MN&DPI JV LLC, a joint venture company in Hawaii, has been awarded an additional $15 million modification to its current architectural and engineering contract for work to be done here on Guam and in Hawaii.

The increased amount raises the cumulative contract value to $55 million. Of the contract work, 69% will be performed on Guam, 13% in Hawaii. The award announcement on the Department of Defense website does not say where the remaining 18% of the work will be done.  

According to its website, DPI or Design Partners Incorporated, provides planning and design services in Hawaii, the Pacific Basin and the Far East. This year, Hawaii Business Magazine ranked DPI No. 2 in terms of biggest gains in gross sales. DPI’s gross annual sales rose by 85% in 2018 over the previous year.

NAVFAC Pacific awarded the contract modification, which calls for design and engineering work on a number of structural and waterfront projects at Navy and Marine Corps facilities within the area of responsibility of Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

The job includes design and engineering services for the execution and delivery of engineering studies; plans, specifications, and cost estimates as well as the preparation of design-build contract documents and post-construction services.

The terms of the contract require completion within 60 months, with a tentative completion date of December 2022. 

The funds will be obligated on an individual task order basis. This, according to 10 U.S. Code § 2304d, means the contract does not procure or specify a firm quantity of services (other than a minimum or maximum quantity) and that it provides for the issuance of orders for the performance of tasks during the period of the contract.
