Page 1 of 1 INTRODUCTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Program Contracting Activity Central (PCAC) anticipates soliciting proposals and subsequently awarding a single, Firm-Fixed-Price contract for the EHRM Infrastructure Upgrades Construction project at the Leavenworth VA Medical Center (VAMC) located at 4101 S. 4th St., Leavenworth, KS 66048. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: To prepare the VA campus for Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM) Upgrades, main campus of Leavenworth VA Medical Campus will require a near-complete re-cabling of the main hospital and associated buildings. This project will include all materials and labor to replace all telecommunications cable, outlets, and associated equipment for buildings in this project at the VA Medical Campus. Multiple buildings on campus include Buildings 90, 91, 21/94, 160, 161, 88/89, 122, 41, 71, 39, 42, 54, 153 and the site. Un-terminated "future capacity" cables are not permitted. All installed cables shall be terminated at each end and documentation, labeling, and (where applicable) test results provided. This applies to all permanently installed cable types. Intra-building fiber will be smoke-rated OM4 and all inter-building fiber will be OS-2 single-jacket non-armored fiber. In addition to replacing all of the communications cabling, an additional 15% capacity shall be provided as shown on the drawings and specifications. All Copper replacement will be CAT 6A. Any conduit used will be marked appropriately with low-voltage/data at regular intervals to be visible in interstitial spaces with minimal effort. Existing conduit drops in-wall shall be retained and reused; contractor shall not exceed conduit fill percentage code requirements with the new cable drops. Contractor is to ensure that no conduit exceeds 40% fill. If existing conduit is not large enough to support new CAT 6A cable to replace all existing circuits one-for-one, contractor shall provide the maximum allowable new CAT 6A circuits to replace existing. The additional new circuits to complete the one-for-one replacement shall be provided at the nearest available drop with existing conduit capacity. The majority of existing conduit is 1 1 4 and will allow 6 drops of CAT6A cable within the 40% maximum fill limitation. Existing conduit that is 1 or 3 4 will accept maximum (4) and (2) CAT6A cables, respectively. CAT6A cabling installed for end user devices (terminated at wall plates) will follow the red/blue/yellow standards as outlined in Specification 27 15 00. The facility has a required 1 Gbe connectivity to desktops, and other EUD, and this will include the replacement of wall jacks at EUDs to become CAT6A compliant. All in-building copper cabling will be terminated and labeled in accordance with the drawings and specifications and will be terminated to CAT6A modular jacks capable of accepting and functioning with other modular (i.e.: RJ11) plugs without damage to the jack. Aqua jacket CAT 6A color coding shall be provided for all patch cables and all primary cable to each EUD. Face plates shall be 6-port style and Ivory in color. For every TR in the SOW, Contractor shall provide and install new patch panels conforming to EIA/ECA 310-3 dimensions and suitable for mounting in standard equipment racks, with 48 RJ45 jacks aligned in two horizontal rows per patch panel and labeled in accordance with the drawings and specifications. Contractor shall also supply and label all new CAT6A patch cables for every device in the telecom room, (NOT at the end user device) to be sized and labeled appropriately in accordance with 27 15 00. Each TR shall also be provided with new four-post racks with minimum 40% spare capacity for future expansion. All racks and patch panels will be labeled in accordance with the Drawings and Specification 27 15 00. Contractor shall provide and install and utilize a series of welded cabling support structures ( ladder racks ) around the perimeter of the telecom room to support the weight of the cable. No wireless access points will be replaced and will be protected-in-place, only the cabling will be replaced. All cabling for wireless access points will be labeled in accordance with the specifications and shall be purple in color. This replacement process will require a temporarily located rack adjacent to the existing rack. Contractor shall replace existing circuits one-for-one and locate on new patch panels on the new rack and provide interim longer-length patch cables to existing devices/switches. Existing equipment to remain will then be relocated to the new rack and the new rack shall be mounted in its final permanent location. All existing Cat 3 phone cable devices and terminations shall remain operational at all times and shall be retained and reused. Protect in place in existing location. The project scope also includes the addition of new Computer Room Air-Conditioning split systems with temperature and humidity monitoring as well as the addition of new dedicated electrical panels and circuits and emergency power back-up generators. A new 600 Ton water cooled chiller and pump will be provided in B161 to serve the new TRs.
