The Planning Department’s current pre‐qualified consultant pools with expertise in the preparation of environmental impact, transportation, historical resources, and archeological resources documents for both publicly and privately sponsored projects, established in September 2012, will expire soon. The Planning Department has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for As-Needed Consultant Services for Environmental, Transportation, Historic Resources, and Archeological Review on October 6, 2014 in order to have new pre‐qualified consultant pools. The RFQ packet is available here; please check for any modifications to the RFQ packet via this RFQ packet link.
The RFQ pre-qualification conference is on October 28, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. The conference will be held at the Planning Information Center 1660 Mission Street, Conference Room 2001, San Francisco, CA 94103.
The RFQ is posted on the City’s Bids and Contracts Listing Database at http://mission.sfgov.org/OCABidPublication/ (select “Consultants and Professional Services” from the “Category” drop-down menu). If you wish to receive any further updates, please subscribe to the Department’s email list for Contracting and Bid Opportunities.
Please note that the RFQ process is an independent and objective selection process, and consultation with the Environmental Review Officer (ERO) and Planning staff has no bearing on selection for the Planning Department’s pre‐qualified consultant pools.
If you have any questions regarding the upcoming RFQ, please contact Danny Yeung at firstname.lastname@example.org.
