Design - Build Projects

CDB forms and manuals related to DB projects have been added to the Reference Library. These include the Standard Documents for Design-Build Projects (SD-DB) which is the basic contract (boilerplate) for CDB design-build projects and forms related to the DB RFP as well as forms needed for administering design and construction phases.

CDB Update (Revised 3/31/2020)

The recent health crisis has caused some changes to CDB operations and ongoing projects.  Due to concern about the further transmission of the COVID-19 virus, CDB has temporarily suspended most construction activities on CDB projects.  Design work not performed at a State facility can still continue, if it can be performed in a way that does not jeopardize the health of the design professionals working on the project. The safety of our staff, vendors, and the public at large is our top priority.  If you are a CDB vendor with an active CDB project you should have already received specific information about your project(s).  At this time, we are uncertain of the length of this temporary suspension of most project activities, but we are hopeful all project activities will resume soon.   As this situation evolves, we will provide new updated information here on our website.

CDB continues to recognize that during these unprecedented times, the ability of our valued partners to respond to procurement bulletins may be impacted as companies and their employees adjust in response to COVID-19 recommendations.  Because of this CDB has suspended many open procurement actions. This includes all projects out for bidding and posted in the Bid Information Newsletter (BIN). Projects that have been advertised in the Professional Services Bulletin (PSB) are once again moving forward on revised schedules.  To verify the current status of Design-Build RFP’s that are active please check the individual projects pages in the Design-Build section of our web. Where possible these procurements will be resumed through the issuance of Addenda or Amendments as appropriate and submittal dates will be adjusted to allow adequate time for preparation of bids and submittals.

As the COVID-19 virus continues to bring uncertainty to the world around us, please note that the Capital Development Board stands with you. Thank you for your continued patience as we work through many difficult issues.
