The Government will not reimburse contractors for any cost incurred for their participation in this Sources Sought. Large and small businesses are encouraged to participate in this survey. The Government may base decisions about a future procurement on the responses to this survey.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Baltimore District (hereinafter USACE Baltimore District), seeks to determine the availability and adequacy of potential sources to support acquisition of the requirements stipulated below. Should acquisition of these requirements follow this market research effort, it will be conducted in compliance with the Brooks Act. The applicable NAICS code for this procurements is 541330 Engineering Services with a size standard of $15M.

The USACE Baltimore District is seeking sources to perform A/E Services for the design of a new facility for the BEP's manufacturing and administrative functions at a new location within the National Capital Region, similar to BEP's Western Currency Facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

The new facility will house all manufacturing and some administrative functions from the existing Main and Annex Buildings in Washington D.C., and the warehouse in Landover, MD. The building design will include: a production facility, security structures, vehicle inspection areas, staff and visitor parking, maintenance and storage sheds, fitness center, and security requirements. Estimated space requirements for the new facility are estimated at 900,000 square feet. The specific requirements for this new facility revolve around industrial engineering processes to include, but not limited to:

(1) Material movement (i.e., movement of material from storage areas to production line, movement of work-in-progress between production equipment);
(2) Evaluation of production flow and organization of manufacturing operations, and inclusion into the new facility design;
(3) Space management (i.e., balance of administrative workspace vs. production operation space (laboratory, print rooms, research and development, etc.) to allow for collaboration of management and technical experts regarding production and manufacturing issues);
(4) Waste Management (i.e., hazardous waste management (storage and disposal, to include waste associated with required operation and maintenance (O&M) of printing equipment); ventilation systems that effectively mitigate industrial exhaust);
(5) Management of Equipment loads as high as 80 tons (i.e. delivery and installation of parts, and O&M of equipment) all while meeting required ingress/egress requirements;
(6) Familiarity with noise abatement design for equipment that generates excessive noise;
(7) Evaluation of the possible employment of automated material handling systems (i.e., barcode and/or quick response (QR) codes to track and manage material) and robotic material movement to minimize delays on the production line;
(8) Promotion of health and wellness initiatives that will reduce injury and/or illness;
(9) Meeting storage requirements for facilities management, safety and environmental functions, and the police;
(10) Inclusion of required security protocols (i.e., cages and vaults) for secured areas for currency paper and some inks, research functions, quality assurance, and certain disposal processes;
(11) Improvement of process management as it relates to document management (i.e., paper reduction).
(12) Physical and electronic security systems associated with exterior perimeter and all interior locations;
(13) Inclusion of a small arms firing range;
(14) Development of all major utility infrastructure systems to provide service to the new facility;
(15) Coordination of Government Furnished Equipment within the new facility design.
