RFQs

Consultant Qualification Program


UPDATE (9/1/16): MIT received a robust response to the eight RFQs issued through the pilot round of the Consultant Qualification Program. We appreciate the time and effort undertaken by firms in preparing their submittals. Committees are now actively reviewing each submittal received. Due to the high volume of responses, this review is taking longer than initially anticipated. Applicants will be notified via email of decisions and, where applicable, next steps as the relevant committee completes its review. 

The MIT Offices of Campus Planning, Campus Construction, Utilities & Maintenance, and Infrastructure Business Operations are jointly initiating a Consultant Qualification Program to identify and prequalify professional design and consulting service providers for the planning and renovation of facilities infrastructure on MIT’s 163-acre campus consisting of 12.6 million square feet and 152 buildings.

This Consultant Qualification Program will broadly solicit and prequalify firms for upcoming MIT design and engineering projects, and position MIT for design excellence through the selection of highly qualified, cost-effective consultants. Requests for Qualification will be issued by discipline and, in some cases, by project type. This initial round of RFQs focuses primarily on small and recurring project types. In addition, for each of the services included in this initial round of the program, MIT anticipates placing a select group of firms under multi-year repetitive service contracts.

Firms are encouraged to respond to more than one RFQ in the event that they seek work in multiple service areas.

After this initial round of the Consultant Qualification Program is complete, additional rounds of RFQs will be issued for other disciplines and project types. It is the intent of the program to broadly solicit firms in an open call for qualifications.

We look forward to meeting new firms and refreshing our acquaintance with firms we have worked with before.

Information on each of the RFQs is provided below. Please note that each RFQ submittal must be accompanied by the specific CQ Form provided for that RFQ in the chart below. Please also note that we will be unable to answer phone calls regarding this solicitation. Technical and substantive questions were due via e-mail on Friday, June 17.

Questions and responses are provided here via RFQ Q&A addendum.

We look forward to hearing from you.
