K.4.b. SPC 38.46-16: Construction Testing Services Proposal for Special Inspection at New Napa Junction Elementary School (Action Item)
Rationale:

This item is for construction inspection and materials testing as required by the Division of the State Architect (DSA).  DSA form 103 lists all the types of inspections for which special inspection is required for a specific project, including by not limited to: soils compaction tests, inspection of cast in place concrete, concrete batch plant inspection and inspection of steel fabrication.  

An RFP was issued on August 1, 2019 requesting proposals for special inspection.  The RFP included the project documents, DSA 103 form and additional project information.  Four firms submitted proposals which included their fees for the work and their qualifications as a firm and particular staff members.  All firms were deemed responsive and qualified to provide inspection. The Office of School Planning and Construction has reviewed all proposals received and compared costs for all items including hourly rates, show up time rates, sample pickup rates, escalation percentages and total estimate  amounts.  

Based on the analysis of the proposals, it is recommended to award the scope of work for special inspection services for the construction of the New Napa Junction Elementary School to Construction Testing Services (CTS).
