IU releases RFP for med school

The IU School of Medicine has released the official request for proposal for,"the development of a multi-institutional academic health, science and research center in Evansville, Indiana."

The RFP includes the criteria that developers need to follow in order to make a bid on the project. It says the facility has to be a minimum of 170 thousand square feet with room to expand and needs to be ready for occupancy by July 1, 2017.

In Evansville, the Martin Group tells 14 News that they still plan to submit a proposal for the Promenade Development off of Burkhardt Road. 

It's expected there will also be proposals for locations in Warrick County, Downtown Evansville, and at UIS. There's no word Monday night on whether those bids will still happen. 

The deadline to submit a proposal is January 31st.

"Hundreds of people from our community have been involved in helping move this process forward, so today is another important milestone for our community. In that view, it is an exciting moment for our very unique and strong collaborative effort," Dr. Steven Becker, the Director of the IU School of Medicine- Evansville.

Within two weeks, we're told representatives from IU will hold a public forum in Evansville to answer questions from bidders.

In February, the Capital Projects Office will review all of the bids, ultimately choosing one and submitting it to the IU Board of Trustees for review in April.

The project planning is set to start in May.
