**Addendum 1 has been issued to RFP # 221129-237.** Pender County is requesting proposals from experienced and qualified contractors to enter into contracts at no immediate or annual cost to Pender County. Contractors will be required to provide emergency disaster recovery services including, but not limited to, clean-up, demolition, removal, reduction and disposal of debris resulting from a natural or manmade disaster as directed by Pender County in order to eliminate immediate threats to public health and safety.
The County intends to enter into two (2) contracts: one with a “Primary” contractor and one with a “Secondary” contractor. The “Primary” contractor will be on a first contact basis for all disasters and emergencies that may require debris removal, reduction, disposal or other cleanup activities. The “Secondary” contractor will be activated to serve as an additional contractor at the sole discretion of the County. Pender County will reserve the right to decide, at the guidance and recommendation of the County Manager and/or the Emergency Management Director when and if the “Secondary” contract will be activated.
Responding contractors must, at a minimum, have performed at least three (3) debris removal, reduction, and disposal operations in excess of 150,000 cubic yards and provide references for the communities where these operations took place. Contractors will need to be licensed to do business in North Carolina and certify that they are not included on the debarred FEMA list or the NC Debarred Vendors list.
The County is seeking to enter into a three (3) year agreement with the option to extend for three additional one-year periods with three contractors to provide the services contained within this RFP.
