PUBLIC NOTICE - 201
The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is initiating procurement procedures to obtain hydrogeological and engineering services for performance of soil and groundwater quality assessments, development of corrective action plans, preparation of risk-based corrective action evaluations, and implementation of corrective action plans at sites where a petroleum release has occurred from an underground storage tank system and there is no viable tank owner. This work is being funded through the Federal Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Trust Fund and is subject to the procurement regulations contained in 40 CFR Part 31. Utilization of Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Women Business Enterprises (WBE) for prime contracts and subcontracts is a contract condition where those services can be obtained. Other grant conditions will apply and will be addressed in the actual contract. Three or more firms will be selected through this process, with which ADEM will establish contracts. The contract period will be two years from the date of contract execution and subject to renewal.
Hydrogeological or engineering firms interested in providing these services can obtain the “Instructions for Preparation and Submittal of Technical Proposal for Federal LUST Trust Fund Work” from the Department’s web site at www.adem.alabama.gov. The instructions are located in the Program, Waste/Remediation/UST, UST Corrective Action section of the ADEM webpage.
The deadline for the submittal of technical proposals to ADEM by email at firstname.lastname@example.org is 5:00 p.m., October 22, 2021. Proposals received after this deadline will not be reviewed, and incomplete applications will not be reviewed. ADEM will acknowledge receipt of all submittals in writing.
All proposals received on or before the deadline will be evaluated on a competitive basis in accordance with the evaluation criteria listed below.
Each applicant shall produce evidence in their application that they have an experienced full-time Alabama Licensed Professional Geologist and an experienced full-time Alabama Registered Professional Engineer on staff. Each applicant shall also produce evidence in their application that they are Licensed General Contractors by the Alabama Licensing Board for General Contractors, that they are currently registered and in good standing to perform work in Alabama, and, if a foreign corporation, have registered with the Secretary of State as a foreign corporation. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure all legal requirements have been met. Possession of a Professional Geologist license, Registered Professional Engineer license or a General Contractor license does not guarantee that the applicant will be selected for contracting.
ADEM reserves the right to award a contract based on initial offers alone, negotiate further with any or all firms, or reject any and all proposals. This notice shall in no way be considered an offer or in any way be construed to obligate the Alabama Department of Environmental Management or the State of Alabama.
The technical proposal scores from this procurement effort will be used in future contracting efforts under the Federal Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund for up to a period of four years and subject to renewal.
Notice is hereby given this 25th day of August, 2021, by authorization of the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.
