Submitted Questions & Answers

I got a message that said that the below email was undeliverable to the email address mentioned in the RFP (sunlife.proposal@slfhc.org).

There was a typo in the email address provided in the RFP and on the Sun Life website. The correct address is now listed on the website.  Your proposal and any questions related to the RFP should be sent to sunlife.proposals@slfhc.org.  

In Section 6 of the selection process, under 6.4: It says “Quantity and relevance of any objections to the AIA B101_2017 Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, as modified.” Can you provide us with this exhibit/contract sample for us to base our comments?

We have removed this exhibit from the Architectural and Engineering RFP .  Please disregard any reference to the exhibit and respondents do not need to address this in their response to Section  6.  The Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect will be provided for review and comments to the firm selected for this project.

Is it possible to share with us any questions that have already been answered?

A list of the questions we have received for this RFP with responses will be posted on our website by the COB on Monday, November 14, 2022.  The website will be updated as needed with additional questions/answers received after 11/14/22.

Is use of the AIA 141 contract instead of the one referenced in the RFP acceptable?

We will make that decision once we have selected a firm for this project.

Under section 3.0 Scope of Services Architectural / Engineering Responsibilities civil engineering is not listed. Can you confirm if this will be part of the A&E scope to be included in the proposal or will this be covered up section 3.2 Owner Responsibilities?

Yes. Civil Engineering will be part of the A & E to be included in the proposal.

What is the last date to submit any questions regarding the RFP?

What is your construction budget for the project? Or will this be developed in the initial preconstruction phase?
