Description

San Francisco Public Works (Public Works), City and County of San Francisco (City) announces a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the provision of tree and landscape watering at various locations.

Due to various City initiatives, the current list of watering sites for which the Bureau of Urban Forestry (BUF) is responsible for maintaining has grown significantly in recent years; outpacing the speed at which the City can hire qualified staff to serve the needs for tree watering. While BUF works on plans to increase its watering staff and resolve equipment needs, this contract will help the current watering staff keep pace with the City’s ever-accelerating watering requirements.

The City intends to award one or more contract(s) for up to $200,000 contract amount with an original term of three (3) years starting from the issuance of the Notice to Proceed. In addition, the City shall have options to extend the term of the contract for up to one (1) additional year, not to exceed a total contract term of four (4) years. The City reserves the right to change the number of contracts and contract amount limits to be awarded. Award of a contract neither guarantees all or a portion of the contract amount, nor does it guarantee that the projected amount would be expended.

Proposals will be received at 1155 Market Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco, California 94103 until 3:00 P.M. Pacific Time, August 25, 2017. Proposers shall submit Proposals as specified and required in the RFP package. Late submittals will not be considered. Digital files of the RFP Package may be downloaded at no cost at: www.sfpublicworks.org/biddocs. Notices regarding Addenda and other RFP changes will be posted to www.sfpublicworks.org/biddocs. Additional information is available from the Public Works’ Contracts, Bid Opportunities and Payments webpage at: www.sfpublicworks.org.

Rating bonuses will be applied as per San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 14B. The LBE Subconsulting Participation Requirement is 20%. In accordance with Chapter 14B requirements, all Proposers shall submit documented good faith efforts with their proposals except those who exceed the above stated LBE Subconsulting Participation Requirement by 35% (i.e. 27% Total LBE Participation for this RFQ). Proposers must achieve 80 out of 100 points to be deemed responsive. Refer to CMD Form 2B. Contact Lupe Arreola at 415-558-4059 for details.

Questions regarding the RFP must be submitted no later than August 16, 2017, 4:00 P.M. by email to the Contract Manager at: Ken.Wysocki@sfdpw.org.

In accordance with San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 6, no proposal is accepted and no contract in excess of $600,000 is awarded by the City and County of San Francisco until such time as (a) the Mayor or the Mayor’s designee approves the contract for award (b) the Director of Public Works then issues an order of award.
