The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) is continuously involved in analyzing existing and prospective legislation, regulations, treaties, and other policy instruments as they relate to the energy, economic and environmental effects of air and radiation protection programs. The OAR is often required to undertake short-term analyses (one week to two months) on diverse subjects due to inquiries from Congress, the Executive Branch, industry and the public. In addition, the OAR is often required to undertake longer-term analyses requiring multi-disciplinary expertise and cross-disciplinary integration applied in the context of policy and program assessment. These longer-term analyses also serve the needs of the Agency, Congress, and other decision makers charged with evaluating national and international air and radiation related policies and programs.

To respond to these inquiries in a timely manner, the OAR requires analytical support in evaluating the energy, economic, technological, financial, social, human health, environmental, and ecological effects of a broad range of existing and potential future government policies and regulations. In addition, the OAR requires logistical support in developing tools, materials, and forums to communicate the potential effects of changes in government policy and to facilitate communication and potential resolution of issues identified by competing stakeholders.


The primary mission of the Office of Policy Analysis and Review (OPAR) of the EPA OAR is to provide policy analysis, policy and program development, program review, and communications support directly to the Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation and, at times, directly to the Administrator and Deputy Administrator of the EPA. Given these broad, high-level responsibilities, OPAR requires contractor analytical support which is multi-disciplinary yet which is conducted in a manner which facilitates the reconciliation of diverse disciplinary perspectives, methods of inquiry, and analytical interpretations.


The EPA anticipates the award of a cost-plus fixed fee, level of effort type contract with a base period of performance of twelve (12) months, and four (4) additional twelve-month option periods. The anticipated contract award date is May 2014. The total duration of the proposed contracts is sixty (60) months for a total of 84,000 labor hours consisting of a base quantity of 8,400 labor hours and 8,400 optional quantity labor hours for the base year and each option period. This effort is a follow-on to contracts EP-D-09-053 with ICF and EP-D-09-054 with IEC, both of which expire on March 31, 2014. The associated North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541620 with a size standard of $14.0M in average annual receipts over the last three years. The draft Conflict of Interest (COI) clauses can be reviewed at EPA's website at http://www.epa.gov/oam/rtp_cmd.
