PROCUREMENT BACKGROUND

This project was advertised with two pre-bid meetings held on site.

 

The Notice to Bidders was advertised on November 30, 2017 in the Charlotte Observer and the Charlotte Post.  The Notice to Bidders and other bid documents were provided to the Metrolina Minority Contractors Association, Hispanic Contractors Association of the Carolinas, the Charlotte Association of General Contractors (AGC) and the Minority, Women, and Small Business Enterprise Program for Mecklenburg County.

 

A mandatory pre-bid meeting was held on December 7, 2017.  In attendance were representatives of four Elevator Contractors. Contractors were advised of contracting procedures for County projects, including the projected MWSBE goals.

 

After the pre-bid meeting, an additional Elevator Contractor who was unable to attend the pre-bid meeting, requested to participate in the bidding for the project. A second pre-bid meeting was held on January 9, 2018.  In attendance were representatives of four Elevator Contractors, one of which was not present at the first pre-bid meeting. Contractors were advised of contracting procedures for County projects, including the projected MWSBE goals.

 

Bids were received on Thursday, January 25, 2018.  Three firms submitted bids.  The low base bid received, including all allowances and contingency, was in the amount of $1,089,810.49.

Prime Contractor   MBE    0%       WBE    0%     SBE   100%
