For Public Works or Improvements necessary to maintain or repair facilities and real property under the jurisdiction of the Real Estate Division ("RED"), RED may award master agreement Contracts for services under Section 6.65, or may award master agreement Contracts for work to be performed on an "if-and-as-needed" basis, to qualified construction Contractors in conformance with the following procedures:
(a) Contract Award. The Director of RED may award master agreement Contracts, on an "if-and-as-needed" basis to Contractors who can establish all of the licensing, qualifications, experience, and certifications, as required by the RED Director. A Contractor may apply for a master agreement under this Section 6.70 by providing RED with a statement of its experience and qualifications and other information as requested by RED. Within 60 days of receiving such information, RED shall advise the applicant of its eligibility for an award of a master agreement.
(b) Contract Terms. Master agreements awarded under this Section 6.70 shall conform to the requirements of Section 6.22 and shall conform to Administrative Code Chapter 14B, as applicable. Master agreements shall provide for an expiration term of not more than five years from the date of Award, including all modifications. All master agreements shall provide for a maximum total dollar value of work each Contractor is authorized to perform during the contract period. No master agreement may be modified to exceed 150% of the original contract amount. Master agreements shall contain no minimum dollar amount. Master agreements shall provide that RED may assign work on a task order basis, "if-and-as-needed," through competition among master agreement Contractors.
(c) Task Order Competitive Solicitation. To assign work under master agreement Contracts, RED shall solicit Quotations from no fewer than three qualified master agreement Contractors. Solicitations shall conform to Section 6.21, except that neither a published advertisement nor bid security shall be required. Solicitations shall include a description of the proposed task order scope of work including plans or specifications, if any, and may include provisions for liquidated damages for delay if and as appropriate to the particular project. Responsive Quotations must include subcontractor listing, if any, in conformance with subsection 6.21(a)(9).
(d) Task Order Award. The Director of RED shall issue a task order for the performance of work under a master agreement to the Contractor submitting the lowest responsive Quotation. In the event that RED is unable to obtain three Quotations, the Director of RED shall base the Award on the Quotation or Quotations received. If the Director of RED believes that the public interest would best be served by accepting other than the lowest Quotation, he or she is hereby authorized to accept the Quotation that in his or her discretion will best serve the public interest.
(e) Task Order Terms. No task order or multiple task orders for any single Public Work, whether in one phase or multiple phases, and whether under this Section 6.70 or for services under Section 6.65, shall cumulatively exceed the Threshold Amount, including all modifications. The Director of RED may issue or modify a task order to exceed the foregoing limitation only upon the Director's written determination establishing the urgency of the work and the justification for proceeding under this Section 6.70, rather than through San Francisco Public Works, in conformance with Section 6.2.
