Retain Commissioning Agent Services
GSA’s suggested practice is to have the CM hire a subcontractor to act as the Commissioning Agent, resulting in no additional contract management responsibilities for GSA.
In this case the CM will lead the RFQ process for commissioning services. There will be exceptions to this suggested practice, and in these cases, GSA will lead the RFQ process for a Commissioning Agent. Regardless of the contracting method, the Commissioning Agent shall be on board by the beginning of Design Development.
