Responses to RFQ Due Monday, March 5, 2018, 5:00 p.m.
Posted Date: 2/8/2018 4:00 PM
The City of Hercules oversees a full range of development activities and public capital improvements. A primary function of the City of Hercules is the review, approval, and/or construction of both public and private infrastructure and development projects, which provide new jobs, housing opportunities, services, and amenities for the citizens of Hercules. With limited staff and resources, the City of Hercules must contract many planning, building, and engineering functions as needs arise.

The objective of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process is to establish an approved list of qualified professional service providers for a wide variety of on-going and as-needed services that the City regularly requires to review, approve, and/or implement development plans and projects and to meet reporting requirements. The purpose of establishing an approved list of professional service providers is to expedite the contracting process and thus minimize costly delays in contracting. By establishing an approved list of service providers for the categories of services described in the RFQ, the City will be able to contract for professional services more efficiently and expeditiously and thereby increase staff effectiveness and reduce operating and project costs. However, the City reserves the right to require subsequent proposals from qualified vendors for specific tasks and projects.

Service providers may respond to one or more of the service categories described in the RFQ, including comprehensive services from initial planning review through final construction inspection.
