Chapman will be the 19th Airman awarded the Medal of Honor since the Department of the Air Force was established in 1947. He will be the first Airman recognized with the medal for heroic actions occurring after the Vietnam War.

The 8(a) FL Advantage- ParsCo Construction

Posted on by A F

SBA 8(a) Sole Source Benefits To Our Clients

The Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Sole Source vehicle enables government agencies to engage in direct buy contracts with 8(a) certified contractors.

Parsco’s 8(a)  and SBA business development certification is active and valid through 2026.

8a Construction Florida ParsCo

Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act as amended by Congress, created the 8(a) business development program. This program enables SBA to assist small disadvantaged firms to develop their businesses. In applying to the program, a firm is rigorously evaluated on its ownership, operations, financial health, and past performance. Once accepted, the firm is required to provide SBA a detailed business plan and annually show continued success as a viable, strong business entity. Firms that are approved are certified by the SBA for a period of nine years. The SBA has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Federal Agencies allowing them to contract directly with certified 8(a) firms. Participants can receive sole source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4.0 million for goods and services, and $6.5M for manufacturing.

Program Manager Benefits
The 8(a) sole source vehicle provides agencies a simplified and shortened acquisition procedure.

Greatly reduced cycle time: the time required to award an 8(a) sole source contract has been dramatically reduced and can be accomplished in a few weeks.
Lowered administrative costs: procurement process costs associated with a lengthy contracting process are reduced to a minimum.

Best price value: your contracting agency negotiates with ParsCo directly to get the best value.

Your organization receives small business credit for promoting small business participation.

Contracts can be initiated with a simple high level statement of work.
There is no protest process that could delay the start of needed work.

Your organization is assured of getting the company you want, know and trust to conduct the work.

Simple Steps to Establish 8(a) Sole Source Construction Contracts with ParsCo

The Government program manager or interested party develops a statement of work, prepares a government estimate, and obtains the necessary funding.

The Government program manager or interested party chooses ParsCo to perform the work and submits a procurement request to your contracting officer.

The agency contracting officer prepares and submits an “Offer Letter” to ParsCo’s SBA Business Development Specialist, Jay Choi:

Jay W. Choi
Business Opportunity Specialist
North Florida District Office
U.S. Small Business Administration
Office  (904) 443-1968
Fax       (202) 741-6671
jay.choi@sba.gov

SBA processes the Offer Letter and returns it to the agency contracting officer who submits the Statement of Work and Request for Proposal or Quotation to ParsCo.

ParsCo submits the proposal which is evaluated and negotiated (if necessary) by the contracting agency.

The contract is awarded to ParsCo.

On The Job Site: Heat Stress Prevention

Posted on by A F

Heat Stress Prevention

Blair Chapman, Pensacola FL

There are a variety of steps crews can take before heat-related illness strikes on a job site, including:

1. Acclimate slowly: It generally takes five days of working at least 1½ hours per day for the body to become acclimated. Check weather forecasts for heat wave information.

2. Dress for summer. Lightweight, light-colored clothing reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body maintain normal temperatures. Long sleeves and pants are still necessary to protect your body from flying debris and other safety hazards.

3. Wear a hat or sun visor.

4. Eat small meals and salty snacks throughout the day.

5. Drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated fluids. Your body needs fluids to keep cool, and you should drink them even if you don’t feel thirsty. Drink one pint of water every 15 to 20 minutes in extreme heat. Urine should be clear. If it’s dark, you are probably dehydrated.

6. Do not take salt tablets unless specified by a physician.

7. Take frequent breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.

8. Use the buddy system to keep an eye on your co-workers.

9. Some medications can make you more susceptible to heat illnesses. Check with your doctor or pharmacist to find out if any medicine you are taking could affect you while working in the heat.

10. Do the heaviest work during the coolest part of the day. This is usually between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Did you know?

Bottrell Marston Quina Building’s construction dates back to 1901.

Recently, during the design and construction side of the Marston Quina Building, an open concept was installed to accentuate its historic elements. This includes exposed brick, columns and roof joists. Individual offices feature butt-glazed glass walls to allow more natural light to flow into the spaces. The offices also utilize LED lighting for more efficient use of energy and include occupancy sensors so that the lights automatically turn off when the space is not occupied.

Amir Fooladi, president and CEO of the Marston Quina Building’s general contractor ParsCo, said the design offers the unique combination of a historic exterior housing modern, state-of-the-art technology.

In addition to the building, developer One Palafox Place LLC, managed by Bobby Switzer, is also redeveloping the Blount, Brent and Moulton buildings in downtown as part of the mixed-use One Palafox Place.
