Vendor Resources

FPC projects come in various shapes and sizes providing many opportunities for vendors to be a part of the exciting things happening at UH.  These opportunities include:

Contractor Opportunities:  The larger construction projects are formally bid on by prime contractors.  Sub-contractors are encouraged to reach out to the prime contractors awarded a project.

Job Order Contracts (JOC):  FPC has three Job Order Contractors that perform work for the University on projects typically minor in nature.  These contracts are typically two-three years in duration and prior to expiration a new solicitation will be issued for response from the vendor community.

Professional Services Opportunities:  Larger and specialized projects are formally solicited, via a Request for Qualifications (RFQ).

Continuing Service Agreements (CSA):  FPC has engaged various professional service providers to assist with the ongoing needs of the University.  These contracts are typically two-three years in duration and prior to expiration a new solicitation will be issued for response from the vendor community.
