Interested firms should submit a single PDF qualifications file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PDF file or hard copy should be received by the Treasurer no later than 3:00 p.m. on January 25th, 2023. Questions may be emailed to email@example.com. No phone calls please.
Proposals will be evaluated based on the responses to the following questions:

Identify the lead architects, engineers, and/or planners who will be working with the District, and give their specific educational project experience.
List and explain any consultants that may be used by your firm for the project(s).
Describe your firm’s experience and background with bus garages and facility improvements for K-12 school districts.
Describe your firm’s sustainable design experience, including any energy services your firm may offer.
List any past projects completed for the District.
List a maximum of four (4) specific and unique qualities, which sets your firm apart from others.
All qualifications submitted by the date due will be evaluated and ranked in an objective manner. This ranking of completed qualifications will determine the need for interviews if deemed necessary by the district.
All qualifications received will be placed in a qualifications file maintained by the District for use when the cost of design services for a project will be less than $50,000, as long as the qualifications are current (i.e., no more than one year old). Design firms are responsible for providing updates to the District directed to the attention of the Treasurer on a yearly basis.
