MARAD will issue a solicitation for layberth services for two large Ro/Ro vessels on the US West Coast. This solicitation is a new requirement. The Invitation for bid for the solicitation will be a base year and 4 option years with an alternative bid for a base year and nine option years.
The value of the overall contract will depend upon if dredging is required to meet the water depth requirement and if a 5-year or 10-year contract is awarded. If no dredging is required, the 5-year estimate is $11M, with dredging it is $15M. For the 10 year w/o dredging is $15M, with dredging the estimate is $24M. Recent acquisition history shows there is no small business capability.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on beta.SAM.gov as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
