The Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County (RCDSCC) seeks qualified consultants and contractors to support the RCDSCC’s Forest Health and Wildfire Resiliency Program. The goal of the program is to improve our community’s overall forest health by reengaging ecosystem functions, such as healthier tree stand and understory vegetation densities, in turn reducing wildfire risk and improving fire resiliency. Additionally, the RCDSCC strives to assist landowners in increasing defensible space, improving emergency evacuation/access routes, and promoting watershed ecosystem processes in Santa Cruz County.
The purpose of this solicitation is for the RCDSCC to build a database of qualified professional consultants and contractors to pull from for future projects. Any qualified consultant or contractor interested in working with the RCDSCC for forest health and fuels management projects may fill out and submit this online form to be entered into our database for consideration. As an Informal Request for Qualifications Statement, this form does not constitute a Request for Proposal, and therefore the RCDSCC does not award a contract for services contemplated by the Informal Request for Qualifications Statement. Online form submittals will be compiled in a database that the RCDSCC will use to send out Request for Proposals for future specific projects.
The RCDSCC is requesting experience and qualifications information from consultants and contractors for activities related to forestry projects including:
Projects may include one or more of the above activities. Firms may respond to one or more of the above activities. Firms may respond individually or as a team.
