Our Library Board's Building and Equipment Committee met this week and reviewed our draft RFP for consulting services. We wrote the first draft of this document almost three years ago, and did a major revision the following year, when we hoped our Foundation might fund the study. Most of the writing was done by Tony Wieczorek, our Library Business Manager, along with Dean Gazza, the City Facilities Manager and me. The committee gave us some fine tuning suggestions.
Once the Board approves the RFP, we'll send it out to anyone we think might be interested. We've already heard from several consultants and architects who have at least a tentative interest.
Elements of the RFP include:
- The Building
- Future Developments
- RFP Proposal Submittal
- Submittal, Evaluation & Award Process
- Site/Building Tour
- remodel / expand our building
- relocate to a new or different building
- build or establish a branch or branches
