Questions and Answers concerning Request for Statement of Qualifications for Professional Geotechnical Engineering Services

(1) Is there any further information regarding the proposal requirements such as font size, margins, page counts…etc.? We do not specify, to this level, the look of the documents submitted. Since the directors will be reviewing all we receive, our advice is to be as brief as possible without diminishing the value of your presentation.

(2) Does Maricopa Flood Control District expect more work to be testing and inspection vs. geotechnical investigations for dams & levees? Yes, in the immediate fiscal year, beginning July 1, we anticipate most of the work we will request to be testing and inspections. The District has one levee within its easements. For a number of reasons, it is unlikely we will need work on it in the near future.
