Projects with a value up to HK$50 million
The EO will usually consider an application from a consultant who is already on an ArchSD Band. New applicants will be vetted based on the information they have submitted. This will include their company profiles, relevant job experience and overall suitability to work on HKU projects. If considered acceptable, EO will recommend the applicant to the Tenders Board of the University. If approved, the applicant will be included on probation in Group 2 and his performance will be reviewed after one year. If an applicant is not approved, he will be advised accordingly. Our decision on the consultant application will be final.
Projects with a value over HK$50 million
These are generally classified as capital projects and the EO will usually follow ArchSD guidelines regarding the selection of consultants. A number of consultants will be invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for short listing. Consultants who have been selected will then be invited to submit a formal technical and fee proposal and this will be vetted based on standard criteria. Tender interviews will then normally be held before a final decision is made.
