CCMP Revision RFPs Q&A

What is the deadline for completing the scope of work for this contract?

September 30, 2023

 

Would the consultant be able to continue after September 28? Or would they have to compete again? 

What Estuario is looking for with this proposal is to know how your team would manage the entire CCMP revision process, from beginning to end, in order to deliver a revised CCMP that not only complies with EPA’s guidelines but also provides a clear path forward to continue working as a partnership in the restoration and conservation of water resources in the San Juan Metro Area. 

 

For administrative purposes, we are only able to guarantee a contract for the first portion of the project, which is developing a comprehensive and robust plan that will guide our leadership and stakeholders throughout the three-year process. We would award a contract extension to the selected consultant if its performance up to this point is satisfactory.

 

Would Estuario be comfortable with contracted translation services? Are secondary translation services okay? Or are you interested in dual language capabilities? 

Translation services are acceptable for the project management RFP, but not so for the stakeholder engagement RFP. Any and all associated costs with contracting translation services would be the responsibility of the contractor. 

 

Will you share the recording and/or presentation?

We will share the presentation with everyone who has participated in the informational meetings. The recordings are only for internal reference only.

 

If applying to both the project management and stakeholder engagement opportunities, should we submit one document/application? 

You must submit two separate applications and documents: one for project management and one for stakeholder engagement. You must also specify whether you would like to be considered for either or, or whether you are interested only in a contract for both.

 

Clarification on attachments for firms who already work in Puerto Rico.

You must submit your evidence of policy from the Corporación del Fondo del Seguro del Estado 

 

Would we recompete for an RFP in October?

Could you please clarify if the end result of this contract would be the completed CCMP? Or is this contract intended instead to lay the groundwork for CCMP development, which would happen later (under other contracts)?

I did not see a budget listed in the RFP. Would it be possible for you to provide information about how much funding is available for the contract? This would be very helpful in order to develop a proposal that fits within the available funding.

We are interested in hearing directly from applicants about what they believe is an appropriate budget to deliver the product and the working experience we have detailed in the RFP.
