Government Considering Hoover Dam $1 Million to $5 Million Maintenance Project

Capable businesses sought for Gate Stem Replacement

/EIN News/ -- Boulder City, Nevada, Jan. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Department of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation issued a notice that they are interested in replacing a cylinder gate stem in one intake tower at the Hoover Dam. The agency anticipates that the work will last about ten months and cost between $1 million and $5 million. Although, they are not prepared to award a contract at this time, they have a deadline of January 23, 2018 for capable businesses to declare their interest.

The Hoover Dam has four intake towers that control two cylinder gates each. The 360+ ft tall intake towers draw in the water from Lake Mead and the cylinder gates control the opening and closing of these towers. The gate stems undergo visual inspections on a rotating, yearly, basis however a recent, in‐depth inspection has not been conducted to determine the structural integrity of the components that make up the cylinder gates and gate stems.

To submit a declaration of interest in this solicitation businesses should be able to provide specific information to the agency. They would like to know the lead time to manufacture a new stem gate and see a presentation of the firm’s experience in similar projects (providing tubing diameters at least 200 ft in total assembly length. The actual length for this project would be greater than 300 ft.) They would also like to see a plan to verify the straightness of the completed gate stem. In addition to answering these questions, businesses should be properly registered in the government’s database of contractors.

To become registered as a government contractor, businesses must complete the System for Award Management (SAM) registration. Proper North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code designation on the registration must match the NAICS code on the solicitation. Specific information, such as points of contact, DUNS number and any small-business classification if applicable must also be filled in on the SAM registration.

US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR), the world’s largest third-party government registration firm, assists companies who would like to submit bids to the government. USFCR’s expert case managers register companies on their behalf in SAM. This is a valuable tool for businesses who are capable of performing, but lack the resources for quick and accurate registration. USFCR keeps SAM registration compliant throughout the year and provides contract support so that a strong capability statement can be written and posed to a government-formatted website. Since this phase of the Hoover Dam solicitation is all about capability statements, USFCR can help businesses strongly declare interest in the work.
