U.S. extends call for rapid-response work on dams, infrastructure in eastern states

United States Map

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to perform rapid-response services to repair and rehabilitate dams, reservoirs, and flood and hurricane protection projects in the eastern United States. Bids now are due Sept. 3.

The Corps’ Baltimore District previously called for bids by Aug. 15. It solicited information last year on small businesses able to perform the work. It also held an industry day on proposed emergency dam repair and other infrastructure work in the region.

In solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Baltimore District now seeks services within the district and the North Atlantic Division covering the U.S. east coast from Maine to Virginia. The Corps said it plans a multiple award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for five years to about five firms. Total contract capacity is estimated at $15 million.

Work would include repair, rehabilitation and new construction of Corps water resources projects. Three levels of response are envisioned: emergency flood fighting response within hours or days; rapid response for emergency repair or rehabilitation of federal and non-federal flood damage reduction projects, hurricane and shore protection projects and federal dams and reservoirs several months after an actual flood; and non-urgent but timely response for repair and rehabilitation of federal dams and reservoirs and construction of new civil works water resources projects.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DR14R0020 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses now are due by 11 a.m., Eastern time, Sept. 3. For information, contact Christopher Neville, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, 10 S. Howard St., Baltimore, MD 21203; E-mail: christopher.m.neville@usace.army.mil.
