Evaluation Process and Criteria

Kearney Hall UC Davis

Campus Selection Committee will evaluate the Stage 2 RFP Proposers by considering the three component parts of the Stage 2 RFP: (1) Stage 2 RFP Design Charrette; (2) Stage 2 RFP Proposal; and, (3) Stage 2 RFP Final Interview. However, if the Design Charrette, Stage 2 RFP Proposal, and Final Interview are found to be insufficient to select among the Proposers, the University reserves the right to require additional presentations or meetings with the Proposers.

The Campus Selection Committee will consider the following criteria in evaluating each component of the Stage 2 RFP:

  • Proposer’s interactions with the Campus Selection Committee during the Design Charrette and the Final Interview, including the cohesiveness of the Proposer’s team;
  • Demonstrated flexibility of Proposer’s team in planning and design and the ability to work collaboratively to meet the requirements of Campus;
  • Proposer’s clarity of written and oral communication;
  • Proposer’s demonstrated understanding of, and demonstrated ability to achieve, the Project goals (including affordability, quality of resident life, building community and exceptional facility design and operations) in its project approach;
  • The comprehensiveness, innovation and effectiveness of Proposer’s Stage 2 RFP Proposal, including:
    • Project Schedule;
    • Master Planning and Phasing Approach;
    • Construction Logistics/Sequencing;
    • Project Management Approach;
    • Operations and Maintenance Approach;
    • Stakeholder Engagement;
    • Sustainability Approach;
    • Design Submittal; and
    • Financial Proposal.

Note: It is expected that in the Proposer’s Stage 2 RFP Proposal there will be a greater degree of detail and specificity than in the Stage 1 Proposal.

  • Proposer’s project approach to providing exceptional customer service during the operating phase of the Projects and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with Campus Student Housing and Dining Services to provide resident programming; and
  • Proposer’s project approach to meeting the Orchard Park Redevelopment Project’s sustainability goals and the West Village Transfer Student Housing Project’s Zero Net Energy goals.
