10A Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Timeline May 2010 Forest Service tells super- visors it has $2.2 million in stimulus funding for a con- struction project at the Nervino Airport. Project expected to include "a 24-person barracks unit, a fire station with six bays, and a storage building for equipment, as well as a helipad and a parking apron for the helicopters." Supervisor Terry Swofford asked if Forest Service would use as many local people as possible in the construction process. Forest supervisor Alice Carltofl tells board the main contract will go to one of two companies from Reno, Nev., or Yuba City because large contractor is required but, "We expect that they will pick up a lot of local workers, as much as they can." Supervisors approve lease agreement. CONTRACT, from page 1A contracting centers that were set up throughout the country." That was the case with this decision to provide a non-competitive award. At this point in Schramel Taylor's presentation, East- ern Plumas Supervisor Terry Swofford interrupted to make a comment on a sentence in her background material. He pointed to a section indicating Plumas National Forest Supervisor Alice Carlton briefed Swofford in August or September on the fact that an SBA 8a con- tractor would likely be used. "It says that Alice briefed me on this. That never did happen," Swofford argued. "When 'we started this pro- ject, the very first meetings I had with the Forest Service up in Portola was that we would use local contractors and that's why I bought into this: to help local contractors get jobs." After hearin this com- ment, Schramel Taylor apolo- gized,.telling Swofford she was told in a short conversa- tion that he had been in- Need help REPLACING or REPAIRING: DOORS TRIM WINDOWS PLUMBING ROOFING ELECTRICAL if it's sen're, thin we can't fix, we'll find somebody who can. 27 years and countingl During the past 26 years, we are proud to have built more than 70 homes and 100 garages in Plumas County, not to mention the hundreds of remodels, additions and insurance repairs we've done as well. With the change in the economy (specifically, fewer new housing starts), my business partner (and son) Donavon and I knew we had to change our business model. We're not going anywhere, and we still build new homes, garages and commercial buildings. So, in the past year we found there was a real need to assist homeowners in making their existing homes more efficien attractive and valuable. We've helped lots and lots of people with all kinds of projects that might have only taken I 5 minutes to several days or weeks to complete. And, if we couldn't do their job, we'd make sure to connect them with someone who could. It's that kind of service and satisfaction that will help take us through our next 25 years!!!

She said she must have got- ten the wrong information. Swofford added that when Don Bliss of the Forest Service told him about the decision recently, he ex- plained "that decision was made several pay grades above me." "That's nonsense," Swof- ford exclaimed. "Somebody had to know this and this should've been brought out in the beginning." The supervisor wasn't say- ing he'would have rejected the project had he known about the noncompetitive award, "but when this comes up at the last minute, that just -- to me -- gives the Forest Service a black eye. It just makes me angry." Schramel Taylor later left a clarifying phone message at the Feather Publishing office over the weekend following the meeting. She said upon further review she came to the con- clusion it was Swofford, not her, who had been mistaken. She indicated Carlton personally informed Swof- ford Friday, April 9, that the Forest Service would be "in all likelihood going to an 8a contractor award." She said Swofford was informed that decision was made because of the nuances of negotiating a lease with the county, "and the addi- tional design features on the building were going to take too long and the ability to competitively contract would not be there." Essentially she said the decision was made "because of the timing." Government websites on the topic of SBA 8a contract- ing indicate one ,purpose of noncompetitive awards is to avoid a lengthy bid process in some situations. Back at the meeting Quincy Supervisor Lori Simpson said the barracks were removed from the pro- ject because Komada's cost projections for the project were larger than the ForeSt Service's original estimates., Simpson said Carlton recently told her Komada's projections were twice the cost of the origina ! estimate. "I'm all for minorities and disadvantaged people," Simp- son said. "It seems like we're in another time and maybe that could be revisited. "I guess we have to go to the congressional level to get that taken out, right? "We're all on equal ground now I think on bidding for work. Maybe in the past women had problems. "You can see we got a couple of women board members here. We're rising up and taking control." Thrall said all the board could do was send a letter to Komada, "expressing our desire that they work with our local contractors as subs." Schramel Taylor told the board the situation was a re- flection of the way govern- men agencies have become more centralized. She added Plumas com- panies received contracts in other counties in the past, as Plumas National Forest in- cludes parts of Butte, Lassen, Plumas, Sierra and Yuba counties. She also promised to get the name and contact information for the contract- ing officer whomade this decision and give it to the board. Swofford thought the Forest Service could have afforded the barracks if the contract had been put out for bid and awarded locally, Schramel Taylor told him the barracks were on the top of a list for further funding and she was still hopeful they would be included. Simpson said she would write her representatives about her opinion that no-bid contracting wasn't in line with the public's call for the government to be fiscally resPonsible. Contractor Chris Murray of Johnsville told the board this type and size of project was what his group special- ized in. "At no time did I get the impression that there wouldn't be a competitive bid opportunity for people like myself. "I would contend that Su- pervisor Simpson is exactly correct. We could have built the entire facility for less money." He added the Forest Service told him this type of no-bid process was used when there wasn't time to go through the normal process. "Having been tracking this for nine months, I find that very difficult to swallow." Rick Joy, a contractor from P0rtol a, said the county should protest the F.orest Service's action and put specific language about the bid process in future leases. Subcontractors Plumas National Forest Public Affairs Officer Lee Anne Schramel Taylor told county supervisors that Komada plans tobegin out- reach to subcontractors in late winter or early spring, but expects anyone interest- ed would have contacted the company by then. "They intend to purchase fuel, some rental equip- ment, housing and various materials," she added, "as long as the pri.cing is fair and reasonable." The company did prelimi- nary outreach by searching for Plumas County contrac- tors online. Schramel Taylor con- ducted a similar exercise for her own information. In some cases, the number of groups that came up could be counted on one hand. "What that tells me is our businesses are missing some opportunities to market them- selves using the Internet." When Komada did get contact information online and sent an e-mail or made a call, "in many cases they did not receive a response." Komada will use local yel- low pages as well when it be- gan its full-fledged search for resources later in the year. Taylor Schramel suggested contractors go to opportunities/procurement for information about get- ting government projects. ' Plumas Corporation Execu- tive Director John Sheehan said organizations such as Feather River College, where he's a trustee, have used that tactic successfully in the past. Linda Jameson, Plumas District Hospital's chief nursing officer turned interim chief executive officer, said people who assume her dual role must be a burden have it all wrong: She's excited and energized by the challenge.
