    Virtual Pre-Bid Conference for a Request for Qualifications for Design Services for Central Valley Stations and Small Business Workshop

    Thursday, May 12, 2022
    Zoom Webinar (space is limited)

    The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to procure an architectural and engineering contract for design services for Central Valley Stations, including Bakersfield, Kings/Tulare, Fresno, and Merced.

    The contract’s scope of work will be awarded, segmented and delivered in two Notices to Proceed (NTP). NTP 1 will include design of the stations to Configuration Footprint level. If the NTP 2 option is issued, at the Authority’s sole discretion, it will include development of the design to 100% construction and ready to bid documents as well as bidding, construction administration and commissioning support services. The Authority will evaluate each offeror’s Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) for qualifications to perform the entire scope of work, which includes the NTP 2 option.

    Please join representatives from the Authority at this virtual pre-bid conference to learn more about the requirements of the procurement and the importance of small business participation.

    Additionally, the Authority’s Small Business team will be hosting an informational workshop following the pre-bid (see schedule below). The purpose of the workshop is to provide a detailed overview of the Small Business Program, small business compliance, and information on the certifications that count toward the Authority’s small business goals. The event will also include a certification workshop with the Department of General Services (DGS) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) followed by a Q & A session.

    Attendance at this virtual pre-bid conference or small business workshop is not a prerequisite to submitting a Statement of Qualifications.
