Specific Scope of Services includes providing design, construction administration and related supplemental services on an as-needed basis for mechanical and electrical engineering type projects located throughout the Parish for an approximate two-year period.
 
Projects may include the following supplemental services:  surveying and geotechnical.
 
The firms submitting a Statement of Qualifications (TEC Questionnaire) must identify all sub-consultant firms which they expect to use to provide professional services, and submit a Statement of Qualifications (TEC Questionnaire) for each sub-consultant firm. (Refer to Jefferson Parish Code Ordinance, Section 2-928).
 
All services shall be provided on an “as-needed” basis, and there shall be no guarantee as to the amount of work the firm or firms will be given during the term of the contract.
 
The Council, at its discretion, may choose one or more qualified firms to provide the services.
 
Compensation
 
Compensation for the required services will be made on an hourly rate basis or a fixed fee basis, or a combination of both, depending on scope and complexity of the work.  The Parish reserves the right to determine the method of payment (hourly or fixed) for each individual assignment.
 
For hourly rate work, the firm shall be compensated by the appropriate Jefferson Parish Department on the basis of their certified and itemized salary costs plus a fee to cover overhead costs and profit in accordance with guidelines established in Attachment “A” to the Standard Professional Services Agreement for Jefferson Parish.  A copy of Attachment “A” may be obtained by calling the Jefferson Parish Department of Capital Projects at (504) 736-6833.
 
For fixed fee work, the fee shall be negotiated with the firm by the appropriate Jefferson Parish Department and shall be mutually agreeable to both parties.
 
Compensation for supplemental services (surveying and geotechnical), if required, shall be in the form of a “lump sum” for each supplemental service, which shall be mutually agreeable to the Parish and to the Consultant.
 
All costs associated with this project shall be subject to Jefferson Parish review and approval.
 
A maximum yearly cap established by Jefferson Parish based on anticipated needs for these services shall be $500,000.00, and the established cap shall not be increased without Council approval.
