CVFiber follows a formal and transparent process for contracting.
The RFP is publicly issued, posted to this page, and announced on the CVFiber Media Outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, and on Front Porch Forum.
The RFP will identify a date by which potential bidders may ask questions about the RFP. The questions must be submitted in writing to [email protected].
A written response to all questions is provided within the period specified in the RFP directly to those parties that sent questions by email and posted on this page.
The response will include the questions asked and the answers, but will not identify the company asking the question.
If required, the RFP may be updated to correct or clarify any issues identified. Such Addenda or Errata shall be posted on this page. Companies are responsible for checking this page before submitting their proposals.
The date that proposals are due will be specified in the RFP, but typically will be four weeks after announcement. Proposals must be submitted by email to [email protected].
If your company does not receive a reply confirmation that your bid has been received within 24 hours, then please resend until you do.
Before selecting one or more companies with which to negotiate a contract, CVFiber may ask clarifying questions, conduct conference calls, and check references. That process may take approximately two weeks.
CVFiber then enters into contract negotiation with the preferred bidder(s). If contract negotiation fails, then different preferred bidder(s) may be chosen.
Contract negotiation is anticipated to complete in a week to ten days and result in the award of the contract.
All RFP contract awards are posted on this page and announced to the CVFiber Media Outlets.
The terms of the contract are later posted publicly on this page, with the confidential information agreed to by the parties redacted.
In addition any Conflict of Interest declarations required of the preferred bidder are also posted publicly on the website.
Work generally begins immediately after award of the contract, unless specified otherwise in the Statement of Work or negotiated contract.
