                                         Model RFP
                                       (Rev 2/02/09)

                                 Instructions to Preparers

     READ, THEN DELETE THESE SHADED INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE FINAL DOCUMENT.

The Model RFP consists of actual RFP language and instructions and explanations for the person
preparing it. Please keep in mind the following when you are preparing the RFP:

       The shaded areas contain instructions, explanations and suggested language
             that you may copy into the body of the RFP and blanks where you need
             to insert relevant information. Delete the shaded areas, or shading, as
             applicable, from the RFP draft before you submit the RFP draft to
             Purchasing Services.

       The document is set up to automatically insert the applicable delivery method,
             project name, project number and RFP issue date throughout the
             document if you insert the information on the cover page. For each
             bracketed item (<<…>>) on the cover page, click within the text and
             insert the specific information for the Project. Carefully delete the carats
             and any other extra characters. Do not delete the ending paragraph
             marker. The updated information will appear when the document
             is printed or can be viewed in print preview.

       It is very important to track all of the changes you make so Purchasing Services
               can easily compare your RFP draft to the Model RFP. The “Track
               Changes” feature in MS Word will automatically track deletions and
               additions. To use this feature:

              (1)    Select “Tools” in the Tool Bar;

              (2)    Select “Track Changes”;

              (3)    Select “Highlight Change”; and

              (4)    Select all three options in the Highlight Change pop-up box.

       Do not “Accept Changes.” Language that is NOT in the shaded areas will be
             included in the final RFP. You may add or delete language from the
             Model RFP to suit your project. Your additions and deletions will show in
             underlining and strikeout to facilitate review by Purchasing Services.
             Purchasing Services will review your changes with you and accept the
             final changes before issuing the RFP.

       The <<…>> symbol identifies where you must supply information. The
            information within the <<…>> symbol explains what needs to inserted
            and suggests the most commonly used information. Once you have
            inserted the relevant information, remove the shading from the text.

       Do not renumber sections and paragraphs. Section and paragraph numbers are
              cross-referenced throughout the RFP.     To keep these references
              consistent, add new paragraphs at the end of a section, and add new
              sections at the end of the RFP. If you delete entire sections or
              paragraphs, leave the number and insert the words “Intentionally
              Omitted.”

                              CONTENTS OF THE RFP PACKAGE

You must submit at least the following to Purchasing Services by email before Purchasing
Services will issue the RFP:

1.     A final RFP document; and

2.     A separate list of at least three suggested Respondents to receive the RFP, including the
       following information for each Respondent:

       Company Name:
       Attn:
       Address:
       City:                          State:                         Zip:
       Phone:                                         Fax:
       Email:


                        Reminder of Confidentiality of RFP Process

Each potential Respondent is provided with the same information and is subject to the same
requirements and deadline in order to provide the same opportunity to all.

To preserve the integrity of this highly controlled process, all who are involved, either directly or
indirectly, must keep all aspects of the process and the proposals confidential. In most cases,
only the Purchasing Buyer may communicate with potential Respondents.

       by the University in its sole discretion.

1.9.4 The University may require presentations or interviews.

2.0    INSTRUCTIONS TO RESPONDENTS AND RIGHTS RESERVED BY THE
       UNIVERSITY

2.1    Required Review of Documentation

       Before submitting a Proposal in response to this RFP, the Respondent shall review and
       become completely familiar with the RFP Documents.

2.2    Requests for Clarification and Information; Proposed Exceptions and
       Deviations

2.2.1 Submit all communications with the University regarding this RFP to the University
       Contact by e-mail. Each communication must clearly state the Project Name and
       University Project Number in the subject line and include in the body of the message the
       number and title of the RFP Document and the applicable section reference that is the
       subject of the communication. Communications that do not follow this format will be
       assumed to be general mail, and may not receive timely attention.

2.2.2 The University Contact must receive requests for information or clarification from
       Respondents no later than the deadline set for such requests in this RFP. The University
       will send written responses to all such requests to all Respondents on the University’s
       Official Respondents list. The “Official Respondents List” shall consist of all persons or
       companies that have requested and have been sent a copy of the RFP by the University
       Contact and/or who have attended the Pre-Proposal Meeting and Site Visit. If


University Project Number: <<xx-xxx-xx-xxxx>>                                     Page 10 of 18
       appropriate, the University may issue a change responding to such a request in the form
       of an addendum to this RFP. No other communications shall be of any effect in
       changing or amending this RFP.

2.2.3 The University strongly discourages any exceptions to or deviations from the RFP
       Documents (including, but not limited to, the Contract). If a Respondent wishes to take
       exception to or propose a deviation from any term or condition in any RFP Document,
       Respondent must describe its exception or proposed deviation in detail, clearly and
       conspicuously in its Proposal, with reference to the RFP Document and the specific
       section number of the term or condition. If a Respondent does not clearly and
       conspicuously take exception to or propose a deviation from a specific term or condition,
       the Respondent shall be bound by every term and condition in the RFP Documents in
       the event of an award of the Contract to the Respondent. The University reserves the
       right to: 1) accept a Proposal with deviations or exceptions, 2) negotiate deviations or
       exceptions, or 3) reject a Proposal as non-responsive to the extent proposed exceptions
       or deviations are deemed unacceptable by the University in its sole discretion.

2.3    Pre-Proposal Meeting and Site Visit

2.3.1 The Pre-Proposal Meeting and Site Visit will be held at the time and place indicated in
       this RFP. If this RFP states that attendance at the Pre-Proposal Meeting and
       Site Visit is mandatory, the University will not accept Proposals from
       Respondents that do not attend.

2.3.2 Respondents are not required to declare their status as potential Respondents at the
       time of the Pre-Proposal Meeting and Site Visit. Potential Respondents that attend the
       Pre-Proposal Meeting and Site Visit may decide not to submit a Proposal.

2.3.3 The University will send written replies to all questions submitted during the Pre-
       Proposal Meeting and Site Visit to all Respondents on the Official Respondents List. The
       University will not accept questions after the deadline for RFP questions stated in
       Section 1.7.

2.4    Communications Restrictions

       Respondents must not communicate with any University staff concerning the RFP except
       by e-mail through the University Contact pursuant to the procedure described in Section
       2.2. If any Respondent attempts any unauthorized communication, the University may,
       in its sole discretion, reject that Respondent’s Proposal.

2.5    Proposal Submissions - Format and Content

2.5.1 Submit proposals in a sealed envelope or package with Respondent’s name and address,
       University Project Number and RFP Title clearly marked on the outside. All paper copies
       of Proposals shall be bound in an 8½ by 11 inch format (larger format charts and
       illustrations may be folded), in a manner that facilitates easy handling, photocopying,
       and reading by the evaluation committee (such as stapled or 3-hole punched, but not
       spiral bound) and in compliance with the proposal submittal requirements set forth on
       page 1 of this RFP. All pages, except pre-printed technical inserts, must be sequentially



University Project Number: <<xx-xxx-xx-xxxx>>                                     Page 11 of 18
       numbered within each document submitted as part of the Proposal. The Proposal must
       also include a Table of Contents and all completed Attachments checked on the Table of
       Contents of the RFP.

2.5.2 An identifiable tab sheet must precede each document submitted as part of the Proposal
       and each section of the Company Profile and Declaration (Attachment A) submitted with
       the Proposal.

2.5.3 The Proposal must include a transmittal letter from Respondent’s Firm/Company
       Principal on the Respondent's official business letterhead; the transmittal letter must
       identify all materials and enclosures being forwarded in response to this RFP, identify
       the individuals involved in the preparation of the Proposal and must be signed by an
       individual authorized to commit the Respondent to the scope of work proposed.

2.6    Response Date and Time

2.6.1 To be considered for selection, the University Contact must receive Proposals time
       stamped by the University Contact no later than the time and date of the submission
       deadline. Submission by fax, e-mail or other electronic transmission is unacceptable.
       The University assumes no responsibility for delays in the U.S. mail or courier systems,
       or delays due to weather conditions.

2.6.2 The University will not accept Proposals received after the submission deadline. Receipt
       by the University of a Proposal after the closing date and time as stated herein shall not
       be construed as acceptance of the Proposal. The University will log late Proposals as to
       date/time received. The University has no obligation to consider or return late Proposals.

2.6.3 If delivery of the Proposal is not made by courier or in person, the use of certified or
       registered mail is suggested. NOTE: Use of certified or registered mail does not relieve
       the Respondent of the responsibility to ensure the Proposal is timely delivered and
       date/time stamped as specified above.

2.7    Use of Pencil; Alterations to Proposal

       The University will reject Proposals made in pencil. The University will also reject
       Proposals with alterations in cost figures used to determine price unless such alterations
       are initialed in ink by the person responsible for or authorized to make decisions as to
       the price quoted or other response made. Respondents shall provide proof of
       authorization to the University upon request. The use of "white-out" is considered an
       alteration.

2.8    Duration of Offer

       Proposals submitted in response to this RFP are irrevocable for 90 days following the
       deadline for submission of Proposals. This period may be extended by written mutual
       agreement between a Respondent and the University.

2.9    Public Information and Trade Secrets; Use of Proposals by the University

2.9.1 All materials submitted in response to this RFP are subject to the provisions of
       Minnesota Statutes, Section 13.591, Subdivision 3(b), which reads as follows:

       “Data submitted by a business to a government entity in response to a request
       for proposal, as defined in section 16C.02, Subdivision 12, are private or
       nonpublic until the responses are opened. Once the responses are opened, the
       name of the responder is read and becomes public. All other data in a
       responder’s response to a request for proposal are private or nonpublic data until
       completion of the evaluation process. For purposes of this section, “completion
       of the evaluation process” means that the government entity has completed
       negotiating the contract with the selected vendor. After a government entity has
       completed the evaluation process, all remaining data submitted by all responders
       are public with the exception of trade secret data as defined and classified in
       section 13.37. A statement by a responder that submitted data are copyrighted
       or otherwise protected does not prevent public access to the data contained in
       the response.

       If all responses to a request for proposal are rejected prior to completion of the
       evaluation process, all data, other than that made public at the response
       opening, remain private or nonpublic until a re-solicitation of the requests for
       proposal results in completion of the evaluation process or a determination is
       made to abandon the purchase. If the rejection occurs after the completion of
       the evaluation process, the data remain public. If a re-solicitation of proposals
       does not occur within one year of the proposal opening date, the remaining data
       become public.”

2.9.2 After completion of the evaluation process, materials received will generally be
       considered public information and will be available for public inspection in accordance
       with the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13, and
       the University's Records and Information Management policies and procedures. By
       submission of a Proposal, Respondent releases the University from any liability resulting
       from the University’s disclosure of such materials and the information contained in them.

2.9.3 If Respondent believes it is submitting information in its Proposal that constitutes 'trade
       secret information" within the meaning of Minnesota Statutes, Section 13.37, the
       Respondent should clearly mark each page containing such information as "trade secret"
       and submit such material in a separate envelope marked "confidential." This envelope
       should also include an attorney’s opinion for each item, indicating the legal basis for
       regarding it as trade secret information. Only legitimate trade secret information within
       the meaning of Minnesota Statutes, Section 13.37, as determined solely by appropriate
       officials of the University, may be protected from disclosure.

2.9.4 By submitting a Proposal, Respondent also agrees to defend any legal or administrative
       action seeking release of materials Respondent believes to be trade secret information
       and to indemnify and hold harmless the University, its Regents, agents and employees
       from any judgments or damages awarded against any of them in favor of any party

                               Construction Manager at Risk

PURPOSE OF REQUEST

The purpose of this RFP is to select a Construction Manager at Risk contractor to provide pre-
construction and construction services for the Project. Said services are identified in this RFP
and defined in the University’s form of construction management agreement, AIA A121- 2003
Construction Manager at Risk, and general conditions, AIA A201- 2007 General Conditions
(together, the “Contract”). The Contract is part of this RFP and is available at
http://www.cppm.umn.edu/proposals.html.          By submitting a proposal, Respondent
acknowledges and agrees that it received, read, understands, and shall be bound by and
comply with the Contract.

The Respondent will provide pre-construction phase and construction phase services; provided,
however, that use of the selected Respondent for construction phase services shall be subject
to the Respondent and the University agreeing to a Guaranteed Maximum Price (“GMP”) for the
work ultimately detailed in the construction documents.

PROJECT DELIVERY DESCRIPTION

The selected Respondent will actively participate with the University, the University’s
Architect/Engineer of Record, and other design consultants in completing the construction
documents based upon the information contained in or referenced in this RFP, including the RFP
Documents listed in Section 1.3 of the RFP.

The selected Respondent will provide competitive, sealed proposals or bids to the University for
all subcontracted work and materials from firms acceptable to the University, except as
otherwise set forth below. The University will determine, with advice from the
Architect/Engineer of Record and the Respondent, which proposals or bids will be accepted for
the Project. The selected Respondent shall supervise and be responsible for all subcontracted
work.

Those portions of the work (as ultimately described in the Construction Documents) that are
self-performed by the selected Respondent’s own forces shall be managed as follows:

       The Respondent shall competitively bid or request proposals from appropriate
       subcontractors, suppliers, and fabricators. The Respondent will be required to
       obtain at least two competitive, sealed proposals or bids for all portions of the
       work that the Respondent desires to self-perform, and shall deliver those
       competitive, sealed proposals or bids, along with the Respondent’s sealed self-
       performed work proposal or bid, to the University. The University shall then
       determine, with advice from the Architect/Engineer of Record and the
       Respondent, which of such proposals or bids will be accepted for the Project.

The University, in its sole discretion, may allow the selected Respondent, as the Contractor, to
self-perform work without obtaining competitive subcontract bids, if (1) the Contractor
specifically identifies the Work the Contractor proposes to perform with its own forces in its
Proposal, (2) the Contractor discloses its hourly wage rates in its Proposal (Attachment D-3), (3)

University Project Number: <<xx-xxx-xx-xxxx>>                            Page 1 of Attachment D
                               Construction Manager at Risk
the Contractor includes the cost of the Work it proposes to perform with its own forces as a
separate line item in the GMP, and (4) the Contractor competitively bids materials and supplies.

Complete “Attachment D-3: Labor Rate for Self-Perform Work” if you propose to self-perform
portions for the Work without competing for the work using a bid or Proposal process.

Program Statement: The selected Respondent will help the University define and prioritize the
scope of work within the allocated budget – working collaboratively and in coordination with the
Architect/Engineer of Record. The Respondent will review and check for constructability,
schedule and budget in the Schematic, Design, Design, Development, and Construction
Documents.     The selected Respondent will manage the Project through all phases of
construction.

After review of all submitted Proposals, the University may require an oral presentation from all
Respondents that have been short-listed. Selected firms should be prepared to discuss and
substantiate any of the areas of the Proposal it has submitted, its own qualifications for the
services required, and any other area of interest relative to its Proposal. Respondents who are
interviewed must have their proposed Project Manager, Project Estimator, and Project
Superintendent in attendance at the oral presentation.

The University reserves the right to negotiate terms and conditions with Respondents. The
University reserves the right to negotiate modifications to a Proposal with a single Respondent
without obligation to negotiate similar modifications with other Respondents. The University
shall have the right to accept or reject any unsolicited modifications to the Proposal.

                                               Notes

                       Compensation: Fees and the Cost of the Work:

Under the Contract, the University will pay the Construction Manager compensation consisting
exclusively of the lesser of the Guaranteed Maximum Price or the sum of (1) Preconstruction
Phase Services Fee, (2) the Cost of the Work and (3) the Construction Manager's Fee.

Section 6.1 of the Contract, “Costs to be Reimbursed,” lists items that are reimbursable as a
“Cost of the Work” during the construction phase. Section 6.2 of the Contract lists items that are
specifically not reimbursable under the Contract.

Section 6.1 includes in its definition of Cost of the Work items that will not be incorporated in the
finished project, which items are commonly referred to as “overhead,” “general conditions,” or
“general requirements.” The Contract requires the Construction Manager to include such items
in the Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal and the Schedule of Values as “General
Requirements.” The University will only pay for General Requirements items identified in
Section 6.1 of the Contract or in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal accepted by the
Owner and incorporated in the Contract by execution of Amendment No. 1 pursuant to Section
2.2.8 of the Contract The University will not pay “overhead,” “general conditions,” or “general
requirements” on a percentage basis.

                                            Cost Limits

The University shall not pay more for any item payable as a Cost of the Work than the lesser of
the actual cost the Construction Manager pays for the item or any cost limit established by any
of the following:

(1) wages and labor rates stated by the Proposer in Attachments D-2 and D-2 of this RFP;
(2) rates stated in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal accepted by the University; or
(3) if not stated in Attachments D-2 and D-2 or in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal,
the fair market value at the place of the Project.

                                       Schedule of Values

The Contract requires the Construction Manager to prepare a schedule of values for the
Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal with separate line items for all Cost of the Work items,
including a separate line item for General Requirements costs, in a CSI-style format acceptable
to the University. See the following page for an example of the mid-level breakdown to be used
for the development of the schedule of values.

                                         Design-Build

PURPOSE OF REQUEST

The purpose of this RFP is to select a Design-Builder to provide pre-construction and
construction phase design and construction services for the Project. Said services are identified
in this RFP and defined in the University’s form of design-build agreement, AIA A141- 2004
Owner Design-Builder, and general conditions, AIA A201- 2007 General Conditions, together
incorporated in this RFP by reference (the “Contract”).         The Contract is available at
http://www.cppm.umn.edu/proposals.html.         By submitting a proposal, Respondent
acknowledges and agrees that it received, read, understands, and shall be bound by and
comply with the Contract.

The Respondent will provide pre-construction phase and construction phase services; provided,
however, that use of the selected Respondent for construction phase services shall be subject
to the Respondent and the University agreeing to a Guaranteed Maximum Price (“GMP”) for the
work ultimately detailed in the construction documents.

PROJECT DELIVERY DESCRIPTION

The selected Respondent will actively participate with the University, and the University’s other
consultants, if any, in completing the design and construction documents based upon the
information contained in or referenced in this RFP, including the RFP Documents listed in
Section 1.3 of the RFP.

The selected Respondent will provide competitive, sealed proposals or bids to the University for
all subcontracted work and materials from firms acceptable to the University, except as
otherwise set forth below. The proposals or bids will be jointly opened by the Respondent and
the University, and reviewed by the University and the Respondent. The University will
determine, with advice from the Respondent, which proposals or bids will be accepted for the
Project. The selected Respondent shall supervise and be responsible for all subcontracted work.

Those portions of the work (as ultimately described in the Construction Documents) that are
self-performed by the selected Respondent’s own forces shall be managed as follows:

       The Respondent shall competitively bid or request proposals from appropriate
       subcontractors, suppliers, and fabricators. The Respondent will be required to
       obtain at least two competitive, sealed proposals or bids for all portions of the
       work that the Respondent desires to self-perform, and shall deliver those
       competitive, sealed proposals or bids, along with the Respondent’s sealed self-
       performed work proposal or bid, to the University. The University shall then
       determine, with advice from the Respondent, which of such proposals or bids will
       be accepted for the Project.

The University, in its sole discretion, may allow the Respondent, as the Contractor, to self-
perform work without obtaining competitive subcontract bids, if (1) the Contractor specifically

University Project Number: <<xx-xxx-xx-xxxx>>                           Page 1 of Attachment D
                                       Design-Build
identifies the Work the Contractor proposes to perform with its own forces in its RFP submittal,
(2) the Contractor discloses its hourly wage rates in the Proposal, (3) the Contractor includes
the cost of the Work it proposes to perform with its own forces as a separate line item in the
GMP, and (4) the Contractor competitively bids materials and supplies.

Complete “Attachment D-3: Labor Rate for Self-Perform Work” if you propose to self-perform
portions for the Work without competing for the work using a bid or Proposal process.

Program Statement: The selected Respondent will help the University define and prioritize the
scope of work within the allocated budget. The Respondent will review and check for
constructability, schedule, and budgeting during the predesign and design phases of the Project
(Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents).               The selected
Respondent will manage the Project through all phases of design and construction.

After review of all submitted Proposals, the University may require an oral presentation from all
Respondents that have been short-listed. Selected firms should be prepared to discuss and
substantiate any of the areas of the Proposal it has submitted, its own qualifications for the
services required, and any other area of interest relative to its Proposal. Respondents who are
interviewed must have their proposed Project Architect, Project Engineers, Project Manager,
Project Estimator, and Project Superintendent in attendance at the oral presentation.

The University reserves the right to negotiate terms and conditions with Respondents. The
University reserves the right to negotiate modifications to a Proposal with a single Respondent
without obligation to negotiate similar modifications with other Respondents. The University
shall have the right to accept or reject any unsolicited modifications to the Proposal.

                                               Notes

                       Compensation: Fees and the Cost of the Work:

Under the Contract, the University will pay the Design-Builder compensation consisting
exclusively of the lesser of the Guaranteed Maximum Price or the sum of (1) Preconstruction
Phase Services Fee, (2) the Cost of the Work and (3) the Design-Builder's Fee.

Section B.2 of the Contract, “Costs to be Reimbursed,” lists items that are reimbursable as a
“Cost of the Work” during the construction phase. Section B.3 of the Contract lists items that
are specifically not reimbursable under the Contract.

Section B2 includes in its definition of Cost of the Work items that will not be incorporated in the
finished project, which items are commonly referred to as “overhead,” “general conditions,” or
“general requirements.” The Contract requires the Design-Builder to include such items in the
Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal and the Schedule of Values as “General Requirements.”
The University will only pay for General Requirements items identified in Section B.2 of the
Contract or in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal accepted by the Owner and
incorporated in the Contract pursuant to Section A.3.2.5 and A.15 of the Contract. The
University will not pay “overhead,” “general conditions,” or “general requirements” on a
percentage basis.

                                            Cost Limits

The University shall not pay more for any item payable as a Cost of the Work than the lesser of
the actual cost the Design-Builder pays for the item or any cost limit established by any of the
following:

(1) wages and labor rates stated by the Proposer in Attachments D-2 and D-2 of this RFP;
(2) rates stated in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal accepted by the University; or
(3) if not stated in Attachments D-2 and D-2 or in the final Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal,
the fair market value at the place of the Project.

                                       Schedule of Values

The Contract requires the Design-Builder to prepare a schedule of values for the Guaranteed
Maximum Price proposal with separate line items for all Cost of the Work items, including a
separate line item for General Requirements costs, in a CSI-style format acceptable to the
University. See the following page for an example of the mid-level breakdown to be used for the
development of the schedule of values.
