General Description of Requirement
The RFP concerns the City’s interest in procuring consulting services related to emerging trends
in automated, connected, electric and shared vehicle technologies. 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.
The City is interested in selecting an entity, which is not, by the terms hereof, barred from
submitting a Proposal, and which does submit a Proposal (each such entity, a “Proponent”)
with the capability and experience to efficiently and cost-effectively meet the objectives and
requirements described in the RFP. The City currently expects to select such a Proponent and
then enter into negotiations with that Proponent, which will conclude in the execution of a
contract between the Proponent and the City (such a contract, an “Agreement”). However,
the City may: (i) decline to select any Proponent; (ii) decline to enter into any Agreement; (iii)
select multiple Proponents for negotiation; or (iv) enter into one or more agreements
respecting the subject matter of the RFP with one or more Proponents or other entities at any
time. The City may also terminate the RFP at any time.
