Procurement of Professional Services
The University of Illinois is currently in the solicitation/interview phase for employing a Professional Services Consultant to execute this design effort. Selection of the successful Professional Services Consultant is expected to be submitted for approval by the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois at their November 2006 Board meeting.
Procurement of Construction Management Services
The selection of the Construction Management (CM) firm will be based on the full range of preconstruction (Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents and Bidding/Award) and Construction period services. Those CM firms chosen to advance to the Proposal Phase will be asked to submit a proposal for preconstruction and construction phase services. If the University of Illinois at Springfield determines that additional services from the CM firm are desirable, the selected firm may be asked to provide a proposal for those additional services at a later date.
The project will be administered using the owner's web-based project management system called PRZM. PRZM was developed to maximize the potential of the Internet in allowing project team members to access and exchange project information. PRZM supports team collaboration in management and interaction, as well as a team member empowerment on a multi-layer security system.
