Through a Request for Qualifications, the Municipal Housing Authority of the City of Utica, New York (UMHA) invites individuals and firms experienced in multifamily real estate construction, renovation, and new development to submit evidence of qualifications, outlining in detail their ability to serve as general contractors for UMHA’s Rental Assistance Demonstration Project, a major multi-year public housing redevelopment initiative involving a total of 847 units at various developments in the City of Utica, New York. UMHA reserves the right, on its own behalf and for any of its affiliates, to choose one or more general contractors for the project(s) and to divide the project(s) according to phase and housing development.  Applicants may apply as a general contractor for all of the projects, or specific developments.  The selection process involves two distinct stages.  In the first stage, applicants will submit responses to this RFQ. These submissions will be reviewed to qualify applicants for the pool of contractors eligible to provide general contracting services to UMHA on the Project. Qualified Contractors in the Pool will be eligible to provide general construction services for up to five years on various developments and phases of the Project.  In the second stage, UMHA will solicit quotes for specific services from the Qualified Contractors in the Pool.  Only Qualified Contractors in the Pool can provide Bids to UMHA for the solicited services.  UMHA will then award the construction contract to one or more of the Qualified Contractors who submitted a Bid, resulting in the selected Qualified Contractor executing a construction contract with an affiliate of UMHA for the solicited services.  As a result of this process, UMHA anticipates one or more contracts to be awarded to Qualified Contractors in the Pool.  UMHA has the sole option and discretion to solicit new applicants to this RFQ at any time, including during the life of a construction contract which has already been signed with a Qualified Contractor. The successful applicant(s) will serve as general contractor(s) for one or more project(s).This is an expedited procurement action.  Interested applicants should use the following link to download and respond to the Request for Qualifications:
