Procedure for selecting finalists from among design-build teams that submitted preliminary proposals.
1.The Department shall select at least three but not more than five finalists from among the design-build teams that submitted preliminary proposals. If the Department does not receive at least three preliminary proposals from design-build teams that the Department determines to be qualified pursuant to this section and NRS 408.3884, the Department may not contract with a design-build team for the design and construction of the project.
2.The Department shall select finalists pursuant to subsection 1 by:
(a)Verifying that each design-build team which submitted a preliminary proposal satisfies the requirements of NRS 408.3884;
(b)Conducting an evaluation of the qualifications of each design-build team that submitted a preliminary proposal, including, without limitation, an evaluation of:
(1)The professional qualifications and experience of the members of the design-build team;
(2)The performance history of the members of the design-build team concerning other recent, similar projects completed by those members, if any;
(3)The safety programs established and the safety records accumulated by the members of the design-build team;
(4)The proposed plan of the design-build team to manage the design and construction of the project that sets forth in detail the ability of the design-build team to design and construct the project; and
(5)The degree to which the preliminary proposal is responsive to the requirements of the Department for the submittal of a preliminary proposal; and
(c)Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, assigning, without limitation, a relative weight of 5 percent to the possession of both a certificate of eligibility to receive a preference in bidding on public works by the prime contractor on the design-build team and a certificate of eligibility to receive a preference when competing for public works by all persons who hold a certificate of registration to practice architecture or a license as a professional engineer on the design-build team. If any federal statute or regulation precludes the granting of federal assistance or reduces the amount of that assistance for a particular public work because of the provisions of this paragraph relating to a preference in bidding on public works or a preference when competing for public works, those provisions of this paragraph do not apply insofar as their application would preclude or reduce federal assistance for that public work.
3.After the selection of finalists pursuant to this section, the Department shall make available to the public the results of the evaluations of preliminary proposals conducted pursuant to paragraph (b) of subsection 2 and identify which of the finalists, if any, received an assignment of 5 percent pursuant to paragraph (c) of subsection 2.
