The magnitude of construction for the above referenced project is between $1,000,000.00 and $5,000,000.00. The Construction Period services are expected to begin following the issuance of the Construction Notice To Proceed. It is anticipated that a Firm Fixed Price Contract will be awarded to the A/E Firm selected for the aforementioned design services. The most highly qualified A/E Firm will be required to participate in a Preproposal Conference prior to the submission of price proposals. Any cost associated with the participation in the Preproposal Conference is not reimbursable. Contract award is subject to the availability of funds for FY 2019. Please note this is not a request for proposal. Eligible responses received will be evaluated and the most highly qualified will be compiled on a shortlist of candidates who will be contacted for an interview. The following evaluation criteria, listed in descending order of importance, shall be used to evaluate firms and determine the most highly qualified firm for possible contract award. The Professional Qualification and Specialized Experience/Technical Competence (i.e., Evaluation Factors #1 & #2) factors are slightly more important than the other six factors (i.e. Evaluation Factors #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 and #8). 1. Professional Qualifications necessary for satisfactory performance of required services: This factor evaluates the individual experience of the persons that are to be assigned to the design team. The firms should provide information on the individuals from each relative discipline that are anticipated to be assigned to key positions on the design team. The key positions should include Project Managers, Quality Assurance Managers, Architect, Plumbing Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Structural Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Fire Protection Engineers, Interior Designer, Telecommunications/Data Engineers, Estimator, Environmental Engineers and strong familiarity in sustainable design and energy efficiency. 2. Specialized Experience and Technical Competence in the type of work required: This factor evaluates the experience of the firm and design team in completing projects requiring skills similar to those anticipated for this contract. This project will move Audiology from the first floor to the third floor of Building 1. The space to be renovated is approximately 771 gross square feet. Old Eye Clinic space (ACS Specialty Care) will be renovated. The Eye Clinic will be moved to another area on the third floor as a result of another project currently in construction. Audiology will be moved so that Pharmacy can move into that space and space vacated under a previously constructed project by Yellow Primary Care Team. Pharmacy is to be moved by this project and completely renovated. Approximately 6,000 square feet will be renovated for Pharmacy. Audiology and Pharmacy serve womens veterans and therefore provides for womens health. Accordingly, the "Womens Health" box was checked below under the heading of "Strategic Priorities". Extra consideration may be given for experience designing projects for Department of Veterans Affairs Facilities. The intent of this project is to provide the Government with constructible documents detailing how to accomplish the above. Firms may submit any other personnel they feel are significant for the types of work described in Specialized Experience. 3. Past Performance on Contracts with Government Agencies (particularly Department of Veterans Affairs) and Private Industry in Terms of Cost Control, Quality of Work, and Compliance with Performance Schedules: This factor shall be evaluated based on the information provided by the A-E on similar type projects, performance appraisals on file with the Department of Veterans Affairs, any Government sponsored performance rating system and contact with personnel listed in the SF 330 regarding past performance as well board members personal knowledge of the firm. 4.

Location in General Geographical Area of the Project and Knowledge of the Locality of the Project: This factor evaluates the distance from the A-E firms design office from the location of work (James E. Van Zandt VA Medical Center), and knowledge of the geographic area. The personnel identified as the key design team staff are expected to work in the design office identified for evaluation of this factor. 6.
