Hands On Inspections for Water Handling resources

(This is a COMPLIANCE inspection)

Region 6 (R6) is implementing a new inspection process in order to comply with the 2022 VIPR Water Handling solicitation.

  1. Once the solicitation is closed Vendors/resources will be randomly selected and notified by R6 Contract Operations of selection for a Hands On inspection.
  2. The Vendor will then select an Inspection Provider they wish to work with to get the resource inspected.
  3. Vendors and Inspection Providers will work together to arrange an inspection.
    1. Vendor must provide the certified weight tickets from their Technical Quote submission to the Inspector.
    2. Vendors are responsible for payment to the Inspection Provider.
  4. The Inspection Provider(s) will provide a copy of the Post Award Inspection checklist/report to the Vendor and a copy to Region 6 Fire Contract Operations by email to SM.FS.fact@usda.gov no later than 5:00 p.m. May 20, 2022.

Equipment Inspections must be complete by May 13, 2022.

**RESOURCES THAT WERE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A “HANDS ON INSPECTION” FOR THE 2022 FIRE SEASON AND HAVE NOT COMPLETED AN INSPECTION OR DID NOT PASS AN INSPECTION MUST COMPLETE A “HANDS ON INSPECTION” BY MAY 12, 2023, OR IT WILL BE SUBJECT TO A NON-AWARD DECISION.**

A list of Approved Equipment Inspection Providers is posted to the Region 6 Fire Contracting Operations website (formerly known as the FACT website) -  https://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/r6/fire-aviation/?cid=fseprd891037&width=full

 

Per D.16.2 – HANDS ON INSPECTION

(a) The Government may perform hands on Inspections of randomly selected resources prior to ranking the dispatch priority lists to ensure compliance with the equipment requirements in Section D.2. The Region in which the resource is assigned, based on the Host Dispatch Center selected, will notify the resource if it has been selected for Inspection.….

(b) If selected for an Inspection the resource must complete and pass the Inspection by the closing date for inspections as specified by the Regional Contract Operations contact or the resource will not receive an award and will not be placed on a dispatch priority list during the first operational year of the solicitation (Calendar Year (CY) 2022). If the resource is selected for an Inspection but fails to pass the Inspection in CY2022 it will be able to be reinspected during an annual review in approximately spring of 2023.
