EPA’s revamp of its Superfund program contracting strategy will create unprecedented opportunities for small businesses.
There will now be three catagories of contracts:
Design and Engineering Services (DES)
Remediation Environmental Services (RES)
Environmental Services and Operations (ESO)
There will be ten geographic categories called Contract Line Item Number’s (CLIN’s ) in each contract category, with two to six awards per CLIN; two of which are anticipated to be SBSA. More significantly, EPA has indicated it is considering setting aside the entirety of RES and ESO contracts for small business depending on responses (due November 7th) from the open sources sought/request for information (SS/RFI):
Proposals will be submitted using the new SF-330. A revised version of the SF-330 form and instructions will be posted for a second round of industry comments before the end of the year.
EPA spends about $500 million every year on Superfund contracts. For more information on RAF, click the image.If you are a small business with hazardous waste capabilities, it is worth your while to respond to the SS/RFI’s and comment on the SF-330. This is your chance.
