    6. 6. Risk = Money <ul><li>If there is more risk associated with a provision, the party taking the risk should price it appropriately. </li></ul><ul><li>Likewise, if a party is unwilling to take a risk, they should not receive as much money as one who is. </li></ul>4

    12. 12.

    13. 13. New Role of Designer <ul><li>No longer the Owner’s representative; however, still has professional obligations toward Owner in addition to contractual obligations to Design-Builder </li></ul><ul><li>Close coordination with constructor and subcontractors early </li></ul>11

    17. 17. Bridging and the Spearin Doctrine <ul><li>Bridging: The Owner provides a preliminary design as the basis for developing a proposal. </li></ul><ul><li>Spearin Doctrine: Owner warrants the sufficiency of documents given to a D-B firm. </li></ul><ul><li>Bridging shifts risk back to Owner, since D-B firm can rely on documents furnished by an owner. </li></ul>15

    19. 19. Performance v. Design Specs <ul><li>Design Specification : Owner dictates exactly how an element is to be designed. </li></ul><ul><li>Performance Specification : Owner only provides the requirement(s) for the end result of an element that will be designed by others. </li></ul>17
    20. 20. Performance vs. Design Specifications <ul><li>Trataros Construction (2001) </li></ul><ul><li>Renovation of post office in old San Juan </li></ul><ul><li>Mixture of performance and design specs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fiberglass panels replicating façade; design specs prescribed how to accomplish the work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>System required major modifications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Result: Constructor had to rely on design furnished by owner (consistent with Spearin) </li></ul></ul>18

    48. 48. Central Contractor Registration (CCR) <ul><li>Central Contractor Registration (CCR) is the primary registrant database for the U.S. Federal Government. CCR collects, validates, stores and disseminates data in support of agency acquisition missions. It is an online database of information on thousands of businesses and serves as a search engine for Contracting Officers, a marketing tool for vendors and a “link” to procurement opportunities and other important information. </li></ul><ul><li>All prospective vendors must be registered in CCR prior to award of any Government Contract. CCR Registration is FREE. Please note that if you are already registered with CCR, you are required to update your registration on an annual basis. </li></ul><ul><li>To obtain information regarding registering in the CCR, call 1-888-227-2423, or log on to the CCR web site at . Please note that you must have a Data Universal Numbering System (D-U-N-S) Number in order to begin the registration process in CCR. </li></ul>Building Strong
    49. 49. CCR continued … <ul><li>If you do not have a D-U-N-S Number to begin the CCR registration process, you must contact Dun & Bradstreet (D&B). A D-U-N-S number is a unique 9-digit identification number that is assigned for each physical location of your business. D&B is the entity responsible for providing D-U-N-S Numbers. </li></ul><ul><li>D-U-N-S Number assignment is FREE for all businesses required to register with the US Federal government for contracts or grants. </li></ul><ul><li>You may request your D-U-N-S Number(s) online at or by calling 1-866-705-5711. </li></ul>Building Strong

    51. 51. Online Representations & Certifications (ORCA) <ul><li>ORCA is an e-Government initiative that was designed to replace the paper based Representations and Certifications (Reps and Certs) process. </li></ul><ul><li>Prior to ORCA, vendors were required to submit Reps and Certs for each individual large purchase contract award. Now, using ORCA, a contractor can enter their Reps and Certs information once for use on all Federal contracts. </li></ul><ul><li>You must be registered in ORCA if the solicitation you are responding to requires that you have an active registration in CCR. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: CCR and ORCA are complementary systems. ORCA reuses data pulled from CCR and pre-populates many of the required Representations and Certifications. Then, the vendor completes the remaining Reps and Certs with the understanding that with each solicitation they are certifying to current, accurate and complete information. </li></ul>Building Strong
    52. 52. ORCA continued … <ul><li>To log into ORCA, go to and click on “Online Reps and Certs Application.” </li></ul><ul><li>To complete your ORCA registration, you will need two items: (1) An active record in CCR and (2) A Marketing Pin Identification Number (MPIN) which can be retrieved from your active CCR record. </li></ul><ul><li>For an ORCA Handbook, please visit the following link: . </li></ul>Building Strong

    56. 56. Are you a Small Business? <ul><li>To determine whether or not your firm can be considered a small business, SBA has established numerical definitions, or &quot;size standards,&quot; for all for-profit industries. These standards are matched to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries. A size standard, which is usually stated in # of employees or average annual receipts, represents the largest size that a business (including its subsidiaries and affiliates) may be to remain classified as a small business for SBA and Federal contracting programs. </li></ul><ul><li>To view SBA’s current Table of Small Business Size Standards, go to: . </li></ul><ul><li>Note: If a business exceeds the size standard for its overall industry group, it may still be a small business for its specific industry within that group; some industries have higher size standards than the general one for the industry group. </li></ul>Building Strong
    57. 57.
