INVITATION TO BID
CROW DAM SPILLWAY MODIFICATION PROJECT
AREA 2
SOLICITATION/SPECIFICATIONS CSKT/SOD 18-01

    The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes desire to enter into a Construction Agreement with a general construction contractor to demolish, remove and rebuild the lower sections of the existing Crow Dam reinforced concrete spillway. The Crow Dam Spillway Modification Project – Area 2 is located at Crow Dam approximately six miles southwest of the town of Ronan on the Flathead Indian Reservation, MT. The existing emergency spillway for Crow Dam will be replaced with a new spillway constructed in two separate construction phases. The overall replacement project includes the demolition of the existing spillway structure and appurtenances and the construction of a piano key weir spillway crest, chute, and flip bucket along the same general alignment as the existing spillway. Construction of the spillway will require demolition of the existing spillway, excavation to accommodate the wider spillway channel and construction of a new, reinforced concrete lined spillway. The first phase of construction (Area 2) consists of replacement of the existing chute and stilling basin and replacing it with a new chute, flip bucket, and armored apron. The second phase (Area 3) consists of the replacement of the existing side-channel inlet structure and tunnel with a piano key weir spillway crest structure, sloped trough, and channel crossing beneath Crow Dam Road.

    This Contract only includes demolition and reconstruction of the lower portion of the spillway heretofore referred to as Area 2. Area 3 will be constructed in the future and is not part of this Contract.

    Plans, specifications and bidding documents for this project may be obtained from: Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes, Program, Attn: Greg Wilson, P.O. Box 278, Pablo, MT 59855, phone 406-676-2600, email: gregory.wilson@cskt.org. Plans, specifications and bidding documents may also be viewed and downloaded at the following web site: http://nrd.csktribes.org/water- management/sod. The successful bidder will be required to enter into an agreement with the Tribes to conduct this project. A non- mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held at the Natural Resources Department Office located at 301 Main Street, Polson MT, at 2:00 P.M. (local time) on February 1, 2018. Contractor sealed-bids must be submitted on the supplied bid forms and received at the address listed in the solicitation for bid opening no later than 2:00 P.M. (local time), February 13, 2018.

    This is an Indian Preference Bid project with Indian Preference provisions. The selection of the successful contractor and award of this project will be per the provisions of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Indian Preference Ordinance 101A. Tribal Contractors who wish to receive Indian Preference must obtain certification by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Indian Preference Office as a legitimate Indian-owned business prior to the submission of bids. Proof of Indian Preference Certification must be included with your bid in the form of a copy of the Certificate issued by the Indian Preference Office.
