COMBINED SYNOPSIS/SOLICITATION

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested, and a written solicitation document will not be issued.

This solicitation (36C25519Q0520) is a request for quotations (RFQ). The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2019-01. All responsible sources may submit a proposal.

The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 238220, with a small business size standard of $15.0 million. Offerors must be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) at https://www.sam.gov/SAM/ to be considered for an award.

FAR Clauses 52.212-1 through 52.212-5 apply to this procurement. For the exact text and wording of these clauses and provisions, please see www.acquisition.gov. The Government contemplates an award of a Firm Fixed Priced Contract resulting from this solicitation.

Description of Project: This procurement is for: Services, Non-Personal. Purchase and replacement of One (1) 6- inch Post Indicator Valve, outside Building 1, at the St. Louis VA Healthcare System, John Cochran Medical Center, 915 N. Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63106. Currently, the Post Indicator Valve is frozen in an open position and the valve will not close. This project is for services to remove the existing PIV with a new PIV and all associated tasks, parts, equipment, materials and documentation per the requirements of the Performance Work Statement and other places in this document and the resulting contract.

The intent of this contract is to purchase and replace One (1) 6-inch Post Indicator Valve which is located outside of Building 1 at the St. Louis VA Healthcare System, John Cochran Medical Center, 915 N. Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63106. The Post Indicator Valve and accessories shall be designed and installed per NFPA and VA guidelines to meet the original design or as otherwise stated in the Performance Work Statement (PWS).

Services Requested: The Contractor(s) shall provide all labor, supervision, tools, transportation, equipment and materials necessary to remove and replace One (1) 6-inch Post Indicator Valve located outside of Building 1 at the John Cochran Medical Center.

The Contractor will be required to dig approximately five to six feet to reach the connection point installation of the pipe, and to refill the dig site after all testing of the Post Indicator Valve.

Therefore, issuance by the Government of an order in response to a supplier s quotation does not establish a contract.
