Requests for Proposals

The City of Sierra Madre issues bid opportunities, Request for Proposals (RFPs), Request for Qualifications (RFQs) and Public Notices for a variety of services and projects.

Bid Opportunities: For public works and large materials, supplies and equipment procurements, the city will issue an invitation to bid - a formal sealed bid process that typically results in a public bid opening.

Requests for Proposals: A Request for Proposals (RFP) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals for a defined scope of work. An RFP considers and evaluates factors to measure qualification, delivery and service reputation as well as price.

Requests for Qualifications: A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals that formally considers and evaluates factors to measure firms on the basis of demonstrated competency and qualification rather than price.

The City invites qualified individuals or organizations to respond to these requests by submitting the required materials. It is imperative to follow the procedures as outlined in the documents posted or the submission may be disqualified. The initial document will give specifications pertinent to the projects or services requested and will list an appropriate contact name.
