Indefinite delivery contracts will be negotiated and awarded with a base period of five (5) years with no option periods. It is the Government's intent to award up to three (3) AE single award indefinite delivery task order contracts with a not-to-exceed shared capacity of $9,900,000. The Government obligates itself to obtain no less than $2,500 in services. The contracts are anticipated to be awarded in January 2020. After contracts are awarded, work will be issued by negotiated firm fixed-price task orders. When deciding which Indefinite Delivery contract will be selected to negotiate an order, the Government will consider the following: current capacity to accomplish the order in the required time, unique specialized experience, and quality of performance under the other task orders. North American Industry Classification System Code (NAICS) is 541370 - Surveying and Mapping Services, which has a size standard of $15 million in average annual receipts. In compliance with DFARS 219.502-1, this requirement is set aside for small business entities.

(b) Geographic proximity in relation to the location of the work
(c) Volume of recent DoD contract awards.

SF330 requirement: Provide a minimum of one (1) individual / up to a maximum of two (2) individuals per discipline for each of the key personnel disciplines identified below. Firms will not be evaluated more favorably for identifying additional Key Personnel beyond those identified here. Identified key personnel will be more highly evaluated if he or she participated in the firm's sample projects submitted in the SF 330 Section F. Use a separate Section E for each individual. Do not generalize professional registrations or certifications but provide specific details. Key personnel are: Geotechnical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Licensed Professional Land Surveyor (LPLS), Surveying / Engineering Technician (CAD), Cartographic Technician (CAD/GIS), Survey Party Chief, Photogrammetrist, and GIST Specialist. The Geotechnical and Civil Engineer must be a registered professional that is licensed to practice civil engineering with knowledge in soil mechanics and experience with geotechnical conditions. The Surveyor must be a Licensed Professional Land Surveyor (LPLS). For purposes of selection criteria, the use of the term "registered" or "licensed" means a Professional Engineer or Land Surveyor that is registered to practice in the particular discipline in a State, the District of Columbia, or an outlying area of the United States. Key personnel are as follows:

(c) Past Performance of the firm for similar work

Firms will be evaluated on past performance for quality of work products, compliance to project schedules, and effectiveness of management. Past performance evaluations will be retrieved through the Government's Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) and managed through the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS). PPIRS is the primary source of information on past performance. Performance evaluations for any significant subconsultants may also be considered.

The evaluation will consider past performance from other sources. The relevancy of past performance information will be considered. The more relevant the information, the more weight it carries. NOTE: if no relevant past performance information is available to evaluate, or if the record is so sparse such that no meaningful rating can be reasonably assigned, the offeror will be assigned a rating of neutral and shall not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably.

SF330 requirement: Past performance data for example projects presented under Part I, Section F of the SF330 will be considered. Performance evaluations will be queried for all firms. Any credible, documented information on past performance may be submitted, but the Government is not required to seek other information on past performance if none is available through PPIRS. (Note: Past Performance Questionnaires (PPQ) can be submitted to provide or supplement a firms past performance with other than U.S. Governmental clients. Firms which choose to use the PPQ may obtain a PPQ standard form by submitting a request to the below referenced POC via email.).

Firms will be evaluated on their capacity to accomplish multiple task orders simultaneously in multiple locations. Capacity shall be demonstrated by professional services such as geotechnical investigations / engineer, topographic survey, orthophotography, cadastral mapping, land parcel mapping, and hydrographic surveys for various projects within the POH AOR. Completion within the project schedule validates the engagement of sufficient and competent staff and subcontractors.
(e) Knowledge of the locality of the projects

Firms will be evaluated on specific familiarity with the site conditions in Hawaii and the POH
AOR. The intent is to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of local conditions, including the physical environment, local engineering criteria, local construction methods, and construction market conditions.

SF330 Requirement: The basis of evaluation for this criterion will focus on the information provided in SF330, Part I, Section E (Resume of Key Personnel), item 19 (Relevant Projects). Information presented shall demonstrate general understanding of the local conditions listed above, based on specific work experience.

SECONDARY selection criteria, to be used as quote mark tie-breakers quote mark among technically equal firms, are listed in descending order of importance as follows:
