e. Value Engineering Studies

The DPWH intends to develop a policy to utilize value engineering


studies whenever applicable and appropriate, to minimize and/or reduce
nonessential procurement and program costs and to reduce the life cycle
cost of the Departments construction and acquisition programs and
projects without sacrificing the quality and integrity of the facilities and
structures while attaining their essential functions consistent with the
required performance, reliability and safety. In line with the policy, the
Contractor shall perform Value Engineering Studies as part of the Detailed
Engineering Design scope under this project. The Contractor shall include
social and environmental concerns or impacts as among the factors for
consideration in the value engineering studies as well as taking into
account environmental risk assessment.

not limited to the following:

1. Information Phase

Under the information phase, the activities include program/project


information gathering and investigation and in performing functional
analysis of systems and subsystems to identify high cost areas of the
project.

2. Speculative/Creative Phase

Activities under this phase involve developing effective and efficient


group interaction process (brainstorming) to identify alternative ideas,
proposals and solutions for accomplishing the function of a systems
and subsystem.

10.0 PROCEDURE AND CRITERIA FOR BID EVALUATION

Bid Evaluation

For the detailed evaluation of the design and build proposals, a two-step
procedure shall be adopted by the BAC which shall apply in case of any
inconsistencies with the contents of Item 27 of the Tender Documents, to wit:

A. The first step of the evaluation shall involve the review of the
preliminary conceptual designs and track record submitted by the
contractor as indicated in the bid documents using the hereunder
criteria that involve compliance with the following requirements:

i. Adherence of preliminary design plans to the required


performance specifications and parameters and degree of
details;

Non-discretionary Pass/Fail Criteria shall be used in the


evaluation.

ii. Concept of approach and methodology for detailed engineering,


design and construction with emphasis on the:

a. Clarity, feasibility, innovativeness and comprehensiveness of


the plan approach; and,
b. Quality of interpretation of project problems, risks, and
suggested solutions.

Bidders should obtain a rating of at least fifty percent (50%)

iii. Quality of personnel to be assigned to the project which covers

a. Suitability of key staff to perform the duties of the particular


assignments; and,
b. General qualifications and competence including education
and training of the key staff;

Non-discretionary Pass/Fail Criteria shall be used in the


evaluation.
