Project Description:  

The purpose of this solicitation is to award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts to provide a variety of construction work throughout Okinawa, Japan.  MATOC program is defined as an IDIQ contract entered into with two (2) or more sources pursuant to the same solicitation. The envisioned MATOC program is a firm-fixed price (FFP), IDIQ contract that provides a Design-Build (D-B) and Design-Bid-Build (DBB) vehicle for the execution of a broad range of Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization (SRM) construction work to support U.S. Government facilities in Okinawa, Japan. Contractors will be expected to accomplish a wide variety of construction tasks involving multiple engineering/construction disciplines and trades, to include the likelihood of design and/or support of design for SRM projects. During the life of the contract, projects will be identified as task orders and will be competed amongst those successful contractor(s) who receive a basic contract under the MATOC.

SRM construction work includes renovation, maintenance, repair, restoration, and alteration of existing facilities, but may also include major repairs and limited new construction within projects.  Work may also entail the restoration, sustainment and/or modernization of water lines, sewer lines, roadways, building exteriors, roofing, building interiors, Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems and components, refrigeration systems, fire suppression systems, fuel pipelines, storage systems, distribution and utilization systems (including lightning), power generators and Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS), or the abatement and disposal of asbestos, lead-based paint, and petroleum-contaminated material. Most task orders will include completion of a design prior to construction.


Sustainment. Sustainment means the maintenance and repair activities necessary to keep an inventory of facilities in good working order. Work includes regular roof replacement, refinishing of wall surfaces, repairing and replacement of heating and cooling systems, replacing tile and carpeting, and similar types of work.

Restoration. Restoration means the restoration of real property to such a condition that it may be used for its designated purpose. Restoration includes repair or replacement work to restore facilities damaged by inadequate sustainment, excessive age, natural disaster, fire, accident, or other causes.

Modernization. Modernization activities involve the alteration or replacement of facilities solely to implement new or higher standards (including regulatory changes); to accommodate new functions; or to replace building components that typically last more than 50 years (such as foundations and structural elements).

No projects utilizing Military Construction (MILCON) funding are included under this MATOC. 

Individual task orders are anticipated to range between $500K - $8M (USD)/ ¥50,000,000 - ¥800,000,000 (JPY). The total program value is not to exceed $245M (USD)/ ¥24,500,000,000 (JPY) over the ordering period. Each contract awarded will contain an ordering period not to exceed seven (7) years total. Performance bonds will be required per individual task order, in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 28.

After award, fair opportunity will be provided to all awardees for each task order solicitation. Each task order solicitation will identify any specific criteria unique to the task order.

NOTE: This MATOC program will be performed in its entirety in the country of Japan. A successful offeror must be licensed and registered to perform work in the country of Japan.  


1.  The Government anticipates the issuance of a Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitation. The acquisition will be conducted as a Two-Phased procurement where in the first phase, the number of competitors will be reduced by preliminary evaluation, and in the second phase, a best value procurement is conducted between the remaining competitors. Proposals will be evaluated in Phase One to determine which offerors are qualified to submit a proposal in Phase Two. Only those offerors invited to participate in Phase Two will be eligible to compete for a MATOC award. MATOC awards will be made to Offerors whose proposals represent the best overall value and has been determined to be the most beneficial to the Government in Phase Two. Evaluation methodology for this procurement is expected to consist of six overall factors.

Phase One:

Factor 1 – Bonding Capability

Factor 2 – Design-Build Capability

Factor 3 – Construction Capability

Factor 4 – Past Performance


Phase Two:

Factor 5 - Seed Project Technical Approach

Factor 6 - Seed Project Price

Offerors must meet all acceptability criteria for all factors in Phase One to participate in Phase Two. A seed project will be provided in Phase Two via amendment to offerors determined to be most highly qualified in Phase One. Phase Two criteria will be comprised of a non-priced technical evaluation factor and a priced factor.  For Phase Two, the Government will utilize the Tradeoff Process for Source Selection, in accordance with FAR 15.101-1 to determine whose proposal represents the best overall value and determined to be the most beneficial to the Government. In Phase Two, the non-cost factor, Factor 5, is approximately equal to Factor 6 (price).
