The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals to establish a contract
through competitive negotiations for Design and Construction Cost Estimating and Scheduling
Services by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), an agency of the
Commonwealth of Virginia.
The mission of the Virginia Tech supplier opportunity program is to foster inclusion in the university
supply chain and accelerate economic growth in our local communities through the engagement
and empowerment of high quality and cost competitive small, minority-owned, women-owned, and
local suppliers. Virginia Tech encourages prime suppliers, contractors, and service providers to
facilitate the participation of small businesses, and businesses owned by women and minorities
through partnerships, joint ventures, subcontracts, and other inclusive and innovative relationships.
The term of this contract is for one (1) year, or as negotiated. There will be an option for four (4)
additional one-year renewals, or as negotiated.
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) is located in Blacksburg, Virginia,
approximately 40 miles southwest of Roanoke, Virginia, the major commercial hub of the area. In
addition to the university’s main campus in Blacksburg, major off campus locations include twelve
agriculture experiment research stations, the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center and
medical and graduate centers in Roanoke and Fairfax, Virginia. Regularly scheduled air service is
provided at the Roanoke Regional Airport.
Dedicated to its motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), Virginia Tech takes a hands-on, engaging
approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities. As the
Commonwealth’s most comprehensive university and its leading research institution, Virginia Tech
offers 240 undergraduate degree programs to more than 31,000 students and manages a research
portfolio of nearly $513 million. The university fulfills its land-grant mission of transforming
knowledge to practice through technological leadership and by fueling economic growth and job
creation locally, regionally, and across Virginia.
Virginia Tech is seeking experienced firms who will coordinate with the project team to provide
realistic cost estimates and scheduling for design, construction, and renovation projects. Skilled
analysis of the project scope, time, cost, quality and performance is sought to identify potential
project issues and to minimize or eliminate costs and schedule impacts for projects. The Offeror(s)
should demonstrate the ability to provide scheduling and cost estimation services at any stage of
the design and construction process.
