How to Respond to a Request for Proposal

Information about responding to the Selection Advisory Committee's request for proposal process.

This general information supplement has been provided in an effort to clarify the City's expectations when responding to certain sections and topics of the proposal outline. The topics addressed in this supplement are NOT all-inclusive of the information you need to provide for this project. Please refer to Proposal Outline for a complete list of sections and related questions you are expected to respond to.

Mandatory item to be included in proposals: Agreement and insurance certification. One form must have original notary seal. All others may be copies. Be sure that you read and understand the standard agreement to be used for this project before you execute the agreement and insurance certification.
