Prequalification of Bidders for Price-Based Solicitations
The School District of Palm Beach County (“District”) invites proposals from qualified Contractors with current licenses in the State of Florida to register for the District’s Vendor Prequalification Program.
Pursuant to State Requirements for Educational Facilities, Chapter 4, Section 4.1 “Prequalification of Contractors for Educational Facilities Construction”, Prequalification is applicable to Bids (Invitations to Bid), RFP (Request for Proposal), Construction Management at Risk (CMAR), Design/Build and any other Construction Services for a Construction Project with an estimated construction budget of $300,000 or more.
The criteria established for Prequalification is in accordance with Chapter 489, Florida Statutes, (SREF) 2014, School Board 7.08 and all other applicable rules, regulations and procedures.
The Prequalification Program is an ongoing program of the School District. Once a firm has been qualified and certified by the District, it may participate and compete with other qualified vendors in solicitations with all estimated Construction budget of $300,000 or more for a one-year period commencing from date of approval. Prequalification Certifications are valid for one calendar year and may be renewed at each anniversary date. To ensure that the review and approval process is performed continuously and timely, cut-off dates are established. Those applications received after each established cut-off date would be added to a subsequent review and approval meeting.
All Proposals/Statements of Qualification will be reviewed by a Committee comprised of District employees duly assigned to evaluate and recommend those proposals from Contractors to prequalify them to bid or propose on future projects, which may be approved during the Certification Period. Prequalification periods will be for a one (1) year period commencing from the date of School Board approval, and may be renewed for one (1) year periods after the first anniversary of the Certificate, providing the vendor is in good standing with the District. Several firms in each of the Construction disciplines will be certified. Companies that meet all of the established criteria will be provided a Certificate of Prequalification. Once the Prequalification of Firms has been completed, only certified prequalified vendor firms may participate in construction solicitations issued by the School Board of Palm Beach County.
