Plans are to contract a reputable architectural firm for design services for federally and locally funded projects related to the construction of a new Community Food Bank for Jasper County. This project may include Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds in compliance with CFR 200 for Procurement. This procurement action may also lead to additional project contracts and/or contract addendums for Preliminary Architectural Report (PAR), design and construction administration services, for State and federally funded projects. This is not a request for retainer services. Immediate plans call for services to assist Jasper County with design services.
