Charleston is soliciting information from potential sources for engineering and technical services for automated fuel handling equipment (AFHE) and associated systems such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), instrumentation, sensors, automated controls, pipeline/tanks monitoring, leak detection, safety for spill prevention, LAN/WAN, environmental surveys and enterprise web design and support. Services will require site surveys, engineering, drafting, systems engineering, equipment/material procurement, fabrication, equipment installation, system testing and verification, investigations and analysis, development of integrated logistics support plans and repair of electronic/electrical equipment. The development of engineering plans, manuals and reports, maintenance of installed and operational AFHE systems, environmental studies associated with bulk fuel storage, and enterprise portal design and support are also required. Additionally, services may require design and installation of AFHE site surveillance technologies such as closed circuit television (CCTV), intrusion detection systems (IDS), and access control systems (ACS). The period of performance will be a 12-month base period and four 1-year options. Closing date for responses is Dec. 21, 2001.
