Professional Engineering Services Contract
- Contract Overview
MCR Federal, LLC has been awarded a GSA Federal Supply Schedule contract for Professional Engineering Services (PES), Contract No. GS-23F-0206R. The contract period is from January 01, 2005 – December 31, 2009. GSA may exercise an additional five-year option period at the end of this base period. The contract provides for task orders to be placed on a Firm Fixed Price, Fixed Price Level of Effort or Time & Materials basis using the labor categories and ceiling rates defined for this contract.
- Contract Use
This contract is available for use by all federal government agencies as a source for Professional Engineering Services for Worldwide use.
- Contract Scope
The contractor shall provide all resources including personnel, management, supplies, services, materials, equipment, facilities and transportation necessary to provide a wide range of professional engineering services as specified in each task order.
Services specified in a task order may be performed at the contractor’s facilities or the ordering agencies’ facilities. The Government will determine the Contractor’s compensation by any of several different methods (to be specified at the task order level) e.g., a firm-fixed price for services with or without incentives, labor hours or time-and materials.
Ordering Procedures for Services
When ordering services, ordering offices shall:
- Prepare a Request for Quotes:
- Performance-based statement of work that outlines, at a minimum, the work to be performed, location of work, period of performance, deliverable schedule, applicable standards, acceptance, criteria, and any special requirement (i.e., security clearances, travel, special knowledge, etc.) should be prepared.
- A request for quotes should be prepared which includes the performance-based statement of work and requests the contractors to submit either a firm-fixed price or Time and Material NTE price to provide the services outlined in the statement of work. A firm-fixed price or time and material order shall be requested. If a time and material order is requested, the ordering office should reasonably estimate the extent or duration of the work or anticipated cost with a reasonable degree of confidence. When such a determination is made, a labor hour or time-and-materials quote may be requested. The firm-fixed price shall be based on the hourly rates in the schedule contract and shall consider the mix of labor categories and level of effort required to perform the services described in the statement of work. The firm-fixed price of the order should also include any travel costs or other incidental costs related to performance or the services ordered, unless the order provides the reimbursement of travel costs at the rates provided in the Federal Travel or Joint Travel Regulations. A ceiling price must be established for labor-hour and time-and materials orders.
- The request for quotes may request the contractors, if necessary or appropriate, to submit a project plan for performing the task and information on the contractor’s experience and / or past performance performing similar tasks.
- The request for quotes shall notify the contractors what basis will be used for selecting the contractor to receive the order. The notice shall include the basis for determining whether the contractors are technically qualified and provide an explanation regarding the intended use of any experience and / or past performance information in determining technical acceptability of responses.
- Transmit the Request for Quotes to Contractors:
- Based upon an initial evaluation of catalogs and price lists, the ordering office should identify the contractors that appear to offer the best value (considering the scope of services offered, hourly rates and other factors such as contractor’s locations, as appropriate).
- The request for quotes should be provided to three (3) contractors if the proposed order is estimated to exceed the micro-purchase threshold, but not exceed the maximum order threshold. For proposed orders exceeding the maximum order threshold, the request for quotes should be provided to additional contractors that offer services that will meet the agency’s needs. Ordering offices should strive to minimize the contractor’s costs associated with responding to request for quotes for specific orders.
- Evaluate quotes and select the contractor to receive the order:
After responses have been evaluated against the factors identified in the request for quotes, the order should be placed with the schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative (considering price, special qualifications, administrative costs, etc.) to meet the Government’s needs.
- Blanket Purchase Agreements:
The establishment of Federal Supply Schedule Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) for recurring services is permitted when the procedures outlined herein are followed. All BPAs for services must define the services that may be ordered under the BPA, along with delivery or performance time frames, billing procedures, etc. The potential volume of orders under BPAs, regardless of the size of individual orders, may offer the ordering office the opportunity to secure volume discounts. When establishing BPAs, ordering offices shall inform contractors in the request for quotes (based on the agency’s requirement) if a single BPA or multiple BPAs will be established and indicate the basis that will be used for selecting the contractors to be awarded the BPAs.
SINGLE BPA: Generally, a single BPA should be established when the ordering office can define the tasks to be ordered under the BPA and establish a firm-fixed price or ceiling price for individual tasks or services to be ordered. When this occurs, authorized users may place the order directly under the established BPA when the need for service arises. The schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternatives to meet the agency’s needs should be awarded the BPA.
MULTIPLE BPAs: When the ordering office determines multiple BPAs are needed to meet its requirements, the ordering office should determine which contractors can meet any technical qualifications before establishing the BPAs. When multiple BPAs are established, the authorized users must follow the procedures in II.B above and then place the order with the Schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative to meet the agency’s needs.
Review BPAs periodically: Such reviews shall be conducted at least annually. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the BPA still represents the best value (considering price, special qualifications, etc.) and results in the lowest overall cost alternative to meet the agency’s needs.
- Small Business
The ordering office should give preference to small business concerns when two or more contractors can provide the services at the same firm-fixed price or ceiling price.
- Task Records and Documentation
The ordering office, at a minimum, should document orders by identifying the contractor the services were purchased from, the services purchased, and the amount paid. If other than a firm-fixed price order is placed, such documentation should include the basis for the determination to use a labor-hour or time-and-materials order. For agency requirements in excess of the micro-purchase threshold, the order file should document the evaluation of Schedule contractor’s quotes that formed the basis for the selection of the contractor that received the order and the rationale for any trade-offs made in making the selection.
- Special Provisions for Task Orders
Agencies may incorporate provisions in their task order that are essential to their requirements (e.g. security clearances, special handling, key personnel, etc.). These provisions when required will be included in individual task orders. Any cost necessary for the contractor to comply with the provision(s) will be included in the task order proposal, unless otherwise prohibited by law. Contractors are strongly encouraged to price items in the contract to the maximum extent practicable.
