The Program uses streamlined processes that provide low-cost, quick response contracts for the operation, preventive maintenance, repair and replacement of equipment and other facility support for DOD installations worldwide.

The Program has a suite of Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) O&M service contracts available to execute maintenance requirements. These contractors were selected on their ability to perform in medical facilities and are knowledgeable in The Joint Commission (TJC) and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) requirements.

Highly complex medical facilities are under full-and-open competition within the contractor pool; smaller, less-complex clinics are set-aside for small businesses within the pool. The contracts expire Feb. 11, 2020, and include the following companies:

Unrestricted Pool Contractor Pool

Restricted (Small Business) Contractor Pool

ABM Government Services, LLC

ACEPEX Management Corporation

EMCOR Government Services Inc.

Electronic Metrology Laboratory, LLC

J&J Maintenance Inc.

Facility Services Management Inc.

Johnson Controls Building Automation Sys

Quality Services International, LLC

SODEXO Management Inc.

 

These contracts can provide scheduled maintenance, corrective maintenance, pest management, aseptic management, grounds maintenance, biomedical equipment maintenance and repair/replacement services in support of medical or non-medical facilities.

Any government agency can place an order against these contracts for O&M services at their medical facilities. The availability of a wide range of O&M services in these basic contracts allows the OMEE/PSS Program and its customers to practice one-stop shopping, thereby achieving efficiency, cost savings and reduced requirement for government management.

The typical O&M task order includes a Firm Fixed Price line for the preventative maintenance work and a corrective maintenance line that can be used for repairs/replacements, or small projects. O&M services can be awarded for 12-month periods with up to four renewable yearly options. These task orders are performance based which reduces the government’s risk.

The Medical Project Support Services (PSS) portion of the program provides quick response medical support services to the Department of Defense and other federal agencies.  Services offered by the include general project support services, facility assessment services, planning services, project development services, site analysis services, technical project management, occupancy support services, facilities system support, contract surveillance/management, and other supplemental services in support of U.S. government medically-related activities.

The program supports CONUS activities, as well as specific OCONUS locations for the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), Air Force Medical Support Agency and U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. In addition, as the designated Enterprise-Level Quality Assurance (QA) Coordinator for the MEDCOM Sustainment Restoration and Modernization Program, the team works with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers geographic districts to provide USACE QA support. 

The key to our success is the ability to quickly respond to customer needs by having various contracting tools available, with medically astute contractors. Our PSS IDIQ contractors were specifically selected based on their qualifications and experience in medical facility support services. The program uses a variety of contracting approaches, including Services MATOC, Architect Engineer (AE) Services Contracts, Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), and GSA schedules. 

The existing PSS Services MATOC supports requirements in the continental United States and includes the following firms:

 

Argo LRS

NIKA

Clarke

Polukai

HFS

TEAM Integrated Engineering Inc.

 

 

The program is also in the early stages of an AE acquisition to support medical requirements that fall under the Architect Engineer Services umbrella.
