CMAA CEO Update

Andrea S. Rutledge, CAE, CMAA President & CEO

January 2020 CMAA | RFP Request for CM+CCM Services

In 2020, the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) will relocate to new offices in the Tysons Corner (Northern Virginia) area. CMAA expects that significant tenant improvements (TI) will be required for any new space to be leased and occupied. In keeping with its commitment to the value of professional construction management services and to advancing the value of CMAA’s signature credential, the Certified Construction Manager (CCM), CMAA seeks a qualified CCM to serve as its project/construction manager and owner’s representative.


CMAA expects to lease and improve 5,600-6,000 SF of commercial office space. The architect has already been selected. CMAA expects to use design-bid-build as the delivery method for this project. CMAA expects the PM/CM/Owner’s Representative to lead a collaborative process that recognizes and values the perspectives and needs of all stakeholders, while placing the project’s objectives at the forefront.


In order to match the scale of the project to firm size and to manage the number of proposals, the list of firms to which this RFP has been sent is modest (approximately 22). The firms and practitioners are within 100 miles of the project and are either small or mid-size corporations.

Questions regarding the RFP should be directed to Laura Skoff, Vice President, Operations.
