Independent Contractor Forms for the University (complete list) Please review which form should be completed with your Project Manager or primary JHU contact.

Becoming a Vendor for JHU

The Design & Construction (D&C) departments of Johns Hopkins have instituted a joint prequalification process for projects managed by Johns Hopkins Health System, Johns Hopkins Facilities & Real Estate, the School of Medicine and the School of Public Health.   If you are interested in becoming a Design & Construction vendor, please submit your qualifications for review by the Vendor Review Committee.  The Committee convenes monthly to review vendor submissions; once the submissions are reviewed, the committee recommends vendors for interviews with D&C leaders.  Monthly interview sessions will be scheduled and vendors will be notified of the status of their prequalification submission.

Request for Proposals/Invitation to Bid:

JHU policy requires that all purchase orders with a total aggregate of $5,000 or more be competitively bid. Proposers and bidders are by JHU invitation.

We invite proposals/bids on a project-by-project basis depending on size, complexity, and timing. We may provide a list of preferred vendors to a general contractor or design firm, but will gladly consider others, given adequate notice to check references.

Evaluation Criteria:

Our primary goal is to maintain high quality work while obtaining the best value (not necessarily the lowest price) for our clients and for the University. Therefore, it may not be practical to award a contract for competitive reasons alone. Your proposal/bid for a project shall be evaluated against both qualitative and quantitative criteria.

We value design consultants, constructors, and special service vendors, and specificially the individuals within those companies, who have tangible experience in the type of project being developed. We strive to maintain positive working relationships with firms that have provided outstanding service to the University in the past. We also look for opportunities to collaborate with new companies, including those with DBE certificatin. Reference checks, including constructors, consultants and other clients are valued in the selection process.
