Synopsis: Added: Aug 29, 2016 8:18 pm This is a special notice prepared in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 5.2 "Synopses of Proposed Contract Actions" US Army Corps of
Engineers; Portland District intends to award a sole-source, Firm-Fixed Price contract with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), 4034 Fairview Industrial Rd SE, Salem, OR,
97302-1142. The purpose of this acquisition is for the contractor to evaluate the habitat use of juvenile spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead in the mainstem Willamette River and major
spawning tributaries. The Contractor shall describe and characterize migration and rearing patterns (timing and physical habitat preferences) for juvenile Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus
tshawytscha) and winter Steelhead (O. mykiss) in the mainstem Willamette River and the lower reaches of major spawning tributaries relative to river flow. Period of performance for these services
is from date of award thru February 28, 2017.
The ODFW Spring Chinook Research Project, funded by the federal Sport Fish Restoration Program, has long-term data on juvenile Chinook rearing in the mainstem Willamette, the North and South
Santiam River downstream of flood control dams, and the McKenzie River. These data were collected by a beach seining survey that has been ongoing since 2002. Juvenile Chinook salmon captured
during this survey were implanted with PIT tags and released at the same site where they were caught. Tagged fish were recaptured by repeated sampling of available rearing habitat and detected
by PIT tag antennae at Willamette Falls, Leaburg Dam, and the Walterville power canal. Tag detections provide extensive data on migration timing through the mainstem Willamette River. These
data will be summarized to provide information on the characteristics of rearing habitat, relative abundance of juvenile Chinook salmon, and migration timing. Important periods of rearing and
migration will be highlighted for flow management planning. Steelhead and rainbow trout were also collected as part of this effort, but were far less numerous than Chinook salmon, and were not
Use of the ODFW database to prepare this evaluation is critical to achieving both ESA compliance with NMFS RPAs and completion of the WBR Project allocating storage water for instream flow
purposes. The ODFW database is not available to the public and therefore makes the ODFW the only source available for this analysis. For these reasons, it is in the best interest of the
Government to award this contract to ODFW.
The statutory authority for this non-competitive acquisition is 10 U.S.C 2304(c) (1) as implemented by FAR 13.106-1(b) for purchases not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold.
THIS NOTICE IS NOT A REQUEST FOR COMPETITIVE PROPOSALS OR QUOTATIONS, AND A SOLICITATION WILL NOT BE POSTED.
