Project Scope
Project Description
San Francisco Public Works (Public Works), a department of the City and County of San Francisco (City), announces a Request for Proposal (RFP), seeking qualified suppliers (“Proposers”) to provide proposals for Contract Management and Project Controls Services for the SFMTA Potrero Yard Modernization Project (Potrero Project).
The Selected Proposer will be responsible for providing Contract Management and Project Controls for the Potrero Project. This project involves design and construction performed under a design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBFOM) Project Agreement. SFPW project management will remain the project delivery lead while the Selected Proposer will support in managing and administering the design and construction work conducted by a private-sector developer.
Services may include: (1) General oversight of developer’s quality assurance and quality control systems and processes during design and construction of the infrastructure facility that will house the bus yard component of the project; (2) Provide robust project controls with respect to cost management, schedule management, and change management; and (3) Monitoring status, reviewing developer’s reporting updates, and producing reporting materials to various project stakeholders on a variety of topics
The contract resulting from this RFP will have an initial term of 1,643 days. It is anticipated that the project will reach commercial and financial close with a fully executed DBFOM Project Agreement by mid-2024. Final design activities are expected to commence in summer of 2024, with the move-out and decommissioning of the existing facility and commencement of construction in Quarter 3 of 2024. Construction is expected to be completed by end of calendar year 2027.
The City estimates that the contract amount for the Scope of Services will be approximately $5,000,000. This budgeted amount is based on the City’s estimated spend over the anticipated contract term.
