  The Adjutant General's Department respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to waive competitive selection in the amount of $96,013.00 from fund 3420, ALI 745616 (Army Natl Guard Service Agrmnt) in FY18, to utilize the STS contract (Contract # 800222-2) with Tetra Tech, Cincinnati, Ohio for the removal and closure of a former injection well located at the the Newark Army National Guard Readiness Center in Licking County.  
  In accordance with new Controlling Board requirements governing the use of State Term Schedules (STS), agencies are required to obtain quotes from at least three vendors or request a waiver request through the Controlling Board. Tetra Tech was initially engaged by the department utilizing the STS contract in July 2015 and again in May 2016 to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments for the Adjutant General's Department of the Newark site. Those assessments recommended that the Class V injection well located on the property be closed and removed in accordance with state environmental regulations. Due to Tetra Tech's extensive knowledge and history regarding this particular site and project, in order to avoid redundant additional costly work that would be required by the selection of a separate vendor, the Adjutant General's Department respectfully requests authority to contract with Tetra Tech for the removal and closure work.

The Army National Guard Facilities Program will contribute all of the funds for this project, $96,013.00 for the buildings being assessed. The Army National Guard Facilities Program provides Federal Funding for operation and minor maintenance in support of the code as listed in the Facility Inventory and Support Plan (FISP). The FISP is a living document that is mutually agreed upon by the Department and the Army National Guard.
