Navy Issues $5B Multiple Award Contract RFP


The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Atlantic, located in Norfolk, Virginia, has issued a Request for Proposals for an eight-year, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Global Contingency Construction Multiple Award Contract.

The contract is worth up to $5 billion in foreign and domestic construction projects.

About the Projects

The contract will primarily provide work including supervision, equipment, materials, labor, travel and engineering services in support of natural disaster response, humanitarian efforts, conflict, emergent mission critical requirements or similar projects.

There could also be incidental construction efforts required for military exercises. The work is expected to primarily be outside the United States.

The MAC reportedly includes a wide range of projects including but not limited to:

  • Dredging;
  • Airfield facilities construction;
  • Administrative and educational facilities;
  • Water and sewage treatment plants; 
  • Enemy containment and processing facilities; 
  • Building envelope repairs; 
  • Fencing;
  • Garbage disposal and recycling facilities; 
  • Warehouse facilities and transportation depots for construction materials; 
  • Rail facilities; 
  • Bridges and causeways; 
  • Medical clinics and field hospitals; 
  • Road construction; and  
  • Pier and waterfront construction.

Approximately four contracts will be awarded with a base year and seven one-year options with the combined value of $5 billion. The minimum guarantee for each contract is $25,000 over the life of the contract. Task orders will be either cost-plus–award-fee or firm-fixed-price orders. There will be no yearly or per contractor limit on task order awards.

According to Bloomberg, these contracts would replace incumbent contracts that were awarded in March 2019 to six companies with a combined ceiling value of about $1 billion. Although the six companies received the minimum $25,000 award, only four (Illuminate Buyer LLC, Environmental Chemical Corp., Tutor Perini Corp. and Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.) have received more than that initial amount.

Those contracts run through March 2024 so additional obligations will continue being disbursed.

“The Navy’s decision to issue recompete details so early in advance of the March 2024 incumbent expiration date is unclear,” Bloomberg reported. “Since the contract is designed for contingencies, which are highly unpredictable, it is probable that the Navy wants to have the flexibility to deal with large, unanticipated requirements over the next eight years and the existing contracts, with only about $500 million left until they reach their ceiling, might not be sufficient.”

Proposals are due Oct. 5.
