1.0 INTRODUCTION
This Request for Information (“RFI”) is issued by Capital Regional District (“CRD”) on behalf of Integrated Water Services (“IWS”).

For additional information on the CRD please visit the following site:

1.1 RFI OBJECTIVE
CRD is seeking information, through this RFI process, from interested parties, on the supply of mechanized forest ecological thinning services for the purpose of forest fuel reduction, reducing tree drought stress and increasing biodiversity. This RFI is intended to gather information that could assist CRD in the development of a future procurement process.

Interested parties are invited to submit a response to CRD. Responses should include ideas, information and recommendations that could result in clarification of the requirements, cost-saving opportunities and the identification of potential problem areas with this initiative. Respondents are requested to provide a focused response to the RFI questions.

Where applicable provide the cost for recommended products or services. This information will be used to better develop budgeting requirements.
At the sole discretion of CRD, parties may be invited to provide presentations or demonstrations. In certain situations Proponents may be given an outline of what is to be presented. During these presentations Proponents will demonstrate the operation or use of equipment, supplies or software and the Purchaser’s’ staff will have an opportunity for a hands on experience.

For avoidance of doubt this RFI is issued for information-gathering purposes and is not intended to be a formal legally binding “Contract A” bidding process. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, this RFI will not necessarily result in any subsequent negotiations, direct contract award, invitational tendering process or open tendering process and does not constitute a commitment by CRD to procure any goods or services or proceed with any commercial arrangement.

This RFI will not be used to evaluate, rank or select interested parties nor will it be used to prequalify or screen any parties for a subsequent competitive bidding process, if any.

Responses should be received by 14:00 Pacific Time on December 8, 2021 (“RFI Closing”).
All questions and inquiries concerning this RFI may be submitted via email to the Authorized Contact designated by or before November 24, 2021 noon Pacific time.
