The Directorate of Contracting's Contracting Construction Section (AFTC/PZIOC) at the Air Force Test Center at Edwards AFB, CA is conducting preliminary planning market research in accordance with (IAW) Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 10 to obtain information from potential eligible and interested contractors for an anticipated five-year, firm-fixed-price (FFP) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) construction contract for a broad range of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) requirements to include repair, maintenance, and replacement of HVAC systems. The associated North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 238220, Plumbing, Heating, and Air-Conditioning Contractors, with a small business size standard of $15M. The Service Code is J041, Maintenance and Repair of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning Equipment.
IAW FAR 19.203(c), the anticipated acquisition will be a competitive 8(a) Program set-aside since the requirement has been accepted by the Small Business Administration under the 8(a) Program. The Government is particularly interested in determining if there are certified 8(a) Program Participants with a bona fide place of business located in the State of California who are interested in and capable of meeting this requirement.
Description of Work: The Contractor shall provide all labor, materials, equipment, and supervision required to perform repair, maintenance, and replacement of HVAC systems inclusive of Energy Management & Control Systems (EMCS). The Contractor shall meet all applicable Federal, State, and local codes, Air Force Instruction (AFI) requirements, Uniform Facility Criteria, and the Edwards AFB Base Design Standards, except for Architect-Engineer (A-E) services as referenced in the design standards. No A-E type work is included in this requirement.

1. Company name, CAGE code, and DUNS number;
2. Bonding capacity for single award and aggregate;
