    SCOPE FOR QUALIFICATIONS
    The University of North Texas System (UNTS) subsequently referred to as the Owner, requests firms’ qualifications for
    Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials Testing Services for an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity
    (IDIQ) Contract. The IDIQ Request for Qualifications (RFQ) allows UNTS to pre-qualify firms for specific Professional
    Services. UNTS may select to contract with multiple vendors as a result of the RFQ. In order to assist with new projects,
    UNTS will assess the selected firms as a qualifications basis as necessary for a given project. The selected firms may
    be awarded projects that are managed by either UNTS or any of its component institutions. This is a solicitation for
    Professional Services for a single project or multiple projects over the period of three (3) years with two (2) additional
    one-year option periods. The cumulative total of the fees paid under a contact, including any option years, shall not
    exceed $900,000.
    The firm’s response to the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) will be the basis of determining the qualifications to perform
    the professional services.
    NOTE TO FIRMS WITH CURRENT IDIQ AGREEMENTS WITH UNT SYSTEM: If a firm selected for this IDIQ service
    currently has an IDIQ agreement in place for another service, the current IDIQ will be amended to include the service
    for this IDIQ. However, the Service Order cap and Agreement cap will not be increased. The firm’s new amended
    agreement will only expand the services the firm provides. Once an agreement expires, either because the cap has
    been reached or the time has expired, all services included in the agreement will expire.
    IDIQ Professional Services
    1. Scope of Services
    A. The scope of professional services may also require, but are not limited to:
    Earthwork: Fill and densities
    Concrete: Piers, concrete strength and reinforcing
    Masonry: Prism test, grout mortar, reinforcing and placement monitoring
    Structural steel and joists erection and inspection
    Metal decking
    Paving, concrete, base and soil stabilization
    Soil borings with complete description of soil properties and recommendations for building
    foundation design and paving designs
    Pre- and post-tension inspection
    Other as required by specific project
    An hourly rate schedule will be negotiated for services, by job classification, with firms selected as
    a result of this solicitation. The schedule will include profit and overhead for anticipated services.
    In addition, a maximum surcharge for sub-consultant services will be included in the schedule.
    These prices are to be held for the entire term of the contract, including any extended renewal years.
    No escalation will be considered during the term of the contract. When a qualified firm is selected
    for a project, the firm will be required to provide a proposal for the project based on hourly rate
    schedule costs in the IDIQ contract.
    The Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials Testing firm will be contractually
    obligated to the Owner, and will become a member of the Project Team. The Geotechnical
    Engineering and Construction Materials Testing firm will perform “third party” services to the Owner,
    so no conflict of interest shall exist between the geotechnical Engineering and Construction
    Materials Testing firm and other members of the Project Team.
    ISSUE DATE
    September 18, 2019
    B. Response During Construction/Warranty Periods – Any technical services provider shall respond to
    requests for services within a maximum of twenty-four (24) hours after notice from the Owner (this
    notification may also be delegated to the contractor). Prior scheduling of work should be the goal for
    all of the services; however, the nature of the construction process will necessitate the ability to respond
    quickly and with adequate staff to requests for service within the 24-hour maximum.
    C. At times, the individual service order issued per this contract may also require additional services to
    complete the project such as technical studies and other related professional and technical services.
    D. The Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Materials Testing firm should adhere to the applicable
    campus master plan guidelines and work within the campus design vocabulary. The master plan
    document can be found at https://www.untsystem.edu/service-teams/facilities/campus-master-plans .
