On July 20, 2015, Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) reached yet another important milestone with the release of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the private sector partner for the Gordie Howe International Bridge. The RFQ is the first stage in a two-stage procurement process to select a private sector partner to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the project.
Respondents to the RFQ will be assessed based on experience and qualifications to deliver and finance large and complex infrastructure projects. Only teams short-listed from this process will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals – the second stage of the procurement process.
The RFQ is the most significant procurement milestone to date and is a result of countless hours of work by WDBA and its partners on both sides of the border.
The RFQ was posted on MERX and may be viewed at www.merx.com.
