11 Design-Build Procurement
12 AASHTO Guide for Design-Build Procurement Proposal Evaluation Plan should be: Fair Equitable Transparent
13 AASHTO Guide for Design-Build Procurement Guidelines for Evaluation Planning Be as explicit and as objective as possible with all evaluation criteria Clearly state the evaluation criteria and weight given for each item Ensure that the evaluation team is highly qualified and understands how to apply the criteria Clearly state the requirements of the RFP including what will be considered a non-responsive proposal
14 VDOT Evaluation Basics Goal of evaluation is to select the best value proposal in terms of price and quality Offerors have expectations that they will be treated fairly and in accordance with the rules laid out in the procurement documents Offerors are given opportunity to ask questions related to the procurement documents Evaluation team has the right to seek a clarifications to fully understand information contained in a proposal As a public agency, procurement must be ready to respond to public scrutiny
15 Evaluation Objectives RFQ versus RFP RFQ Stage - Conceptual For qualifying/short listing Capabilities Demonstrated experience Key personnel Project understanding Relatively low cost for proposal preparation
16 Evaluation Objectives RFQ versus RFP RFP Stage - Detailed Detailed technical proposal with lump sum price Design concept Approach to construct project QA/QC program implementation Binding High cost for proposal preparation
17 RFP Evaluation Process Technical Proposal – Weighting 30% Price Proposal – Weighting of 70% Scoring Range Application –Evaluation Criteria included for each submittal requirement –Guidelines for Evaluation of Design-Build Proposals (on VDOT website)
18 Price Proposal Lump Sum Amount Proposal Guaranty Lowest Bid Receives Maximum Points Other Bids Pro-rated from Maximum Points Opened and Read Publicly Combined with Technical Score to Determine Overall Proposal Score
19 Combining Technical Score with Price Many Procurements – Highest Technical Score also has Lowest Price
20 Design-Build Procurement Challenges Scope issues during the RFP phase Adequate resources dedicated to evaluate proposals Defined process for evaluating proposals Bid protests
21 Bid Protest Case Study 460 Connector – Bristol, Virginia Twin high-level bridge structures approximately 1600 feet in length Mainline four-lane divided highway totaling approximately 4800 feet in length A two-lane connector road to Route 80, including a second multi-span bridge over Rte 768 and Hunts Creek Contract Value was estimated at $100M
25 Case Highlights $100M project derailed by a lawsuit VDOT prevailed at the temporary Injunction hearing Plaintiff pursued and case went to trial At trial plaintiff narrowed its protest to one ground, demonstrating years of experience on the resume form
26 The RFP stated: The Right of Way Manager shall have at least ten (10) years of experience in managing complex right of way projects. Evidence of this experience will be of sufficient detail on the resume to satisfy the requirements.
27 The RFP stated: The Right of Way Manager shall have at least ten (10) years of experience in managing complex right of way projects. Evidence of this experience will be of sufficient detail on the resume to satisfy the requirements.
28 Plaintiffs argument was two-fold: 1.The years of experience listed in section (d) of the resume form did not constitute sufficient evidence to satisfy the requirements of the RFP. 2.The experience and qualifications presented on the resume were not that of a Right of Way Manager.
29 460 Connector – Resume Form
30 Judges Decision was in favor of the Plaintiff: Providing a mere number of years of experience is not sufficient detail as anticipated by the RFP. Moreover, the Right of Way Manager failed to buttress his assertion with corresponding detail. The Court has determined that the resume was deficient in that it failed to provide evidence of sufficient detail to support the contention that the Right of Way Manager had more than the ten-year minimum experience required by the Department.
31 Victory from the jaws of defeat: Set in motion a change in process Realization VDOT had to make improvements to our procurement process Documented Procedures and Guidelines – Guidelines for Evaluation of Design-Build Proposals (On VDOTS DB Website) Training for Evaluators Provide more time and resources for Technical Proposal Evaluations
32 Recommendations for moving ahead: Continued training of evaluation team members and design-build staff Define limited number of pertinent differentiators for each project Exploring 2-phase/lowest price for appropriate projects Exploring 1-phase/lowest price for appropriate projects
