The City contracts for various services, including maintenance, engineering, legal and recreation services. Depending on the estimated cost of the work and other considerations, the City may issue either a Request for Proposals (RFPs) or Request for Qualifications (RFQs). Per State and City policy, for certain types of professional, legal or recreation services, the City may review, evaluate and select consultants based off their Statement of Qualifications (SOQ). To be considered for work with the City, consultants that have registered for these types of services must upload an SOQ to the City's roster.
