New Construction Templates

The City has been working with internal and external stakeholders to develop and pilot a new suite of construction procurement documents.

As the documents are finalized, we will release samples to internal and external stakeholders for information.

 

Projects currently underway will continue on the old documents. The transition from old to new documents will continue until the end of 2016, at which time we will stop using the old documents.

The first documents to be released include:

 

Future construction procurement documents in development include:

  • Request for Standing Offer Construction
  • Request for Proposals Non-Binding Design/Build Construction

Front end documents and forms

Instructions for using The City's Front End Documents and Forms are detailed in Guidelines for the Preparation of Tender Documents for Construction Projects (above).

It is the responsibility of The City project manager or consultant to assemble the tender package and provide completed copies of all of the front end documents and forms listed below.
