The purpose of the Draft Request for Proposal (RFP) W912DW24R0004 is to seek industry input regarding the contents of the draft documents that are being provided to help the Government improve upon and prepare eventual final RFP documents for the Howard A. Hanson Dam Fish Passage Facility.
The purpose of the Virtual Industry Day is to provide an update to industry on the status of the Howard A. Hanson Dam Fish Passage Facility design efforts and to provide information on the intended/contemplated delivery method the Government is pursuing. The government is pursuing an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) via Integrated Design and Construction (IDaC) delivery method for the construction of the new Howard A. Hanson Dam Fish Passage Facility. ECI-IDaC is a variation of the ECI-FPIS (Fixed-Price Incentive Successive Targets) delivery method in accordance with FAR Part 16.403-2 whereby the Government and the selected Contractor agree to terms on a Firm Fixed Price base for preconstruction services that will work in tandem with the Government design phase. Once design is complete the Government and the Contractor would then agree on a Firm Fixed Price option for construction. The contract would operate in an incentive mode during the design and preconstruction phase as it pertains to the eventual construction option pricing.
