City Issues RFQ for Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan Update
The City of Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) seeking proposals from professional master planning firms/consultants to provide planning services to update its Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan. An update to the current plan, which was adopted in 1998, will help guide the department’s vision, goals, and strategies for providing high quality parks, facilities, and programs over the next 20 years and will set the stage for continued commitment to creating better lives and a better community for residents. Read the full RFQ here. The proposal due date is 5 pm Tuesday, April 18.
Parks and Recreation provided the following answers to questions about the RFQ April 7. City responses are included in bold.
1. Could you please provide more information about how we should address the two alternate projects in our submission? Should we include these as separate items in the project approach, or integrated with the overall master plan?
The two alternates included in the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) should be included as separate items in the project approach.
2. Could you share the budget for the project?
The City will select a firm on the basis of demonstrated competence and qualifications to perform the services described in this RFQ. Once the most qualified firm is selected, a fair and reasonable price will be negotiated.
3. Will you be advertising for CMAR for your construction method?
The Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan Update is for qualified firms to submit proposals for master planning services only. Although the final plan may include recommendations for constructing new or upgrading existing facilities, there will not be any construction as part of the advertised project.
