What's Next

Contractor Pre-Selection:

  • An Evaluation Panel will evaluate each QBS Submittal Booklet using qualification criteria described in the RFQ.
  • If qualified, the contractor becomes a “Pre-Selected Contractor” and is placed on a list to bid on future CPS Projects that are estimated to cost between $100,000 and $500,000 or $500,000 to $1,500,000.


Invitation to Bid and Contract:

  • When DAS Construction Services has a State Building Construction Project that is estimated to cost between $100,000 and $1,500,000 for one of the nine Classes of Work, it will send an Invitation to Bid (by email) to all of the Contractors on the applicable “Pre-Selected Contractor List”.
  • The Pre-Selected Contractors will be treated as General (Prime) Contractors and will be the only Contractors invited to submit bids on the CPS Project.
  • A contract will be awarded to the “Lowest Responsible and Qualified Bidder”.
