** ADDENDUM to Wharf RFP for FF&E Design, Procurement and Installation Coordination Services (January 27, 2017)

Due to the number of questions received and continued refinements to the scope and budget for Phase 1 FF&E at the Wharf, Hoffman Madison Waterfront (HMW) has decided to divide the procurement into two stages. Instead of asking for price proposals at this time, HMW is asking interested respondents to submit their qualifications and project approach.  HMW will create a short list of firms who will be provided more detailed information about the scope and budget and will be invited to submit detailed price proposals. The budget estimates are still being refined but applicants should expect the budget amount to increase substantially from what was previously communicated in the Q&A document released on Monday, January 23.  **

Please check back frequently for additional Requests for Proposal.
