Construction – DeCA solicits and awards contracts for the construction of new stores, additions and alterations to existing stores, refrigeration replacement and upgrades and architectural upgrades.
Most of these projects are contracted for by issuing Task Orders on existing Indefinite Delivery Contracts (IDC). These IDC's were awarded using Best Value Competitive processes and generally each Task order is competed between the holders of those contracts. Occasionally DeCA will issue stand-alone solicitations which use a LPTA selection process for selecting the contractor.
Architectural – Engineering Services (A-E) - DeCA contracts for site surveys, testing and design services for new stores and upgrades along with energy and environmental support. This work is contracted for by issuing Task Orders on existing Indefinite Delivery Contracts(IDC). These basic contracts were established using A-E selection procedures and individual Task Orders are negotiated and issued with the A-E firm who can best provide the services required.
Facility Maintenance for DeCA's stores located in the CONUS, Alaska, Hawaii, and Guam are executed under eight GSA task orders.
