DDC uses open Requests for Proposals (RFP) for most of our design and construction management contracts. RFPs are open to all interested firms. Notices of these RFPs are published in The City Record and online. Specific notifications also are made available to firms on the City's centralized vendor lists. We encourage all interested firms to become a centralized vendor by completing the NYC-FMS Vendor Enrollment Application.

Consultants

The majority of DDC's Public Building's design work is issued under contracts known collectively as the 6/20, or previously as the 8/20. These contracts are used for all DDC projects up to $50 million in construction value, with the exception of certain engineering and specialty work. Currently, the 6/20 consists of two groups of requirement contracts - a group of 6 firms hired to work on design projects where the construction value is between $15 million and $50 million, and a group of 20 small firms who are hired to work on design projects up to $15 million in construction value.

Consultant Forms


Subconsultants

Subconsultants do not need to be prequalified. When DDC selects a consultant, the strength of the entire team (including subconsultants) included in the applicant's proposal is evaluated. Because of this, firms seeking to work as subconsultants on specific projects and on requirement contracts must generally join up with the prime firms preparing their responses to DDC Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
