70 A P P E N D I X D Examples of QBS Documents This appendix contains salient portions regarding qualifications-based selection (QBS) from the following documents. They are provided as examples. Readers requiring more details should contact the airport directly. • Construction manager-at-risk (CMR) request for qualifications (RFQ)—Scottsdale Airfield Improvements, Scottsdale Airport (SCF) • Progressive design–build (PDB) RFQ—Terminal 2, San Diego International Airport • PDB RFQ—Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport Monument • Indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ)—Managing General Contractor Services RFQ, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) • IDIQ—Immediate Repairs Work Order Contracts, LaGuardia Airport (LGA) • IDIQ—Paving, ATL statement of qualifications (SOQ) evaluation checklist.

Examples of QBS Documents 71 CMR Example: Scottsdale Airfield Improvements, SCF Extract: SOQ for airfield improvement CMR project. STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS AIRFIELD IMPROVEMENTS AT SCOTTSDALE AIRPORT PROJECT The City of Scottsdale is seeking a qualified Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) to provide design phase assistance and construction services for each phase as the Construction Manager at Risk for Airfield Improvements at the Scottsdale Airport. The total estimated construction cost $15,000,000 for various projects phase over 4 to 5 years. These projects will be 95% funded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) utilization will be required. SECTION I—PROJECT DESCRIPTION The Airfield Improvements will consist of the construction of new and expanded areas of asphalt taxiway connectors, reconstruct existing taxiway and airport aprons, runway safety area drainage facilities, installation of new airfield lighting, signage, pavement markings, and rehabilitation of Runway 3/21 all as depicted in Exhibit “A”. The construction will occur in multiple phases. This work is contingent upon grants from the FAA. The CMAR is to provide preconstruction design phase services and to construct the various phases of the project. The City intends to enter into a design phase contract with the CMAR for each of the phased projects. At the end of each design phase, the City also intends to enter into a separate construction contract with the CMAR for construction phase services. The project will be phased consistent with the grant allocations from the FAA. SECTION II—SCOPE OF WORK The CMAR will initially provide agency support for preconstruction design phase services and may continue with a construction contract with the City to construct for one or more phases of the project as FAA grant funding becomes available. At some point during the preconstruction design phase, the CMAR will submit a complete proposal for each phase to assume the risk of delivering the project through a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) contract. If accepted, the CMAR would be responsible for construction means and methods, and will be required to solicit bids from prequalified subcontractors to perform the work. The CMAR may also self- perform certain construction work subject to competitive evaluation of cost and ability. As noted above, construction may occur over several phases, with submission of multiple separate GMPs [guaranteed maximum prices] and construction contracts each with separate Notices to Proceed (NTP). Based on the following seasonal and operational limitations, there may be substantial time delays between issuance of each respective NTP. Definition of the phases, GMP packages and the exact dates for issuance of each NTP will be determined during the preconstruction design phase, but it is anticipated that the first phase of construction is to

72 Value, Benefits, and Limitations of Qualifications-Based Selection for Airport Project Delivery A. Preconstruction design phase services by the CMAR may include the following: • • • • Provide detailed cost estimating and knowledge of marketplace conditions; Provide constructability review and recommendation; Protect the owner’s sensitivity to quality, safety, and environmental factors; Creation of an approved Construction Safety Plan in accordance with Federal guidelines. B. Construction phase services by the CMAR will include: • Construct Airfield Improvements for each specified phase; • Assure that construction activities are limited to areas within the construction envelope fencing; • Coordinate with various City of Scottsdale departments, other agencies, utility companies, etc.; • Arrange for procurement of materials and equipment; • Schedule and manage site operations; • Bid, award, and manage all construction-related contracts while meeting city requirements for procurement of subcontractor and supplier bids; • Provide quality controls; • Bond and insure the construction; • Address federal, state, county, and local permitting requirements; • Assist in resolution of airport owner and tenant impacts; • Comply with all local, state, and federal environmental obligations and protect storm drains from illicit discharges; and • Maintain a safe work site for all project participants. SECTION III—PRE-SUBMITTAL CONFERENCE A pre-submittal conference for the Scottsdale Airport Airfield Improvements Construction Manager at Risk will be held on Friday, May 7th, 2010, at 1:00 P.M. at the Scottsdale Airport Terminal Building. At this meeting, staff will discuss the scope of work, general contract issues and respond to questions from the attendees. As the City staff will not be available to respond to individual inquiries regarding the project scope outside of this pre-submittal conference, it is strongly recommended that interested firms send a representative to the pre- submittal conference. SECTION IV—STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS EVALUATION CRITERIA The CMAR will be selected through a qualifications-based selection process. Firms interested in providing CMAR services must submit a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) that addresses the following issues: begin on or about September 2010. This first phase will most likely involve projects #1 through #6 as listed on Exhibit A. construction management services and general construction services. Explain the legal A.

About $1.5 trillion will be spent globally on airport infrastructure by 2030, according to the International Air Transport Association. Most of that enormous amount of money will be spent on projects that must be constructed without disrupting airport operations.

Given the focus on schedule and on the cost of failing to complete the construction during the periods of planned outages, the need for a highly qualified construction contractor with a proven record of timely and quality production is key to the success of airport projects across the globe.

The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Synthesis 102: Value, Benefits, and Limitations of Qualifications-Based Selection for Airport Project Delivery aims to benchmark the state of the practice with respect to the use of qualifications-based selection (QBS) to award construction projects.
