NOTICE OF PROPOSED EXEMPTION ODOT Competitive Bidding Requirement Exemption ODOT is requesting the exemption from the competitive bidding requirement to allow the use of an alternative selection method known as Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the South Coast Region Seismic Ready Facility (SCRSRF) project, located in Coos County, Oregon. The SCRSRF project is a technically complex project that will improve the safety and operations in the south coast region by building a Category IV seismic resiliency facility, as well as combine the Area Project Managers office, Region 3 Bridge Crew, and Davis Slough Maintenance Crew. The facility will be a fully self-contained transportation facility with stocked construction materials to rebuild the south coast infrastructure in the event of a natural disaster. The CM/GC selection method is a procurement method that presents an alternative to the competitive (low) bid process of contracting. The CM/GC method awards projects to the CM/GC contractor on the basis of qualifications, experience and expertise (as opposed to selection based solely on low bid) that are necessary for addressing the complex and critical issues identified above. Among other benefits of CM/GC contracting, the method includes input from the contractor during the design process through collaboration with ODOT and the design team, to help optimize project design and reduce cost and schedule risks.
