Proposals for the Portland International Airport Concourses B and D Passenger Boarding Bridge Replacement will be received by the Manager, Contracts and Procurement, of The Port of Portland, 7200 N.E. Airport Way, 8th Floor, Portland, Oregon 97218 (mailing address: Post Office Box 3529, Portland, Oregon 97208) until, but not after, 3 p.m. September 14, 2016.
Description of Work:
Removal of existing passenger boarding bridges (PBBs) at Concourses B and D2 and replacement with new Port-furnished PBBs. The work includes installation and commissioning of the PBBs, ground power units, pre-conditioned air units, conductors, breakers, disconnects, and potable water cabinets. In addition to the PBBs, the Port will also furnish ground power units, and pre-conditioned air units for installation by the Contractor.
The work of this contract does not involve construction, reconstruction, or major renovation on real property, so this contract is not a “public improvement contract” under ORS Chapter 279C. However, the Port has determined that it is in the Port’s best interests to require the contractor to comply with certain elements of ORS Chapter 279C, including bonding as provided for under ORS 279C.380. Accordingly the Port has elected to invoke applicable provisions of ORS Chapter 279C where stated, but otherwise the provisions of ORS Chapter 279C do not apply to the work under this contract except where specifically noted herein.
No scheduled pre-proposal meeting will be held. However, proposers may use the Q&A submission feature in the Port’s online bidding system to request a meeting.
The contractor or a subcontractor need not be licensed for asbestos work under ORS 468A.720.
Contractors, subcontractors, consultants, and suppliers are strongly encouraged to register through the Port’s online bidding system, which can be accessed at under “Business Opportunities.” All firms can view current business opportunities. Registered firms may receive electronic notification of Port solicitations, and have access to view, download, or request copies of solicitations, addenda, and solicitation-holders lists.
Questions must be submitted electronically using the “Q&A” feature in the Port’s online bidding system.
The project manual and drawings may be examined at Port offices (address above); however hard copies of drawings and specifications are not available directly from the Port. Registered firms may download the project manual and drawings or order them for the cost of reproduction through the Port’s online bidding system.
Proposals may be rejected if not in compliance with specified procedures and requirements. Any or all Proposals may be rejected if in the public interest to do so. Proposer compliance includes the following:
A. All Proposals must be accompanied by proposal security made payable to The Port of Portland in an amount equal to at least 10 percent of the total amount proposed.
B. No Proposal will be considered unless it contains a statement by the proposer as a part of the Proposal that the provisions of ORS 279C.800 to 279C.870 (regarding payment of applicable prevailing wage rates on public works projects over $50,000) are to be complied with. Current wage rates determined by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) may be obtained from BOLI’s web site at
C. No Proposal will be considered unless the proposer is registered with the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board to the extent required by ORS Chapter 701 prior to submitting a Proposal.
Apprentice Opportunities on Port Projects: The Port requires contractors to provide on-the-job training opportunities for approved and registered apprentices on construction projects over $500,000. The Port’s overall target for registered apprentice participation is 15 percent of total labor hours. The Port supports efforts to build a diverse and skilled workforce for the construction industry and to increase the representation of diverse apprentices on Port projects.
Small Business Participation Program: The Port is committed to increasing small business participation in Port contracts. The Port’s small business participation goal for this contract is 4 percent of the total amount proposed. The proposer’s ability to meet this small business participation goal will be considered during the Port’s evaluation of proposals. See the Instructions to Proposers for more information related to small business participation.
