California panel seeks small businesses to work on high-speed rail segment
The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) will host a forum Jan. 22 for firms interested in working on the authority’s track and system design-build-maintain contract for a 119-mile high-speed rail segment between Madera and Popular Avenue in California’s Central Valley.
The forum will provide an opportunity for interested small businesses to meet the project's pre-qualified prime contractors and learn more about the procurement process, CHSRA officials said in a press release.
The contracted work's scope will include design and construction of track, railway systems, electrification, as well as testing and commissioning of the rail segment. It also includes a 30-year term of maintenance for both the underlying civil works and track and systems work, which would include construction of necessary maintenance facilities.
Selected contractors would perform interface and integration duties with respect to the CHSRA’s other contractors.
