HAMPTON, GA--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Eastern Acquisitions Service Area, Southern Region, AAQ-510 ATL, College Park, Georgia is looking for a contractor to replace obsolete wall panels at the Hampton ARTCC, in Hampton, Georgia.
This requirement is a Total Small Business Set-aside with a Tiered Evaluation Order of Preference. This is a negotiated procurement that will result in a firm-fixed-price contract to a single contractor. The total estimated contract value is between $10,000 and $50,000.
Contractor will have 30 days to complete the project, after receiving a Notice to Proceed.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Size Standards is 238210, Electrical Contractors and Other Wiring Installation Contractors, and the small business size standard is $15 Million over the last years.
The FAA intends to fulfill this requirement by way of Tiered Evaluation. Tiered evaluation of offers allows the FAA the means to promote small business while providing the opportunity to continue with the procurement action in the event there is inadequate or insufficient small business participation. The FAA will evaluate each tier, and will make a determination of insufficient competition or unreasonable price before evaluating the next tier.
The FAA intends to award a contract on a competitive basis to an eligible socially and economically disadvantaged business (SEDB) that has been expressly certified by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for participation in its 8(a) program, provided that adequate competition is received and an award can be made at a fair market price.
If circumstances do not permit an award to an 8(a) concern, the FAA will evaluate offers from any eligible service-disabled veteran owned small business (SDVOSB), provided that adequate competition is received and an award can be made at a fair market price.
If circumstances do not permit an SDVOSB award, the FAA will evaluate offers from any eligible small business concern, provided that adequate competition is received and an award can be made at a fair market price.
Finally, if circumstances do not permit an award in the third tier, the FAA will evaluate offers and attempt to award a contract on the basis of full and open competition from among all responsible, responsive offers received providing award can be made at a fair market price.
Adequate competition is defined as at least two competitive offers received from qualified, responsible business concerns at the tier under evaluation.
In summary, once offers are received they will be evaluated by tier according the order of precedence previously specified. If no award can be made at the first tier, the evaluation will proceed to the next lower tier until award can be made.
Proposals are due by September 20, and must be mailed to:

Eastern Logistics Service Area
