SYNOPSIS

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) requests comments and questions about this DRAFT Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Clean Energy Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract for Critical Priority Countries (CPCs). CPCs are currently Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Sudan, and are subject to change. At a later date, a similar draft RFP for the Clean Energy IDIQ Contract for non-CPCs, i.e., the other developing countries USAID assists, may be issued for comments and questions.

Through the Clean Energy IDIQ Contract for CPCs and the task orders that will be issued under it, USAID will fund technical assistance in CPCs to improve access to reliable and affordable clean energy, improve regulation and governance in the energy sector, demonstrate the use of innovative technologies and business models, and assist with the transition to a low carbon development trajectory.


Under the six energy sector themes of climate change, clean energy, energy poverty, energy sector governance, energy security, and energy sector reform, there will be a range of key activities such as: developing activities and strategy designs; creating enabling environments for clean energy development (including legal, regulatory and corporate governance structures and mechanisms); incorporating climate change into USAID Mission programs; increasing human resource capacities related to energy services; fostering private sector participation and investment; facilitating innovative financing approaches (such as revolving funds, bond pools, advance market commitments, credit guarantees, and structured finance); assessing the environmental implications of energy services; and improving disaster preparations, responses and recovery.


Contracts resulting from the RFP will be IDIQ with task orders funded individually post-award, either as cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) or firm-fixed-price (FFP) awards. USAID estimates awarding approximately five contracts, including approximately three unrestricted awards and approximately two reserved for small business. The RFP will not obligate USAID to award any contract or task order. There is no guarantee as to the number of IDIQ contracts that will be awarded or the number of task orders that any IDIQ holder will receive.


USAID anticipates that the maximum combined (shared) ordering ceiling of the contracts (including task orders) resulting from the RFP will be $400,000,000 over the five year ordering period. Each IDIQ contract holder will be eligible to compete for task orders until the shared ceiling for all contracts is reached. Task orders may be issued post-award, from USAID Washington, M/OAA/EGAT, or from USAID Missions overseas.


Funding is not yet available. There is no guarantee as to the amount of funds that will become available, nor is there any guarantee as to the amount of funds that any IDIQ contract or task order holder may receive.


USAID will not pay for any costs incurred in the preparation and/or submission of comments, questions, and/or proposals.


Comments and questions about this DRAFT must be submitted by email to Contract Specialist Roxane Wiser at rwiser@usaid.gov and Contracting Officer Vann Rolfson at vrolfson@usaid.gov by 8:30 A.M. (Washington, D.C. local time) on Monday, May 17, 2010. USAID will not reply to the comments and questions, but will consider them in preparing the final version of the RFP.

The final version of the RFP for the base IDIQ contract will be posted on the Government-wide Point of Entry (www.fedbizopps.gov) at a later date. The Government anticipates incorporating a Request for Task Order Proposal (RFTOP) into the final RFP (an RFTOP is not included as part of the DRAFT RFP). The Government anticipates that the task order proposal will be an evaluation factor for the base IDIQ contract.
