Pursuant to State Finance Law § 139-j and § 139-k, this solicitation includes and imposes certain restrictions on communications between CUCF and a Proposer during the procurement process. A Proposer is restricted from making contacts from the earliest posting on the CUNY Builds website, the City Record, or the New York State Contract Reporter websites of its intent to solicit offers/bids/proposals through final award and approval of Procurement Contract(s) by CUCF/CUNY and, if applicable, the Office of the State Comptroller (“restricted period”) to other than Designated Contact(s) unless it is a contact that is included among certain statutory exceptions set forth in State Finance Law § 139-j(3)(a). Designated Contact(s), as of the date hereof, are identified in Section I.C. above.

CUCF/CUNY employees are also required to obtain certain information when contacted during the restricted period and to make a determination of the responsibility of the Proposer pursuant to State Finance Law §139-j and §139-k. Findings of non-responsibility related to non-compliance with provisions of the procurement lobbying prohibitions pursuant to State Finance Law § 139-j and § 139-k may result in rejection of a Responder’s Proposal. Further, in the event of two such findings within a four-year period, the Proposer may be debarred from obtaining governmental Procurement Contracts for four years pursuant to State Finance Law § 139-j and § 139-k. Further information about these requirements can be found on the New York State Office of General Services (OGS) website at:

The City University Construction Fund (CUCF) on behalf of the City University of New York (CUNY) Office for Facilities Planning, Construction and Management (FPCM), is seeking to enter into Requirements Contracts with construction firms to provide window contractor services at CUNY facilities on an “as needed” basis. As the need for window contractor services arises, CUCF expects to solicit bids for these projects from those firms awarded Master Requirements Contracts (MRC) under this solicitation through the task order request process described in this solicitation.


A copy of the solicitation that more fully describes the procurement process, minimum qualification requirements, submission requirements, evaluation criteria, timeline and contact information is available for downloading at, under Current and Upcoming Procurements.

Firms selected through this solicitation will execute a Master Requirements Contract (MRC) with CUCF on behalf of CUNY/FPCM based on the conditions of this RFQ. A three (3) year contract term is anticipated, subject to all required internal and external oversight approvals. It is further anticipated that each MRC awarded would have a not-to-exceed amount of $15 million for all assigned services.

Subsequent to award of a MRC and as the need arises, firms may be further considered for project specific task order assignments as set forth in Section VI of the RFQ.

RFQ Submissions are due on Monday, August 1, 2022 by 1:00 PM. Responses must be submitted electronically through the Dropbox link to be provided on the CUNY Builds website at (Click on Current and Upcoming Procurements).

A Pre-Proposal Conference will be held on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at 12:00 PM via Zoom. A zoom link to the Pre-Proposal Conference will be made available on the CUNY Builds website at (Click on Current and Upcoming Procurements).
