Project Overview: 

A special consultant will be selected by the State of Tennessee to establish program requirements for a new Data Center.  The facility will serve as a redundant center to the one built by the State in 2010. It is intended that 50% of the State’s production services will reside in each Data Center with each backing up the other in case of a disaster. In addition to providing programming services, the consultant will be asked to assess up to three (3) potential building sites identified by the State to determine which is best suited to accommodate the new building program.  Deliverables will include all documentation generated from the studies as well as cost estimates relating to each identified design option.

Special Design or Submission Requirements:  

In order to be considered for selection, the consultant must demonstrate familiarity with the design and construction of both conventional and modular data centers. Use of special consultants is acceptable however, consultants responding to this solicitation will be evaluated based on their role as prime service provider demonstrating core experience in the design of this particular building type.  Although the new facility will ultimately be located in Nashville or surrounding areas, a regional office presence in Middle Tennessee will not be a criterion for selection.

Anticipated SBC Approval Date:
