RECS intends to enter into a Professional and Technical Services Master Contract with qualified Responders.
A Master Contract is a contract that spells out most, but not all of the terms between the signing parties. Its purpose is to speed up and simplify future Work Order Contracts. A Master Contract with the State is not a guarantee of receiving work issued in a Work Order Contract. A complete detailed description of required work will be furnished in each Work Order Contract issued under Master Contracts resulting from this RFP.
Work Order Contracts will be issued for individual testing and inspection projects. Dependent upon the expected fee for the project, proposals may need to be solicited from multiple firms having a Master Contract for testing and inspection services.
Continuously Open RFP
The Master Contract for Construction Testing and Inspection program RFP will be available online throughout the five (5) year Master Contract period (October 1, 2019 – September 30, 2024). Responses will only be accepted until May 30, 2024. Responses should only be sent via email to the email address listed in #4 below. Responses that meet the pass/fail qualifications will be awarded a Master Contract.
