Washington DC Area Benefits from US Military Construction Funds
US military construction money usually flows out from Washington, DC, to various parts of the country and the world. The amounts are often large and can have a major impact on a community’s economy.
However, there has been a growing trend for that same money to go into the communities surrounding the Washington, DC area. Just in the last month, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington has awarded up to $1.25 billion in construction contracts for work in Washington and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.
In early January 2010, NAVFAC awarded up to $750 million to 5 firms for DC area construction, and on Jan 27/10, 4 small business qualifiers received construction contracts from NAVFAC Washington worth up to $500 million…
The 4 small business qualifiers are:
- Arriba Corp. in Norfolk, VA (N40080-10-D-0495);
- Allen & Shariff Corp. in Columbia, MD (N40080-10-D-0496);
- Corinthian Contractors in Arlington, VA (N40080-10-D-0497); and
- G-W Management Services in Rockville, MD (N40080-10-D-0498).
These contractors were each awarded an indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity small multiple-award construction contract for various large dollar construction projects within the NAVFAC Washington’s area of responsibility (AOR).
The contractors will provide all labor, supervision, engineering, materials, equipment, tools, parts, supplies and transportation to perform all work described in the specifications.
Work on this contract will be performed within NAVFAC Washington’s AOR to include Maryland (55%); Virginia (30%); and Washington, DC (15%). The term of the contract is not to exceed 60 months, with an expected completion date of January 2015.
These contracts were competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online Web site, with 10 proposals received by NAVFAC Washington. These 4 contractors may compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded contract.
