The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services:
Project No. 2016-173
Center for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
Clover Park Technical College, Lakewood, WA
The Department of Enterprise Services (DES) invites you to attend a Pre-Submittal Conference to discuss the coming Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Project No. 2016-173. Submittal of Design-Build team qualifications is the first phase of a two-phase solicitation process. Phase two will be a Request for Proposals from short-listed Design-Build teams (Finalists).
The Pre-Submittal Conference is an opportunity for interested primes, design consultants and subcontractors to learn about the project, RFQ strategy and solicitation process. Attendees will meet the DES Project Manager and Outreach Manager and will learn about the diversity expectations for the project. The conference is also an opportunity for interested contractors and design consultants to network and share suggestions for ensuring an inclusive, open and competitive process.
Representatives from DES’s Diversity Program, the Office of Minority and Women Business Enterprises, and the Department of Veterans Affairs may also be in attendance to discuss the state’s diversity goals.
