MSBA: Massachusetts State Building Authority
MSBA is the authority acting on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts partnering with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally-appropriate, flexible, sustainable, and cost effective public school facilities. MSBA works with municipalities for the life of the project from Pre-Feasibility through Building Completion and Closeout.
PDP: Preliminary Design Program
PDP is the first reporting stage during the Feasibility Study phase where the District and its team collaborate with the MSBA to document their educational program, generate an initial space summary, document existing conditions, establish design parameters, develop and evaluate alternatives and recommend the most cost effective and educationally appropriate alternatives to the MSBA for further evaluation in the PSR phase.
PSR: Preferred Schematic Design
PSR is the second reporting stage during the Feasibility Study phase where the District and its team collaborate with the MSBA to refine their educational program and space summary, further develop and evaluate alternatives and recommend the most cost effective and educationally appropriate solution to the MSBA Board of Directors for consideration before progressing into Schematic Design.
SD: Schematic Design
SD is the final reporting stage where the District and its team develop a final design program and robust schematic design of sufficient detail to establish the scope, budget and schedule for the Proposed Project.
MCPPO: Massachusetts Certified Public Purchasing Official
The local official responsible for overseeing procurement of supplies, services, design and construction in accordance with public procurement laws that has been certified by the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General.
The OPM and Designer are also required to have a dedicated person who is MCPPO certified.
SOI: Statement of Interest
Submitting an SOI is the critical first step in the MSBA’s program to partially fund the construction, renovation, addition or repair of municipality or regionally owned school facilities located in cities, towns and regional school districts. The SOI allows districts to inform the MSBA about deficiencies that may exist in a local school facility and how those deficiencies inhibit the delivery of the district’s educational program.
