  Project: tender_8064 - Cost Consulting Services to Develop Funding Benchmarks for Child Care Facilit

Detailed Description

This RFB is an invitation to prospective Bidders to submit Bids for the provision of deliverables made up of three (3) parts:

PART A: Cost Consultant services to support the development of funding benchmarks for child care facilities under two (2) conditions;
1.    Built as part of a new school or;
2.    Built as an addition to an existing school or as a freestanding building on an existing school site

PART B: Cost Consultant to undertake analysis of the impact on cost of identified options or variations to the designs costed in Part A.

PART C: In consultation with Ministry staff, or designate(s), prepare an outline specification to summarize the standard for the buildings costed with the options/variations identified.

PART D: Provisional Item; Child and Family Program Room

Scope of Work

The overarching objective is to enable the Ministry, school boards, and Consolidated Municipal Service Managers/District Social Services Administration Boards to better support the integration of child care services into schools through the planning and construction of effective, efficient, and sustainable child care facilities in schools.
To that end, the Ministry is intending to establish reasonable cost benchmark(s) in order to ensure school boards in the province have reasonable and equitable funding to implement the child care spaces to be built over the next several years.
The Ministry is seeking the services of a qualified professional Cost Consultant to provide costing services and advice (the “Services”) to the Ministry of Education on the cost of constructing child care facilities on school sites. These child care facilities will generally be implemented in the following ways; as part of construction of a new school, as an addition to a school, as a free standing structure on a school site, or as a renovation to an existing school space.
The objective of the costing of sample child care facilities is to assist the Ministry in understanding how different construction scenarios would impact the cost of child care designs that are based on the recommendations of the Expert Panel on Early Years Capital Standards in Schools.
The Ministry has an existing methodology for equitably accounting for differences in the cost of school facilities in various areas of the province. This same methodology will be used to prorate the child care funding across the province. For this reason, all costing exercises must reflect the cost of the facilities as if they were built in a location or area identified by the Ministry as having a geographic adjustment of 1.0.
