FEMA seeking charter bus company for personnel transport in San Juan
SAN JUAN – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is asking a small business in Puerto Rico to provide transportation services between the Convention Center in San Juan and a Joint Field Office. The companies that use Fedbid.com to bid on this contract should be prepared to transport up to 1,500 people daily. Only one contract will be awarded to a small business. The deadline to submit a bid is Jan. 18, 2018.
The solicitation notes that most of the movement will be in the morning, between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., U.S. Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR), a large third-party government registration firm, said in a release Monday.
“The company will be required to provide transportation throughout the afternoon for stragglers. The work could start in as little as three days from the awarding of the contract and will last for three months,” the release adds.
Those interested “should take into consideration that there is also the possibility for extra trips to be needed to different areas throughout Puerto Rico. The price for this line on the contract has a quantity of 24 one-way tips,” the release says.
The contract will be awarded to the company that provides the “lowest price technically acceptable.” The minimum bid decrement is set at $1,000.
There are also nonpricing factors to be considered by any company submitting an offer. These should total no more than five pages and be attached to the pricing offer. They must include a “statement of capability, documentation of vehicles with capacity listed, past performance history on similar federal or commercial contracts and three references. Offerors must also be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM).”
