Legal Notice

The Board of County Commissioners (the “Board”), in and for Clark County, Ohio intends to receive Statements of Qualifications (“SOQs”) from professional design firms desiring to be placed on the list of prequalified firms interested in providing services to the Clark County Department of Utilities (the “Department”) for projects with an estimated design fee of less than $50,000.  Firms interested in being added to the Pre-qualified list may submit SOQs at any time.  To be selected for a particular project, a firm must have either submitted a current SOQ within a year prior to selection for the project, or the firm must have sent notice to the Department’s Operations Engineer indicating that the information in a previously submitted SOQ is still current, along with any necessary updates.  A prequalified firm will be removed from this list if the firm submits a letter requesting to be removed or fails to timely submit either a current SOQ or a notice indicating that a previously submitted SOQ is still current. 

A firm requesting to be added to the prequalified list shall submit One (1) copy of the firm’s Statement of Qualifications to the Clark County Department of Utilities, 3130 East Main Street, P.O. Box 1303, Springfield, Ohio 45501-1303, Attention:  Tom Bleidorn, Operations Engineer.  Questions may be submitted via email to or by mail.  A firm’s SOQ will expire one (1) year after submission if the firm fails to keep the SOQ current as indicated in this legal notice.

Factors to be determined for prequalification:

·        Competence to perform the required professional design services as indicated by the technical training, education, and experience of the firm’s personnel, especially the technical training, education, and experience of the employees within the firm who would be assigned to perform the services. 

·        Ability of the firm in terms of its workload and the availability of qualified personnel, equipment, and facilities to perform the required professional design services competently and expeditiously. 

·        Past performance of the firm as reflected by the evaluations of previous clients with respect to such factors as control of costs, quality of work, and meeting of deadlines. 

The prequalification of any professional design firm does not guarantee that the Board will contract with or use that particular firm for any particular project.  Prequalification simply means that the firm may be considered for professional design projects with an estimated cost of less than $50,000 pursuant to R.C. 153.71(A).
