Introduction

Scope of Work – Preliminary/Contract Design of Ranger IV
1.0
Isle Royale National Park operates the motor vessel Ranger III between Houghton, MI and Isle Royale.
The Ranger III is the largest moving piece of equipment owned and operated by National Park Service
and is the largest passenger ferry providing service to and from ISRO. There are many amenities on
board during its five-hour voyage, including interpretive and educational programs, food sales, three
staterooms, four lounges, two decks, and indoor and outdoor passenger seating. In addition to
passengers, the Ranger III also transports fuel, food, small powerboats, and other bulk cargo to Isle
Royale.

The Ranger III was constructed in 1958 and is nearing the end of its useful life. The Volpe Center,
working with the National Park Service, is developing a Preliminary/Contract Design for a replacement
vessel, Ranger IV. This Statement of Work defines the effort required for the Preliminary/Contract
Design for the Ranger IV.

Requirements
The Contractor shall provide all labor, materials, and resources necessary to perform the following tasks.

Preliminary/Contract Design of Ranger IV
The Contractor shall perform the Preliminary/Contract Design for the Ranger IV, including engineering
analyses, tradeoff studies, model testing, and engineering and design documentation (including
drawings, reports, calculations, and classification society approvals) required as part of preliminary and
contract designs. The vessel will be designed as both a passenger and cargo vessel, be designed to ABS
class, and SOLAS and other USCG requirements. To the maximum extent practicable, the design shall
incorporate commercial available equipment and technologies. The contract design shall include
bidding specifications and a cost estimate for the design and construction of the Ranger IV. Additionally,
the Contractor shall review and verify current dock layouts and equipment and recommend changes to
shoreside infrastructure to accommodate a future Ranger IV.

The design shall incorporate the requirements, design goals, and features specified in the Basis of Design
to the maximum extent possible. The Contractor shall inform the Government as soon as possible if,
during the design cycle, not all requirements, goals, and features can be incorporated due to vessel size
or other limitations, and shall provide recommendations as to trade-offs for inclusion.

The Contractor shall provide the management effort necessary to ensure the on-schedule completion of
the Preliminary/Contract Design. The Contractor shall identify and take steps to correct all problems
and potential problems arising during contract performance.

Data shall be prepared in accordance with this Contract and the Basis of Design. All deliverables
(including specifications, drawings, design data, hull geometry file, and technical information developed
by the Contactor) shall become the property of the United States Government. The data shall be
provided to the United States Government without restrictions for use by the government or release by
the government to others.

Additional details will be provided when the solicitation is released.
