UPDATE:� Due date has been extended until 10/9/2020 at 4:30 PM CT.�� The purpose of this announcement is to request updated and new Architect-Engineer (AE) qualification information for the USDA Forest Service Eastern Region, AE Short Selection List.� WHAT IS THE SHORT SELECTION LIST USED FOR? The Forest Service utilizes the Short Selection List to award AE contracts, valued at less than the simplified acquisition threshold, in all states included within the Forest Service Eastern Region including the states of, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Although the primary user of the list will be the Forest Service, any USDA office located in the Forest Service Eastern Region boundaries may use the list.� The shortlist will contain all of the unexpired submissions from previous announcements and all qualified, interested AE�firms that respond to this announcement.� Examples of the types of work that may be awarded using the short selection list include: bridge and large culvert design, road and trail bridge inspections, culvert inspections, low volume road design, design of small warehouses and offices, historic preservation, rehabs to improve energy efficiency and safety concerns, energy audits and studies, design of repairs to small dams and impoundments, design of photovoltaic and other renewable energy systems, LEED consulting, design of HVAC systems, design of electrical systems and lighting, water and waste water system design, performance of sanitary inspections for water systems, safety inspections for bridges and dams, construction inspection, drafting services, surveying (construction and property), geotechnical investigation, and environmental (RCRA, CECRLA, CWA, etc.) investigations, reviews, inventories, audits and coordination of RCRA and other waste disposal. This list is not all-inclusive. WHAT IS THE SHORT SELECTION PROCESS? The Short Selection Process utilizes the procedures set forth in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 36.602-5.��For AE projects with an estimated total fee less than the simplified acquisition threshold (currently $250,000; see FAR Part 2.101), agencies may use current data files of eligible AE firms to perform technical evaluations and choose the best qualified firm for award. AE data files will be maintained by State and NAICS code. The AEs professional qualifications (FAR 36.602-1(a)(1)) and the firms geographic proximity and knowledge of the local area (FAR 36.602-1(a)(5)) as identified on the AEs SF330 and supplemental information, will be used for the first preliminary screening of firms when a large list of qualified firms exist. Once the most qualified firms are chosen from the AE short list, discussions will be held with those firms. Additional information may be requested during discussions if necessary to facilitate the final ranking of firms (ie: past performance references, specialized experience, capacity, etc). Upon conclusion of discussions, the top three firms will be ranked and a price proposal will be requested from the highest ranked firm. If a fair and reasonable price cannot be negotiated with the highest ranked firm, a request for price proposal will be sent to the second ranked firm, and so on until an award can be made at a fair and reasonable price.� All acquisitions utilizing the short selection list shall be set-aside for small business concerns unless requirements cannot be met by a small business and the Contracting Officer obtains a proper waiver.
