Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Trillium Health Partners (THP) have issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a design and development team to deliver a new Mississauga hospital.
The Trillium Health Partners Broader Redevelopment – Mississauga Hospital Site project (The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital) will allow THP to increase flexibility to respond to future health care challenges, feature modern hospital facilities and technology, and reflect the latest standards in infection prevention and control.
The successful bidder at the conclusion of the RFP process would then work in collaboration with IO, THP and the Ministry of Health (Ministry), under a Development Phase Agreement, to further define and refine project requirements, and design, pricing and risk parameters.
The RFP is the first step in IO’s new progressive procurement approach, which will enable the participation of a long-term, sustainable market of qualified firms, competing to deliver projects through more collaborative means.
A fairness monitor will oversee the RFP process, which includes:
- Qualifying teams with demonstrated experience, and that meet financial capacity requirements, which will then proceed to the subsequent phase of the RFP process, thereby receiving bid documents and an invitation to attend commercially confidential meetings.
- Submissions by qualified teams, related specifically to overall organization structure and team project experience, as well as design development, construction management and project controls plans for the Development Phase, and a financing plan and the price of the developer’s design and preconstruction services during the Development Phase.
The RFP process is expected to close in late summer 2022, after which IO and THP will evaluate the submissions and select a partner to enter into a Development Phase Agreement for the Development Phase. Upon completion of the Development Phase, it is expected that the development partner would enter into a fixed-price, public-private partnership (P3) agreement to design, build, finance, and maintain the Project.
