2019

Invasive Exotic Vegetation (IEV) Eradication — Start Q2 2019
Prospective PDB Contractors will propose a contractor to perform IEV eradication using several methods, including hand pulling, tilling/disking, covering with black plastic, mowing/cutting, grazing, and — as a last resort and upon approval — application of herbicides, either by brushing (stumps and cut stems), wicking, and/or spraying. All methods of invasive species removal will be closely evaluated for both their beneficial and detrimental effects on the surrounding environment.

Status: Work in 2019. Refer to Design-Build Contractor RFQ/RFP.

Native Seed Collection 2019
The PDB Contractor will seek service providers to collect seeds of over 50 different plant species within the Project area watershed. Collected seed will be dried, cleaned, tested, and stored by the vendor, for later propagation in the Project area. Propagation of native seed will be done by other contractors under a separate contract described below. This is separate from the 2018 seed collection contract previously awarded by KRRC. Work will commence in 2019 and subsequent task orders for future years may be warranted based on Project needs and vendor performance. Since not every proposed native plant produces seed every year, long-term seed collection will guarantee good plant diversity in the project area.

Status: Work included in 2019. Refer to Design-Build Contractor RFQ/RFP.

Previous Opportunities

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?
        In summer and fall 2018, Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) will seek proposals for several field activities to be performed in 2018-2019. Local companies, Tribal Nations, and other qualified service providers are encouraged to respond.

        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?
        Most business and employment opportunities will be procured through the Request for Proposals process, or RFP.  A brief description of the key steps in the RFP model follows.

        1. 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.
        2. 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.
        3. 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.
        4. 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.
        5. 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.
