SEMO Electric Selects Conexon for Design and Construction Oversight; Releases Construction RFP

12:29PM June 21, 2017

SEMO Electric Cooperative has contracted Conexon to design and manage the construction of a fiber to the home (FTTH) network for smart grid and the delivery of broadband to SEMO Electric’s members and other subscribers. Therefore, a Request for Proposal (RFP) has been developed to solicit proposals and pricing from various fiber construction companies to build the segments for Phase 1 of the project.  Contractors performing well on Phase 1 will have the opportunity to extend the construction contract into future phases at SEMO Electric’s discretion.

Contractors are invited to submit a proposal for the SEMO Electric’s Fiber Construction project in accordance with the requirements set forth in the RFP. If a contractor wishes to bid, a letter of intent must be submitted to Conexon in writing, fax, or e-mail no later than July 1, 2017.  The letter of intent is not binding but will greatly assist SEMO Electric in planning for proposal evaluation.  SEMO Electric will not accept proposals if the letter of intent is not filed within the specified time period.

The original and/or electronic proposal must be received not later than 5 p.m., July 6, 2017, or the proposal will otherwise be disqualified.  We anticipate that the provider whose proposal is the best solution for this project will be selected by July 11, 2017. We will notify all providers, whether they are disqualified or unsuccessful. Upon notification, the contract negotiation with the winning bidder(s) will begin immediately.  Contract negotiations are scheduled to be completed by July 25, 2017 and construction scheduled to start by August 4, 2017.

For all questions or to request a RFP, please email Conexon at randy@conexon.us
