1.1. Procurement Process and Schedule.
The County of Passaic has structured a procurement process that seeks to obtain the desired results
described above, while establishing a competitive process to assure that each firm is provided an equal opportunity
to submit a Qualification Statement. Responses to the RFQ will be evaluated in accordance with the criteria
set forth in later section(s) of this RFQ, which will be applied in the same manner to each Qualification Statement
received. The selection of Qualified Respondents is not subject to the provisions of the Local Public Contracts
Law (N.J.S.A. 40A:11-1 et seq). The selection is, however, subject to the New Jersey Local Unit Pay-to-Play Law
(N.J.S.A. 19:44A-20.4 et seq).
Qualification Statements will be reviewed and evaluated by the County of Passaic with assistance from
its financial and legal advisors under no circumstances will a party reviewing or evaluating a qualification
statement do so if their involvement would present conflict of interest as that term defined New Jersey’s Local
Government Ethics law N.J.S.A. 40A:9-22.1 et seq. The Qualification Statements will be reviewed to determine
if the Respondent has met the minimum professional, administrative and financial criteria described in this
RFQ. Based upon the totality of the information contained in the Qualification Statement, including
information about the reputation and experience of each Respondent, the County of Passaic will (in its sole
judgement) determine which Respondents are qualified (to perform the contemplated services). Each Respondent
that meets the requirement of the RFQ (in the sole judgement of the County) will be designated as a Qualified
Respondent and may be given the opportunity to submit a detailed Proposal in response to subsequent RFQ’s
issued by the County of Passaic.
The RFQ process commences with the issuances of this RFQ. The steps involved in the process and the
anticipated completion dates are set forth in Table 1, Procurement Schedule. The County of Passaic reserves
the right to, among other things, amend, modify, alter or cancel the Procurement Schedule upon notice to all
potential Respondents.
All communications concerning this RFQ or the RFQ process shall be directed, in writing, to the
County’s Designated Contact Person as set forth herein.
Subsequent to issuance of this RFQ, the County of Passaic may modify, supplement, amend or cancel
the provisions of this RFQ in order to respond to inquiries received from prospective Respondents or as otherwise
deemed necessary or appropriate by, and in the sole judgment of, the County.
