The Office of Capital Programs has identified a need for professional moving services in support of capital projects within the District. Many of the construction projects are located in buildings where there are existing contents such as desks, furniture, equipment and learning materials.  Many of these projects must be completed within compressed construction schedules, which often include holidays and summer recess. To prevent costly project delays due to building contents interfering with construction, the Office of Capital programs intends to utilize a professional moving firm to plan, manage, and implement moving and storing of building contents in sequence with construction schedules. The assignments will be monitored by an inspector and project manager to ensure the contractor meets the established budget and schedule. This work is in support of the Operations goal to provide safe, healthy and welcoming learning environments for all students.
