Questions and Responses:
Has a consultant already been selected or involved behind the scenes?
What is the budget for the project?
We understand that the scope of work in the RFP represents a substantial amount of specialized work and corresponding consultant fee. The master planning is a tribal council priority and the council has budgeted a significant amount of tribal funds for the project. We are confident that the work and deliverables outlined in the RFP reflect the expectations of the council and the tribal administration for this project. We are hoping for proposals that include fair, well-considered price tags to accomplish that work and prepare those deliverables. If proposed fees are less than our budgeted funds, we may expand the scope of work or there will be cushion for unanticipated contingencies. If proposed fees are more than our budgeted funds, we will either have to go back to council and ask for more funding or work with the council on paring back the scope of work to match the budget.
Can you provide a copy of the sign-in sheet from the October 6, 2016 site tour?
Yes, links to scans of the sign-in sheet and the informational handout provided for Heronswood are below:
The RFP says proposals are limited to 10 pages. Is that single sided or double sided printing on each page?
10 double-sided sheets (20 pages of text) are allowed.
How will the tribe review and select a consultant and will there be candidate interviews?
All proposals meeting the deadline, length, submission method, content, and team composition/qualification requirements of the RFP will be reviewed and scored based on the Selection Criteria listed in the RFP. A tribal review committee will conduct the review and scoring.
The review committee will conduct interviews with top scoring candidate consultant teams. Interviews will be one hour with a half hour allowed for a presentation by each candidate team and a half hour for questions from the review committee.
