Architect and Engineering Services

When considering the acquisition of architectural and engineering services the district will issue a notice in publication(s) of general circulation stating the general scope and nature of project(s) for which services are required. Effort will be made to inform firms who employ minorities and/or women.

Interested firms will be requested to submit a statement of qualifications and performance data to enable the district to determine which architectural or engineering firm will best serve the needs of the district. Criteria for selection of a firm will include, but not be limited to, quality and breadth of staff, design of similar projects, production capability, supervision and quality control, relationship with clients, cost estimates and budget control and review of references.

The superintendent or designee is directed to establish necessary procedures to solicit and screen qualified engineers and architects. The superintendent will recommend one or more firms to the board for its consideration. The district and the successful architectural or engineering firm will enter into a contract for the necessary services. In the event of an emergency, the district may waive this selection process and secure such services as needed with board approval.
