Project Description
The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign requests statements of qualifications from Professional Services Consultants interested in providing the Urbana-Champaign campus with Natural Gas Engineer services on a retainer basis.

It is the intent of the University of Illinois to adhere to the aspirational goal delineated in the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Women and Persons with Disabilities Act (BEP Act) 30 ILCS 575 /4f(1)(c) to contract with minority-owned business enterprises (MBE), women-owned business enterprises (WBE), persons with disabilities-owned business enterprises (PBE) for not less than 20% of the total dollar amount of the award(s), and to contract with veteran and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB, SDVOSB) for not less than 3% of the total dollar amount of the award(s).

Selected firms will be awarded an initial one-year agreement (beginning July 1, 2021 and ending June 30, 2022). Each agreement will have the option for one (1) two-year renewal. The total term with the ability to renew will end at June 30, 2024. At each renewal, there will be an opportunity to make adjustments in the scheduled hourly rates.

Natural Gas Engineering Services required under this contract include, but are not limited to: engineering analysis, planning, design, cost control, regulatory compliance, field survey services including leak detection surveys and construction observation, support and administration of the following:
