Network Contracting Office 1 (NCO 1), supporting VA New England Healthcare System (VISN 1), is conducting market research to facilitate a determination of acquisition strategy. The determination of acquisition strategy for this procurement will be based on this market research and information available to the Government from other sources. The purpose of this market research is to identify verified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOSB) and Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB), as well as other socio-economic business firms, which have sufficient staff, flexibility, capability, and interest to perform Engineering Services for the following project. To be eligible to respond as an SDVOB or VOSB, your firm must be verified in VetCert with the Small Business Administration (https://veterans.certify.sba.gov/#home) under NAICS code 541330 at the due date for response to this notice and remain verified throughout the acquisition process. Firms must also be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM). Visit www.sam.gov.
Failure to respond to this notice will not impact consideration of architect and engineer firms (or joint ventures) which otherwise meet set-aside requirements and submit responses to the follow-up public announcement. Once the appropriate set-aside is determined, a separate public announcement requesting qualification statements (SF330s) will be publicized on Contract Opportunities in accordance with 40 U.S. Code Â§ 1101 and FAR 36.601.

State your firm name (as it appears in SAM.gov), firm office location where these services will be performed from, UEI number, and socio-economic status (i.e., verified SDVOSB or VOSB, WOSB, SB, Large Business).

Provide a brief narrative on the firm s experience providing services similar to those described in the attached Statement of Work. Please provide contract descriptions, contract dollar amounts, and telephone numbers for points of contact). Descriptions should also detail experience with hybrid operating room design.
Although this Sources Sought Notice applies to all socioeconomic categories, SDVOSB and VOSB firms will need to provide evidence of ability to meet at least 50% of the cost of personnel for performance will be spent for employees of your concern or employees of other eligible SDVOSB or VOSB concerns (Reference VAAR 852.219-10 for SDVOSB set-aside requirements or 852.219-11 for VOSB set-aside requirements). If you state you will use other eligible firms, provide their names and UEI numbers. What would be the expected make-up of the firm s team in terms of socio-economic categories and estimated percentage of work to be completed by your firm and each subcontractor?
If the procurement is set-aside for any category of small business, generally fifty percent of more of the work would need to be performed by the contractor or a similarly situated subcontractor in terms of percentage of cost. For instance, if set-aside for service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB), 50% or more of the contract would need to be performed by verified SDVOSBs no other small business categories would count towards the percentage. If set-aside for small business, 50% of the contract would be required to be performed by small businesses which would include performance by a verified SDVOSB because they are also a small business. If the procurement is not set-aside and reaches certain dollar thresholds, the Government would negotiate an acceptable subcontracting plan to utilize small business concerns.
A brief statement on capability of performing the work in conjunction with ongoing projects.
Proof of professional liability insurance required to cover the amount of the expected construction contract cost.
