After reviewing proposals and interviews, the Evaluation Committee evaluated and ranked firms in the following order:

  1. Access Builders
  2. Ziegler Builders
  3. Stuart & Shelby Development
  4. Tron Construction
  5. SMG Contractors: Non-Responsive

On October 4th, 2017, the Board approved the Selection Committee’s recommendation.  The Executive Director will negotiate a contract with the top-ranked CONTRACTOR, Access Builders. The CONTRACTOR may be asked to provide a best and final price and/or to provide additional information.  After the first ranked CONTRACTOR successfully goes through contract negotiations, the negotiated contract will be presented to the SFCLT Board of Directors for final approval.  If a contract cannot be negotiated, SFCLT will either go to the next ranked bidder or may reject all proposals.

Any protest from an actual or prospective bidder must be submitted in writing and received by the SFCLT within five (5) calendar days after the award information has been provided.  Protests must include name and contact information of the protester and a detailed statement citing the provisions being protested.  The Executive Director shall have the authority to settle and resolve any and all protests.  A firm wishing to appeal the protest decision of the Executive Director may submit an appeal in writing, which must be received by the SFCLT within three (3) calendar days of the decision.  The Executive Committee shall investigate the grievance and provide a ruling. Please note that the only grounds for a protest shall be a failure by SFCLT to follow its own review process as advertised in the RFP or equivalent bidding documents.
