The U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center’s Facilities Repair and Renewal (FRR) Program offers a fast-track, efficient method for design and execution of all types of facility repairs, renovations and minor construction. This program is available to all districts and their customers as part of the command’s one door to the Corps policy.
The key to the program’s success is innovative use of Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) service/ construction contracts covering all 50 states plus U.S. territories and limited overseas locations. These contracts and how the team uses them offer many benefits and advantages.
The FRR program has two execution strategies available to the customer: FRR Design-Build (DB) MATOC, and the Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) MATOC.
1. The FRR DB contracts are MATOC IDIQ construction type with design-build capabilities. There are three pools: the first two are 8(a) and Small Business, totaling $200 million in capacity, and the third is unrestricted, with a capacity of $290 million – for a total capacity of $490 million. Typical work is general facility repairs and renovations.
2. The ECIP DB contracts are MATOC IDIQ construction type with design-build capabilities. There is one pool: unrestricted, with a capacity of $600 million. Typical work is lighting replacements, HVAC upgrades, and other energy-focused projects.
Projects best suited for FRR are those that have tight budgets and/or schedules and would benefit from the design/build approach. The FRR team’s niche is primarily those projects that are beyond the typical capabilities of a Job Order Contract or a Simplified Acquisition of Base Engineering Requirements (SABER) contractor.
