Amistad and Falcon Hydroelectric Power Plants NEWC and Texas Reliability Entity Compliance Services Contract

The USIBWC, Amistad and Falcon Hydroelectric Power Plants are located at 670 Texas Spur 349, Del Rio, TX 78840 and FM2098, 1 Reservoir Rd. Falcon Heights, TX. 78545, respectively. Both Power Plants have a requirement under this Statement of Work (SOW) for a qualified Contractor with extensive experience (5 years or more) in North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards identified in Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC).

The Contractor shall assist USIBWC to resolve current possible violations and comply with federal and regional reliability standards for two hydroelectric plants: Falcon and Amistad Dams. These two hydroelectric plants are located in the state of Texas and monitored by Texas Reliability Entity, Inc. (Texas RE). Texas RE is the regional entity served by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) through a Delegation Agreement with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), approved by the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC). Texas RE is authorized to develop, monitor, assess, enforce compliance with NERC Reliability Standards, develop regional standards, assess and periodically report on the reliability and adequacy of the bulk power system (BPS). Texas RE complies with the NERC Reliability Standards through various compliance monitoring tools. One of these compliance monitoring tools is an annual audit in which USIBWC experienced in 2016. During the audit, Texas RE documented various possible noncompliance standards listed as possible violations. USIBWC is currently working to resolve these possible noncompliance standards, using a mitigation process detailed in a milestone plan with activities to resolve each specific possible violations.

The Contractor will assist USIBWC to develop, implement policies, processes, and procedures to prevent recurrence. This will include training employees as required by the mitigation plan. The Contractor will provide all labor, software recommendations, material, equipment, supervision, and management to comply with the Statement of Work (SOW). To access both Hydroelectric Power Plants, vendors need to cross through the United States Port of Entry and must comply with proper documentation (passports or other) as required by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

Solicitation, SOW and attachments are expected to be posted on or about December 15, 2017 (this is a target date which may slip or change; if the solicitation is not posted on Federal Business Opportunities by August 2, 2017 that is because the solicitation is not available for posting).
