Request for Proposals of Design and Construction Services

Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design and construction opportunities within RWJBarnabas Health (RWJBH) facilities is a formal solicitation issued by RWJBH to invite qualified firms to submit proposals. This RFP process is critical in selecting design and construction teams that can meet the complex needs and stringent standards of our healthcare environments. This process aims to foster competitive bidding, ensuring that the selected firm is capable of delivering a project that aligns with RWJBH’s vision, budget, and timeline, ultimately enhancing patient care and operational effectiveness. RWJBH encourages minority and disadvantaged business enterprises to participate in the process.

Prequalification

Prequalification for design and construction services is a critical process aimed at ensuring that only qualified firms with the requisite healthcare experience, expertise, and resources are considered for such specialized and sensitive work. This process involves an evaluation of a firm's past performance on similar projects, technical capabilities, financial stability, and compliance with industry standards and regulations. By prequalifying firms, RWJBH can mitigate risks, ensure compliance with stringent healthcare construction standards, and ultimately secure a high-quality outcome that meets the specific needs and safety requirements of RWJBH facilities. This prequalification process is essential for fostering a competitive, transparent, and efficient selection process that prioritizes patient safety, operational efficiency, and the delivery of advanced healthcare facilities.
