Welcome prime contractors to the SANDAG "Bench" of Architecture & Engineering (A&E) small business firms. SANDAG recently executed 15 new contracts with an estimated value of $260 million for the On-Call Architecture and Engineering for Design and Environmental program. The A&E contracts will provide consultant services for transportation infrastructure projects in San Diego County including transit system improvements, freeway and bridge enhancements, landscape design, freeway corridors, and other design efforts. Disadvantage Business Enterprises (DBE) and Small Business (SB) firms have been invited to join the "Bench" to participate in these efforts.
The "Bench" is composed of A&E firms that are certified as DBE as certified by the California Unified Certification Program (CUCP) or a SB certified by the Department of General Services (DGS). The Bench is open to DBE and SB firms that provide a variety of professional A & E services and can serve as a pool of certified firms that prime consultants will be able to easily access to work on SANDAG projects.
So primes, now that you have access to the "Bench" list, SANDAG encourages you to include "Bench" consultants when you develop a team to work on SANDAG projects. Thank you for participating in the new "A & E Bench" process that will increase small business opportunities, promote and foster diversity opportunities, and be a conduit to creating partnerships with large and small firms.
