California High-Speed Rail Authority Industry Forum for Request for Qualifications for Track and Systems RFQ No. HSR 19-13

Jul 19 2019 | Sacramento

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) is seeking a design-build-maintain contractor to submit qualifications to bid on RFQ No. HSR 19-13. The scope of work will include design and construction of trackwork, railway systems, electrification, as well as testing and commissioning.

The Track and Systems contract, as proposed, will also include a 30-year term of maintenance for both the underlying civil works and track and systems work, which would include construction of necessary maintenance facilities. The Track and Systems Contractor would perform interface and integration duties with respect to the Authority’s other Contractors. As proposed, the Track and System work would be issued through multiple Notices to Proceed (NTP), ranging from San Francisco to the Central Valley.

The Authority started the process of finding a contractor for this construction phase by formally issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for design-build-maintain services on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Firms will have until Thursday, September 5, 2019, 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time to submit their statements of qualifications.

Please join representatives from the Authority at this Industry Forum on Monday, August 5 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Department of Health Care Auditorium located at 1500 Captiol Avenue in downtown Sacramento. Firms will have the opportunity to network and learn more about the Track and Systems procurement.
