A construction camp will be available for the contractor's use during this winter construction.

Construction will also be occurring during this same time period at the Old Faithful Inn. Staging area is limited in this high visitor use area. Separate contractors will be installing exhibits and bookstore furnishings in the new Old Faithful Visitor Education facility during the final stages of this project. Coordination with these contractors will be required. Type of Procurement: A negotiated firm-fixed price contract will be awarded requiring submission of both a technical and price proposal. The government will consider an offeror's technical capability in comparison to its price. The estimate for this work is between $15,000,000 and $20,000,000. A fixed completion date for the project will be set in September 2008. Proposal receipt date is approximately May 26, 2006; actual date will be established at the time proposal documents are available. All responsible sources may submit an offer that will be considered. It is the policy of the Government to provide maximum practicable opportunities in its acquisitions to small business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns. Such concerns must also have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate as subcontractors in the contracts awarded by any executive agency, consistent with efficient contract performance. All offerors, (large or small) are strongly encouraged to contact their local Small Business Administration office, to post their need for qualified subcontractors on SUB-Net accessed at http://web.sba.gov/subnet/, and to utilize the Central Contractor Registration's (CCR) Dynamic Small Business Search for potential subcontractors within these various socio-economic categories. In order to be considered for award, all large businesses will be required to submit an acceptable Small, HUBZone Small, Small Disadvantaged, Women-Owned, and Veteran-Owned Small Business Subcontracting Plan with their proposal.

Responses from offerors will be accepted at the address listed in the solicitation in hard copy with the manual signature of the authorized company official. Facsimile offers shall NOT be accepted. The Government reserves the right to cancel this solicitation. Issuance of solicitation and possibility of award is dependant upon availability of funds. [/font]
