2. PROJECT INFORMATION: A-E ******** will be assigned by Task Orders on the IDIQ contract established as a result of this solicitation. Each task order to be issued will fully describe the project to be accomplished. The types of projects may include all or part of the following:


(1) Field assignments which may include locating borings in the field and providing location information consisting of elevation, latitude and longitude, and station and offset; taking soil borings and sealing bore holes; setting permanent bench marks as well as installing piezometers, lasers, visual tracking targets, pressure transducers, strain gages, slope inclinometers, wells, settlement plugs and settlement plates. Procedures for Drilling in Earth Embankments are to be performed in accordance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) ER-1110-1-1807 and EM 1110-1-1804. Contractor must have the capability to conduct the following test types: pile driving , soil and wall displacements, obtaining subsurface information by using cone penetrometer and vane shear and performing noise and vibration monitoring. Hand auger, soil probe, general type (3-inch x 42-inch thin wall Shelby tubes), split spoon and 5-inch x 4.5-foot undisturbed fixed-piston type methods are to be used in the soil boring operations. Samples from the thin wall Shelby tube and split spoon samplers must have a minimum diameter of 2-7/8 inches ID and 1-3/8 inches ID respectively. Some borings will require hard access (marsh, swamp or heavily forested areas) and work over water requiring special equipment. Samples must be delivered promptly to the testing lab, either Government or A-E, as specified by the task order. All sampling equipment including the sampling head device for 5-inch diameter sampling, 5-inch diameter sample tubes, and sample extruder for 5-inch undisturbed borings will be furnished by the Contractor. Corps representative may inspect field operations to verify geotechnical investigations are being performed in accordance with USACE EM 1110-1-1804.
(2) Testing laboratory and storage facility shall be established/furnished by the contractor within 50 road miles of the New Orleans District once the contract has been awarded. Testing laboratory assignments may include classifying, determining water content and Atterberg limits, performing unconfined compression tests, performing (Q) and (R) triaxial compression shear tests, permeability test, performing direct shear (S) tests, direct simple shear tests (DSS), 4-inch diameter consolidation tests, mechanical & hydrometer grain size and hydrometer ; performing 15-blow and 25-blow compaction control testing on selected samples; computing and compiling test results; furnishing boring and laboratory data in both text and CADD files fully compatible with the Bentley MicroStation CADD software (Version 8 or later) and in the form of plotted boring logs. The A-E contractor will perform extruding of 5-inch undisturbed samples under controlled lab environment. Laboratory soil testing shall be performed in accordance with USACE EM 1110-2-1906. Other ASTM tests may be assigned.
(3) Design assignments may include selection of design parameters; stability analyses of levees, dikes, earthen structures, flood risk reduction structures, pump stations, and floodwalls; stability analyses of slopes for revetments, channels and excavations; pile capacity curves; settlement analyses; physical and numerical geomechanical (Fast Lagrangian of Continua Version 7 or later, FLAC) modeling , cantilevered, anchored, and braced sheetpile analyses; bearing capacity determinations; periodic structural inspection; levee periodic inspections; retaining and flood walls analyses; seepage and piping analyses; dewatering design; downdrag ; ground water study; settlement induced bending moments in piles; axial and lateral loads in piles; soil flow around piles; filter design; relief well design; pore pressures in clay; wall and soil displacement, and operation and interpretation of data obtained from A-E provided pile driver analyzer or static pile load testing. The contractor must be capable of deriving material properties for soil and rock characterization and for soil/rock/structure interfa...
