The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (“Port Authority” or “Authority”) seeks to award Master Agreements (also referred to as “Contracts”) for General Construction Services on a Work Order basis for the Airtrain Newark Replacement Project (the “Project”). The Authority anticipates awarding Master Agreements to multiple firms that prequalify under this Request for Qualification Statement (“RFQS”) under two separate ranges. Work Orders issued under these Master Agreements may include multiple work types that are further specified in the RFQS.
Firms may submit qualifications for one or more of the ranges below, but in every case must demonstrate compliance with requirements set forth in the RFQS.
Range A is set aside for Local Port Authority Certified M/WBE firms. Range B are open to all firms.
1. Range A – Up to $2,500,000 (Small Contracts Program set-aside)*
2. Range B – $2,500,000 to $20,000,000
* Only Local (as defined in the RFQS) Port Authority certified minority and women business enterprises (“MWBE”) firms can qualify for Range A. Local MWBE firms can also qualify for Range B.
The Authority currently estimates that the total amount of Work to be awarded under all Work Orders will be between $50,000,000 to $65,000,000.
It is anticipated that the bid document(s) will be available to pre-qualified bidders on a work order basis as needed. In order to pre-qualify for the above project, all participating firms must execute the Terms of Discussion and submit the Contractor’s Qualification Statement with their RFQS submittal package.
