Insurance Type Amount
  1. San Francisco Public Works (Public Works), City and County of San Francisco (City), intends to award contracts to a minimum of three (3) responsive, responsible, and qualified Contractors to create a prequalified pool to provide Hazardous Materials Abatement Contracting Services on an as-needed basis.
  2. Qualified Hazardous Materials Abatement Contractors shall perform work on an “if and as-needed” basis to assist in the handling of construction-related tasks in areas where contamination, environmental, and public health and safety issues are of concern. The work will involve as-needed labor, materials, equipment, insurance, and bonding to perform hazardous materials abatement services for property owned, operated, and/or maintained by the City and County of San Francisco (the City). Projects often emphasize asbestos abatement and lead removal but may include roofing, electrical, soft-demolition and mass-demolition, painting repairs and renovation work as they are incidental to other types of hazardous materials including but not limited to the cleanup, removal, abatement and or remediation of arsenic, mercury, PCB’s, fluorescent lights, transformers, ballasts, paints, chemicals, soils, thinners, toners, cleaning supplies, waste oils, mold, sewage, and pigeon/bird waste.
  3. The product of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and the selection process will be a Master Agreement (Contract) with each selected firm or team. Each awarded Contract shall have a three-year term. Contract term may be extended at the City’s discretion by one year. Work under the Contract will be issued by Contract Service Orders (CSOs). Each awarded contract shall be for a maximum contract value of $3,000,000. The City has the option to increase the contract value through contract modification during the term of the contract. Contract Service Orders (CSOs) will be issued during the first three (3) years only and the cumulative value of CSOs awarded each Contractor shall not exceed the maximum value of their contract. If the City decides to extend the contract duration by an additional year, CSOs may be issued during the additional year. The City reserves the right to change the number of contracts and contract amount limits to be awarded.
  4. Contractors may not hold more than one (1) master agreement for the same scope of services at any time. Contractors may not be awarded a new Master Agreement while they are still performing work under an existing Master Agreement for the same scope of services.
  5. Since this is an “As-Needed” contract, award of a master agreement does not guarantee that the selected firms will perform all or any portion of the services described in this RFQ, nor does it guarantee that the maximum amount will be expended. The maximum contract dollar amount does not represent a guaranteed revenue source for any of the selected firms.
  6. Submittals will be accepted until 2:00 P.M. Pacific Time, October 27, 2021. Consultants shall submit Proposals as specified and required in the RFQ package. Late submittals will not be considered. Additional Information and Digital files of the RFQ Package may be downloaded at no cost through the Supplier Portal. Notices regarding Addenda and other RFQ changes will also be posted in the Supplier Portal.
  7. The LBE subconsulting participation requirement for this RFQ is 10%. For all CMD related questions, contact Finbarr Jewell by email: Finbarr.Jewell@sfgov.org.
  8. Questions regarding the RFQ must be submitted no later than September 1, 2021, 4:00 P.M. by email to the Contract Manager at: Robert.Begley@sfdpw.org.
  9. There will be no pre-proposal conference for this RFQ.
  10. Consultants with billing classifications subject to prevailing wages on public works projects may not be awarded a contract unless such Consultants are registered with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) at the time of award. Please visit the DIR website for more information: http://www.dir.ca.gov/Public-Works/PublicWorks.html.
  11. This Contract is subject to the requirements of Administrative Code Chapter 12X, which prohibits the City from entering into any Contract with a Consultant that has its United States headquarters in a state with laws that perpetuate discrimination against LGBT populations (“Covered State”) or where any or all of the work on the contract will be performed in any of those states. A list of states on the Covered State List can be found at: http://sfgsa.org/chapter-12x-anti-lgbt-state-ban-list.
