The objective of the project is to protect Bay Division Pipeline Nos. 3 and 4 from future loads imparted by Union Pacific Railroad’s proposed new tracks by slip lining the pipelines with welded steel pipe at the railroad crossing at Lafayette Street in Santa Clara. The work is to be performed in Santa Clara County, California.

Bid discounts may be applied as per San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 14B. The Local Business Enterprise (LBE) subcontracting requirement is 12.00%. The LBE subcontracting requirement can only be met with CMD certified San Francisco Micro and Small-LBEs and SFPUC Micro & Small-LBEs. The LBE subcontractor participation requirement for this Contract is below 20%, as the work is highly specialized because the main scope of work is to procure/fabricate large diameter steel pipe and slipline two large diameter pipelines. Prime and Joint Venture level LBE participation cannot be counted towards meeting any of the LBE subcontracting requirement(s). LBE subcontractors must be certified with CMD in the scope of work they are being listed to perform. All Bidders shall submit documented Good Faith efforts with their Bids as directed on CMD Form 2B, except those who exceed the above-stated subcontracting  requirement(s) by at least 35%. Refer to CMD Attachment 6. Failure to comply with Chapter 14B requirements may result in a Bid being deemed non-responsive and ineligible for Contract award. Please contact Kate Svyatets at 925-967-2154 or for further information. Subcontracting opportunities may include, but not limited, to the following major types of work: earthwork, demolition, pipeline installation/ slip lining, welding, coating work, and trucking. Please refer to Section 01 60 00 in the Specifications regarding the purchase of equipment to achieve the LBE subcontracting participation requirement.
