US Army Corps of Engineers Tulsa District & Red River Watersheds

Ahtna Construction & Primary Products Company, LLC (ACPPC) has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC), for Civil Works Construction Projects in Support of Various Military and Civil Works Projects Within the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Tulsa District. The USACE Tulsa District includes all of Oklahoma and portions of Texas and Kansas. The MATOC will be for five years, consisting of a 3-year base plus two one-year options. Under the MATOC, ACPPC will compete for a total of $49,500,000 in task orders.

The MATOC will support a wide range of Design-Bid-Build (DBB) requirements, including projects for new utilities; relocation of existing utilities; maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation of roads and other paved surfaces; small inhabitable structures; revetment and shoreline protection; small concrete outlet work and control structures; foundation drainage systems; and other ancillary features that support flood control and navigation infrastructure. Disciplines and related work requirements may include:

  1. Civil Construction and Related Activities. Construction surveying, grading and earthwork, dredging, surface and subsurface storm drainage and drainage control structures, storm water management, erosion and sediment control, shoreline protection, clearing and grubbing, paving and surfacing for roads, parking areas, and sidewalks, parking layout, pavement markings, traffic control and signage, gates and fencing, curbs and gutters, railroads, dewatering, landscaping, seeding, sprigging, and sodding, riprap and stone protection, retaining walls, buried structures, slope stabilization, foundations, borings, trenching, berms, and utility relocation.
  2. Structural Construction and Related Activities. Rehabilitation or replacement of concrete structures associated with flood control or navigation infrastructures.
  3. Utilities. Sanitary sewers, lighting, and installation or relocation of other utilities as required for road repair and rebuilding or other site work.

Five MATOCs were awarded through a One-Step Best Value “Trade Off” Source Selection. Under this selection model, all non-cost factors when combined are significantly more important than price. The Government was concerned with achieving the most advantageous balance between technical merit (quality) and price.

A seed project was part of the MATOC which gave the government a way to evaluate both the technical and cost merits of each proposer. ACPPC was also awarded the seed task order! The Fry Creek Project consisted of executing required flood damage repairs to the Fry Creek channel south of 121 St. in Bixby, Oklahoma. The project consists of bypassing Fry Creek around the work zone, removing existing riprap identified to be replaced, and hauling it off site. The stream bed and banks will also be graded for uniformity and new riprap protection placed and graded.

“This is an important award for ACPPC,” states Dave O’Donnell, ACPPC President. “It is the first USACE term contract for the company, and importantly the MATOC is in an area of the US that has a tremendous amount of opportunity, and complements the company’s ongoing success in the nearby Texas Fort Worth District. ACPPC won this MATOC on its own – no JV, teaming partner or mentor, just ACPPC on its own resume!” At a time when Alaska’s construction industry is down, this award allows ACPPC to venture out and diversify its revenue stream.
