The Planning Department’s current pre‐qualified consultant pools with expertise in the preparation of environmental impact, transportation, historical resources, and archeological resources documents, established in September 2012, will expire after two years on September 2014. The Planning Department will be putting out a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for As-Needed Consultant Services for Environmental, Transportation, Historic Resources, and Archeological Review in early Summer 2014, in order to have the new pre‐qualified consultant pools in effect by September 2014. Accordingly, please check this webpage and the City and County of San Francisco Office of Contract Administration website (OCA’s http://sfgsa.org/index.aspx?page=359) for updates on the upcoming RFQ for environmental consultant services. Please also email the Planning Department’s Environmental Consultant Pool Manager, Devyani Jain (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you wish to receive email notification of RFQ availability.
Please note that while Planning Department staff is available to answer questions regarding the upcoming RFQ for consultant services, this is an independent and objective selection process jointly administered by OCA and the Planning Department. Consultation with the Environmental Review Officer (ERO) and Planning staff has no bearing on selection for the Planning Department’s pre‐qualified consultant pools.
