USCG Air Station Miami continues recovering from Hurricane Irma

Small Business Contractor Sought to Survey Damages

Miami, Florida, Feb. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The US Coast Guard in Miami has been busy cleaning up damage from Hurricane Irma, removing many damaged boats from the waters. Five months later, they are continuing to take care of their own damages. Their Miami Air Station issued a solicitation today for environmental consulting contractors to perform a study for repairs on their aviation fuel farm. They are only accepting offers from small businesses until February 15, 2018.

The contractor will furnish all labor, equipment, tools and supervision for this work. The period of performance is fifty days and is anticipated to begin about mid-March. For more information, firms may submit a Request for Information to contracting officer Laura Allen at by February 6, 2018.

All contractors must be registered in the System for Award Management and qualify as a small business to be considered for the contract. A business is considered small in this industry if their three-year average annual gross totals $15 million or less. Proper registration is important when submitting a technically acceptable bid, and for the best chance of winning the contract, businesses may use third-party registration firms to get set up.

US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is the world’s largest third-party government registration firm. They not only register companies on their behalf in the government's mandatory System for Award Management, but also have pioneered the Advanced Procurement Portal (APP). APP provides active and historical federal business opportunity information and a list of active federal buyers and vendors. The synthesis of this data will simplify the federal procurement process for businesses who may then dedicate their complete effort toward their performance on the contract instead of the acquisition of it.  APP also includes a built-in Learning Center designed by industry professionals so that newcomers to the federal sector can efficiently locate opportunities and effectively bid on them.
