Questions and Answers

Q:  What do you mean by separate application and database instances?   Are you referring to development and production environments?

A: No.  We have two separate and distinct Subsidence Districts that use different rules and must be maintained in separate databases.   In order to support the two distinct Districts, we must run be able to run two separate instances of the application concurrently.

Q: Will the resume and credential information provided as part of the submittal count towards the page limit requirement?

A: No, included information related to the credentials, experience, and certifications of proposed project personnel will not be counted towards the submittal page limit.

Q: Many of our case study examples that show our capabilities in real-world scenarios are subject to privacy or non-disclosure agreements, making it difficult to provide client specifics to case studies.

A: Understanding the ability of the proposed firm to actually complete the necessary requirements requires some overview of similar previous work, best recommendation is to include as much information as possible to showcase your firm or group’s capability and recent similar project results.
