What is the “Turnkey” delivery option and how does it differ from the “Finance Only” project delivery option?

To ensure timely completion of projects funded by the BCIB Program, approved projects may take advantage of the "Turnkey" Project Design and Delivery option. If an Applicant selects the Turnkey option, they will independently contract with the BCIB Program Engineer to provide resources necessary to design and implement an approved project, and to oversee and lead the project delivery process from planning and design through project completion.

This Turnkey process combines project delivery capabilities of the Program Engineer with Applicant resources to ensure projects are completed in an efficient and cost effective manner, and in compliance with any applicable time restrictions associated with the County-secured financing. The delivery process will fulfill the Applicant project requirements and ensure adherence to both the County’s and Applicant’s schedule, as well as legal and fiduciary requirements. The Program Engineer will administer all phases of the project including planning, design, permitting, bid document preparation, bidding, contracting (including administering contracts between necessary vendors and the Applicant/loan recipient to complete the project), and commissioning. The County will not be a party to the Applicant’s contract with the Program Engineer.

The "Finance Only" Project Design and Delivery option allows the Applicant to utilize their own professional to design, permit, and prepare plans and specifications for the proposed project, to be reviewed by the County.
