1.2 Background and Services Period

Wayne RESA (WRESA), in collaboration with the Michigan Association of Counties (MAC) CoPro+ Program, is initiating a competitive bidding process to award optional use master agreements to contractors for the provision of Wayne RESA General Contracting and Individual Skilled Trades Services. This Request for Proposals (RFP) is designed to identify vendors who can offer comprehensive general contracting services and also those who specialize in individual skilled trades. We seek to establish optional use master agreements with a select number of providers in any or all of the seven (7) General Service Categories detailed in this RFP, be it across multiple categories or in specific trades such as painting, electrical, etc.

The resulting agreements will provide a framework for potential future engagements that will be outlined in a second tier process. It is important to note that the utilization of these agreements will depend on the specific needs and projects of WRESA and CoPro+ public entities. This initiative aims at streamlining the process for WRESA to engage with the awarded contractors swiftly and efficiently whenever the need for general contracting and individual skilled trades arises.

The objectives of this tiered contracting approach include, but are not limited to:

1. Consistent Contract Terms:

Establishing a uniform contract term to foster clear understanding and agreement between WRESA, CoPro+ public entities, and service providers awarded master agreements.

2. Consistent Selection Criteria and Processes:

Implementing standardized selection criteria and screening processes to ensure the contract holders are comprised of reputable and competent service providers.

3. Single Point of Contact for Contractors:

Designating a single point of contact within WRESA for service provides to ensure coordinated communication and effective engagement.

4. Consistent Billing Practices:

Adopting uniform billing practices for clarity, accuracy, and ease of processing for both WRESA, CoPro+ public entities, and the awarded service providers.

Services will be as needed for the time period from March 20, 2024, through March 19, 2027. At the end of the initial term, this Agreement will be evaluated. If the parties agree that it is a mutually beneficial relationship, the Agreement includes two options years and may be extended in writing for up to two (2) additional years in one (1) year increments.

1.3 Requirements and Specifications

The following are the service categories for which vendors may seek master agreements through this RFP:

1. Construction and Renovation:

• This includes general construction, demolition, and renovation services, covering a broad range of activities necessary to complete a project.

2. Painting and Finishing:

3. Electrical and Lighting:

• All electrical system installations, maintenance, and lighting solutions.

4. Carpentry and Woodworking:

5. Flooring and Tiling:

1.3.1 Service Category Questions

The Proposer shall complete the questionnaire in Attachment B – Service Category Qualifications for each Service Category they seek to provide services for, to demonstrate their experiences and qualifications providing those services.

1.3.2 Comprehensive List of Assumptions

Rather than have assumptions be scattered throughout the proposal, Wayne RESA requires that all assumptions be listed and explained in this section. Please ensure that all assumptions listed reference the appropriate section of the RFP and/or associated services. Please indicate “N/A”, if this does not apply to your proposal.

Proposer Response:

1.3.3 Two-Tier Contracting Process

This two-tier contracting process for specific engagements will be as follows:

Tier One: The primary goal of this tier is to establish multiple optional use contracts with vendors by Service Categories based on an evaluation of their capabilities, experience, staffing and pricing. The Tier One vendors will be selected through this RFP process. The rates submitted during this tier will serve as a not to exceed rate card for each contractor, setting the maximum hourly rates that can be charged for services in the subsequent tier. It's important to note that the rate cards submitted are not assumed to include prevailing wage or Davis Bacon Act rates; however, adjustments to the rates can be made in Tier Two if a project requires adherence to these wage standards.

Tier Two: Upon the establishment of master agreements, WRESA reserves the right to engage with one or more contractors awarded Tier One agreements to solicit Statements of Work (SOWs) for specific projects with specific scope outlined. The Tier Two request may be directed to a single vendor or multiple vendors within the relevant service category, depending on the project needs and at the discretion of the requesting entity.

Vendors shall leverage their rate card from Tier One to propose a firm fixed price for the project outlined in the SOW (See Attachment D for a sample). While the proposed pricing cannot exceed the rates set in Tier One, vendors have the latitude to offer lower pricing based on the specifics of the SOW. An exception to this rule is when the SOW requires adherence to prevailing wage or Davis Bacon Act rates, in which case the rates may be adjusted accordingly.

This two-tier approach provides flexibility to WRESA in selecting vendors while promoting competitive pricing and adherence to quality standards. It is the discretion of WRESA and Coop Members to determine whether to solicit a single vendor or multiple vendors for SOWs in Tier Two, aligning with the overarching goal of achieving favorable pricing and high-quality service delivery for each project.

WRESA reserves the right to limit the number of vendors awarded master agreements during the RFP evaluation process to align with specific service needs and project requirements. Additionally, we retain the discretion to open up the process to award additional master agreements as needed, and add additional service categories to existing and new contracts.

WRESA will utilize other contracting vehicles or issue separate RFPs for specific services or projects at their discretion. This approach ensures we have the flexibility to meet diverse contracting needs and are not exclusively bound to use the master agreements established by this RFP.

Proposer Response: Please confirm your understanding by checking Yes or No.

☐ Yes ☐ No

1.3.2 Statewide Cooperative Contract

Wayne RESA is working with the Michigan Association of Counties CoPro+ program on this bid solicitation.  If your bid meets the minimum qualifications, is responsive and responsible and offers competitive pricing you may be considered and approached to extend a term agreement and pricing to other public entities within the county, the region, and the state, in accordance with Michigan Compiled Laws 124.504.  This process is called “piggybacking”; it offers tremendous value to public ordering entities regarding the cost and time to manage an end-to-end purchasing event.  This process also offers exceptional value to selected vendors in terms of their company’s resources and time to respond to multiple solicitations from various public entities who have a similar need for their products or services.

All pricing submitted to Wayne RESA and its participating entities shall include a 2% administrative fee to be remitted to CoPro+ by the contractor on a quarterly basis. Administrative fees will be paid against actual sales volume for each quarter. It is the contractor’s responsibility to keep all pricing up to date and on file with Wayne RESA/CoPro+.
