The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador announced that a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) has been issued to establish a short list of private sector business teams interested in designing, building, financing, and maintaining the new 60-bed long-term care homes in Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor.

“It is essential that we balance the need to provide critical infrastructure with the immediate fiscal challenges facing our province,” said Steve Crocker, minister of transportation and works. “By taking this approach and partnering with the business community, our government is able to deliver key infrastructure in a timely and cost-effective manner.”

This follows a comprehensive value for money assessment (www.tw.gov.nl.ca/works/CentralLTC_Assessment.pdf) which evaluated methods for designing, building, financing, and maintaining the new homes.

Similar to the arrangement used to procure a 145-bed long-term care home in Corner Brook, the new homes will be built and maintained by a private company, with resident care provided by public sector employees.

A Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued to qualifying firms after the RFQ process is complete. The successful proponent will deliver both homes under a single contract with construction beginning in 2019.

A RFP to select a design consultant for the 20-bed expansion of the protective care unit at the Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Centre in Botwood will be issued in the coming weeks.
