The current need for professional service consultants is to provide support for both small and large-scale projects including major maintenance, emergency, remodel/renovation, technology, and building system improvement projects. The scale, duration, and number of the projects is uncertain, and the District may or may not have a need for all services during the year.
It is the intent of the District to contract with firms for specific disciplines in categories A through V, as listed below, and to match the capacity and capability of the firm’s qualifications and available staff with the scope, size, and complexity of the work.
All submittals will be categorized and kept on file for 12-months from the due date. The District shall conduct discussions with one or more firms regarding anticipated concepts, staffing, and the relative utility of alternative methods of approach for furnishing the required services and then shall select therefrom, based upon criteria established by the district through a Request for Statement of Qualifications process. The firm deemed to be the most highly qualified to provide the said service will be contracted. The project assignments will likely remain in place for the duration of the specific project.
Successful applicants must comply with Washington State’s RCW 28A.400.303 - Record Checks for Employees and Certain Volunteers and Contractors, and the District’s indemnification and insurance requirements including General Liability, Automobile Liability, and Professional Liability insurance.
