                                          PERSONNEL AND SUBCONTRACTOR MANAGEMENT
                            HORNE ENGINEERING has approximately 25 employees in offices nationwide. Because our business
                            is based on providing resources to staff multiple contracts with simultaneous work orders, we
                            have developed aggressive and innovative programs for recruiting and retaining high-quality
                            personnel. Our recruiting program includes the use of employee referrals, World Wide Web
                            advertising, an extensive resume database, professional associations, industry referrals, and
                            minority databank registries. The employee retention program includes conducting annual salary
                            surveys, insurance, 401K, bonus plans, awards, training incentives, and competitive leave
                            packages.
                            In addition, HORNE ENGINEERING has proven program and subcontractor management systems,
                            focused on establishing responsibility, authority, and accountability for each task order and for
                            sub-tasks within task orders. Generally, we assign our primary subcontractors complete, discrete
                            tasks to maintain continuity and ensure accountability.
                            We actively manage our subcontractors by establishing very clear up-front expectations and
                            requirements for performance and quality and evaluating all products. Our Program Manager and
                            Contract Officer establish the means and interface necessary to verify subcontractor performance
                            early in the project. Our qualified performance auditors check, inspect, or witness activities of
                            the subcontractor. Final acceptance of the work includes all warranties required by the contract.
                            Our primary evaluation criteria include quality; compliance with all government flow-down
                            provisions; compliance with budget and schedule requirements, occupational safety and health
                            requirements, site-specific training requirements; and compliance with the FAR.
                            We provide an efficient and proven project management structure by having our Project Manager
                            (PM) serve as the single point of contact for our project management team. Upon receipt of an
                            RFP, the PM will immediately identify an appropriate Proposal Manager. Once a clear and detailed
                            understanding of scope and objectives is achieved, the PM and the Proposal Manager select
                            qualified team staff and identify additional subcontractor support needs. Within 24 hours, the
                            project management team has a preliminary staffing plan and assignments to prepare the cost
                            estimate and has initiated contact with the client. We deliver our cost proposals to clients within
                            10 working days. If requested, this time can be reduced.
                            We are accustomed to having to respond to multiple RFPs simultaneously, and our business is
                            built on the assumption that we must handle numerous requests at once. We have contract
                            specialists who are assigned specifically to the task of assisting prepare cost proposals and other
                            contract documents.

                            HORNE ENGINEERING operating strategy has always included a strong commitment and adherence

                            Assurance (QA) Program that is based on four Total Quality Management principles:
                                 Employee participation
                                 Client satisfaction

                            9001 certification. It establishes quality standards for HORNE ENGINEERING and defines procedures
                            for ensuring that client’s expectations regarding cost, schedule, and technical performance are
                            fully met.
                            The program requires participation of employees at every level of HORNE ENGINEERING structure,
                            and encourages managers and technical staff to take pride in their work and responsibility for
                            ensuring that work is done correctly the first time. The QA Program is designed to reduce the
                            incidence of problems and effect implementation of corrective actions, including:
                                 Assignment of Responsibilities – Appointing of qualified QA and management personnel
                                  having the requisite knowledge and experience

                                  to meet client requirements
                                 Quality Control Review – Conducting design reviews, peer review, constructability reviews,
                                  and value engineering reviews, and using checklists to enhance reviewers’ effectiveness

Contract No. GS-10F-0281K                                                                                                    33
                                                   SAFETY AND ACCIDENT PREVENTION
                            Health and safety protection is of paramount importance to HORNE ENGINEERING. We have had no
                            lost time accidents on our projects in over 517,000 staff-hours. Our insurance Experience
                            Modification Rate (EMR) is 1.05. Where required, projects have a site health and safety plan that
                            is specific to the work being performed and meets the OSHA EM 385 1-1 and client requirements.
                            Specific health and safety concerns for a given project are identified and detailed by our in-house
                            staff, with input from our field personnel. The implementation of the plan is the responsibility of
                            all HORNE ENGINEERING personnel involved in the project.
                            Our Corporate Health and Safety group assists in the preparation of necessary project specific
                            Health and Safety plans. This group also provides training and oversight and performs audits of
                            field operations. Prior to performing any intrusive work on a project, a site-specific Safety,
                            Health, and Emergency Response Plan is prepared. This plan describes the hazards of each task,
                            specifies engineering controls, details the levels of personal protection, and lists procedures for
                            emergency response and other site-specific requirements.
                            The superintendent and/or the health and safety manager are responsible for ensuring that all
                            personnel are in compliance with the health and safety plan requirements. On-site risk
                            identification is conducted daily to ensure the proper protection of project personnel and others
                            working in close proximity to the site, and the local environment.
                            Our employees are properly trained for hazardous waste site work in accordance with OSHA
                            requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.120. All technical personnel receive an in-house, 40-hour
                            HAZWOPER training seminar and are required to take an annual 8-hour refresher course. When
                            required, applicable National Fire Protection Association, American Petroleum Institute, and
                            Petroleum Equipment Institute requirements and guidelines are followed to ensure that work is
                            conducted in a safe manner. Confined space entry is performed only in strict conformance with
                            applicable training and performance requirements.

                                                            ORDERING PROCEDURES
                            PLACEMENT OF ORDERS:
                            (a) Delivery orders under this contract may be placed by either the using Federal agencies or the
                                General Services Administration's Federal Supply Service (FSS).
                            (b) Orders may be placed through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) or mailed in paper form.
                                EDI orders shall be placed using the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) X12
                                Standard for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) format.
                            (c) If the Contractor agrees, GSA's Federal Supply Service (FSS) will place all orders by EDI using
                                computer-to-computer EDI. If computer-to-computer EDI is not possible, FSS will use an
                                alternative EDI method allowing the Contractor to receive orders by facsimile transmission.
                                Subject to the Contractor's agreement, other agencies may place orders by EDI.
                            (d) When computer-to-computer EDI procedures will be used to place orders, the Contractor
                                shall enter into one or more Trading Partner Agreements (TPA) with each Federal agency
                                placing orders electronically in order to ensure mutual understanding by the parties of certain
                                electronic transaction conventions and to recognize the rights and responsibilities of the
                                parties as they apply to this method of placing orders. The TPA must identify, among other
                                things, the third party provider(s) through which electronic orders are placed, the transaction
                                sets used, security procedures, and guidelines for implementation. Federal agencies may
                                obtain a sample format to customize as needed from the office specified in (g) below.
                            (e) The Contractor shall be responsible for providing its own hardware and software necessary to
                                transmit and receive data electronically. Additionally, each party to the TPA shall be
                                responsible for the costs associated with its use of third party provider services.
                            (f) Nothing in the TPA will invalidate any part of this contract between the Contractor and the
                                General Services Administration. All terms and conditions of this contract that otherwise
                                would be applicable to a mailed order shall apply to the electronic order.
                            (g) The basic content and format of the TPA will be provided by:
                                                    General Services Administration

                                                    3975 University Drive, Suite 100

                            ORDERING PROCEDURES FOR SERVICES
                            The following ordering procedures were developed to assist our customer agencies in the
                            purchase of services that are priced at hourly rates. These procedures will be included in each
                            Federal Supply Schedule, as appropriate. They are included in this solicitation for the information
                            of prospective offerors.
                            Procedures for services priced on GSA schedules at hourly rates.
                            FAR 8.402 contemplates that GSA may occasionally find it necessary to establish special ordering
                            procedures for individual Federal Supply Schedules or for some Special Item Numbers (SINs)
                            within a Schedule. GSA has established special ordering procedures for services that are priced
                            on Schedule at hourly rates. These special ordering procedures take precedence over the
                            procedures in FAR 8.404.
                            The GSA has determined that the rates for services contained in the contractor’s price list
                            applicable to this schedule are fair and reasonable. However, the ordering office using this
                            contract is responsible for considering the level of effort and mix of labor proposed to perform



Contract No. GS-10F-0281K                                                                                                      36
                            specific task being ordered and for making a determination that the total firm-fixed price or
                            ceiling price is fair and reasonable.
                            When ordering services, ordering offices shall—
                            I. Prepare a Request for Quotes:
                                   A. A performance-based statement of work that outlines, at a minimum, the work to be
                            performed, location of work, period of performance, deliverable schedule, applicable standards,
                            acceptance criteria, and any special requirements (i.e., security clearances, travel, special
                            knowledge, etc.) should be prepared.
                                     B. A request for quotes should be prepared which includes the performance-based
                            statement of work and requests the contractors to submit either a firm-fixed price or a ceiling
                            price to provide the services outlined in the statement of work. A firm-fixed price order shall be
                            requested, unless the ordering office makes a determination that it is not possible at the time of
                            placing the order to estimate accurately the extent or duration of the work or to anticipate cost
                            with any reasonable degree of confidence. When such a determination is made, a labor hour or
                            time-and-materials quote may be requested. The firm-fixed price shall be based on the hourly
                            rates in the schedule contract and shall consider the mix of labor categories and level of effort
                            required to perform the services described in the statement of work. The firm-fixed price of the
                            order should also include any other incidental costs related to performance of the services
                            ordered. The order may provide for reimbursement of travel costs at the rates provided in the
                            Federal Travel or Joint Travel Regulations, or as a fixed-price incidental item. A ceiling price
                            must be established for labor-hour and time-and-materials orders.
                                    C. The request for quotes may request the contractors, if necessary or appropriate, to
                            submit a project plan for performing the task and information on the contractor’s experience
                            and/or past performance performing similar tasks.
                                      D. The request for quotes shall notify the contractors what basis will be used for
                            selecting the contractor to receive the order. The notice shall include the best value selection
                            criteria including the intended use of past performance factors.
                            II.     Transmit the Request for Quotes to Contractors:

                                     A. Based upon an initial evaluation of catalogs and price lists, the ordering office should
                            identify the contractors that appear to offer the best value (considering the scope of services
                            offered, hourly rates and other factors such as contractors’ locations, as appropriate).

                                   B. The request for quotes should be provided to at least three (3) contractors if the
                            proposed order is estimated to exceed the micro-purchase threshold, but not exceed the
                            maximum order threshold. For proposed orders exceeding the maximum order threshold, the


Contract No. GS-10F-0281K                                                                                                      37
                            request for quotes should be provided to additional contractors that offer services that will meet
                            the agency’s needs. Ordering offices should strive to minimize the contractors’ costs associated
                            with responding to requests for quotes for specific orders. Requests should be tailored to the
                            minimum level necessary for adequate evaluation and selection for order placement. Oral
                            presentations should be considered, whenever practical.
                            III. Evaluate quotes and select the contractor to receive the order:
                            After responses have been evaluated against the factors identified in the request for quotes, the
                            order should be placed with the schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in
                            the lowest overall cost alternative (considering price, special qualifications, administrative costs,
                            etc.) to meet the Government’s needs.
                            The establishment of Federal Supply Schedule Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) for recurring
                            services is permitted when the procedures outlined herein are followed. All BPAs for services
                            must define the services that may be ordered under the BPA, along with delivery or performance
                            time frames, billing procedures, etc. The potential volume of orders under BPAs, regardless of
                            the size of individual orders, may offer the ordering office the opportunity to secure volume
                            discounts. When establishing BPAs ordering offices shall—
                            Inform contractors in the request for quotes (based on the agency’s requirement) if a single BPA
                            or multiple BPAs will be established, and indicate the basis that will be used for selecting the
                            contractors to be awarded the BPAs.
                                     A. SINGLE BPA: Generally, a single BPA should be established when the ordering office
                            can define the tasks to be ordered under the BPA and establish a firm-fixed price or ceiling price
                            for individual tasks or services to be ordered. When this occurs, authorized users may place the
                            order directly under the established BPA when the need for service arises. The schedule
                            contractor that represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative to meet
                            the agency’s needs should be awarded the BPA.
                                     B. MULTIPLE BPAs: When the ordering office determines multiple BPAs are needed to
                            meet its requirements, the ordering office should determine which contractors can meet any
                            technical qualifications before establishing the BPAs. When multiple BPAs are established, the
                            authorized users must follow the procedures in II.B above, and then place the order with the
                            Schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost
                            alternative to meet the agency’s needs.
                            (i) Review BPAs periodically. Such reviews shall be conducted at least annually.
                            The purpose of the review is to determine whether the BPA still represents the
                            best value (considering price, special qualifications, etc.) and results in the lowest
                            overall cost alternative to meet the agency’s needs.



Contract No. GS-10F-0281K                                                                                                      38
                            IV. The ordering office should give preference to small business concerns when two or more
                            contractors can provide the services at the same firm-fixed price or ceiling price.
                            V. When the ordering office’s requirement involves both products as well as professional
                            services, the ordering office should total the prices for the products and the firm-fixed price for
                            the services and select the contractor that represents the greatest value in terms of meeting the
                            agency’s total needs.
                            VI. The ordering office, at a minimum, should document orders by identifying the contractor the
                            services were purchased from, the services purchased, and the amount paid. If other than a
                            firm-fixed price order is placed, such documentation should include the basis for the
                            determination to use a labor-hour or time-and-materials order. For agency requirements in
                            excess of the micro-purchase threshold, the order file should document the evaluation of
                            Schedule contractors’ quotes that formed the basis for the selection of the contractor that
                            received the order and the rationale for any trade-offs made in making the selection.
                            REQUIREMENTS EXCEEDING THE MAXIMUM ORDER
                            (a) In accordance with FAR 8.404, before placing an order that exceeds the maximum order
                                threshold, ordering offices shall--
                                    (1) Review additional schedule contractors’ catalogs/price lists or use the “GSA
                                        Advantage!” on-line shopping service;
                                    (2) Based upon the initial evaluation, generally seek price reductions from the schedule
                                        contractor(s) appearing to provide the best value (considering price and other
                                        factors); and
                                    (3) After price reductions have been sought, place the order with the schedule
                                        contractor that provides the best value and results in the lowest overall cost
                                        alternative (see FAR 8.404(a)). If further price reductions are not offered, an order
                                        may still be placed, if the ordering office determines that it is appropriate.
                            (b) Vendors may:
                                (1) offer a new lower price for this requirement (the Price Reduction clause is not applicable
                                    to orders placed over the Maximum Order in FAR 52.216-19).
                                (2) offer the lowest price available under the contract; or
                                (3) decline the order. Orders must be returned in accordance with FAR 52.216-19.
                            (c) A delivery order that exceeds the maximum order may be placed with the Contractor
                                selected in accordance with FAR 8.404. The order will be placed under the contract.
                            (d) Sales for orders that exceed the Maximum Order shall be reported in accordance with GSAR
                                552.238-72.



Contract No. GS-10F-0281K                                                                                                    39
                            I-FSS-140-B (1/94)
                            URGENT REQUIREMENTS:
                            When the Federal Supply Schedule contract delivery period does not meet the bona fide urgent
                            delivery requirements of an ordering agency, agencies are encouraged, if time permits, to
                            contact the Contractor for the purpose of obtaining accelerated delivery. The Contractor shall
                            reply to the inquiry within 3 workdays after receipt. (Telephonic replies shall be confirmed by the
                            Contractor in writing.) If the Contractor offers an accelerated delivery time acceptable to the
                            ordering agency, any order(s) placed pursuant to the agreed upon accelerated delivery time
                            frame shall be delivered within this shorter delivery time and in accordance with all other terms
                            and conditions of the contract.
                            BLANKET PURCHASE AGREEMENTS (JUN 1996)
                            Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) can reduce costs and save time because individual purchase
                            orders and invoices are not required for each procurement but can instead be documented on a
                            consolidated basis. The Contractor agrees to enter into BPA's with ordering activities provided
                            that:
                            (a) Only items covered by the contract are ordered under such agreements;
                            (b) The period of time covered by such agreements shall not exceed: (1) the period of the
                                contract, or, (2) in the case of multi-year contracts, the fiscal year, unless the ordering
                                activity has authority to obligate funds in excess of the fiscal year;
                            (c) Orders placed under such agreements shall be issued in accordance with all applicable
                                regulations and the terms and conditions of the contract; and
                            (d) BPA's may be established to obtain the maximum discount (lowest net price) available in
                                those schedule contracts containing volume or quantity discount arrangements
                            Federal agencies depend upon General Service Administration (GSA) Distribution Centers (DC)
                            and Customer Supply Centers (CSC) as cost-effective sources of supply. GSA DC's and CSC's are
                            responsible for conveniently providing customer agencies with frequently needed common-use
                            items. One way in which they meet this responsibility is by selling a variety of commercial, high-
                            demand items purchased from FSS multiple award schedule contracts. GSA reserves the right to
                            establish National GSA BPA's with Contractors for EXCLUSIVE USE BY GSA COMMODITY
                            CENTERS to meet the needs of those Federal customers placing orders with GSA DC's and CSC's.
                            GSA also reserves the right to determine which contract items will be the subject of National GSA
                            BPA's.
                            INVOICE REQUIREMENTS
                            Task/delivery orders will be placed against resultant contracts by agencies utilizing this schedule.
