The Board of Education of School District No. 39 - Vancouver (the “Board”) will use architects and other professional consultants as prime consultants as required for school projects. The Board will pre-qualify prime consultants (“list”) who are interested in working on a variety of projects.
Stage I: Pre-qualification
- The Board will invite responses from consultants who are interested in pre-qualifying for the provision of prime consultant services to the Board. The purpose of this process is to develop a list of consultants with the required expertise, capabilities and resources to provide services on specific projects.
- A Working Committee, consisting of the Associate Superintendent or designate, Director of Facilities, Facility Division Manager and/or delegate, Manager of Purchasing and Administrative Services or delegate will co-ordinate the process for assessing the responses to the request for pre-qualification. The Working Committee will evaluate the consultants using a set of pre-established criteria and determine if the consultants are appropriate for inclusion on the List.
Stage II: Project-Specific Appointment
- If the list is sufficient, the Working Committee will determine the availability of a number of consultants. These consultants will be requested to submit a proposal on a project-specific basis.
- The Working Committee will review the short-listed candidates, may arrange for interviews and will appoint a prime consultant for each relevant project.
