Project Description: Baltimore Harbor Maintenance Dredging, Maryland FY 19

The proposed procurement is unrestricted, NAICS 237990 with a magnitude of construction between $25,000,000.00 and $100,000,000.

The Government intends to solicit an Invitation for Bid (IFB) for dredging of approximately 2,750,000 cubic yards (CY) of material removed from proposed dredging of Federal Channels serving Baltimore Harbor. It is anticipated the work would be performed in the Fall-Winter of 2019- 2020. The dredging depth varies from 50 to 51 feet with an additional 1 or 2 feet of allowable overdepth. The channels vary in width from 400 to 1,850 feet. The material will be dredged by clamshell and scow and be placed in the Masonville Dredged Material containment Facility, (500,000 CY), and the Paul S. Sarbanes Ecosystems Restoration Project at Poplar Island (2,250,000 CY). A large portion of the work may be performed during the winter months when weather conditions are most severe. Work will also be accomplished in a heavy commercial waterway supporting the Port of Baltimore. The equipment required for this work commonly consists of two 40 plus cubic yard clamshell dredges, one 24-30 inch
hydraulic unloader, six to eight large tugs, six to eight 2,500 - 6,000 cubic yard material scows, and appropriate attendant plant and pipeline. The material will be dredged by clamshell and scow and placed within an anticipated performance period.

The solicitation will be provided in an electronic format, free of charge on or about 21 July 2019, to all authenticated account holders registered with the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) System. Please note that all US Army Corps of Engineers acquisitions are considered sensitive, but unclassified documents and require users to have valid MPIN entered in the FBO systems to access package.
