RFQ 19-1: Library Data Center UPS Replacement Center
REQUEST FOR PREQUALIFICATION OF BIDDERS AND PREQUALIFICATION INSTRUCTIONS
FOR MULTIPLE PROJECTS:
LIBRARY DATA CENTER UPS SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Notice is hereby given that the City of Beverly Hills (“CITY”) has determined that all bidders for the Library Data Center UPS Replacement (“Projects”) must be pre-qualified prior to submitting a bid on that Project. This prequalification is valid for two years and for more than one project. It is mandatory that all Contractors who intend to submit a bid, fully complete the prequalification questionnaire, provide all materials requested herein, and be approved by the CITY to be on the final qualified Bidders list.
No bid will be accepted from a Contractor that has failed to comply with these requirements. If two or more business entities submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture, or expect to submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture, each entity within the Joint Venture must be separately qualified to bid. The last date to submit a fully completed questionnaire is 5:00PM on Tuesday, January15, 2019. Contractors are encouraged to submit prequalification packages as soon as possible, so that they may be notified of omissions of information to be remedied or of their prequalification status in advance of the prequalification deadline for this Project.
Answers to questions contained in the attached questionnaire (posted here below) are required. The CITY will use these documents as the basis of rating Contractors with respect to whether each Contractor is qualified to bid on the Project, and reserves the right to check other sources available. The CITY’s decision will be based on objective evaluation criteria.
The CITY reserves the right to adjust, increase, limit, suspend or rescind the prequalification rating based on subsequently learned information. Contractors whose rating changes sufficiently to disqualify them will be notified, and given an opportunity for a hearing consistent with the hearing procedures described below for appealing a prequalification rating.
While it is the intent of the prequalification questionnaire and documents required therewith to assist the CITY in determining bidder responsibility prior to bid and to aid the CITY in selecting the lowest responsible bidder, neither the fact of prequalification, nor any prequalification rating, will preclude the CITY from a post-bid consideration and determination of whether a bidder has the quality, fitness, capacity and experience to satisfactorily perform the proposed work, and has demonstrated the requisite trustworthiness.
The prequalification packages should be submitted under seal to the Office of the City Clerk, City of Beverly Hills, 455 North Rexford Drive, Room 290, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. The following should be clearly marked on the outside of the package “CONFIDENTIAL PREQUALIFICATION STATEMENT FOR THE LIBRARY DATA CENTER UPS SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECTS” For any Questions regarding the questionnaire and the qualification package contact, Mandana Motahari (email: firstname.lastname@example.org
