Current Sole-Source Contracts by DNR

Contract to Relocate Overhead Electrical Line

(May 8, 2014) The Washington State Department of Natural Resources contemplates awarding a sole source contract to Puget Sound Energy (PSE) to provide the temporary relocation of PSE’s overhead electrical line to facilitate the safe working conditions for two fish barrier replacement projects.

DNR is preparing to advertise a fish barrier replacement project near an overhead utility owned and operated by Puget Sound Energy (PSE). Because the utility is owned by a third party other than DNR and a scope of work for a relocation plan is not clear at this time, it was determined to be unreasonable to ask the bridge contractor, or any other contractor, to bid on the utility relocation portion of the project. PSE is unable to design a specific relocation plan for worker safety at this time because the needs of the contractor, during bridge construction, are not known at this time. DNR decided it would be best to have PSE design and relocate their overhead utility to match the needs of the bridge contractor, once it is known. The bridge contractor and PSE can determine their needs and coordinate their schedules to determine the best possible outcome for the bridge contractor, PSE, and the utility customer.

The contract will be issued on or about June 1, 2014, for four months with an option to extend the timeframe to match the bridge contractor’s completion schedule. The dollar value is estimated at twenty five thousand dollars ($25,000).

Offerors contemplating the above requirements are required to submit capability statements detailing their ability to meet the state’s requirements within five (5) calendar days of this announcement. The following information should be included in the capability statements: description of a plan to work with the bridge contractor and PSE to design and relocate the overhead utility that meets the safety and schedule needs of the bridge contractor, the business needs of PSE, and the power needs of the DNR correctional camp.

In the absence of other qualified sources, it is the state’s intent to make a sole source award of the contract.

Notice of Sole Source Services Contract to Paint Aircraft

(April 25, 2014): The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) contemplates awarding a sole source contract to NW Helicopters to paint a helicopter.

DNR had bid out this work in early 2014. Two firms responded and one was then purchased and could not complete the work. Therefore DNR intends to award the helicopter paint work to NW Helicopters.

The contract will be issued on or about May 10, 2014, with painting to be completed as soon as possible.

Offerors contemplating the above requirements are required to submit capability statements detailing their ability to meet the state’s requirements within five (5) calendar days of this announcement.

In the absence of other qualified sources, it is the state’s intent to make a sole source award of the contract. 

To submit capability statements or for questions, contact: Laura Lowe, Contracts Manager at laura.lowe@dnr.wa.gov  or 360-902-1665
