Fiber Optic Network

Bid Closing, July 30, 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this network planning RFP require specifying equipment or hardware type?

The City is not asking for equipment specifications in this RFP. The City will provide those in the next build RFP.

Do we need to call out equipment and technology for each of the fiber termination and drop location?

No. We will provide that in the next RFP. We are only looking to verify routes, determine viability of existing conduits, and get specific GIS-level detail to our proposed routes to enable a more robust build RFP based on the information obtained from this.

What sort of proposal are you seeking for the proposed cost of vendors’ designs?

At this time, the City is only asking for an estimated cost of the design, based on the vendor’s previous experience. We are not yet seeking an actual bid.

Do you want us to provide an estimated construction cost as part of the RFP submittal?

We are not seeking construction costs at this time. Responses to this RFP should reflect both driving the routes and verifying that the underground conduit is clear and viable for fiber install for the build.

As part of “Section 1: General Information. Criteria for Selection,” Cost Proposal states: “Vendors must provide a cost-effective solution for the City, including design.”  Does this mean that the vendor should submit a design as part of the RFP response? Or just cost for the design?

The response should include a design

Does the City anticipate a certain percentage of aerial vs. underground? 


Does the City own any of the utility poles? 


If a vendor offers both design/engineering and construction services, can the vendor bid on construction services if the same vendor is providing the design services?
