Procurement Outreach Program

Everyone knows the construction industry in Nevada has declined significantly in recent years. But Nevada small construction businesses may have some opportunities with the Nevada National Guard over the next five years. In July, the Nevada National Guard will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitation for a broad range of maintenance, repair and construction services

The award for this RFP will be a Multiple Award Task Order Contract or MATOC for the Guard.  Most importantly for Nevada businesses, this opportunity is being “set aside” by the Guard for small businesses only.  Construction services are the main focus of this RFP, but there is also an optional “Design / Build” portion with architectural and engineering requirements.

As the term “multiple award” implies, the Guard intends to award a minimum of five contracts, each with a potential five-year term.  The maximum aggregate contract to any one business will be $20 million with the largest individual task order no more than $5 million.  Contract awards will be made based on “Best Value” or best overall value to the government (not just the low bid).   For this MATOC, the Guard will consider the proposer’s past performance and technical response, when combined, as significantly more important than price.

Even though this MATOC will be awarded by Nevada Army and Air National Guard contracting officers, other federal agencies, like the Bureau of Land Management, may use these construction services contracts.  To start with, the Guard plans to issue Task Orders for projects in northern Nevada and later include southern Nevada projects, so work could take place anywhere in the state.

Remember, the potential term of these contract awards is five years and this certainly sounds like a great opportunity for Nevada businesses to participate in government contracting right here in Nevada.  If you are interested in the upcoming MATOC or expanding your business into government markets, contact the Procurement Outreach Program (POP) at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) , 702-486-2716 or 775-687-9905.  POP will be happy to provide you with the Nevada National Guard preliminary handout materials and help your business through this RFP process!
