The purpose of this request for qualifications (RFQ) is to select a Prime Contractor (Contractor) to assist in evaluating applications for energy facilities and transmission corridor designations, monitoring compliance for permitted facilities, reviewing petitions to amend or modify permitted facilities, and supporting other activities in the areas of environmental impact assessment, engineering, and related regulatory matters.

The California Energy Commission (CEC) is seeking one team of professional engineering and environmental technical specialists led by a Contractor. A single Firm, and not a group of representatives from different companies, must submit a statement of qualifications (SOQ) as the prime contractor. The prime contractor will be responsible for all contract administrative duties, analysis, project management, report preparation, quality assurance, graphics support services, directing team members in all contract provisions, and participating in technical work assignments. The Contractor and the team can be from the same pre-existing organization, such as a full-service consultant Firm, or they can be from separate organizations (or self-employed) and form a partnership that can successfully work together for purposes of this RFQ. The term “Firm” is used in this RFQ to refer to the company or entity submitting an SOQ.
