Emergency Contracts - Solicitation of Interest

The Office of General Services Design & Construction (D&C) Group awards approximately 500 emergency contracts annually. Emergency contracts may be awarded for as much as $300,000. Such contracts are of short duration and are usually awarded on a cost-plus basis.

The Public Buildings Law requires D&C to establish a list of pre-qualified contractors who are interested in bidding on emergency work. The list is organized by trade interest and geographical area.

Bids are solicited from this list on a rotational basis. When an emergency occurs, bids are solicited by phone and require an immediate response. The selected contractor must be able to commence work within four (4) hours of the “Notice to Proceed.”

It is the policy of the state and the Office of General Services to encourage Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise (MWBE) participation in the Emergency Program.

For additional information about this program, please click on the following link: How to Become Qualified for Emergency Contracting Opportunities.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN EMERGENCY CONTRACTING!
