General Description of Requirement

This Request for Proposals (the “RFP”) provides an opportunity to submit proposals for review by the City and, depending on the City’s evaluation of proposals, among other factors, to potentially negotiate with the City to enter into a contract. EXCEPT WHERE EXPRESSLY STATED OTHERWISE IN APPENDIX 1 TO PART C OF THE RFP: (I) NO PART OF THE RFP CONSISTS OF AN OFFER BY THE CITY TO ENTER INTO ANY CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP; AND (II) NO PART OF THE RFP IS LEGALLY BINDING ON THE CITY.

The RFP concerns the City’s interest in procuring a consulting team to assist with the inspection and planning related to bridge infrastructure in Vancouver for five (5) years. The City requires the services of bridge engineers to complete detailed visual inspections of each bridge over the course of the contract and to complete select load ratings, seismic assessments, coating assessments, horizontal lifeline assessments, and produce a needs assessment report and a bridge dashboard documenting the current state of the bridge asset inventory and current and future maintenance and rehabilitation liabilities. Details of the City’s objectives and requirements to which the RFP relates are set out in Part B of the RFP. The City welcomes proposals that are responsive to this RFP (“Proposals”) respecting innovative or novel approaches to the City’s objectives and requirements.
