The Contractor or Joint Venture members collectively, must be qualified in the advertised Construction Contractor Work Classes. The Contractor or Joint Venture cannot utilize subcontractors to meet the qualification requirements for the Construction Work Classes. The design consultant may utilize subconsultants to meet the advertised Professional Services Work Type requirements. All qualification requirements must be met prior to the Response Deadline. Two or more qualified parties submitting as a Joint Venture must meet the Joint Venture requirements of Rule Chapter 14-22, specifically Rule 14-22.007, Florida Administrative Code. Parties to a Joint Venture must submit a Declaration of Joint Venture, Form No. 375-020-18, and receive approval from the Department prior to the Response Deadline for Expanded Letters of Interest (ELOI) or submittal of the Proposal, whichever occurs first.

Please refer to this preamble and the specific project advertisement for other submittal directions.

CONSULTANT ELIGIBILITY: It is a basic tenet of the Department's contracting program that contracts are procured in a fair, open, and competitive manner. The Department requires that consultants representing the Department must be free of conflicting professional or personal interests. In order to prevent potential conflicts of interest, the Department has established guidelines to be followed by design consultants. Please familiarize yourself with the requirements of Procedure No.375-030-006, also known as: "Restriction on Consultants' Eligibility to Compete for Department Contracts." By submitting an ELOI or Bid/Price Proposal as part of a Design-Build Firm, or Joint Venture, the design consultant certifies that they are in compliance with Procedure No. 375-030-006. This procedure is available at the following link: Procedure 375-030-006 A Proposal Guaranty of not less than five percent (5%) of the total actual Bid/Price Proposal in the form of either a certified check, cashier's check, trust company treasurer's check, bank draft of any national or state bank, or a Surety Bid Bond made payable to the Florida Department of Transportation must accompany each Bid/Price Proposal in excess of $150,000. A check or draft in any amount less than five percent (5%) of the actual Bid/Price Proposal will invalidate the Bid/Price Proposal. Bid bonds shall conform to DOT Form No. 375-020-34 furnished with the Bid/Price Proposal.

For those projects designated as ADJUSTED SCORE TYPE, the Department will conduct a two-phase design-build procurement process. For Phase I, qualified Design-Build Firms must submit an ELOI for each project in which they are interested, to the indicated requesting unit by the time and date indicated as the Response Deadline. It is the responsibility of the Design-Build firm to insure that the complete ELOI is timely received by the Department. The ELOI will be limited to ten (10) 8½"x11" pages with a minimum font size of ten (10). In the ELOI, please provide the name, address, phone number, and e-mail address for the Design-Build Firm contact person; the qualification status of the contractor and design consultant as part of the Design-Build Firm, and the key companies and key personnel proposed as participating in the Project. Resumes may be separately submitted, but are limited to one 8½"x11" page each. Resumes are not counted toward the ten (10) page limitation.

The past performance information is limited to three (3) 8½"x11" pages total, and is restricted to firms without performance history with the Department and/or to firms whose performance history with the Department is no longer current (older than 5 years). The additional three pages will not count toward the ten (10) page limitation of the ELOI.  Note: Resumes, Organizational Chart and three (3) pages of Performance History with the Department are not considered in the ten (10) page count/limitation.  Cover sheets, photos, charts, etc. or other documentation not specifically listed as exclusions will be considered in the page count limitation.  

The Department will judge the relative ability of each submitting company/entity to perform the required services based on qualification information and the ELOI. Unless otherwise noted in the specific Design-Build advertisement, the criteria for evaluating the Phase I submittals will include:
  1. Design-Build Firm Name and prequalifications
  2. Past Performance Evaluations, Design-Build Project Experience, Organization, and Staffing (0-7 Total Points):

    2. Identification of critical issues
    3. Outline for addressing critical issues

Relative weightings for all Phase I criteria are specified within the project advertisement. All qualified firms submitting a responsive ELOI will be scored on a scale of 0-20 points (Phase I). The responsive Design-Build Firms will be informed of the Phase I scores. By the deadline specified in the advertisement, Design-Build Firms are required to advise the Department in writing of their intent to continue to Phase II. Design-Build Firms that do not declare affirmatively in writing by the stated deadline will not be permitted to continue on to Phase II of the Design-Build procurement process. The Department will post the Short-List (i.e. those responsive Design-Build Firms that have timely and affirmatively declared in writing) to the Department's website on the date shown below. Design-Build Firms who timely and affirmatively declare their intent in writing to the Department will be issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) that will include the Short-List of Design-Build Firms, representing all responsive Phase I Design-Build Firms that have elected to continue on to the Phase II Technical Proposal stage. The requirements for Phase II Technical Proposals will be described in the RFP. Phase II Technical Proposals will be scored on an 80 point scale. The total score from Phase I and Phase II will be added to determine the Design-Build Firm's Total Technical Score. Unless otherwise specified in the RFP, the award of the Project will be determined on a Total Adjusted Score as shown in the RFP based on both the Bid/Price Proposal and Technical Score.

The Phase I and the combined Phase I and Phase II results will be posted on the Department's website: (www.dot.state.fl.us/procurement) on the indicated date. Public meeting dates and times are provided with new listed projects. All public meetings will be held in District headquarters unless otherwise noted.

FDOT further believes that the 13% overall goal can be achieved through race neutral means, using standard competitive procurement processes. Pursuant to the provisions of Section 339.0805, Florida Statutes, and Rule 14.78.005, Florida Administrative Code, FDOT has adopted rules to provide certified DBEs opportunities to participate in the business activities of FDOT as vendors, contractors, subcontractors, and consultants.

  Although not a contract requirement, the Department believes
  that the aforementioned aspiration goal can realistically be
  achieved based on current availability of DBEs and small
  businesses. The Department further believes that the 12%
  overall goal can be achieved through race neutral means,
  using standard competitive procurement processes. Pursuant
  to the provisions of Section 339.0805, Florida Statutes, and
  rule 14.78.005, Florida Administrative Code, the Department
  has adopted rules to provide certified DBEs opportunities to
  participate in the business activities of the Department as
  vendors, contractors, subcontractors, and consultants. The
  Department has adopted the DBE definition set forth in Code
  49 of Federal Regulations Section 26.5.
