oil conference

The US Army Corps of Engineers is sponsoring a pre-proposal conference in Dallas, Texas on July 14 Restore Iraqi Oil as part of awarding two new competetively bid oil infrastructure contracts.
The presolicitation notice, available at FedBizOpps, states that the Corps will award two Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) cost plus award fee 24-month contracts with three one-year options. The maximum value for the life of each contract will be $500 million and will have a minimum value of $500,000.

The contracts to be awarded will replace the non-competitive contract for emergency services work related to the oil infrastructure that was awarded to Kellogg Brown & Root by the Corps prior to the start of the war in Iraq.
