subcontractor or as a subconsultant to the construction manager.
NOTE: Interested parties are advised that pursuant to N.J.A.C. 19:36-3.5 (“Conflicts of Interest”) a professional
consultant, firm or individual, that has assisted the NJSDA by materially participating in preparation of an RFQ or
RFP for a design-build procurement shall not be permitted to participate in that procurement as a member of a
Design-Build Team. “Materially participating in the preparation of an RFQ or RFP” shall mean the preparation of
the RFQ or RFP themselves, as well as the preparation of plans, specifications, reports or other documents that are
produced with the intent to be incorporated into a Project Manual or Design-Build Information Package that is part
of that RFQ or RFP.
Procurement Overview:
The first step in the procurement process requires the Bidder to submit a Project Rating Proposal, which results in
the establishment of a Project Rating Limit for the Bidder. A Bidder may not submit a Price Proposal for the Project
that, excluding the GMP Reserve and amounts designated as design fees for the Project, exceeds its Project Rating
Limit.
The second step of the procurement process requires the Bidder to simultaneously submit:
1. “Experience Criteria” portion of Technical Proposal submitted as one (1) unbound original, and four (4)
bound copies of each of the following three forms, submitted separately from the rest of the Technical
Proposal (may be submitted together in one envelope or in individual envelopes, separate from the
rest of Technical Proposal):
a. Design-Builder’s Experience on Similarly Sophisticated Projects;
b. Design-Builder’s Design Consultant’s Experience on Similarly Sophisticated Projects; and
c. Design-Builder’s Demonstrated Prior Affirmative Action Experience.
2. “Project Approach Criteria” portion of Technical Proposal submitted as one (1) unbound original of all
other materials comprising the Technical Proposal and seven (7) bound copies, which provides
information required by the RFP, including: Identification and Qualifications of Required Key Team
Members; the Design-Builder’s Approach to Schedule; the Design-Builder’s Approach to the Project;
and the Design-Builder’s Approach to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (“LEED)
Requirements; as well as other information.
3. A sealed Price Proposal, which states the Bidder’s fixed, lump-sum Contract Price for the Project, which
will form the basis for the Guaranteed Maximum Price for the Project.
In the evaluation step, the Bidder’s “Experience Criteria” submission will be reviewed on a non-numeric, yes/no
basis by an Evaluation Committee dedicated to the review of the Experience Criteria.
The “Project Approach Criteria” portion of the Technical Proposals will be reviewed and analyzed by a Selection
Committee comprised of no fewer than four (4) individuals representing the NJSDA and the School District, charged
with evaluating the Technical Proposals and conducting interviews with the Bidders and their Design Consultants
for the clarification and amplification of the information contained in the Technical Proposals, before scoring the
Technical Proposals with reference to the following non-price evaluation factors:
1. Design-Builder’s Approach to Project (30 points)
2. Identification and Qualifications of Required Key Team Members (35 points)
3. Design-Builder’s Approach to Schedule (20 points)
4. Design-Builder’s Approach to LEED Requirements (15 points)
The Price Proposals will remain sealed until the interviews are completed and the Project Approach Criteria of the
Technical Proposals have been fully evaluated and scored. The scores for the Project Approach portion of the
Technical Proposals will be revealed at the public bid opening at which the Price Proposals are opened. The Price
Proposals will then be scored by the NJSDA’s Procurement Division at the public meeting in accordance with the
terms of the RFP. The scores for the Project Approach evaluation factors will be combined with the scores for the
Price Proposals, and the Bidder with the highest combined score will be deemed the winning Bidder with the
proposal most advantageous to the NJSDA, price and other factors considered, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:18A-243 and
N.J.A.C. 19:36-1 et seq.
Price shall be considered more important than all other factors combined, with price representing 60% of the
weighted scoring and all other factors representing 40% of weighted scoring. The NJSDA is under no obligation to
accept the lowest price proposal, as evaluation and scoring of proposals shall be in accordance with the terms of
the RFP and regulations at N.J.A.C. 19:36-1 et seq.
The NJSDA has no obligation to make an award and reserves the right to waive any non-material defects, reject any
or all proposals for any reason in accordance with law, and/or terminate the selection process at any time.
