The Union County Improvement Authority (“UCIA”) is soliciting Qualification Statements from interested persons and/or firms for the provision of the below-listed services. Through a Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) process, persons and/or firms interested in assisting the UCIA with the provision of such services must prepare and submit a Qualification Statement in accordance with the procedure and schedule set forth in the applicable RFQ. The UCIA will review Qualification Statements only from those persons and/or firms that submit a timely Qualification Statement containing all information required by the UCIA as set forth in the applicable RFQ. The UCIA intends to qualify persons and/or firms that (a) possess the professional, financial and administrative capabilities to provide the proposed services, and (b) agree to and meet the terms and conditions determined by the UCIA.
The selection of qualified persons and/or firms is not subject to the bidding provisions of the Local Public Contracts Law, N.J.S.A. 40A:11-1 et seq., but is to be guided by the “New Jersey Local Unit Pay-to-Play” Law, N.J.S.A. 19:44A-20.4 et seq. The UCIA has structured a procurement process that seeks to obtain the desired results, while establishing a competitive, fair and open process, to assure that each person and/or firm is provided an equal opportunity to submit a Qualification Statement in response to the RFQ.
The RFQ documents will become available on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 10 a.m. They may be obtained via download from the UCIA’s website – http://www.ucimprovementauthority.org/. Questions pertaining to this Notice should be directed to Lisa M. da Silva, RMC, Clerk of the Authority, Union County Improvement Authority, at (732) 382-9400 ext. 228 or LdaSilva@ucia-nj.org.
