Pursuant to California Government Code sections 4525, et seq., and 53060, the San Diego Unified School District (District) is soliciting written statements of qualifications from professional firms and individuals for various projects that will require California licensed geotechnical engineering services including construction materials testing and construction inspection services.

Logs and final verified reports and affidavits, as well as as-built documentation/photos of completed work, will, also, be needed at various District sites.
Interested Proposers must be able to provide both geotechnical engineering services and construction materials testing services in response to this RFQ. Failure to meet this requirement will render Proposer's response incomplete.
The District is planning to award several as-needed contracts for periods of three to five years. These contracts may comprise multiple projects and will be authorized by individual task order. Projects range in scope from minor repair and renovation to building replacement and new construction.
Proposals from small businesses, minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and disabled veteran-owned businesses are encouraged. The District also seeks to promote employment and business opportunities for local residents and firms on all contracts as such opportunities may occur and to the extent legally possible.
Design professional services offered pursuant to a design professional contract, or any amendment thereto, entered into on or after January 1, 2007, with a public agency, incorporate by reference the provisions of Civil Code section 2782.8.
Submitting firms must have a minimum of three years' project experience for a California school district. (Firms submitting as a Joint Venture must meet this three (3) year experience requirement with the Joint Venture's federal tax identification number as the Joint Venture and must include a true, correct copy of the executed joint venture agreement. If not already in existence, the District requires a statement in the joint venture agreement that each individual joint venturer shall be jointly and severally liable for the obligations and liabilities of the joint venture.)
As of January 1, 2012, the San Diego Unified School District no longer administers the in-house Labor Compliance Program for all new construction projects. However, prevailing wage requirements still apply to all public works projects and must be followed pursuant to law.
