Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) intends to issue approximately three contracts for general construction projects at the Edwardsville, Alton, and East St Louis campuses. The maximum possible annual value of each contract is planned to be $500,000, with a total possible duration of five years. The price for individual projects to be accomplished through these contracts will be under the State of Illinois small purchase limit for construction (currently $76,600). Given the potential long-term nature of these contracts and the varying type of work possible on critical University buildings and infrastructure, contractors who wish to submit a bid are required to prequalify to participate in the solicitation. This solicitation-specific prequalification is in addition to the existing SIUE Purchasing prequalification statement. The solicitation bid package will be available later in October.
Construction projects involving buildings, utility systems, and other structures, including one or more of the divisions of work as defined by the Construction Specifications Institute MasterFormat. The University or a University-authorized architect-engineer firm will develop a scope of work, solicit one or more quotes from the contractors awarded these contracts, and then the University will issue a fixed-price order with a specific completion date for each project.
In order to prequalify for the SIUE Multi-Year Construction contracts, contractors shall submit their experience in accomplishing three to five general construction projects each with an amount between $10,000 and $100,000, all for a single owner or client over a period of up to 5 years. Ongoing projects may be included if currently over 90% complete as determined by total payments received divided by current project amount. Although not required for a single project, the projects taken together must demonstrate experience with three or more of the following divisions of construction work as defined by the Construction Specifications Institute MasterFormat: Concrete; Masonry; Metals; Wood, Plastics, & Composites; Openings; Finishes; Plumbing; Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning; Electrical; and Utilities. Work accomplished by subcontracts may be included.
The attached Construction Experience Data Sheet must be used to submit multi-year, multiple general construction project experience information with up to three different owners or clients. The length of the Data Sheet shall not exceed two pages for each owner or client. Information submitted in addition to the attached Data Sheet, and submitted in excess of the maximum of three clients or owners, will not be considered.
For all submitted contracts, the description shall clearly state the overall scope of work accomplished under each project, the divisions of work self-performed by the contractor, and the divisions of work subcontracted. The experience of an affiliate, subsidiary, parent, or similarly related company of a different name shall not be considered as prequalifying experience.
Qualification of the contractor will be determined based on the demonstrated accomplishment of multiple general construction projects for a single owner or client over a multi-year period with satisfactory performance as described by the owners or clients involved with the projects, who may be contacted by the University.
The University may seek and use contractor experience and performance information from other sources and projects in addition to that submitted by the contractor.
