DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR THE BAY PARK CONVEYANCE PROJECT
NYSDEC CONTRACT NO. C011506

https://www.nyscr.ny.gov/business/adsPubView.cfm?ID=884A38F5-71F7-490F-B402-5D0003B176E4

THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION (NYSDEC) WILL ISSUE A REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ) TO OBTAIN A STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS (SOQ) FROM FIRMS INTERESTED IN PROVIDING DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR THE BAY PARK CONVEYANCE PROJECT (PROJECT) LOCATED IN NASSAU COUNTY, NEW YORK.

The goal of this Project is to convey treated Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) water from the current discharge point in Reynolds Channel to the existing ocean outfall at the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP). This Project would require a force main to be constructed, in three segments, to connect the Bay Park STP and the Cedar Creek WPCP. One force main segment would be constructed by sliplining an approximately 8-mile-long portion of an existing, unused 72-inch aqueduct underneath Sunrise Highway. The two other force main segments would be new construction, would be approximately 2 miles and 1.5 miles in length, would have a diameter of about 72 inches, and would likely be constructed using microtunneling technology, which would require jacking and receiving shafts. Additionally, a dedicated pump station at the Bay Park STP and a receiving connection at the Cedar Creek WPCP would be required along with all related control systems and appurtenances. The Project will consist of work at three major locations: the Bay Park STP, the Cedar Creek WPCP and the force main routes connecting the facilities.

A Best Value selection process will be used that will have two steps. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is anticipated to be issued in Fall 2019. Responses to the RFQ will be evaluated to establish a short-list of design-build firms that will be invited to submit proposals in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP), scheduled to be issued in Winter 2019-2020. The “Best Value” selection process will evaluate the ability of the design-builder to manage the design-build process and design, construct and control the Project to provide a quality product, on or ahead of schedule, for a reasonable cost within the Project budget.

The RFQ will establish the pre-qualification process for the firms seeking to be shortlisted as proposers and will provide full details of the Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) required from interested firms.

The NYSDEC reserves the sole right, without incurring any liability, to change any aspect of the proposed procurement described above, including the right to not proceed with the procurement and/or the right to proceed in a different manner or on a different timeline than as described above.

Availability of the RFQ and RFP documents and amendments related to this project procurement will be noticed in the New York State Contract Reporter.

Companies interested in providing design-build services or participating as a member of a design-build organization should send a Letter of Interest (LOI) by email to: DesignBuild@dec.ny.gov< /a>.

The LOI must state the company name and provide the name, address, phone, email, and fax numbers of the person(s) whom the NYSDEC may contact at your company to provide further information about the Project.

Those interested in participating in the design-build procurement are invited to send a representative(s) to a Project information workshop at 1:00 PM on August 21, 2019 at the Nassau County Executive’s Office at 1550 Franklin Avenue, Mineola, NY 11501 in the Ceremonial Chamber on the second floor. Those who wish to attend should RSVP by email to DesignBuild@dec.ny.gov on or before August 16, 2019, with their contact information and firm name. RSVP is highly recommended as the event location and time is subject to change. Please advise when RSVP’ing if a reasonable accommodation is required.

While submission of an LOI and attendance at the Project information workshop are not prerequisites for participating in the design-build procurement process, interested firms and parties are strongly encouraged to submit and attend.
