By establishing contractor`s qualification and experience in advance, NYC DPR will have a pool of competent contractors from which it can draw to promptly and effectively reconstruct and construct its parks, playgrounds, beaches, gardens and green-streets. NYC DPR will select contractors from the General Construction PQL for non-complex general construction site work of up to $3,000,000.00 per contract, through the use of a Competitive Sealed Bid solicited from the PQL generated from this RFQ.
The vendors selected for inclusion in the General Construction PQL will be invited to participate in the NYC Construction Mentorship. NYC Construction Mentorship focuses on increasing the use of small NYC contracts, and winning larger contracts with larger values. Firms participating in NYC Construction Mentorship will have the opportunity to take management classes and receive on-the-job training provided by a construction management firm.
NYC DPR will only consider applications for this General Construction PQL from contractors who meet any one of the following criteria:
1) The submitting entity must be a Certified Minority/Woman Business enterprise (M/WBE)*;
2) The submitting entity must be a registered joint venture or have a valid legal agreement as a joint venture, with at least one of the entities in the joint venture being a certified M/WBE*;
3) The submitting entity must indicate a commitment to sub-contract no less than 50 percent of any awarded job to a certified M/WBE for every work order awarded.
* Firms that are in the process of becoming a New York City-certified M/WBE, may submit a PQL application and submit a M/WBE Acknowledgement Letter, which states the Department of Small Business Services has begun the Certification process.
Application documents may also be obtained on-line at: http://a856-internet.nyc.gov/nycvendoronline/home.asap.; or http:www.nycgovparks.org/opportunities/business.
