  1. San Francisco Public Works (“SFPW”), a department of the City and County of San Francisco (“City”) seeks qualified firms (“Proposers”) to provide financial consulting services for various infrastructure development projects including, but not limited, to the Mission Bay North and South Project Areas, Potrero Power Station, Bayland North, Candlestick, Hunters Point, and India Basin.
  2. The Developer is required to finance and build the horizontal improvements (streets and public utilities) and some of the public uses (i.e., parks) and to transfer land on which private residential and commercial uses are to be constructed by Vertical Developers.
  3. Master Developers will seek reimbursement from their respective Community Facilities Districts (“CFD’s”), and other public financing sources. As required, SFPW will review and consider these reimbursement requests in conjunction with the selected Consultant under this RFQ. Consequently, Proposers must have experience working with municipalities (or similar government agencies).
  4. Anticipated Contract Term and Contract Amount: The anticipated contract term and contract amount awarded to Proposers resulting from this RFQ may vary and shall be determined at the time of Contract award based on the awarding Department’s business needs.
  5. Prequalification Process: The City shall evaluate Proposals to create a prequalified list or pool of Proposers (“Prequalified Pool”). The City may use the Prequalified Pool, at its sole and absolute discretion, to select for negotiation of contracts on an as-needed basis for two (2) years, and up to four (4) years from the prequalification date if the requirements of San Francisco Administrative Code Section 21.4 (c)(2) are met. Firms qualified under this RFQ are not guaranteed a contract.
  6. How to Submit a Proposal: Proposers must submit proposals and all related attachments, into the SF City Partner Website: https://sfcitypartner.sfgov.org/pages/index.aspx by December 15, 2021, no later than 2:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time (PST). Proposals submitted by fax or by email will not be accepted. Late or partial submittals will not be considered and failure to adhere to the submission requirements specified in Section 4 of the RFQ may be deemed non-responsive and will not be considered for prequalification. Additional Information and Digital files of the RFQ Package may be downloaded at no cost through the Supplier Portal at https://sfcitypartner.sfgov.org/. Notices regarding Addenda and other RFQ changes will also be posted on SF City Partner.

  10. Requirements: The Local Business Enterprise (“LBE”) Subcontracting Participation Requirement and Good Faith Outreach requirements of Chapter 14B of the San Francisco Administrative Code shall apply to this RFQ. LBE Subcontracting Participation Requirements, unless waived, will be assessed by the Contract Monitoring Division (“CMD”) prior to the selection of a consultant from the Prequalified Pool, established from this solicitation. Rating Bonuses may apply to each Resulting contract to eligible LBE/LBE Joint Venture proposers. Refer to RFQ for additional details regarding application of LBE rating bonuses. For any CMD-related questions, contact Selormey Dzikunu by email at Selormey.Dzikunu@sfdpw.org.
  11. Subject to certain exceptions, Proposers are advised that this Solicitation is subject to the requirements of Administrative Code Chapter 12X, which prohibits the City from entering into a contract with a Proposer that (a) has its headquarters in a state that has enacted a law that perpetuates discrimination against LGBT people and/or has enacted a law that prohibits abortion prior to the viability of the fetus, or (b) will perform any or all of the work on the contract in such a state. Chapter 12X requires the City Administrator to maintain a list of such states, defined as “Covered States” under Administrative Code Sections 12X.2 and 12X.12. The list of Covered States is available on the website of the City Administrator (https://sfgsa.org/chapter-12x-state-ban-list).
