ORIGINAL RFP NOTICE:
The Yakama Nation's Upper Columbia Habitat Restoration Project is requesting bids for construction of a Salmon Habitat Project to be implemented along the mainstem of the Entiat River in July of 2021. The project will involve all work elements and specifications found in the Project Plans attached to this Request for Bids announcement.
A smaller scope of this project was initially scheduled to be implemented in 2020, and a competitive bid process for the reduced scope was completed in June 2020, including a pre-bid meeting with the design engineer. Unfortunately the project was cancelled for implementation in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and no contract was formally awarded during the earlier bid process. Because of the delay, the project now being solicited for construction has increased in scope to include significant additional restoration elements in the same project area, and the project implementation dates have been changed to fit the in-water work windows in the summer of 2021. Due to the expansion of the project scope, a new virtual pre-bid meeting will be held with the design engineer and project manager prior to accepting bids for this project.
If you are interested in an award for this contract please plan to attend the only pre-bid project meeting scheduled for Tuesday February 16th, 2021 from 9:00-11:30 AM using Zoom video conferencing. To schedule attendance at the pre-bid project meeting please follow the directions provided in the "Zoom Conference Directions.pdf" document below.
