REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FIRING RANGE VENTILATION SYSTEM FOR THE CITY OF AMSTERDAM, NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT Introduction The Amsterdam Police Department, with the support of Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), is undertaking the substantial rehabilitation of its firing range in the basement of the Amsterdam Public Safety Building, located at 1 Guy Park Ext, Amsterdam, NY 12010. Presently, the firing range is compromised by both obsolete/dilapidated equipment/room fit-up and a clearly inadequate ventilation system.
Although, desired room fit up and equipment upgrades are readily specified, implementation of a new ventilation system requires that design-engineering and development of construction specifications before a comprehensive construction bid package can be issued. Accordingly, the procurement process will be divided into two phases: [1] The RFP for engineering services contained herein; and, [2] A separate bid package for equipment and construction services to be issued upon completion of the engineering/design phase, inclusive of all firing range improvements and installation of the specified ventilation system.
Pursuant to New York State Executive Law Article 15-A, the City of Amsterdam recognizes its obligation under the law to promote opportunities for maximum feasible participation of certified minority-and women-owned business enterprises and the employment of minority group members and women in the performance of contracts. Accordingly, the City of Amsterdam encourages the submission of proposals by MWBE firms to meet the DASNY established overall goal of 20% for MWBE participation, 13% for Minority-Owned Business Enterprises (“MBE”) participation and 7% for Women-Owned Business Enterprises (“WBE”) participation (based on the current availability of qualified MBEs and WBEs).
Consultant Selection — Assessment and Scoring
The Amsterdam Police Department shall review all proposals received as a result of the RFP. The following criteria will be used in evaluating consultant responses:
Quality and completeness of the response
Understanding of the proposed work plan
Previous experience in undertaking closely analogous projects
Cost-effectiveness of the proposal
Qualifications and relevant experience with respect to the tasks to be performed
Reputation among previous clients
Ability to complete all project tasks within the allotted time and budget
Specifications may be obtained between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, in the following office: City Clerk, City of Amsterdam City Hall, 61 Church Street, Amsterdam, NY 12010 (518) 841-4313.
Incomplete proposals that do not address all of the requested components will not be accepted for review and consideration. All respondents will be notified of the selection as soon as possible after the submission deadline. The City may conduct interviews with one or more proposers. The City reserves the right to reject all proposals. Information, Submission and Deadline One (1) original and five (5) hard copies of the proposal must be submitted by Thursday, July 20, 2017 Additionally, respondents must submit one copy in PDF format.
