Project Name: Owner Agent Services FY 19-20
Project Location: Various
Project Number: DNR-190009
Scope of Project: A. Project Description The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) intends to select a firm to provide Owner Agent services as it continues a multi-year Capital Improvement Program. Owner Agent Services, in relation to ODNR’s needs, are intended to provide support and assistance to the Division of Engineering (DOE) as it conducts assessments, master planning, strategic planning, design, bidding/procurement, construction administration, and close-out on construction projects undertaken by the various ODNR Divisions, i.e. Parks & Watercraft, Wildlife, Forestry. ODNR’s Capital Improvement Program covers the spectrum from engineering-based projects such as utility infrastructure upgrades, water and wastewater treatment plant rehabilitations, parking/roadway upgrades and replacements, dam and canal rehabilitations, and shoreline protection embankments to architectural-based projects such as administrative office, lodge, cabin, campground, restroom, and storage structure construction and renovations. Projects are located at various sites around the state including state parks, state nature preserves, state forests, state wildlife areas, and associated support/operating facilities for ODNR programs and regulatory agencies. Projects use a variety of construction delivery methods, including General Contracting (GC), Construction Manager-at-Risk (CMR), and/or Design-Build (DB). Program level services provided by the Owner Agent include compiling, tracking, and reporting information regarding individual projects and then assimilating that information into a program-wide tracking and reporting system, preferably utilizing a web-based platform compatible with State of Ohio IT requirements and security protocols. DOE utilizes readilyavailable basic software programs such as Microsoft Excel and Access to gather and track information and any systemwide platform the Owner Agent proposes to use must interface with those programs. All data compiled and tracked shall remain the property of the state during and at the conclusion of the Owner Agent contract period and shall be downloaded and easily convertible for use with similar database systems. Planning and Design level services include conducting/reviewing facility condition assessments, providing/reviewing estimates of construction costs, constructability reviews of design documents, project schedule reviews, assisting DOE project managers with design-related paperwork and project monitoring through meeting attendance and site visits. Bidding/Procurement and Construction level services include assisting in bid packaging, bidder reviews, contract compliance (preferably via a web-based software platform that captures certified payroll), attendance at progress meetings, field reports, contractor pay app review, coordinating materials between the owner, the contractor, and the design team, assisting with final paperwork to close out projects, and any additional administrative support as needed. All firms submitting a statement of qualifications will be eligible for award of contract for the period beginning on or around September 1, 2018 and ending June 30, 2020 with possible two-year renewal eligibility. The Owner Agent consultant cannot be an affiliate or sub-consultant of any GC, CMR or DB for the ODNR projects during the term of the owner agent agreement.

Columbus, OH 43229, travel within the state will likely be necessary to complete the services. For the purposes of scoring proximity to project site, the ODNR Fountain Square complex will be considered the project site. B.
