The term of the agreement will be for a minimum period of two years. 

Proposed Scope of Work: The scope of work shall include but be not limited to architectural and/or engineering services to support construction, renovation, additions, and repairs at ADCNR owned facilities and sites. The scope of individual projects will range from below $50,000.00 up to $500,000.00. The services will be compensated using the Building Commission’s fee schedule. The contract will be for a two-year period with an option to renew for up to two additional one-year extensions. Anticipated construction budget for two-year contract period is estimated $1 million to $5 million.

Qualifications:  The design A/E team must include all architectural and engineering disciplines including but not limited to civil, structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, roofing and interior design. The design team shall have experience with full project management from project inception through completion of construction as well as previous experience working with state’s procedures for design and construction projects. All design professionals shall hold current professional licenses and be licensed in the state of Alabama. The design team will be selected on the following qualifications:

1. Demonstrated experience with various construction and renovation projects of similar scope and size.
2. Experience and familiarity with state’s procedures.
3. Ability to provide an experienced multi-disciplinary team.
4. Past performance on state projects including ability to manage design schedules, project budgets, project coordination and construction contract administration for multiple concurrent projects. 5. Availability and location to project sites.

Recognizing the composition of Alabama’s citizenship, the ADCNR encourages proposals from design professionals that represent Alabama firms with diversity in their staffing, proposed project team and associated design professionals and consultants.

All applicable State of Alabama Building Commission documents and procedures, as well as any other applicable requirements from funding sources, shall be utilized on this project. Act 2001-955 requires a disclosure statement to be completed and filed with all proposals, bids, contracts, or grant proposals submitted to the State of Alabama in excess of $5000.

Act 2011-535 (Alabama Immigration Law) imposes conditions on the award of State contracts. Those requirements are effective 1 January 2012 for contracts receiving State funds. Proposers must agree to fully comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, as amended by the Immigration Act of 1990, and the Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act. Architects and Engineers should review and adhere to these guidelines as appropriate to their project type. For additional information on this subject, please refer to the Alabama Building Commission’s bulletins.

Proposals must be received no later than 2:00 PM, May 11, 2018.

This request for qualifications is not an offer to contract but seeks submittals from qualified, professional respondents that may form the basis for the negotiation of a contract or agreement. At least three A/E firms will be selected to interview for this open-end service from those submitting proposals for further and more detailed evaluation and review by a committee of representatives from ADCNR. ADCNR reserves 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.
