THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE ONLY. This is not a solicitation or a request for proposal and no contract will be awarded from this notice. No solicitation or specifications are available at this time.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), Public Buildings Service (PBS), New England Region, Acquisition Management Division, is conducting market research to determine if any Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
(SDVOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone), Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), or 8(a) Small Business concerns have the current relevant qualifications, experience, personnel, and capability to perform the work
described herein.

The James C Cleveland Federal Building (JCC) is a 5 story (plus basement and mechanical penthouse) concrete and steel building built in 1966 with over 123,000 SF of office and support space.  The Warren B. Rudman Federal Courthouse (Rudman) was added as an annex to the JCC in 1996.  The Rudman is a 4 story (plus basement and mechanical penthouse) concrete and granite building with over 194,000 SF of federal courtrooms, court administrative support services space and other office space to support those agencies that facilitate the federal court system.  The Rudman basement is dedicated to secure inside parking.

In 2009, an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) energy saving project to upgrade the lighting system controls and lighting fixtures was completed.  The documented life of the control system and the light fixtures is on the order of 10 years.  GSA is undertaking a systematic multi-year effort to upgrade the light fixtures within the JCC / Rudman complex.  This project involves resolving the most egregious operational issues with the 2009 ARRA installed lighting control system.  The complex-wide lighting control system is to be eliminated and lighting control will revert to local control.  Subject to the availability of funding, the project optionally involves the targeted replacement of complex wide light fixtures.  A large majority of the work is to be completed within the Rudman building.  During the execution of the light fixture replacement effort, a small amount of gypsum wallboard (GWB) cutting and patching will be required.  Finally, where light fixtures are replaced on GWB surfaces, some patching and painting will be required.

The work is anticipated to be completed as possible during normal office hours and/or outside of normal office hours.  All workers will be required to undergo an HSPD-12 security clearance prior to beginning work on the project.

The anticipated period of performance of this construction contract is 9 months from the date of Notice to Proceed. Work will need to be coordinated with the occupants of the Clerk of Courts office.  With the amount of telework that is projected for the remainder of 2021, there is good chance of that the majority of the work being completed during traditional office hours.  Some after hours may be required.

All qualified Small Businesses are encouraged to respond. The Government will not pay for any information solicited. Respondents will not be notified of the results of the evaluation. One of the main purposes of this Sources Sought Notice is to assist the Contracting Officer in determining if a Set-Aside is an acceptable strategy for the procurement. The Government anticipates a contract award for these services in the summer of 2021. The appropriate NAICS Code is 236220 with a small business size standard of $39.5M dollars.
