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.

If any

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
