10 Largest Upcoming NAVFAC MILCON Opportunities in 2016

10 Largest Upcoming NAVFAC MILCON Opportunities in 2016

The NAVFAC MILCON budget for fiscal year 2016 was around $1.67 billion, approximately half a billion more than 2015, financing 60 military construction projects. After preparing a report on MILCON opportunities for one of our clients, I thought I should share my findings on the top 10 largest NAVFAC MILCON opportunities scheduled to be advertised during the rest of 2016. Below is the list of the top 10, based on the overall value:

1. Live-Fire Training Range Complex (NW Field) – $125,677,000

This is a design build stand-alone contract in Guam at Anderson Base to build a live-fire training range complex. It is scheduled to be advertised in late June/July, and awarded in December 2016. This will be a two-step best value source selection process.

This is a design-bid-build stand-alone contract for MCB Camp Pendleton, CA, to the raw water pipeline between Pendleton to Fallbrook. It was scheduled to be advertised in May (but has not yet been advertised), and awarded in September 2016. This is one-step best value source selection process.

10. LCS Support Facility – $37,366,000

This is a design- build stand-alone contract for the Naval Base Facility at San Diego, CA, to build the LCS Support Facility there. It was scheduled to be advertised in May (but has not yet been advertised), and awarded in August 2016. This is two-step best value source selection process.

As all of the above opportunities, except one, go through a best value source selection process, participating firms need to have capable proposal writing teams to be able to compete and win these contracts. I suggest reaching out for outside proposal support even if you have capable in-house teams to ensure the highest win probability.
