Bureau of Reclamation Window Covering/Tinting/Shading/Filtering Sources Sought Notification This Sources Sought/Request for Information (RFI) is being issued in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation Part 10, Market Research. It is for information, planning and market research purposes only and shall not be construed as either a solicitation or obligation on the part of the Bureau of Reclamation. The purpose of this RFI is to help the BORs Upper Colorado Region understand the industry best practices and technical solutions capable of providing the full range of requirements described in this RFI. BOR will use this market research information to assess the market's capability to successfully meet the BORs window covering/tinting/filtering requirements.


The goal of this RFI is to obtain ideas and potential solutions to provide for window covering/tinting/shading/filtering/etc options for the upper level window in the Upper Colorado Region of the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) Regional Office. The Regional Office is located at 125 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. BOR occupies multiple sections of the building, with windows on all sides of the building. Due to the layout of the building, the office furniture and the building design, many of the work areas are subject to varying degrees of glare and light penetration. The building currently has window coverings/shades for the lower windows; however, the upper windows are not covered/shaded. As a result glare and light penetration into the workspaces can be disruptive to the occupants. Therefore, BOR is seeking potential solutions to provide for window coverings/tinting/shading/filtering/etc that will decrease the light penetration and glare coming through the upper level windows while maintaining an ascetically pleasing appearance.

Sources Sought Another purpose of this Sources Sought Notice/RFI is to determine the availability and capability of qualified small businesses (including Small Business Administration Certified 8(a) companies; firms in Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone); Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned small businesses; and Women-Owned small businesses).

BOR welcomes responses from all interested parties.
