Description

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to negotiate on a sole source basis, under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 with ICF Incorporated, L.L.C, to provide support services to the EPA, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) under contract titled � NATA and Risk Assessment Activities within the Integrated Air Program, EP-W-12-010 for an additional 7,700 level of effort labor hours to be utilized to extend the contract which expires March 28, 2020 by six (6) months, until September 28,2020. The EPA Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards requires the contractor to provide support for risk assessment activities associated with the first component of EPA�s air toxics program. Within the context of this component, EPA evaluates the effects of hazardous and potentially hazardous air pollutants and develops appropriate regulatory strategies. In this role, EPA: (1) identifies, screens, and characterizes air pollutants to determine which should be evaluated further as candidates for being listed as hazardous; (2) reviews and evaluates health and/or ecological assessment documents on hazardous air pollutants; (3) performs risk assessments using EPA methods and models, or other methods and/or models, if more appropriate, to help guide reasoned decision-making; (4) identifies and evaluates alternative control options; (5) gathers information on production, use, emissions, control technology, control cost, and regulatory status to establish appropriate regulatory development priorities; (6) assesses the effectiveness of EPA and State/local programs in controlling hazardous and criteria pollutants; and (7) coordinates with other EPA offices and Federal and State/local programs to develop appropriate single or multimedia (e.g., air, water, solid waste, and/or other media) regulations. Another purpose of this contract is to provide support for the second, third, and fourth components of EPA�s air toxics program. In this role, EPA develops assessment tools, conduct assessments, communicate the results of assessments, and educate the public. In addition, the EPA examines the air pollution problem in a more integrated fashion (i.e., considering the cumulative effects of air toxics and criteria pollutants across media rather than conducting separate assessments). EPA believes that ICF Incorporated L.LC, with its experience and support provided in many ongoing work assignments possesses the institutional knowledge, processes and tools that are not readily transferable to a new contractor. All the aforementioned components are essential in the meeting of EPA�s critical deadlines. THIS NOTICE IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS. However, any firm believing itself capable of meeting the aforementioned requirement must submit technical documentation to establish its assertion. This documentation must be submitted to Natalia Fisher-Jackson(fisher-jackson.natalia@epa.gov) within 15 days of the electronic posting of this notice. Telephone requests will not be honored. A determination not to compete the proposed requirement based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the EPA. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement or to proceed on a sole source basis. The anticipated award date for this modification to the existing contract is March 24.2020.
