JPS Facilities and Operations issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and Statements of Interest on October 2, 2018, to architectural and engineering firms that may be interested in rendering professional design services for the 2018 Bond Construction Program. The response was impressive. Over 45 architects and engineers attended a pre-submittal conference on October 11. Subsequently, 18 firms submitted RFQs and Statements of Interest. The District has begun the selection process and is presently issuing contracts.

The District will continue making architectural and engineering selections for Phase I of the upcoming Bond Construction Program, which is set to start in January. Construction activities are expected to begin in mid-January at various school locations. Phase I will consist of approximately 120 projects.
