RE: Capital Improvement Plan (CIP):
DATE: January 1, 2017
Dear Potential District Vendors:
Thank you for your interest in assisting
the District with the implementation of our 2017 – 2021 Capital Improvement
Program (CIP). The format of the 5-Year CIP was designed to provide more
information to our vendor community, including Small Business Enterprise (SBE),
Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Woman Business Enterprise (WBE)
companies that participate in the District’s Business Opportunity Program, to
allow you to better plan your pursuits. This report is organized by Program
Area (Wastewater Treatment Plants, CSOs, Collection Systems, and District Wide),
and provides key schedule milestones (Design Award and Construction Award). It
is our hope that you will find this more succinct format useful in your pursuit
of District work over the next several years.
As of 1/1/17, the anticipated construction
project awards for the 2017-2021 periods are valued at $ 1,320,992,937.
The breakdown of the anticipated number of projects and contract award
values by program area:
Treatment Plants $126,563,337 (10%)
CSO Program $1,054,420,160 (80%)
District Wide $110,772,273 (8%)
The table above is updated
monthly during the year to reflect the updated status of these projects
The District’s capital
investment over the next five years is substantial and will require the work of
many to achieve. To assist in delivering this aggressive CIP, the District has
put into place numerous workflows and process improvements. Over the next five
years, these improvements will support expedited Requests-for-Proposals (RFPs),
preparation of bid documents, and streamline construction administration of our
encourage all potential vendors to visit our website (http://www.neorsd.org) to obtain critical
