Design Consultants

The New Jersey Schools Development Authority (SDA) solicits proposals from design consultants to furnish architectural, engineering and other related consulting services for specific project assignments for various school projects throughout the State of New Jersey. These projects will be advertised on the SDA website.

Design consultant projects use a traditional Request for Qualifications/Request for Proposal (RFQ/RFP) process whereby any prequalified firm meeting the criteria as listed in the advertisement is eligible to submit a proposal. Firms wishing to participate must have an active SDA prequalification as of the date when RFQ proposals are due. RFQ proposals must be submitted to the SDA on or before the due date specified in the advertisement. All proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee comprising a school district representative and SDA staff, to determine a shortlist of firms that will then be issued an RFP. Through the RFP, the shortlisted firms are given a scope of work for the project, invited to a pre-proposal conference and asked to submit technical and fee proposals to SDA by a certain date. All proposals will be independently reviewed and scored by the selection committee. All responses to the RFP are then ranked, negotiated and awarded to the consultant with the best qualifications.
