The last day for questions from prospective Proposers is at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, December 22, 2021.
Please submit four (4) hard copies and (1) copy on a flash/USB drive in response to the Request for Proposals (RFP), including an introductory letter, business information and history, office location(s), list of comparable projects, professional qualifications, ability to meet schedules, familiarity of applicable rules and regulations.

The City will select the CMAR Contractor by using a two-step Request for Proposal (RFP) process. After evaluating the submitted Proposals from the CMAR Proposers, the City will shortlist and interview up to three Proposers. The City will then select and enter into negotiations with the Best Value Proposer. The City may discuss with the selected Proposer, options for a scope or time modification and any price change associated with such modification.
The selected CMAR Contractor will provide Pre-Construction Services including Constructability Reviews, Value Engineering Recommendations and Estimating Services Fees to review during the various phases of the design process. Once the construction documents are completed, the selected CMAR Contractor will provide a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) and construction performance period for each of the three major portions of the work and all work combined. This GMP will be inclusive of Value Engineering and Estimating Services fees, General Conditions, Construction Manager’s Fee, contingency, bonds, insurance, and other agreed upon costs; plus the City’s General Contingency Allowance. The total construction cost is anticipated to be approximately $100,000,000.00, refer to the “Project Proposal Form” found in the Instructions to Construction Manager-At-Risk (CMAR) Proposers
The City of Fort Worth will negotiate a Pre-Construction Services Contract and later negotiate a Construction Services Contract with the selected CMAR firm determined to have made the Best Value offer. Refer to the “Project Proposal Form”.
Refer to the Request for Proposal documents for the Business Equity Ordinance Information. Business Equity will be evaluated in awarding this contract. The Business Equity goal is 30% for the estimated construction budgets. The goal will be applied to the GMPs (and fees) when the GMP agreements are reached. Proposers must submit an anticipated Business Equity Utilization Plan with their CMAR Proposal submittal. The submitted Plan will be part of the weighted selection criteria. Refer to Instructions to Construction Manager-at-Risk (CMAR) Proposers for additional information. For additional information contact the Business Equity Division via e-mail at DVIN_BEOffice@fortworthtexas.gov
Upon completing the negotiations with the selected CMAR firm, the City will enter into a pre-construction services agreement, which will be administratively executed and once an GMP is agreed upon, the City will provide recommendation to the City Council to award the CMAR contract to the selected CMAR firm based on the negotiations and the agreed upon estimated construction budgets for each of the three major tasks. The CMAR contract will be adjusted based on the agreed upon Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) after the design is completed.
The selected CMAR Contractor will be required to provide Payment and Performance Bonds and provide Contractors General Liability and Statutory Workers Compensation Coverage once the GMP is agreed upon.
