Procurement begins for $1.5bn Californian rail scheme

Procurement is now under way for a US$1.5bn project to design and build a new light rail extension in California.

The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority has issued the request for qualifications (RFQ) for the design-build team that will build the six-station light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair.

The RFQ is the first of a two-step, competitive process that will result in a shortlist of the most qualified teams to compete for the work.

"As the first Measure M-funded rail project out of the gate, we know that interest in the project is very high in the industry," said construction authoritity CEO Habib Balian. "We have developed a procurement process that will provide the authority the best contractor for the best price; but it starts by identifying the most qualified teams and focusing our search on those teams."

Statements of qualifications in response to the RFQ are due in January 2018. Teams shortlisted through the RFQ process will receive the request for proposals (RFP), to be released in spring 2018.
