The construction and safety agency for a key city in California on Thursday released a Request for Qualification (RFQ) for tech contractors capable of meeting a wide variety of tech-related needs.
The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) compiles a list of pre-qualified contractor services that may be available when called in when needed and for limited periods. Areas in which the city is planning assistance include:
- System development, implementation and programming
- Database management and optimization
- Systems analysis and integration
- Capture, convert and load GIS data and documents
- General IT consulting services
All contracts would be awarded under “framework agreements”, which are similar to framework agreements, generally giving a jurisdiction more flexibility and efficiency in awarding contracts than fixed scope contracts.
A mandatory proponent conference will be held online at 10:00 am on July 22, with registration and other details available online. Further information will be emailed to registrants.
The city seeks information from companies or individuals interested in software publishing; personalized programming; system design; computer installation management services; data processing, hosting and related services; as well as other functions related to computing, science, technology and professional services.
The City of Los Angeles Virtual Business Support Network posted the RFQ along with links to the scope of work, forms for interested suppliers and other essential solicitation details.
Relevant dates are the mandatory proponent conference of July 22; the 11:59 pm “awareness” deadline on August 4; the deadline for submission at 10 a.m. on August 19; and the abstract deadline is 4:30 p.m. on August 20.
