SYNOPSIS 

In accordance with the Port’s mission to create economic vitality and of our strategy to be a high 
performance organization, Seaport Project Management proposes to advertise and select 
qualified firms to provide Real Estate Services, Cranes, Docks, Buildings, Infrastructure and 
Project Management services to Seaport, Real Estate, Aviation and Capital Development 
Divisions. 

The current plan is to award up to 10 contracts ranging in value from $250,000 to $750,000.  The 
contract amounts and distribution of work are based on historic usage and forecasted work of 
each discipline as identified in acquisition planning.   

In accordance with CPO-1 guidelines, each individual contract will not exceed $750,000 and will 
have a maximum duration of three years. 

 

BACKGROUND 

The Port enters into a substantial number of Service Agreements each year.  Each requires a 
significant amount of time and paperwork to process.
