AS, which is a small business under NAICS code 541330, is an engineering and scientific consulting firm specializing in environmental, safety, health, energy and related support services. We provide a broad range of support services to our clients. Much of this support is directly relevant to the Seaport-e Statement of Work (SOW) including support in the following functional areas:
3.2 Engineering, System Engineering and Process Engineering Support – This functional area consists of supporting the application of engineering disciplines to technically support development of new and existing Naval capabilities and systems, technically support development of significant alterations to existing systems, support integration and interface of existing equipment or software into different applications or platforms to support the warfighter, and support evaluation of foreign or non-developmental systems, equipment, and technologies. This functional area also includes all support required within the area of environmental engineering of US Navy weapon systems and base-related infrastructure.
3.17 Supply and Provisioning Support - This functional area consists of applying the analytical and technical disciplines required to ensure that fielded warfighting capabilities are materially sustained. The principal objectives of this functional area are to ensure that material for operation and maintenance of warfighter systems is available when required, that materials are properly stored or transported, and inventories are managed in a cost effective manner to sustain supported systems.
3.20 Program Support - This functional area consists of applying the business, financial management, and technical disciplines required to support planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and leading team efforts in managing acquisition programs such that the result places a capable and supportable system in the hands of the warfighter when and where it is needed, and does so at an affordable price. This functional area represents an integration of a complex system of differing but related functional disciplines that must work together to achieve program goals through development, production, deployment, operations, support, and disposal.
Our experience in each of these three functional areas goes back to at least 1994 when we began doing work for the US Navy -- a span of almost 20 years. Examples of our work in each of these functional areas are provided in the following section. Through this experience, AS has gained a solid working relationship and an understanding of the Navy’s procedures, policies, mission, and objectives. This relationship and understanding will prove invaluable in successfully providing Seaport-e clients with quality services.
The AS Team includes RAMCOR Services Group, Inc. (RAMCOR). They bring unique and impressive credentials to our Team, including established offices in two of our approved Geographical Zones. RAMCOR is a woman-owned small disadvantaged (Native American) business that provides management, training and support services to Government agencies, public institutions and private industry.
RAMCOR’s management services include program development, program management, and on-site management services. Their training services consist of foreign language training programs as well as role playing/scenario situational training and development. Their support services include facilities engineering and maintenance; transportation support; security; logistics and warehousing; and technical support in specialized areas such as multimedia, firearms ranges, and driver training operations. AS and RAMCOR have a solid history of working together continuously over the past decade.
Examples of our Team’s experience in each of our approved functional areas follow.
Functional Area 3.2, Engineering Support : AS has provided environmental engineering support related to the inspection, maintenance, operation, and upgrade of the Naval Research Laboratory’s (NRL) underground and above ground fuel and chemical storage tanks to ensure continued compliance with Navy, federal, state and District regulations. This work also included the development of Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans and subsequent review by a Professional Engineer for tanks in the District, Maryland, and Virginia.
As another example of our experience with this functional area, AS has been awarded a contract by the US Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command for nationwide environmental engineering and compliance-related services. These services include SPCC planning; construction and operational permitting and registrations; air risk management planning; water system vulnerability assessments; wellhead protection planning; and the evaluation of new technologies for compliance with applicable military specifications and environmental regulations. Virtually all of these services require expertise in environmental engineering and related engineering disciplines.
Functional Area 3.17, Supply and Provisioning : AS has been continuously providing these types of services to the Navy nationwide for almost 20 years. Our relationship with the Navy began in 1994 as a subcontractor on a Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) contract. Under this contract, AS provided Consolidated Hazardous Materials Reutilization and Inventory Management Program (CHRIMP) support at nine different Navy installations. AS personnel managed implementation teams at many of these sites and provided support on issues associated with identifying, obtaining, and analyzing site-specific processes and process algorithm data to be loaded into Government Designated Software. We also participated in preparing documentation for CHRIMP implementation, such as the Activity Implementation Manual, a document addressing implementation and operation of CHRIMP at Navy shore activities. AS’ work with NAVSUP subsequently expanded to include systems operation training related to the development of the web-enabled Regional Hazardous Inventory Control System (RHICS).
AS has also successfully managed, operated, and maintained the CHRIMP and associated Hazardous Material Minimization Centers (HAZMINCENs) at the US Naval Academy and Naval Support Activity Annapolis under contracts with Fleet and Industrial Supply Center (FISC) Norfolk since 1997. This effort is notable in that these activities were two of the first to be fully “CHRIMPed.”
Our work with hazardous material management for the Navy has expanded significantly over the past few years including being part of each of the teams managing 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) contracts for FISC Norfolk, San Diego, and Jacksonville for work across the country.
Functional Area 3.20, Program Support : We are providing this type of support at the NRL related to their National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) program. NEPA regulations require the Navy to consider the environmental impact of its actions. As such, our role in supporting this program has been to assess the impact of actions not only physically located at the NRL (i.e., facility modification, decommissioning, and demolition) but also other actions under their purview such as at-sea research projects on the effects of underwater sound (marine acoustics) on marine animals and human divers/swimmers. Tasks include developing and maintaining a NEPA tracking database and drafting NEPA-related documents such as Categorical Exclusions, Environmental Assessments, and Public Affairs Plans.
RAMCOR performs a wide variety of support services for federal agencies related to this functional area including the management, operation, and maintenance of law enforcement training facilities across the country for the Department of Homeland Security. AS is supporting RAMCOR at these sites with environmental program support.
Upon receipt, Task Orders and corresponding technical instructions will be posted here in a tabular format.
