The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is initiating procurement procedures to obtain environmental services for performance of soil and groundwater quality assessments, development of cleanup plans, implementation of cleanup plans, and outreach activities associated with brownfield sites.  This work is being funded through the Brownfield Redevelopment Bipartisan Infrastructure Law 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 applicants will be selected through this process, with which ADEM will establish contracts.  The contract period will be three years from the date of contract execution and subject to renewal. 

Environmental firms interested in providing these services can obtain the “Instructions for Preparation and Submittal of Technical Proposal for The Brownfield Redevelopment and Voluntary Cleanup Program” from the Department’s web site at  The instructions are located in the ADEM Programs, Waste/Remediation/Underground Storage Tanks, Brownfields/VCP & Inventory of the ADEM webpage.

The deadline for the submittal of technical proposals to ADEM by email at is 5:00 p.m., February 17, 2023. 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.

  1. Background and experience of personnel who will perform the work
  2. Knowledge of technical considerations necessary to perform brownfield assessments and remediation
  3. Project organization and management                                                              
  4. Past performance of brownfield related services
  5. Acceptable draft Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP)   

Each applicant shall produce evidence in their application that they have an experienced full-time Alabama Licensed Professional Geologist or 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 Brownfield Redevelopment Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Fund for up to a period of five years and subject to renewal.

Notice is hereby given this 11th day of January, 2023, by authorization of the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.
