An adequate quality control program, and ability to manage work capacity to accomplish multiple large projects concurrently within the required timeframe are desired.

The Government will be seeking the most highly qualified firm to perform the required services, based on the demonstrated competence and qualifications, in accordance with the selection criteria and the provisions of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 36.6, Architect-Engineer Services.
