Request For Qualifications For Consultant Roster


The Office of Facilities Development and Capital Budget is requesting that consulting firms interested in contracting with Western Washington University submit their qualifications in accordance with the requirements below.

All firms legally engaged in the State of Washington, in the practice of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, interior design, planning, and related services are encouraged to submit a completed standard Federal 330 form (Part II) with a cover letter. Western Washington University is committed to providing the maximum practicable opportunity for participation by Combination Business Enterprise (CBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Minority/Women Business Enterprise (MWBE), Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (SEDBE), and Women Business Enterprise (WBE) in public works. Consultant should indicate that status in their cover letter and attach a copy of their certification letter from the Washington State OMWBE. Consultants may contact OMWBE at (360) 753-9693 to obtain information on certification. Please submit one copy of Standard Federal 330 Form (Part II only) with a small brochure that will fit within a legal size folder. OMIT loose data, large project brochures and drawings.

Consultant shall include in their qualifications a current Certificate(s) of Insurance for Commercial General Liability, Business Auto Liability, Worker’s Compensation and Professional Liability Insurance. Limits of liability must be at least $1,000,000. The University’s Risk Manager will review the furnished certificate(s) of insurance and deviations from the minimum requirements will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, although deviations are not likely to be accepted.

At a minimum, Western Washington University, its trustees, officers, directors, employees, agents and volunteers shall be named as an additional insured (except Worker’s Compensation and Professional Liability Insurance), all rights against the University for recovery of damages shall be waived and all insurance shall be primary and shall not contribute to any other insurance or self-insurance programs afforded to the University. Also, additional coverage may be required depending on the specific project selected.

The consultant shall agree to the University’s standard indemnification and hold harmless provision, which is in favor of the University, and will agree to waive its immunity under Title 51 RCW.

If you have any questions, contact Teyra Carter, Facilities Development and Capital Budget.

The submittals should be postmarked, hand delivered or emailed to no later than February 21, 2020.

The Office of Facilities Development and Capital Budget will dispose of all consultant data currently in its files on February 28, 2020. This material may be retrieved (in person only) prior to that date.

For SMALL PROJECTS (consultant fees less than $300,000), REPAIRS, and EMERGENCY WORK, the University may select consultants directly from the consultant roster without further notice. For MAJOR PROJECTS (consultant fees $300,000 or higher), advertisements will appear in the Bellingham Herald and Daily Journal of Commerce indicating the intent of the University to select a consultant for a specific project from the instructions given at that time.
