UPDATE MAY 4 2021: MWBE Utilization and Workforce Program Guidelines

Please note that the District has recently updated its MWBE Utilization and Workforce Program for Design-Build Construction Projects with State of Missouri Funding. That document along with others that outline draft insurance and bonding requirements and Design-Build procurement requirements can be downloaded on the SMU project website at www.msdprojectclear.org/smudocuments.

We will also shortly be announcing an MWBE and Workforce Outreach Virtual Meeting, so stay tuned for information about how to participate in this event.

Thank you again for your interest in this project, and please feel free to ask questions. All of the above and other information about the project is included on the project website at www.msdprojectclear.org/smu.

Thank you,

UPDATE APRIL 6, 2021: To Interested Parties of the Bissell Point and Lemay WWTF Incineration Project:

The District, upon consideration of input received to date from interested parties, has doubled the stipend budget for the project to $2,000,000 from an original amount of $1,000,000; as before, this amount would be divided equally to up to two losing teams from a three-team shortlist. The stipend will be paid out to teams that are fully respondent to the RFP criteria, and would not exceed an amount of $1,000,000 per losing team.

As previously noted, the Design-Build project is currently in preliminary design. An RFQ is also planned for July 2021 for interested design-build teams, with up to three teams being short-listed and asked to submit a proposal in 2022.

 

Interested parties may stay abreast of the latest project details and information by perusing the project website and signing up for email updates at www.msdprojectclear.org/smu. Design-Build Teams desiring a meeting with the District and Owner’s Representative team about this project may contact me at greenb2@bv.com for arrangements.

UPDATE: March 1, 2021: ISS Change from RFP to RFQ

MSD is committed to bring the best quality solution, at the most economical price to serve the St. Louis area. We listened to concerns, market conditions and made an adjustment to foster the greatest opportunity for DB Teams to be innovative to bring the best solution to the ratepayers of MSD. As such, we have decided to modify the Incinerator System Supplier (ISS) Request for Proposal (RFP) and re-structure it as a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). Responding suppliers who meet the District’s minimum standards—which will be detailed in the RFQ—will pre-qualify for consideration as the supplier of the incineration equipment in the Design-Build project procurement. 

More information will be coming out soon on this, and the ISS RFQ will be released in March 2021, and will be posted at https://www.stlmsdplanroom.com/.  

Overall, the Design-Build project is currently in preliminary design. An RFQ is also planned for July 2021 for interested design-build teams, with up to three teams being short-listed and asked to submit a proposal in 2022. 

Interested parties wanting to meet (virtually) with the District about this project should contact me via my email address greenb2@bv.com, and I will make the necessary arrangements. Going forward, we will be using the project website (https://msdprojectclear.org/projects/new-construction/smu/) and email updates such as this one for new information, invitations to meetings, and procurement materials as they are available. We will reach several milestones in the procurement process in the coming months, so I encourage you to stay tuned and to request a meeting with the District as noted above.
