The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded a $224,793 contract to UHP Projects Inc., of Newport News, VA, to perform water jet blasting services on various vessels at the USCG shipyard in Baltimore.
The base bid involves performing waterjetting on a 210-foot medium endurance cutter. The contract includes option items for work on five more vessels and a one-time six-month extension.
The award was a “best value decision,” with weight given to technical capability, key personnel, quality control, past performance, and pricing.
Bidders were evaluated on their demonstrated understanding of the performance work statement and proposed methods for meeting the performance requirements of the contract. Bidders were required to have on-site supervisors with a minimum of three years of marine coatings removal experience and crews with at least one year of experience. SSPC-QP 1 certification was also required.
