The City intends to award up to four (4) Master Agreements, each having a 5-year term and up to $2,000,000 contract amount limit.


San Francisco Public Works (Public Works), City and County of San Francisco (City) announces a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the provision of professional Architectural and Engineering design services for health facilities on an as-needed basis.

Public Works is the primary agency providing multi-disciplinary architectural design and consultation services to other City Departments and Agencies. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is intended for projects by the Department of Public Health, including hospitals and general acute care facilities under jurisdiction of the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD).

Projects will range from full professional services for design-bid-build projects requiring multiple disciplines, to projects of limited scope, which may involve only one specialized consulting service.

The City intends to award up to four (4) Master Agreements, each having a 5-year term and up to $2,000,000 contract amount limit. The City reserves the right to change the number of contracts and contract amount limits to be awarded. Contract Service Orders (CSO’s) will be issued during the first four years only. Individual CSO’s may only exceed $600,000 with pre-approval from the Director of Public Works. This is an “as-needed” contract. Award of a contract neither guarantees all or a portion of the contract amount, nor does it guarantee that the projected amount would be expended.

Statement of Qualifications (Proposals) will be received at 30 Van Ness Avenue, Suite 4100, San Francisco, California until 4:00 P.M. Pacific Time, February 10, 2017. Consultants shall submit Proposals as required in the RFQ package. Late submittals will not be considered.

Pursuant to Charter Section 3.105, all CSOs are subject to certification by the Controller as to the availability of funds.
