Consultants Info Page

Welcome, Professional Service Providers!

Below are links to helpful information for consultants doing business with the University. It is helpful to know there are two front doors to doing business with the University as a construction-related consultant:

  • CURRENT RFQs - This pages lists current solicitations for the Business Center North Purchasing Department (BCN Purchasing). This department oversees the Request for Qualifications process on University design/engineering work valued at over $100K.
  • CONSULTANTS PRE-QUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE - To get put onto the "as needed" list for consultant jobs valued under $100K, please submit this form. These contracts are awarded by the Planning & Construction department based of qualifications.

FEE PROPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS - If you have completed the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire and are selected as the most qualified firm to complete a consultant job, you will receive a request for fee proposal. For a proposal to be considered and accepted, there are items that must be included, and items that may not. Please see this document for an outline of what we require in proposals.

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS - All work at the University must conform to our standards. These are updated on an annual basis and are incorporated into every construction project's contracts.

INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS - This is a quick guide list of what insurance is required to perform professional services work with the University. All consultants must carry the required insurance.

SAMPLE CONTRACT DOCUMENTS - For consultant work, we use the Pre-Design Agreement or the Professional Services Agreement, depending on the nature of the job. These samples are available for you to review to understand the University's requirements in consultant work.
