The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is releasing this “Request for Qualifications for Design-Build Professional Consulting Services” (RFQ) to solicit qualified professional service firms to assist DEC in the completion of a project to divert treated wastewater effluent from the Bay Park Wastewater Treatment Facility to the Cedar Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility within Nassau County.

DEC is seeking to contract with a firm capable of providing engineering services in New York State that has demonstrated experience with “design-build” project delivery. Among the types of engineering services needed are: (1) design quality assurance for water/wastewater infrastructure; (2) construction quality assurance for water/wastewater infrastructure; (3) civil engineering, with a focus on underground utility construction (such as micro-tunneling); (4) mechanical engineering, with a focus on water/wastewater pumping infrastructure; and (5) design-build procurement. Respondents will be scored based upon the qualifications of both the firm and the key personnel, as outlined in the RFQ, pursuant to State Finance Law Section 136-a.

The RFQ may be obtained by emailing DesignBuild@dec.ny.gov and requesting the RFQ. Proposals are due no later than May 31, 2019 at 1:00 PM EST.

On May 7, 2019 at 1:00 PM, DEC will host an optional information meeting for potential respondents to attend, learn about the project, and meet with other interested potential respondents, including M/WBE, DBE and SDVOB firms. The meeting will be held in the Ceremonial Chamber (2nd floor) of the Nassau County Executive Offices located at 1550 Franklin Avenue, Mineola, New York 11501.  Those who wish to attend should RSVP by email to DesignBuild@dec.ny.gov on or before May 3, 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.

Detailed submission guidelines and requirements are outlined in the RFQ available as of April 15, 2019.

Pursuant to the State Finance Law Sections 139-j and 139-k, this RFQ includes and imposes certain restrictions on communications between a Governmental Entity and an Offerer during the procurement process.
