The Capital Projects Coordinator shall determine the designer's or consultant's overall performance for the completed project. The overall rating is intended to reflect the effectiveness of the design in achieving the predetermined project scope in a timely, cost effective manner. The evaluation shall encompass the designer's or consultant's management approach to the project including cooperation of the designer's staff, communication with the Capital Projects Coordinator and Owner's representative, timeliness of action, and performance of consultants. The Capital Projects Coordinator shall invite input from the Owner's representative and the State Construction Office. All prime contractors shall be offered the opportunity to provide an assessment of the designer at job completion. The Capital Projects Coordinator shall be responsible for the final overall rating. This summary evaluation shall not necessarily reflect a precise numerical averaging of scores for the Pre‑design, Design, and Bidding‑Construction phases but will be generally representative of those scores. To be timely and useful, designer evaluation data will be accumulated within 30 days of submission of the final report. Prior to completion of the final designer evaluation, the Capital Projects Coordinator shall submit the proposed evaluation to the designer for comment. Comments received from designers or consultants shall be considered by the Capital Projects Coordinator. At this stage, the Capital Projects Coordinator shall prepare the final designer or consultant evaluation and provide a copy to the designer or consultant. The form approved by the SBC shall be used for this purpose.
