    Florida State University (FSU) has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to pre-qualify Contractors for the Job Order Contracting program. FSU is seeking to pre-qualify Contractors for general construction services and mechanical / electrical services. There is a separate pre-qualification for the Tallahassee campus and the Panama City campus.

    To obtain the Request for Qualification document, go to the FSU Public Procurement Portal and select Competitive Solicitations. The web address is as follows:

    The selection process for the Job Order Contracts shall be a two-phase process involving Phase 1 Request for Qualifications of potential Contractors followed by Phase 2 solicitation of cost proposals from the pre-qualified Contractors.

    Interested Contractors must submit a complete and submit a pre-qualification package by the Pre-Qualification Phase 1 submission deadline. Any vendor seeking to pre-qualify for both the general construction contract and the mechanical/electrical construction contract must submit a separate pre-qualification application package for each contract.

    By utilizing the Job Order Contracting procurement system, FSU expects a collaborative process of project procurement that combines the commitment, expertise and skills of FSU and the Contractor to achieve the completion of a large number of projects with a single competitive solicitation. JOC provides an effective means of reducing total lead-time for public works projects.

    It is FSU’s intent to award separate contracts for general construction work and mechanical / electrical construction work for the repair and rehabilitation of sites and facilities under the jurisdiction of the University on the main campus in Tallahassee, FL. The work of this Contract will be set forth in the Detailed Scopes of Work referenced in the individual Job Orders. The Contractor is required to complete each Detailed Scope of Work for the Job Order Price within the Job Order Completion Time.
