GMP Exhibit
Tampa’s Equal Business Opportunity Program Procedures for GMP Contracts
The City of Tampa’s Equal Business Opportunity Program (EBO) requires setting a
construction subcontract goal on each GMP under the CM /or D-Build delivery system.
Prior to the time construction subcontract goals are set, the Construction Manager (CM)
or the Design-Builder (D-B) provides information on subcontract packages planned for
the construction phase(s) and their sequencing.
(Ref: use Detailed GMP Estimate and MBD Form-80 PTW)
The CM (or D-B) participates in a meeting wherein the City will establish narrowly-
tailored project goals for SLBE and/or W/MBE subcontractor participation on the project.
(Ref: use MBD Form-70)
For each subcontracting package to be bid, the CM (or D-B) confirms with the MBD
Office, the City’s minimum contact list of available SLBE and/or W/MBE firms to be
solicited. Note: strategic, extensive outreach is the CM/DB’s responsibility (i.e. GFECP)
(Ref: use Minimum Contact List provided w/final Project EBO Determination Goal)
The CM (or D-B) documents the notification of all potential subcontractors, including the
SLBE or W/MBE firms identified above, i.e. minimum contact list of certified firms.
(Ref: use DMI 10-20 for construction phase Solicitation/Utilization outcomes)
The CM (or D-B) receives, opens, and tabulates subcontract bid results. The City,
including representatives of the managing department and the MBD Office, may be
present for the bid openings or to review the bids submitted.
(Ref: use MBD Form-50 GFECP outreach w/documentation)
The CM (or D-B) provides to the City, a tabulation of all bids received and its
determination of the lowest responsive/responsible bidder. If bids received exceed
contracted Guaranteed Maximum Price, CM (or D-B) advises City as to how they will
proceed. If re-bidding is selected, notification at least equal to the original solicitation
will occur. (Ref: Reaffirm EBO Outreach)
As all subcontracts are executed, final copies are provided to the City. Where
participation is achieved via sub-subcontractors and/or suppliers, the CM (or D-B)
provides the City and MBD with copy of executed agreement or purchase order as
documentation. (Ref: use MBD Form-40 LOIs execute “Letters-of-Intent)
During construction, monitoring activities may including but may not be limited to,
subcontractor payment reports to be submitted with pay requests, prior approval by the
MBD Office and the managing departments, of any replacement of SLBE or W/MBE
subcontractors, and a report of final amounts paid to all subcontractors.
(Ref: use #1-DMI 30 Form w/Pay Applications; #2-Prime & Subs must log into
Diversity Mgt. Compliance System to report payment activity)

Name _______________________________________ Title _________________________________
The Compliance Plan with attachments is a true account of Good Faith Efforts (GFE) made to achieve the participation goals as
specified for Women/Minority Business Enterprises/Small Local Business Enterprises (WMBE/SLBE) on the referenced contract:
The WMBE/SLBE participation Goal is Met or Exceeded. See DMI Forms 10 and 20 which accurately report all
subcontractors solicited and all subcontractors to-be-utilized.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The WMBE/SLBE participation Goal is Not Achieved. The following list is an overview of the baseline GFE action
steps already performed. Furthermore, it is understood that these GFE requirements are weighted in the compliance
evaluation based on the veracity and demonstrable degree of documentation provided with the bid/proposal:
(Check applicable boxes below. Must enclose supporting documents accordingly with remarks)
(1) Solicited through reasonable and available means the interest of WMBE/SLBEs that have the capability to perform the work of the contract. The Bidder or Proposer must
solicit this interest within sufficient time to allow the WMBE/SLBEs to respond. The Bidder or Proposer must take appropriate steps to follow up initial solicitations with
interested WMBE/SLBEs. See DMI report forms for subcontractors solicited. See enclosed supplemental data on solicitation
efforts. Qualifying Remarks:
(2) Provided interested WMBE/SLBEs with adequate, specific scope information about the plans, specifications, and requirements of the contract, including addenda, in a
timely manner to assist them in responding to the requested-scope identified by bidder/proposer for the solicitation. See enclosed actual solicitations
used. Qualifying Remarks:
(3) Negotiated in good faith with interested WMBE/SLBEs that have submitted bids (e.g. adjusted quantities or scale). Documentation of negotiation must include the names,
addresses, and telephone numbers of WMBE/SLBEs that were solicited; the date of each such solicitation; a description of the information provided regarding the plans
and specifications for the work selected for subcontracting; and evidence as to why agreements could not be reached with WMBE/SLBEs to perform the work. Additional
costs involved in soliciting and using subcontractors is not a sufficient reason for a bidder/proposer’s failure to meet goals or achieve participation, as long as such costs
are reasonable. Bidders are not required to accept excessive quotes in order to meet the goal.
DMI Utilized Forms for sub-(contractor/consultant) reflect genuine negotiations This project is an RFQ/RFP in nature
and negotiations are limited to clarifications of scope/specifications and qualifications. See enclosed documentation.
Qualifying Remarks:
(4) Not rejecting WMBE/SLBEs as being unqualified without justification based on a thorough investigation of their capabilities. The WMBE/SLBEs standing within its industry,
membership in specific groups, organizations / associations and political or social affiliations are not legitimate causes for rejecting or not soliciting bids to meet the goals.
Not applicable. See attached justification for rejection of a subcontractor’s bid or proposal. Qualifying Remarks:
(5) Made scope(s) of work available to WMBE/SLBE subcontractors and suppliers; and, segmented portions of the work or material consistent with the available
WMBE/SLBE subcontractors and suppliers, so as to facilitate meeting the goal. Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of
work or trade without restriction to a pre-determined portion. See enclosed comments. Qualifying Remarks:
(6) Made good faith efforts, despite the ability or desire of Bidder/Proposer to perform the work of a contract with its own forces/organization. A Bidder/Proposer who desires
to self-perform the work of a contract must demonstrate good faith efforts if the goal has not been met. Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from
submitting bids/proposals and were solicited on work typically self-performed by the prime. Qualifying Remarks:
(7) Segmented portions of the work to be performed by WMBE/SLBEs in order to increase the likelihood that the goals will be met. This includes, where appropriate,
breaking out contract work items into economically feasible units (quantities/scale) to facilitate WMBE/SLBE participation, even when the Bidder/Proposer might otherwise
prefer to perform these work items with its own forces. Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of work or trade without
restriction to a pre-determined portion. Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from submitting bids/proposals and were
solicited on work typically self-performed by the prime. See enclosed comments. Qualifying Remarks:
(8) Made efforts to assist interested WMBE/SLBEs in obtaining bonding, lines of credit, or insurance as required by the city or contractor.
See enclosed documentation on initiatives undertaken and methods to accomplish. Qualifying Remarks:
(9) Made efforts to assist interested WMBE/SLBEs in obtaining necessary equipment, supplies, materials, or related assistance or services, including participation in an
acceptable mentor-protégé program. See enclosed documentation of initiatives and/or agreements. Qualifying Remarks:
(10) Effectively used the services of the City and other organizations that provide assistance in the recruitment and placement of WMBE/SLBEs.
See enclosed documentation. The following services were used:

cetera, if required of subcontractors by the City or Prime Contractor.
9. In its solicitation, the Bidder should offer assistance in obtaining equipment for a specific job to

In addition to the above scope items, the following items contain the project history and
overview description of the project requirements:
II. Building History
Significance
The Tampa Convention Center is large facility with a mix meeting rooms, ball rooms, and exhibit
halls. The building was built in 1990, renovated in 2001 to convert a café space with storage into
additional meeting rooms. In 2015, the City contemplated a refresh of the facilities to include
updated rest rooms, new finishes in the meeting rooms, and rehabilitation of the elevators.
Site
The location of the Tampa Convention Center is on South Franklin Street adjoining the river
heart of the downtown central business district. The most prominent face of the building is
facing the river and is the forefront of many of more dramatic views of the city skyline.
Interior
The Tampa Convention Center interiors area characterized by precast column covers, fabric
covered wall panels with honey maple 1x6 trim, terrazzo, split-face block, and metal column
covers incorporated into the window wall systems.
Page 5 of 11
Building Façade
The building consists of several different enclosure systems with the predominate one being
decorative precast concrete panels. The second most common material is split-face or smooth
face integrally colored concrete masonry. The remainder of the opening are window wall
systems for the respective public area or meeting rooms that face the river.
Building Renovation HistoryTime Line
Since 2001, the building has gone through several renovations including:
2001 Conversion of the original Café Space and Storage to three new Meeting Rooms,
Conversion of the 4th Floor Office in to Meeting Rooms 30A through Meeting 39, expansion of
the 4th Floor corridor, and addition of two stairs to the Convention Floor Level
2006 Conversion of Agam Fountain into a Park Area
2009 Conversion of former Agam Fountain into The Sail Pavilion Bar
2011 Addition of exterior Rest Rooms at the Sail Pavilion
2017 Renovation of Interior Rest Rooms
2018-2019 Addition of Big Ray’s Fish Camp Building, The Sail Plaza, and additions of Ramps #1
and #4 along the Upper River Walk
2018-2019 New Trash Compactor and sidewalks along Franklin Street
2019 Renovation of 3 Concession Stands within the Exhibit Halls, Conversion of Bay Bistro to a
Datz Restaurant
III. Site Related Work
The Tampa Convention Center covers approximately 3 city blocks and is adjacent to three local
streets in the downtown area. The Convention Center is unique in the fact that it both an Upper
and Lower Riverwalk. The Lower Riverwalk is the portion of the Riverwalk immediately adjacent
to the river and the north docks. The Lower Riverwalk is approximately 300 feet long.
Modification of Stairs & New Ramps
The plan calls for the removal of 5 sets of existing exterior stairs and the installation of
approximately 4 foot high concrete wall with precast cladding to match the existing precast. This
portion of work will include approximately 240 LF of new decorative railing. At each end of the
Lower Riverwalk, there is a 17 foot wide staircase to be modified to include an 8 foot wide ramp,
a 1 foot wide decorative retaining for the stairs, and the required hand railing and guard railing
to match the new design standard for the Convention Center.
Parking and Pedestrian Related Improvements
The Convention Center is an activity hub that supports multiple forms of mobility including
pedestrians, bicycling, ride sharing, vehicles, buses, and shuttles. There are number of
improvements to be completed to enhance connectivity, accessibility, functionality, flexibility,
and aesthetics. These may include but not limited to:
Curb and sidewalk work at the drop-off area and miscellaneous areas
Bump Out and Curb Ramps at Channelside Drive and Franklin Street
Parking Lot Improvements to North Parking Lot
Page 6 of 11
Miscellaneous Improvements to Tampa Street & Brorien Street for improved access to the
Parking Garage
Bump Out and Curb Ramps at Ashley Drive and Brorien Street with miscellaneous sidewalk
work along Brorien between Ashley Drive and Tampa Street
IV. New Construction Related Work
The Tampa Convention Center has been successful at booking conventions and events for
approximately 3 years into the future. Due to this success, there is a demand for newer and
better facilities to serve these customers. The initial goal is to renovate the existing meeting
rooms while keeping the facility in full operation during construction. However, the staff
identified the need have additional meeting rooms to offset the demand during the renovations
portion of the project.
New Meeting Rooms
The City has previously contracted with a designer to design 18 new meeting rooms over the
Upper Riverwalk adjacent to the West Hall. This scope of work includes the demolition of the
existing porch roof structure and precast cladding over the Upper Riverwalk. The construction of
18 new meeting rooms over the Upper Riverwalk will utilize the existing structural columns. The
proposed floor plans and exterior elevations will need to modification and value engineering to
some degree. The proposed design utilizes existing floor space with the West Hall for the
corridors and stairways to serve third and fourth levels. The Owner wishes to include a solar
panel system as part of the roof system if feasible.
V. Interior Renovations Related Work
There is an initial phase of construction that may need to occur prior to or during the New
Meeting Room construction phase of the project. In order to attain the required number of
toilet facilities for the new meeting rooms, there is a need to convert certain storage areas and
potentially a underutilized meeting to rest room facilities. This will include the following:
Restrooms
Meeting Room 30B into new rest rooms to support the New Meeting Rooms (approx. 600 SF)
(Full Design Needed)
Convert Chair Storage Area into Rest Rooms (approx. 850 SF) (Design Complete)
New Service Elevator
The construction of a new service elevator is also needed for the project. The design for the new
service elevator is complete. This requires some meeting room modifications as the location of
the new service elevator on the Ball Room Level (Floor 1) lands in the current Meeting Room
#11. To accomplish this new elevator construction, the contractor will need to construct a new
meeting room space where an existing rest room is located (Rest Room #2). Thus, Rest Room #2
will need to be demolished in order to construct the new meeting room space. There is an air
wall between Meeting Rooms #11 and #12 which can be closed after the completion of the new
meeting room space. The new meeting room space will become the new Meeting Room #13
when the project is complete. The existing Meeting Room #11 will become the new service
Page 7 of 11
corridor with the service elevator. The existing Meeting Rooms #12 & #13 will be renumbered as
Meeting Rooms #11 & #12 respectively. The new service corridor (former Meeting Room #11)
will include two single restrooms and a small EMT station.
VI. Interior Renovations Related Work (Final Phase)
The project will include renovation of the existing Meeting Rooms 1 through 9, 11 through 17,
30A (except 30B) through 39 This portion of the work will need to occur in separate phasing
after New Meeting Rooms are constructed and operational. The renovations will include:
Removal of certain finishes, Painting, and new finishes within each room
Carpeting in each meeting room
Refurbishment of fabric panels of the Existing Meeting Room Fronts in Pre-Function Corridor
Areas
Minor ceiling work and installation of new lighting fixtures as noted on the plans
Renovation of vestibule tiling and drinking fountains at Rest Rooms #7, #8, #9, and #10 to
match the recently renovated spaces on the Ball Room Level
VII. Vertical Circulation Related Work
The project requires the rehabilitation of 3 existing Passenger Elevators (#1, #2, & #5) and 1
Service Elevator (#3). The design is complete for this work. These four elevators are to be
rehabilitated from hydraulic to machine room less (MRL). Elevators #1 & #2 share a common
shaft located near Meeting Room #1. These two elevators will need to be completed at the
same time. Elevator #1 serves all four levels. However, elevator #2 currently only serves the Ball
Room Level, the Registration Level, and the Convention Level. Elevator #2 will need to be
extended to the Office Level which is accounted for within the design. Elevator #3 is a service
elevator located immediately adjacent to the Freight Elevator (#4). The service elevator is
another elevator that does not reach the Office Level. The design to extend this to the Office
Level will need to be included in this scope of work. The Freight Elevator (#4) does extend to the
Office Level is being rehabilitated under another contract at this time.
VIII. HVAC and Related Building Systems other than New
Construction
The HVAC system at the Convention Center overall is approximately 30 years old. The facility has
been using most of the HVAC equipment for a year prior opening on October 15, 1990. Certain
portions of the system have be replaced or upgraded recently. The remainder of the air handlers
identified in the attached report will need to be rehabilitated to the specifications outlined in
the specifications and drawings.
The following items are to be included in project:
(#1) Replace air handling units AHU-25, 27, 28, 30, 31, 35, and 36. Increase the capacity on
all the units by 15-20%. (New Units ~ 135,000 CFM total)

Target Value Design
The Project has a fixed capital budget and it is imperative that the selected team work with the
Owner to work within the capital budget. The project must adhere to a process where the
project is designed to the budget. In order to achieve this goal, the Owner will require the
selected team follow the LEAN process of Target Value Design. The primary objective for this
requirement is:
1. Require the entire Project Team (Owner, Designer and Builder) to work collaboratively
to understand the key programmatic requirements of the Project.
2. To insure the Project Team (Owner, Designer and Builder) work together to establish the
scope that is achievable for the target values identified.
Page 10 of 11
3. To insure the Project Team (Owner, Designer and Builder) work collaboratively thru the
design process to maintain the scope and target value
In responding to this RFQ, the Owner expects the respondent to outline their proposed
approach to implementing Target Value Design into the design-build delivery method for the
project.
Workforce Development
A description of a Workforce Development Program should include any ongoing or developing
programs such as apprenticeship, mentoring or on-the-job training. The Program description
should include any efforts toward fostering a strong and talented workforce in Tampa,
promoting an increase of school attendance and graduation rates, defining pathways through
higher education, technical certification programs and career readiness. It should also mention
any workforce incentives, championing local businesses and removing barriers to access. The
Program description should also include contracting and subcontracting trades, and engineering,
architectural, geotechnical and public engagement opportunities.
Scheduling Around Events
Tampa Convention Center (TCC) must remain operational for the duration of the construction.
The successful contractor will be required to work with TCC Management for the scheduling
and coordination of related logistics to minimize the overall impact to client and guest relations;
a critical component of the work to be completed.
To reduce any confusion and to ensure the Center provides updated information to clients, the
successful contractor will work directly with and schedule weekly meetings with the Tampa
Convention Center Operations Manager. A schedule of booked events from 2019 through 2022
that will result in some form of demobilization is provided. Some of the booked events have
specific requirements for maximum noise levels, rented areas that must be cleared during the
event, and logistical issues related to move-in/move-out staging for the events. Some critical
events must be accounted for during the scheduling of the work up front to allow for major
known conflicts to be communicated to our contracted clients. Some of our event contracts
include “no construction” clauses during their scheduled events and the contractor must plan to
fully accommodate these “no work/demobilize for the event” situations into the schedule of the
entire project. The scope of demobilization will be event dependent and may include at a
maximum complete stoppage of all activity and removal of any impediments. The work within
the Convention Exhibit space will have the most impact on the Convention Center’s operations
during construction. The selected contractor must minimize the impact to the Convention
Exhibit space footprint and schedule throughout the duration of the construction.
Page 11 of 11
Scheduled Events
The Tampa Convention Center will provide a full list of all scheduled events to the selected
team. Below is a list of the highest profile events that require critical special attention that the
selected contractor must plan to fully accommodate during the planning and construction
phasing of the work mentioned in this RFQ.
