Comments:
The individual award estimate for the initial term is $450,000 per retainer contract. The individual award estimate for potential future renewals is $900,000 per retainer contract. These are estimates and are not a guaranteed spend under the proposed award. This award is to a qualified pool of vendors as allowed under 4.2036 (b). Each discipline will be awarded to three firms in order to create a pool of vendors for smaller dollar threshold projects at the University. Each vendor will be awarded a one-year retainer contract, with two one-year renewal options, for an estimated $450,000, per year. This will cover an indefinite amount of projects for the duration of each agreement. Scope and fee negotiation will be on a project needed basis.

The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.

Project Description

Illinois State University is seeking professional engineering services from firms who have experience in university facilities renovations. This advertisement is directed to the architectural and engineering support services needed to complete the design and construction documents for public bidding including construction documents, specifications, bid services and construction administration services. Minimum required services and brief scope of work include: Architectural, Mechanical (HVAC)/Plumbing Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Commissioning Agent, Structural Engineering, and Civil Engineering. It is expected that a single team comprised of these disciplines, at a minimum, will be assembled to provide the referenced services.

ISU will award three teams one year retainer agreements with two one year optional extensions for each discipline for an indefinite amount of projects, if any, for the duration of the agreement. Scope and fee negotiation will be on a per project basis. If agreement is not reached, ISU reserves the right to negotiate with another selected team. Work orders will be issued for each project. Services are focused on projects with design fees from $20,000 to $250,000. Work is not guaranteed to be awarded for the duration of the agreement.

Primes and their consultant services will include the full range of services and not be excluded or limited. The consultant teams identified shall cover all disciplines required for a complete design - bid - build project delivery methodology. Primes will be required to use those members of their team they feel appropriate for the scope of work being requested by ISU. Multiple consultant prime contracts may be awarded to the same project. In those situations, the architect will be responsible to coordinate the other consultants work and the bid set.

Please submit a separate response for each prime you would like to be considered for.

1. Architectural Engineering

2. Mechanical/Plumbing Engineering

*Updated BEP Utilization Information*

A list of University-supplied NIGP commodity codes has been included in Part III of this solicitation's BEP Utilization Plan. Per the Utilization Plan's instructions, vendors who request a waiver from the goal on the basis of good faith efforts must exhaustively contact each vendor certified with the University-supplied commodity codes and document that contact in the Utilization Plan's Good Faith Efforts Contact Log. Waiver requests cannot be granted without exhausting outreach efforts in accordance with the Utilization Plan. For current and official BEP resources go to: https://cms.diversitycompliance.com.

If the list of University-supplied NIGP commodity codes excludes a code that a prospective respondent or BEP-certified vendor believes should be included with the solicitation, additional codes may be requested and must be submitted by the question deadline for this solicitation. These requests should be made through a commodity code addition form supplied by the University buyer assigned to this solicitation. Email the buyer to obtain this form. If requested, additional University-supplied commodity codes may be added to the Utilization Plan by addendum at the University's discretion.

Subcontractors must meet the same requirements as prime contractors to do business with Illinois State University.
