The purpose of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is for Pender County to acquire comprehensive debris monitoring services. Hurricane Florence resulted in widespread damage throughout Pender County. Initial estimates are that debris collection may total Nine Million Dollars ($9,000,000.00) for vegetative, C&D and other debris. Debris collection is ongoing and monitoring has been ongoing as well. The rapidity with which a contractor can mobilize and transition to the long term monitoring will be a criteria taken into account in making the award. The County anticipates requesting the Board of Commissioners to award the contract on November 5, 2018, so transition and mobilization should be keyed to starting on November 6, 2018.
