SAN DIEGO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
FACILITIES PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT INSPECTION SERVICES
Notice is hereby given that the San Diego Unified School District of San Diego County, California (District) is soliciting written qualifications from qualified Proposers desiring to provide construction project inspection services to the District for the bond projects described below. All services requested will be under the direction of the Facilities Planning and Construction Division. The construction project inspectors will perform services to protect the interests of the District and will work directly with District employed Construction Managers. The District intends to award a contract(s) to the firm(s) and/or individual(s) that are most qualified and responsive to this request. The term of the contract(s) will be two years with an option to extend up to three (3) years at Districts discretion.
The District currently has over 130,032 students attending classes at 223 sites comprised of K-12 District and Charter schools, making it the second largest school district in California and one of the largest urban school districts in the United States.
The District's capital improvements are funded by two General Obligation bond measures -- Propositions S and Z. On November 4, 2008, voters of San Diego County passed Proposition S (Prop. S) in the amount of $2.1 billion, and on November 6, 2012, Proposition Z (Prop. Z) was approved in the amount of $2.8 billion. In an effort to provide a quality school in every neighborhood, the District is using Prop. S and Prop. Z funds to repair, renovate and revitalize District schools. Bond projects include classroom technology, safety and security upgrades, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades, new/renovated facilities for College, Career and Technical Education, temporary classrooms replaced by permanent classrooms, air conditioning, upgrades to ADA improvements to athletic facilities, turf fields, and other capital improvements at traditional and charter schools throughout the District. By law, capital improvement bond funds cannot be used for teacher or administrative salaries. A complete list of scheduled Prop. S and Prop. Z projects with a summary of designated schools can be viewed on the Districts website at http://www.sandi.net/site/Default.aspx?PageID=1913.
Over the next two years, the District plans to implement many bond construction projects. With such an aggressive schedule, the selected firm(s) may be expected to provide between five (5) and fifteen (15) Division of State Architect Project Inspectors with any certification level at any given time within the term of the Agreement.
Participation of small emerging business enterprises (EBEs) including minority, women, and disabled veteran business enterprises is 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.
