Design-Build and P3

October 2016 Update: Design Build/P3 Dual Track Procurement Process for Expedited Purified Water Program (Program)

Santa Clara Valley Water District - Expedited Purified Water Program
The Expedited Purified Water Program (Program) is part of the District’s strategy to respond to the current drought and is consistent with Board direction to expand the County’s water supply. As currently conceived, the Program could provide up to 45,000 acre-feet per year (AFY) of purified water for indirect and/or direct potable reuse to supplement groundwater recharge from other existing sources, such as imported and locally-stored water supply.

The Program consists of several key components:

    1.  Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC) Expansion; 
    2.  Ford Recharge Ponds Indirect Potable Reuse Facility; 
    3.  Mid-Basin Injection Wells; 
    4.  Los Gatos Recharge Ponds; 
    5.  Westside Injection Wells (or central pipeline direct potable reuse as a future alternative); 
    6.  Sunnyvale Indirect Potable Reuse.

October 2016 Update: Design Build/P3 Dual Track Procurement Process for Expedited Purified Water Program (Program) 

As reflected in the individual sections below, a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process was undertaken between January and June 2016. The list of respondents and final shortlists for two design-build RFQs and one P3 RFQ were posted in April and June, 2016, respectively.

The Board’s Recycled Water Committee (RW Committee), comprised of 3 of the 7 Board members, held meetings on the following dates in 2016:

1. March 1
2. May 12
3. July 9
4. July 19
5. September 7

Staff has provided Program development updates to the RW Committee at most of these meetings (click on dates above for Meeting Agendas and Minutes). At the May 12, 2016 RW Committee Meeting, staff recommended, and Committee members agreed, that one procurement track should be selected by the full Board before Requests for Proposals (RFPs) are published to the shortlisted entities.

At the September 7, 2016 RW Committee Meeting, staff presented both qualitative and quantitative evaluation and analyses of the Design Build and P3 delivery methods, and made a staff recommendation to choose the Progressive Design Build method. The Committee considered staff’s evaluation and recommendation, and directed staff to make the presentation to the full Board on September 20, 2016.

The full Board received staff’s presentation and heard from representatives of the two shortlisted P3 entities. The Board made no decision, but directed staff to return at a later date and to arrange for representatives of other water agencies who have used either a DB or P3 delivery method on one or more of their capital projects to attend this next Board meeting. The Board desires to hear directly from these agencies as to the motivators/circumstances/reasons for the choice(s) of delivery method they made and their experience with the project’s process and outcome.

Staff is in the process of arranging another special Board meeting, which will likely be held in early 2017. If the Board chooses a project delivery method in early 2017, release of the RFPs to the appropriate shortlist(s) will follow in 2 to 4 months.


Design Build and P3 Dual-Track Procurement Process


The District plans to solicit Statements of Qualification in parallel for both the progressive design-build (PDB) project delivery approach and for the public-private-partnership (P3) project delivery method.

Progressive Design-Build (PDB) Procurement Process

The District plans to solicit two Statements of Qualification (SOQ) for the following Program components using progressive design-build (PDB) project delivery: 

    1.  91884009 – Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC) Expansion 
    2.  91384001 – Purified Water Pipeline – from SVAWPC to Los Gatos Recharge Ponds

Soliciting two separate SOQs will enable selection of the most qualified teams for each Program component and will spread the design and construction work among various interested firms. The following components have been completed for the procurement process: 

    1.  Solicitation for PDB SOQs for two Program components – January 2016 
    2.  SOQ evaluations and final shortlisting of up to three qualifying entities for each Program component – June 2016 
   
Public-Private Partnership (P3) Procurement Process

In parallel with the above-described PDB procurement process, the District plans to solicit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) for a public-private partnership (P3) project delivery approach for the Program.

The following components have been completed for the procurement process: 

    1.  Solicitation for P3 SOQs for the Program – January 2016 
    2.  SOQ evaluations and final shortlisting of up to three qualifying entities – June 2016
