DESCRIPTION: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Louisville District intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) W5J9JE-14-R-0005 for the Medical Branch School located in Kabul, Afghanistan. The project is defined as the design, material, labor and equipment to construction buildings, parking, utilities and other infrastructure for a design population of 650 personnel. All utilities shall be complete and operational prior to occupancy. It is the contractor's responsibility to ensure that the designs are complete and are in compliance with the latest applicable buildings codes and regulations. This project is the re-solicitation of a previously terminated contract. The previous contract completed some foundational work, but the contractor shall verify that all work meets design requirements and shall be responsible for any deficiencies.

TYPE OF CONTRACT AND NAICS: This RFP will be for one (1) Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP) contract. The North American Industrial Classification System Code (NAICS) for this effort is 236220 - Commercial and Institutional Building Construction.

TYPE OF SET-ASIDE: This acquisition will be UNRESTRICTED, full and open, best value competition, no set-aside.

SELECTION PROCESS: This is a 2-Phase Best Value selection process. This process requires potential Offerors to submit their performance and capability information initially for review and consideration by the Government. Following the evaluation and rating of the Phase I proposals, the Government will select a maximum of seven (7) highest rated Offerors to provide Phase II technical and cost proposals for consideration by the Government. The result of the Phase I review will be posted on the website. The technical information contained in the Phase II proposals will be reviewed, evaluated, and rated by the Government. The final evaluation rating used for comparison, selection, and award will reflect the evaluation rating received in Phase II only. The proposal requirement for this 2-Phase procurement consists of the following: Phase I Proposal - Relevant Experience of the Prime Contractor, Prime Contractor Past Performance, and Specialized Experience (Key Personnel); Phase II Proposal - Schedule and Price. For Phase II, all evaluation factors, other than cost or price, when combined, are significantly less important than cost or price.
