Professional Services Contracting

The Division of Public Works is responsible for the contracting of design and construction services for public works projects for state owned facilities for numerous state agencies.

We are committed to providing efficient and cost effective services to our client agencies.

Design Professional Services

Requests for Qualification from qualified and interested design professionals and RFQ results by date and Public Works project number.

How the RFQ process works

Responding to a Request

When a remodel or construction project has been approved by the PBFAC, the Division of Facilities and Construction follows an established process to solicit qualifications

The Request for Qualifications is posted online and published in local newspapers or business journals in accordance with Idaho Code.

Submitting Qualifications

By the specified date and time, qualifications are submitted in the form requested in the Request for Qualifications. The Division will coordinate reviewing the submitted documents with Agency personnel and, usually, an independent design professional.

Ranking of Qualified Firms

Following the opening and review of the submissions, the Division ranks the firms. Firms may or may not be interviewed; a short-list of firms may or may not be used. Following the ranking process, the recommended ranking of the firms who responded to the RFQ is submitted to the PBFAC at a regularly scheduled meeting for their approval. The DPW Professional Opportunities webpage lists the results of the ranking.

Authorization to Proceed

Upon successfully negotiating a design services agreement with the top ranked firm (or subsequently ranked firm failing that) and submission of all the required insurance documents and return to the Division of the signed agreement, the Authorization to Proceed is issued.
