To: Potential Offerors
The Forest Service, Department of Interior and Montana Department
of Natural Resources and Conservation (MT DNRC) issued solicitations
for the following equipment/services in 2007 and 2008, to
obtain resources for preseason incident agreements (EERAs).
Rather than the agencies setting the price, this method
requires vendors to compete by providing a price, as well
as personnel and equipment information for consideration.
In order to receive an EERA for these categories of equipment/services,
vendors need to respond to the solicitations when they were
issued. Only one award nationally will be made for any piece
of equipment or service within a category. The Forest Service
and Department of Interior EERAs that are issued will be
for a period of 3 years. There will not be another opportunity
to sign up these types of equipment/services until the end
of the three year period. MT DNRC agreements are issued
for one year.
Standard specifications are developed in an effort to
increase consistency. The solicitations will only be available
online; they will not be mailed out hardcopy.
Vendors must maintain a current registration in the Contractor
Central Registration system (http://www.ccr.gov/).
This registration must be updated annually.
