Bid Advertisements & Request for Qualifications
Bid Advertisements and Requests for Qualification for Engineering and Capital Improvements projects may be found at the Procurement & Supply Management Department.
Effective July 1, 2010, the Engineering & Capital Improvements Department has changed the way we notify Engineers, Architects, and other professionals of upcoming Requests for Qualifications (RFQ). As of that date, we began utilizing the database that is maintained by the Procurement Department. Based on their submitted areas of interest, firms registered in the database will be notified via email of upcoming consulting opportunities. We are longer mailing out RFQ notifications. If required by a funding agency, notifications will still be advertised in a local newspaper.
In order for your firm to continue receiving notification, it will be necessary for your firm to register with the Procurement Department following their procedures on the City’s website.
