Notice Summary:





(CIP 301-657)



Notice is hereby given that the City of Foster City (City) has determined that all Contractors bidding on the Foster City Levee Improvements Project (CIP 301-657, hereinafter referred to as “Project”) must be prequalified before submitting a bid. It is mandatory that all Contractors who intend to submit a bid for the Project fully complete the Prequalification Questionnaire and provide all materials requested herein and be approved by the City to be on the final prequalified bidders list. 


No bid for the Project will be accepted from a contractor that has failed to comply with these requirements. If two or more business entities submit a bid as part of a Joint Venture or expect to submit a bid as a Joint Venture; only the Joint Venture itself will be allowed to bid if qualified, otherwise each entity within the Joint Venture must be separately qualified to bid separately.


In the interest of brevity and clarity, all references to “Contractor” in this Request for Qualifications shall mean a Contractor submitting a Prequalification Submittal as a corporation, as an individual, as a partnership, or as a joint venture. 

Following the solicitation of bids from prequalified contractors, and bidding for the Project, the City may award a construction contract to the lowest responsive, responsible bidder that has been deemed qualified through participation in this process. The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids from prequalified contractors, and to rebid the Project using any method it chooses, including another competitive bid without prequalification. This prequalification process applies to prospective bidders on this Project and this project only.


License Required


Contractors wishing to be prequalified for the work described in this Request for Qualifications shall posses a California Class “A” Contractor’s License.

610 Foster City Boulevard

Foster City, CA  94404


Submittals must be received no later than 2:00 pm on THURSDAY APRIL 2, 2020. Late submissions will not be accepted. 


All submittals must be delivered in person by the Contractor, delivered by courier or delivery service, or mailed via United States Postal Service.  No facsimile or email will be accepted. Failure to provide a completed Prequalification Questionnaire before the time and date specified above precludes prequalification and subsequent participation in the bidding and construction of the Project.


Prequalification packages may be obtained, beginning on February 19, 2020 in the City Public Works Department office between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM and between 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Copies of the prequalification package are also available in electronic pdf format on the City’s website:


It is also noted that any contractor, whether the prime contractor or a subcontractor, performing steel sheet pile installation or mitigation planting for this Project will also be required to meet certain minimum experience qualifications that will be available at the time of bidding, and evaluated thereafter to identify the lowest responsible bidder. Inclusion of any contractor on the final prequalified bidders list as a result of the process described herein shall not be construed as an explicit or implicit indication from the City that the prequalified contractor is necessarily qualified to perform sheet pile installation or mitigation planting for the Project. The City reserves the right to fully evaluate contractor and/or subcontractor qualifications in conformance with the Project’s contract documents.


Notification of Determination


Contractors that submit a Prequalification Questionnaire will be notified in a Notice of Determination regarding their qualification status, at least 10 calendar days prior to solicitation for bids. Contractors are advised that the act of submitting a Prequalification Questionnaire is not a guarantee that the City will determine that the Contractor is prequalified.  A list of prequalified contractors will be available during the bid period from the City.
