Inquiries Received and Responses to Inquiries (as of March 31, 2014):
Question: Item number eight under the required format requests proof of inclusion on the Connecticut DOT 2013 prequalification list for the lead firm. Should this be 2014 as the 2013 list is no longer posted on the Conn DOT website? Answer: Yes, this should be the 2014 prequalification list.
Question: Aside from the forms for project qualifications, are we permitted to include an appendix of project experience/descriptions? Answer: Yes. Additional materials beyond the required items listed under "Required Format" are permissible; please note that this does not indicate any obligation by SWRPA or the Consultant Selection Committee to consider additional materials when rankings of submittals are determined.
Question: Are we permitted to include a subconsultant whose DBE status is currently pending, with the assumption that they will be certified in CT in time for the start of work? (i.e., would a pending status satisfy the DBE goal at time of proposal review?) Answer: No. The RFQ explicitly states that proof of current DBE status is required be included in the submittal.
