There will be no LBE bid discounts for this contract. The Local Business Enterprise (LBE) subcontracting requirement is 8.00%. The LBE subcontracting requirement can only be met with CMD certified San Francisco Micro and Small-LBEs and SFPUC Micro & Small-LBEs. The 8% LBE subcontracting requirement is established because the scope requires highly skilled and/or specialty niche trades with limited LBE availability, such as, installation of large diameter pipes (up to 8 feet in diameter), valves and appurtenances; installation of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen storage and conveyance facilities, ozonation generation equipment, ozone destruct equipment, and instrumentation and control systems; and, installation of large and complex structures, reinforced drilled piers for structural slope stability and a microwave radio tower, with associated equipment. 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.
