The Request for Proposals
The RFQ was released on November 20, 2017 with responses due December 20, 2017. During the process there were four things to note:
AMENDMENT #1. RFQ Page 6. "12. WORKPLAN. Outline a workplan of the process with schedule, including deliverables, tasks, and resource assignments (include percentage of time (hours) per project team member)." To clarify, at this stage of the process, we would like to see a high-level approach and get an understanding of which team members will be working on which components, i.e. who will actually be doing the work. We don't need to know the exact hours / time spent at this point, that will come at the RFP stage.
SUMMARY Q&A. All questions and "intent to submit" should have been sent to us. Please find below, the compiled Summary Q&A of all questions asked to-date ( as of 12.08.2017). One correction re: question Q29, underground parking may be a possibility for the Plaza, but we would need to very clearly understand overall cost-benefit.
WEBINAR. A webinar on the project was held on December 11, 2017 from 3:30-4:30pm EST as an opportunity for more context on the project and a dialogue, as well as address any unanswered questions. A link was made available to those that participated and/or we've been in communication with.
SUMMARY OF IDEAS. The preliminary input on the Plaza from the Big Tent Event was posted online.
