Technical Proposal




Question: What is due date of this RFP? On the last page it says that the date has been extended one week Please confirm the due date.

Answer: The due date of the technical proposal is 9/27/2012.

Question: The evaluation criteria forms request resumes with 8 years of experience for the PM and 5 years of experience for the key staff; however the sample resume provided shows number of projects. Please clarify which format resume should be used in TP 907.

Answers: The standards for experience (PM & Key Staff) for Planning projects are set either in # of projects, or # of years, depending on the Division in which the project is. Planning Division uses # of years.  Therefore, for this TP 907, # of years should be used for resume. 

(For additional information, see  Notes at: http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/business/procurement/ProfServ/techprop.shtm).

Question: On page 1 of the Evaluation Criteria it says that the solicitation has a State Goal of 25% ESBEs; however, on page 3 of the Solicitation document it indicates a State Goal of 25% SBEs. Please clarify if this solicitation has a 25% SBE OR ESBE participation requirement?

Answers: Page 1 of the Evaluation Criteria should say "State Goal : 25% SBE"

Question: If a firm is certified by NJDOT as an "ESBE" does this fulfill the 25% "SBE" goal; or is "SBE" a different certification?


Answer: No. These are two separate certifications. ESBE is for federal funded projects, and SBE is for State funded projects. Some firms are certified for both ESBE and SBE. For TP-907, only SBE fulfill the 25% requirement.

Question: Can SBE firms and their specific staff members be listed on more than one proposal?


Answer: Yes

Question: In Parts 3 & 4, where the requirements for the PM and some TEAM LEADER/KEY STAFF are to have a NJPE, can a PE in another state with the ability to obtain a NJPE within 6 months of contract award be substituted for this requirement?

Answer: No.

Question: In Parts 3 & 4, where the requirements for the PM and some TEAM LEADER/KEY STAFF are to have a NJPE or a P.P. or an AICP, can a P.T.O.E. be substituted for this requirement?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Can the same person be proposed as a Key Staff Leader for more than one primary task?

Answer: Yes.
