The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has recently awarded Multiple Award Construction Contract Two (MACC-II) contracts to 20 small businesses and four large firms across the United States, six of which are from Florida.
Construction contracts included in the regionalized Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract vehicle are awarded in six categories: woman-owned small business, historically underutilized business zone, service-disabled veteran-owned small business, 8(A) Business Development Program, small business, and full and open unrestricted awards.
The contracts, which are anticipated to cost not more than $3 billion over an eight-year ordering period, are part of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s efforts to help small, disadvantaged firms to compete in the construction market.
Florida firms that have been awarded contracts are ELCI Construction Group Inc. from North Miami in women-owned small business awards; ESA South Inc. from Cantonment, Advon Corporation from Tallahassee and Firewatch Contracting of FL LLC from Tampa in service-disabled veteran-owned awards; and Silver Mountain Construction from Jacksonville and CCI Energy and Construction Services from Shalimar in 8(A) awards.
Project work includes, but not is not limited to, alteration, modification, maintenance, repair, demolition, design-built and new construction of facilities at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, Johnson Space Center in Texas, White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico, Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, and Michoud Assembly Facilty in Louisiana. With approval of the Stennis procurement officer, other NASA centers may also use MACC-II.
NASA says firms awarded with contracts have been carefully evaluated with the following factors put into consideration: technical acceptability, past performance and price.
