The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water), requests the submittal of Statements of Qualification from qualified firms to provide general contracting services to construct the DC Water Fleet Maintenance Facility.
Detailed information on the scope of work, procurement process and required content of the submittal requirements, and evaluation process are contained in the RFQ document which is available to download from https://www.dcwater.com/procurement. Click on “Old Vendor Portal” and login and download the RFQ (Contract No. 190070) and e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org, the firm’s name and contact information or contact Ms. Senail Manley directly by e-mail – email@example.com, to obtain a more detailed Request for Qualifications statements including a brief scope of work. Request must refer to Contract No. 190070. Qualifications Statements are due Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
This RFQ seeks to pre-qualify general contracting firm(s) to participate in the bid-phase for the construction of the DC Water Fleet Maintenance Facility. The Fleet Maintenance Facility building will be approximately 26,200 SF. The site consists of approximately 6.25 acres, but only about 3.52 acres will be developed as part of this project. Grading of the site will be needed to provide relatively level paved parking and building footprint area. Low retaining walls will be added at portions of the site as required to resolve existing grade differences. Most of the proposed site will be paved with heavy-duty concrete to accommodate the heavier DC Water vehicles.
After review of the statements of qualification received, DC Water will shortlist the most qualified firms in accordance with the evaluation criteria listed in the RFQ. These firms will then be eligible to participate in the bid-phase, expected to be issued in mid-summer 2019.
The contract resulting from the RFQ will be subject to Fair Share Objectives for Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MBE and WBE) in the amounts of 32 percent and 6 percent for the construction component, respectively. The program requirements are fully defined in the U.S. EPA’s Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Procurement Under EPA Financial Assistance Agreements – May 27, 2008.
