capabilities include: flow frequency analyses; rainfall-runoff modeling; probable maximum precipitation and flood estimates for dam spillway design; development of unregulated flow from data; regulated frequency curves; flow duration analyses; risk-based analyses of water resources projects; water control plans and diagrams for reservoirs; and reservoir sizing for flood control, water supply, and environmental enhancements.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9123812S0221 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
