As discussed on Reed Smith’s Environmental Law Resource blog, the U.S. Army’s Engineering and Support Center’s (USACE) issued a request for proposals for large-scale renewable projects related to $7 billion in renewable energy contracts over the next 10 years. The USACE recently issued its fifth amendment to the request for proposals for the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) solicitation. In this Reed Smith Client Alert, we discuss the amendment, including the revised pricing criteria, the clarification of some aspects of small business participation and several changes to the bid preparation requirements.
