  1. Understood - This information is in the local news paper and the weapons complex monitor. The redacted details about the protest are not public and probably wont be for quite some time. I wouldnt presume to put something out there which was not public knowledge.
  2. GAO sustained these protests on the basis that NNSA failed to follow the publicly-stated solicitation criteria, which provided that the agency would evaluate the feasibility and size of each offerors proposed cost savings resulting from the consolidation of the management and operation of these sites. Specifically, GAO concluded that NNSA failed to meaningfully assess the majority of each offerors proposed cost savings, and based its source selection decision on the unsupported assumption that all cost savings proposed by every offeror would be achieved. The protesters raised various other pro

  4. I'm looking for help in understanding protocol under the following protest scenaio. Thank's in advance for you reply ..... ____________________________________________________________________________ A Government agency issues a solicitation for, and subsequently makes an award to operate a federal facility. The RFP contained many evaluation factors including cost savings each bidder proposes to save operating the facility. The award is protested by multiple bidders citing 15-20 different issues. One of the issues is skepticism about the amount of savings proposed by the successful bidder. A
  5. Vern, Thank you for the fast responce. Is the contract still "open", if the warranty period has not yet expired?
  6. I believe that the warranty is condition of the contract and until it expires the contract is not completed? My situation is this: M&O Contractor (Company) hires a contractor to furnish and install a piece of equipment. Equipment is installed, tested and accepted by Company. Equipment has a one year warranty that starts after acceptance. Stated contract period of performance does not include the one year warranty period. Before the warranty period expires, a problem arises with the equipment that may or may not be the fault the contractor (manufacturing defect). The problem may have been
  7. Vern - thank you for the lightning quick and enlightening reply. Much appreciated.
  8. I thought it was written in the FAR, that it was prohibited and even unlawful, to draft a scope of work / performance specification documents, in a manner that the would limit or restrict competition. Example: Drafting a scope of work and or performance specifications exceeding actual needs, and is such a way that to as to essentially ensure that a favored contractor would be successful. or Drafing the requirements for a Widget so closely to a particular manufacturers Widget that no other manufacturer's widget could meet the requirement. I could not find words to that effect in the FAR. Can
  9. My fault for not being clear. We would not ask the three to do the geotech. In an attempt to lower the contractors potential risk and potentially our costs, we would be asking 1 or 3 firms, for a new lump sum GM proposal for for the turnkey job. We are not separating out the geotech. The risk elimination part is the ability of the sucessful contractor to negortiate a price for the final design and construction, after that same sucessful contractor had completed the geotech and 30% design. The negotiated price could not exceed their lump sum GM turnkey price.
  10. Gentlemen, I appreciate your jumping in on this and I apologize fort not getting back to the Board quicker. I work for a prime contractor and we want to award a fixed lump sum design build subcontract. The design part will require them to do geo tech investigation to be able to do the design. Right now, all three contractors are guessing about what?s under the hill and what kind of conditions they will encounter, and what it will really cost to do the job. Earthwork was roughly a third ? half of the total proposal totals. My thoughts? All three contractors are guessing about subsurface condi
  11. I work for a "prime? contractor with an approved purchasing system working for a government entity. I am looking for a sanity check please. ************** A RFP was issued for a lump sum turnkey design / build road construction project. The road is on the side of a hill. To design the road the contractor will have to obtain geotechnical data upon which to base its design. No geotechnical data was provided with the RFP. Exact location to place the road is contractor?s choice. Bids come in much higher than the estimate. Two bids are close together but are a factor higher that the other bid
