The proposed Habitat Reserve Program (HRP) projects would include creation, enhancement and/or restoration of sensitive habitats including wetlands, ponds, streams and riparian corridors, in two City and County of San Francisco owned watersheds. Proposed Habitat Development sites are shown in the attached "Habitat Reserve Program Sites" exhibits document of the RFQ.
In order to be selected as a Qualified Candidate on selected projects, all bidders must be pre-qualified unless the invitation to bid for that project provides otherwise. It is mandatory that the respective Candidate fully complete the Candidate Contact Information form, Parts I, II, and III and Part IV of the enclosed questionnaires provide all materials requested herein, and receive approval from the SFPUC as a pre-qualified bidder. No bid will be accepted from a Candidate that has failed to comply with these requirements, if the project is advertised as requiring pre-qualified bidders. If two or more business entities plan to submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture, each entity within the Joint Venture must be separately qualified to bid.
In addition to the requirements listed herein, a Candidate must be willing and able to comply with the contracting requirements of the City and County of San Francisco (the City), set forth in Section 5 of this RFQ.
Each Questionnaire must be signed under penalty of perjury in the manner designated at the end of the Candidate Contact Information form, by an individual who has the legal authority to bind the Contractor on whose behalf that person is signing. If any information provided by a Contractor becomes inaccurate, the Contractor must immediately notify SFPUC and provide updated accurate information in writing, under penalty of perjury.
