    Sarasota County Public Hospital Board


    The Sarasota County Public Hospital District d/b/a Sarasota Memorial Hospital and its governing board (collectively, “the Hospital”), located in Sarasota County, Florida, announces that continuing professional services are required for the following discipline:

    Construction Manager, minimum of three (3), with the ability to service the Sarasota Memorial Health Care System. These services may be used for projects anywhere in the buildings and spaces owned or operated by SMHCS, however it is anticipated that the vendors selected will primarily be activated for projects on the Sarasota main campus.

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The construction manager will be a single point of responsibility for performance of multiple construction contracts up to $2,000,000.00 individually, functioning as an independent contractor, publicly bidding trade contracts. Three construction management contracts will be awarded, for a period of three years.

    Typical projects assigned under this contract may include new construction, renovations, remodeling, alterations, equipment installation, additions, and code compliance corrections. The maximum per-project construction cost is $2,000,000. Given that the magnitude of some projects having construction costs less than $500,000, businesses specializing in delivering smaller scope, high-quality, healthcare-related projects are encouraged to apply.

    Continuing Service contracts for these projects provide that the Consultant will be available on an as-needed basis for a period of three (3) years. This selection is based upon construction manager at risk services only.  Other services (including architectural, mechanical, electrical, etc.) that may be required for specific projects shall be provided under a separate agreement with those consultants. Continuing Professional Service contracts for these minor projects provide that the Consultants receiving the awards will not have exclusive contracts to perform services for these projects. SMHCS may have additional consultants under contract during the same time period.

    The Applicant, and all future sub-consultants, must be properly registered to practice its profession in the State of Florida at the time of application. If the Applicant is a corporation, it must be properly chartered by the Florida Department of State to practice its profession in the State of Florida at the time of application. It is the Sarasota Memorial Health Care System’s responsibility to negotiate a fair, competitive and reasonable compensation per Section 287.055, Florida Statutes. A fair, competitive and reasonable compensation shall be evaluated based upon the following information: (1) Compensation on similar projects; (2) other compensation reference data; and (3) after approval of the ranking, proposals requested from the selected firms based upon an hourly/unit costs for services document to be provided at the time of negotiations.
