Statement of Qualifications for Architecture

Missouri State University is requesting a Statement of Qualifications for architectural services. This request is to have information about your firm on file for future reference. This Statement of Qualifications will help our department in the selection process for professional services for the construction projects at Missouri State University. It is our intent to make selections of professional services on many of our smaller projects based on the qualifications submitted. On major construction projects, an interview may become part of the selection process.

If your firm is interested in the possibility of providing professional services for the University, please submit your Statement of Qualifications. These will remain on file for a period of one year. At that time, you should resubmit a current Statement of Qualifications. It will be each firm's responsibility to submit a new Statement of Qualifications each year. In addition to the yearly submittal, we ask that if for some reason your firm's qualifications should change materially from what is submitted, a new Statement of Qualifications be filed with our office at that time.

In order to better evaluate each firm's qualifications, the following factors will be reviewed and may be considered in the selection process. It is asked that you provide your qualifications in the following order to help in this evaluation.

  1. Please list the key personnel of the firm. This listing should include each individuals educational background and experience.  The length of service with the firm should also be noted.

  2. Experience the firm has with educational or university facilities. This experience will not be mandatory for selection, but preference may be given in certain instances when the individual project may dictate.

  3. General experience of the firm. Please list examples of the firm's work for the past ten (10) years, with the personnel responsible for the projects listed.

  4. List what engineering services are provided by the firm. If areas are subcontracted, what consultants are usually used for these services.

  5. Please list three to five references we may contact. Please give the person's title along with their relationship to either a particular project or how they are acquainted with the firm. Addresses and telephone numbers should be listed.

  6. Contact person for the firm. Please list who we should contact for additional information or to arrange interviews as the need arises.

  7. Additional information. Any additional information you would like to present may be listed here.

In addition to the qualifications provided, selection of a consultant will also include their past record of performance with respect to such factors as control of costs, quality of work, and the ability to meet schedules. The firm's proximity to and familiarity with the area may also be a consideration in the selection process.

Please submit your Statement of Qualifications and Architect-Engineer and Related Services Questionnaire electronically to our office.  If you have any questions concerning this request, please feel free to call the office of Planning, Design & Construction at 417-836-5101.
