Bid Process Overview

Request for Proposals (RFP) Process

On March 9, 2012 the Final Request for Proposals (RFP) was made available to the four firms on the short list who are eligible to submit proposals to design and build the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

To continue to promote an open and transparent procurement process, this RFP document is being provided for informational purposes only.  No public comments relating to the RFP are being solicited or responded to. The Public Comment period is closed.

Section 1503 of SAFETEA-LU (August 10, 2005) revised design-build regulations to provide for increased flexibility in initiating the design-build procurement process as it relates to the completion of the environmental review process. This flexibility has been consistent with the Administration's Every Day Counts Initiative, which encourages conducting project delivery concurrently to the extent allowable. It allowed State transportation departments to issue request for proposals and preliminary design work under design-build contracts prior to the completion of the NEPA process. This revision also allows states to realize sooner the advantages of time and cost savings and improved quality for projects that use design-build procurement. Since the RFP has been issued prior to the conclusion of the NEPA process, the document informs the proposers that no commitment will be made to any alternative under evaluation in the NEPA process, including the no-build alternative. The document includes appropriate provisions ensuring that all environmental and mitigation measures identified in the NEPA document will be implemented.
