General Overview: Alexandria Transit Company (DASH) has issued this RFP to provide a bus operator safety barrier solution for its fleet of approximately 116 heavy duty transit buses. The barriers are primarily intended to protect bus operators against exposure to pathogens from customers boarding, riding, and alighting the bus.
As always, all terms, conditions, and instructions in the RFP are important and must be carefully reviewed by Proposers. However, we would like to highlight a few points:
- One (1) original and one (1) hard copy of all required proposal materials must arrive by mail or hand delivery in our offices by the proposal due date, Wednesday, August 21, 2020, at 4:00pm.
- Proposer questions are due by Friday, August 14, 2020, to the contact listed below. All questions must be written and responses will be made available on this page by August 14, 2020. If the Company amends the RFP as a result of questions received, the proposal due date may be amended at that time.
- As with any solicitation, any records submitted to the Company in response to this RFP are available for inspection and copying upon request by any person or entity pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. Proposers must identify any protected trade secrets or proprietary information in its RFP submission (see p. 2).
- The Mid-Atlantic Purchasing Team (MAPT) regional rider clause has been included in this RFP. Any resulting Contract, therefore, may be used by other entities in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions to procure bus operator safety barriers, upon mutual agreement of the Contractor and Public Entity.
