ADVERTISEMENT FOR A/E REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Pursuant to §41-16-72 and §39-2-2(d) of the Code of Alabama, as amended, on behalf of the Governor of Alabama and the Alabama Department of Corrections, the Alabama Department of Finance-Division of Construction Management is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Project Management Services for Statewide Prison Construction in relation to the construction of new prison facilities; renovation and/or rehabilitation of existing prison facilities; and/or renovation, rehabilitation, or construction of mental health treatment facilities at existing prison facilities as may be required based on settlement of existing litigation.
Project Management Team
The Alabama Department of Corrections will provide all employees with safe, secure facilities that meet the constitutional standard of care and rehabilitative needs of offenders.
Pursuant to §39-2-2(d), the Project Management Team that is engaged as a result of this RFQ shall be strictly prohibited from participation in any multi-prime or other construction-related services on any project associated with or developed under this project management contract and shall not engage in any actual construction, repair, renovation or maintenance with their own forces, by contract, subcontract, purchase order, lease or otherwise.
The Project Management Team will work with the ADOC and the DCM. The Project Management Team will be acting on behalf of the Governor and the ADOC to develop a long-term solution to the problems associated with aging prison facilities and infrastructure statewide. The process must be interactive and will require consistent, effective communication between the Project Management Team and the Owner’s team.
Submittal Requirements: Refer to full version of RFQ.
Evaluation Criteria: Refer to full version of RFQ.
Project Management Teams are strongly encouraged to include Alabama-based firms. Construction managers are required to be licensed in Alabama as a general contractor in the appropriate major classification and with sufficient bid limit equal to the value of the project. Design professionals including architects, engineers, and surveyors are required to be registered in the State of Alabama in order to represent themselves as such in any proposal. Preference will be given to companies based in Alabama.
Recognizing the composition of Alabama’s citizenship, the Alabama Department of Corrections encourages submissions from design professionals that represent Alabama firms with diversity in their staffing and proposed project team, including but not limited to, associated design professionals and consultants.
This request for qualifications is not an offer to contract, but seeks the submission of qualifications from qualified, professional respondents that may form the basis for the negotiation of a contract or agreement. Firms will be selected from those submitting qualifications for further and more detailed evaluation and review by a selection committee. The ADOC and the DCM reserve the right to reject any or all proposals and to solicit additional proposals, through the RFQ process, if that is determined to be in the best interests of the State of Alabama.
Qualifications submittals must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. (Central Time) on Monday, December 4, 2017.
Submittals shall include eight (8) hard copies of the submittal response and one (1) electronic .pdf file of the complete response on CD or flash drive. Responses shall be submitted to:
