Heavy Lift 7 Contract Extended to May 2018

On 27 July 2017, the Army Contracting Command – Rock Island awarded Modification P00013 to extend the existing Heavy Lift 7 Contract W52P1J-11-D-0060 for the period of 01 September 2017 through 31 May 2018.

This modification will continue critical line haul support services throughout the Kuwait and Central Command AOR. Services to be provided include all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, and non-personal services necessary to perform commercial line haul, heavy lift and personnel transportation services.

This extension is made under the authority 10 U.S.C. 2304 (c)(1), Only One Responsible Source, as implemented by FAR 6.302-1.

The contract period of performance was initially for a base year plus four option periods.

FAR clause 52.217-8 was exercised for a period of performance of 01 September 2016 through 28 February 2017. Subsequently, a six-month extension was approved and exercised IAW FAR 6.302-1 for performance through 31 August 2017.

The exercise of this extension extends performance through 31 May 2018, with the option to extend an additional three months through 31 August 2018, as approved in J&A 17-053.

The nine-month extension was awarded to IAP, HETCO, KGL & PAE under 6.302-1 as it is unlikely to award to any other source as it would result in unacceptable delays in fulfilling agency’s requirements.

A follow-on competition is underway for the follow-on Heavy Lift contract. The solicitation, W52P1J-16-R-0027, was issued on 15 February 2017, closed on 12 April 2017, and proposals are currently being evaluated.

 

This notice is posted in accordance with FAR 5.101 and FAR 5.3.
