in place is proposed, this plan should contain the details of the transition, including necessary coordination with DOE.
In addition to the discussion above, the offeror must provide a proposed Statement of Work (SOW) which, as revised and accepted by DOE, will become part of the Cooperative Agreement if the proposal is selected. The sow must outline the project tasks according to a work breakdown structure listing the logical sequence of activities to successfully complete the project.
The proposed sow must clearly define and be structured on the basis of the following phases:
Phase 1: Design and permitting
Phase 2: Construction and Startup ("Shakedown")
Phase 3: Operation, Data Collection, Reporting, and Disposition
Subdivision of phases is permissible. It is recognized that some proposed projects may have already completed one
or more of the above phases.
The sow must include a definitive list of the deliverables to
be furnished to the Government during each phase.
technical data are to be withheld, they must be identified in
accordance with SECTION III.38, "Rights in Technical Data.'
The Government requires as deliverables plans, schedules, and
management reports to be used by the participant to plan, control, manage, and execute the project. The Government also requires the reporting of technical, economic, and environmental
data that will result from the project.
ct. The list of minimum
required reporting is contained in Attachment C to the Model
Cooperative Agreement which is provided as Appendix B to the
These reports include:
0 An Environmental Monitoring Outline, Plan, Quarterly and
Annual Environmental Monitoring Reports. As a guideline,
the format developed by the Synthetic Fuels Corporation is
provided within Attachment C to Appendix B.
An Environmental Report containing site-specific information
required for DOE to satisfy the NEPA requirements. (See
SECTION III.27, "NEPA Strategy," and Appendix J, "Informa
tion Requirements for NEPA.") This report must be provided,
and the NEPA process completed, before detailed design or
construction can begin.
0 Project Evaluation Plan(s) and subsequent Project Evaluation
Report(s) for each project phase which will provide the basis
for the decision to proceed to the next phase (see Appendix B, Model Cooperative Agreement, Article 11(c)(2) and Article III).
Other minimum requirements are further described in Appendix B.
The Sow must include scheduled times for formal project reviews.
The number and timing of such reviews are to be proposed. The
Government requires at least the following reviews:
(1) Phase 1 - Two (2) reviews to be held at about the 40% and
90% design points. If design is partially or fully
completed at the time of award, the project reviews will
be adjusted accordingly.
(2) Phase II - Two (2) reviews, to be held at about the 20%
and 100% completion points.
(3) Phase III
One (1) review.
The Model Cooperative Agreement provides for decision
points at the conclusion of project phases. The proposed SOW
must allow for these decision points. The Government recognizes
that time and cost can be reduced if phases overlap (e.g.,
the purchase of long lead-time items may be initiated before
design is completed) and is willing to accomodate the initia
tion of specific tasks of a later phase before the earlier
phase is completed, if deemed necessary.
Summary of Exceptions, Deviations and Assumptions:
The proposer shall identify and explain any exceptions, deviations,
or conditional assumptions taken with respect to the requirements of
this Technical Proposal. Any exceptions, etc., taken must contain
sufficient explanation and justification to permit evaluation.
benefits to the Government shall be explained for each exception
taken. Such exceptions will not, of themselves, automatically cause
a proposal to be termed unacceptable, however, a large number of
exceptions, or one or more significant exceptions not providing
benefit to the Government may result in rejection of the proposal as
The Business and Management Proposal consists of the offeror's
presentation of his capability to successfully manage and conduct
the proposed activities. At a minimum, the Business and Management
Proposal must contain the following information in the following
