Project Description:
The work consists of maintenance dredging to achieve contract depth in Reaches 1 through 5 of the federal navigation channel of Redwood City Harbor. The project depth for Reaches 1 through 5 of -30-ft and 1-ft of paid overdepth contains approximately 350,000 cubic yards of dredged material to be excavated from the Redwood City Harbor Channel. The dredged material is suitable for aquatic in-bay disposal at Alcatraz (SF-11), upland beneficial use, or deep ocean disposal (SF-DODS). Bidders may submit bids for Government-furnished in-bay disposal and Contractor-furnished upland disposal site(s) and/or deep ocean disposal. All proposed upland beneficial use sites must be fully permitted. Acceptance will be based on achieving contract depth in 100 percent of the project footprint within the contract period of performance.

The estimated price range for this project is $5,000,000 - $10,000,000.

a. Qualified personnel are required with recent knowledge and experience in:

1. Interested parties must have the capability to dredge, including appropriately sized dredge plant and support equipment in order to complete all work within the contract period of performance identified in the contract solicitation. Hopper dredging is prohibited for this project. Interested parties must have the capability and equipment necessary for dredging and disposal of material at the San Francisco Deep Ocean Disposal Site (SF-DODS), which requires scows with current ABS certification for ocean disposal. Interested parties are required to submit proof of ownership, or access to, ABS-certified scows that meet EPA requirements, including current scow certification documentation from an independent third party inspector, as part of the response to this Market Research. Interested parties may submit inspection ABS certification documentation from previous contracts executed within the last 12 months. All proposed equipment must be identified as well as the current location of the dredge plant and scows as part of the response to this Market Research.

2. Contract work will be executed within the environmental work window, which begins June 1, 2017 and ends November 30, 2017. If the contract period of performance extends beyond the environmental work window, dredging and disposal operations may continue after November 30, 2017 with placement at a permitted beneficial use upland site. Interested parties may submit bid proposals for disposal of dredged material at any permitted upland sites provided the contract work can be completed within the specified period of performance.
