  4. VIII. Facilities Design and Construction Closeout Reports (Discussion)

Presenter: Karen Alarid, Executive Director of Capital / Dr. Brad Winter, Chief    Operations Officer

Ms. Alarid asked the board to focus on the closeout summary sheet, focusing on the following:

  • Last set of closeouts prior to moving to e-Builder
  • Report shows that six out of 10 projects were under budget
  • $6.1 million in savings
  • Changing from low bid to qualification based bid improved the process
  • Three of the projects listed have significant change orders:
    • Hoover Middle School 16 percent; issue was weak electrical drawings
    • Wherry Elementary School 38 percent; issues were electrical, phase 3 electrical was left out and Kirtland needed to have the electrical put underground because of safety issues
    • Zuni Elementary School 17 percent; exterior walls have to be rebuilt due to age of the facility

Dr. Duran requested clarification of what caused the discrepancies and how can this process be improved to ensure non-recurrence, specifically if  the correct specifications  were sent to bidders.

Ms. Alarid explained that quality control has been improved by:

  • Switching to the qualified based bid selection
  • Careful proofing of issues during the bidding process
  • Instatement of a sit-down and review at 50 percent and 90 percent
  • Reviews are longer and more thorough
  • Less change orders are expected in the future, for example the Atrisco Heritage Academy High school projects, which were processed through the qualifications-based selection process, were 2.2 percent
  • Bid pool is improving since moving to the qualification-based selection

Kathy Korte remarked that six schools were good, three were deficit, and funds were saved on projects.  She further stated that she was happy to see the continued reporting of the closeouts because it gives board members needed information to inform the community and make decisions in the future

  1. IX. The next Capital Outlay, Property and Technology Committee meeting is scheduled for October 15, 2013, at 7:35 a.m., at the Alice and Bruce King Educational Complex in the DeLayo Martin Community Room.

Mr. Garcia announced the upcoming meetings.
