Jackson County to solicit RFP for new jail
Missouri– Jackson County will issue a request for proposals (RFP) for an owner’s representative services for a new jail. An owner’s representative manages all aspects of a construction project on behalf of an investor or developer. The county recently formed a working group for project development of the new jail. A consultant team explored new facility options ranging from $230 million to $270 million.
An owner’s representative will have primary management responsibility for the planning, design, construction, commissioning and occupancy of the new county jail. The 2019 budget includes $30 million for the detention center and the county will issue the RFP by early April.
