SECTION A -- INTRODUCTION


This is a SOURCES SOUGHT SYNOPSIS; it is not a solicitation announcement; thus, this synopsis neither solicits for proposals nor bids and no contract will be awarded based on this synopsis; however, this synopsis is a market research tool, which will enable the Maritime Administration (MARAD) to gain knowledge of qualified Small Businesses and Large Businesses that are classified under Code 488390 of the North American Industry Classification Code (NAICS), which can provide layberthing services to MARAD' Ready Reserve Force FSS-class vessels, ANTARES and DENEBOLA, in the East Coast of the United States. The Small Business Size Standard in dollars is $38.5 Million. Please, be informed that no reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with providing information in response to this synopsis or any follow up information requests.



Responses to this Sources Sought Synopsis will be used by MARAD to decide whether or not to set the solicitation for the layberthing of ANTARES and DENEBOLA aside for small businesses, to understand the current layberthing price/per-diem rate, and to understand the number of interested and capable potential offerors. MARAD intends to award the related layberthing contract in 2018 fiscal year.



Section B -- DESCRIPTION


The Maritime Administration is seeking a long term layberthing site to safely moor two MARAD' Ready Reserve Force FSS-class vessels, ANTARES and DENEBOLA . The geographic area of consideration is the East Coast of the United States and all inland navigable waterways that can safely accommodate the transit and maneuvering of the subject vessels within (an approximate) 150-mile-transit from the Seabuoy between Maine, as the Northern Boundary and Cape Canaveral, Florida, as the southern boundary. Water depth shall be (after dredging, if necessary) a minimum of 32 feet from the berth to the sea buoy. Navigation channel should permit twenty-four hours per day unrestricted transit to open ocean. Provide height limitations for all bridges/overhead structures. A HWMP is not required for this survey. The requirement to deploy the vessel ramp has not been determined but assume that if the facility can accommodate the ramp, the Government will use the pier for that purpose up to the capacity of the facility.



The basic characteristics of the vessels are as follows:


LENGTH OVERALL: 946'-1"


LENGTH BETWEEN PERPENDICULARS: 880'-06"


BEAM: 105'-06"


ESTIMATED DRAFT AT BERTH: 25'-09" FWD 28'-00" AFT

The anticipated contract will require the contractor to provide the following services and utilities to ANTARES and DENEBOLA : layberthing, electricity, water, sewage connection, telephone, trash recycling, high speed internet.
