  • On Page 8, Section IV. SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS, Part A states: “Separate each section by labeled tabs and organize in accordance with submittal requirements listed in Section III. Contents.” Section III is the Evaluation Criteria. The intent was to refer to “Section IV. Part B. Contents” on Page 9 and not “Section III. Contents.”.
  • On Page 41, Section VII. SUBMISSION OF BID PROPOSALS, Part A states: Evidence of Certification/Schedule A Affidavit of MBE/WBE. Clarification: Respondents must submit a copy of each proposed MBE and WBE firm’s Letter of Certification fromthe certifying agency. No Schedule A’s are to be submitted with responses to this RFQ. Download Schedules B, C & D here.


  • The chart on page 3 of the RFQ concerning “PBC-PMO Organization” includes a dashed box labeled “PMO Support – Estimating – Scheduling.” This is intended to graphically represent our expectation that, as stated on page 2 (paragraph 5): Negotiations with client agencies will be led by the PBC’s Managing Architect “with schedule, budget and estimating support of the PMO.” In providing this support to the Managing Architect, PMO personnel will NOT be reporting to the Managing Architect. They will continue to report to the Controls Manager who reports to the Program Manager who, in turn, reports directly to the PBC’s Director of Development. All Program Management staff will report through the Program Manager to the PBC as indicated by the Organizational Chart on page 10 of the RFQ. Coordination of support services required by the Managing Architect will be the responsibility of the Director of Development.
  • IV. Submittal Requirements. Part B. 7. Conflict of Interest. This submittal requirement pertains ONLY to the Respondent (inclusive of each firm if Respondent is a Joint Venture). Potential conflicts of subcontractors are not required to be identified at this time however the PBC reserves the right to require that information at any time during the evaluation, selection or negotiation process.
  • On page 1 on Schedule C – Letter of Intent from MBE/WBE, it notes that “the above described services or goods are offered for the following price, with terms of payment as stipulated in the Contract Documents.” Because this procurement process is a Request For Qualifications (RFQ), a response to that section similar to “prices to be determined/pending negotiations” will be acceptable.
