Description of Work

UCLA requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the purpose of selecting a consulting firm to provide strategic and technical advisory services related to on-site solar development for UCLA. The successful consultant will sit on the same side of the table as UCLA and help develop, run and evaluate renewable energy at the campus related to LADWP’s Feed-in-Tariff Program.

UCLA is considering a solar development to support the University’s Renewable Energy policies and Carbon Neutrality by 2025 target. Services provided by the successful consultant would likely include RFP process support including development of RFP language and scoring criteria, initial bid screening, pre-bid conferences and site walks, detailed analysis of shortlisted bids, post contracting support through to ensure timely and successful development, including trouble shooting and project management support as needed. The development will be time sensitive and complex as UCLA intends to participate in the LADWP Feed-in-Tariff Program.

The complete RFQ packet will be available at on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. Responses to the RFQ are due by 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. A shortlist of firms will be determined by a screening committee; followed by interviews with the selection committee.

Every effort will be made to ensure that all persons have equal access to contracts and other business opportunities with the University within the limits imposed by law or University policy. Each candidate firm may be required to show evidence of its equal employment opportunity policy.
