Project Summary
CNM is soliciting CMAR proposals to renovate the Montoya Campus, Building “J” to better serve the changing
Montoya Campus needs.
Site: A key functional and institutional site design goal is to establish a Campus Center that integrates Building
“H”, “K”, “G” and “J” so they coalesce in an outdoor Campus Quad space that offers useful and comfortable
amenities for a variety of learning activities. Functioning as a component of the Learning Commons and
magnet for Student Activities, this outdoor environment should interface well with the surrounding buildings
and the respective programs, resources, services and campus as a whole. The site design shall strive for
user safety and provide for passive surveillance capabilities while providing for efficient and effective
circulation/accessibility to the variety of functions. The project shall strive to be compatible with and improve
upon the existing infrastructure, utilities/services, vehicular systems, pedestrian circulation systems, natural
environment, surrounding campus, grading/drainage and adjacent Master Plan development concepts,
including the newly developed Wayfinding strategies.
Facility: Through the four decades since original construction, the late 1970s Building “J” has gradually lost
vitality and as a result significant portions have become wasteful and ineffective as related to current CNM
needs. The architecture of the “new” Learning Commons should acknowledge a connection to the past and
salvage appropriate portions where viable, but extensive selective demolition will also be necessary where it
is the responsible course of action. This project should serve as a bridge to the future for CNM and the
Montoya Campus. The “new” facilities must strive for efficiency on many levels ranging from area allocation
and TARE to energy consumption and responsible use of construction materials. The interior environments
should aim to minimize distractions, encourage productive interaction and effective communication among the
users, offer access to natural light and views, and include functional flexibility to accommodate long term
change.
The project as a whole can be characterized as a combination of renovation, demolition and additions aimed
at providing CNM with a “new” iconic campus centroid that effectively supports, enhances and promotes
CNM’s teaching and learning activities and missions. Functioning as the Learning Commons, the integrated

Page 4 of 44
PART 1: STEP 1, RFQ NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS
facilities must be equipped to serve a variety of facets for CNM, including Library (Student Resource Center),
Tutorial Program (ACE), Faculty Office Suite, Dental Assistant Program, Computer Labs (SAGE), Smart
Classrooms and related user functions and amenities. The aim will be to provide environments that recognize
the fundamental missions of each programmatic area while offering enough long term flexibility to respond to
the ever changing needs of the CNM Montoya Campus.
The project will include upgrading the building envelope to improve energy efficiencies and the replacement
of all outdated building systems. The project shall be designed and constructed with the objective of meeting
LEED Silver Certification, at a minimum.
Though Building “J” will be vacated during construction, it will be very important for the CMAR to work closely
with the Design Professionals (RMKM and A-E Team Consulting Engineers) and CNM to develop a work plan
and construction schedule that minimizes disruption and promotes safety for this portion of the campus
through the duration of the project.

d.
If an Offeror who otherwise would have been awarded a contract is found not to be a responsible Offeror; a Determination that
the Offeror is not a responsible Offeror, setting forth the basis of the finding, shall be prepared by the CNM Buyer. The
unreasonable failure of the Offeror to promptly supply information in connection with an inquiry with respect to responsibility is

notified in writing within twenty-one days after an award is made through a posting to the CNM website

of the delay may be verbal with a written confirmation per Section 7, giving the probable cause and effect, with recommendations for
alternate action. Nothing in this paragraph will be interpreted as relieving the Vendor of his/her contractual obligations. However,
failure to notify CNM promptly will be a basis for determining the Vendor responsibility in an otherwise excusable delay

SECTION B: RFQ STANDARD PROPOSAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Service Provider shall not use or disclose covered data and information received from or created on behalf of CNM except as
permitted or required by this Agreement, as required by law, or as otherwise authorized in writing by CNM. Upon becoming
aware of a security breach in which College Customer Information is used or disclosed in a manner not authorized or covered by
this Agreement, including any reasonable belief that an unauthorized individual has accessed a database containing covered data
and information, or in violation of any applicable state or federal laws, Service Provider will report to CNM any security incident
immediately upon being aware of such a breach and take such corrective steps/action to remedy the breach as requested by CNM
and required by law.
Upon termination, cancellation, expiration or other conclusion of this Contract, Service Provider shall return to CNM covered
Customer Information and data unless CNM requests in writing that such Customer Information and data be destroyed. Service
Provider shall complete such return or destruction not less than 30 days after the conclusion of this Contract. Within such 30 day
period, Service Provider shall certify in writing to CNM that such return or destruction has been completed. To the extent return
or destruction is not feasible; this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
Service Provider means any person or entity that receives, maintains, processes, or otherwise is permitted access to Customer

“financial institution” as any institution engaging in the financial activities enumerated under the Bank Holding Company Act of
1956, including “making, acquiring, brokering, or servicing loans” and “collection agency services”. Because higher education
institutions participate in financial activities, such as processing student financial aid and student loans, FTC regulations consider
them financial institutions for purposes of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

a Financial Institution, whether in paper, electronic or other form that CNM has obtained from a customer in the process of

all Customer Information provided by CNM to the Service Provider or which the Service Provider acquires through its own
efforts in rendering or providing any goods or services under this Agreement, shall be considered confidential and held in strict

the extent necessary to provide or perform the goods and/or services required by this Agreement. Such information shall not be
released by the Service Provider to any other person or organization without the prior written consent and approval of CNM.
