Dam Removal Design-Build Contract
Contract was awarded to Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. in April 2019. The initial award authorizes $18.1 million in preliminary services, with a further award for project implementation work to follow once design is finalized.
Native Seed Propagation (2018 Seed)
Contracts were awarded to Benson Farms and S&S Seeds in January 2019. Contractors are responsible for propagating native seed collected locally in 2018 to provide large quantities of locally originated seed for restoration of the project area.
Vegetation Test Plot Construction
Contract was awarded to Hanford ARC in January 2019, and initial phases of work were complete in March 2019. Work involved building planting test beds in the vicinity of the reservoirs to determine ideal conditions and seed mixes for future reservoir habitat restoration. Any potential future phase of work is also likely to be awarded to Hanford ARC under the existing contract.
Native Seed Collection (2018 Seed)
Contract was awarded to Pacific Coast Seed, and Mid Klamath Watershed Council—an organization local to the Klamath River Basin—performed a significant proportion of this work. The contract was awarded in August 2018, and collection was complete in November 2018. Work involved collecting seeds from many different native plant species located within the vicinity of the reservoirs and included seed drying, cleaning, testing, classifying, and storage.
Further contracting opportunities for native seed collection services may exist under the Dam Removal Design-Build Contract. Please refer to Potential Contracting Opportunities with Dam Removal Design-Builder for details regarding how to contact the Design-Build Contractor for further information.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can the local workforce contract with KRRC?
KRRC will generally issue Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to procure this work. Each RFP will explain the key requirements of a particular activity. Interested service providers must submit a proposal describing how the key requirements will be met. KRRC will select the most qualified company or individual to perform the work. AECOM (KRRC’s technical consultant) will supervise the work, which may be contracted through AECOM or directly with KRRC.
How are contracts advertised and awarded?
- RFP Development*: KRRC will develop a request for proposals, which includes a summary of the work and procurement process, in addition to a detailed list of technical requirements and a draft contract agreement.
- Notify Local Entities & Advertise: KRRC will notify county and Tribal agencies and our jobs newsletter list prior to RFP advertisement. Then, the RFP will be advertised directly in a variety of venues including our jobs newsletter, local jobs bulletin boards, and business opportunity and job websites.
- Service Providers Submit Proposals:Service providers develop their proposals over a time period that will vary depending on the complexity of the work, usually between 2 to 4 weeks.
- RFP Evaluation: KRRC will evaluate proposals using the specific selection criteria developed for each package. Examples for RFP selection criteria may include technical approach to the work, price, percent local involvement, etc. KRRC will normally require 2-5 weeks to review proposals, but this depends on the RFP.
- Contract Negotiation & Award: After the winning proposal is selected, KRRC will negotiate the terms and contract with a service provider.
*In some instances, the RFP process will be preceded by a short RFQ process to pre-qualify service providers prior to RFP release.
