The Town of Upton has received $30,000 in grant funds from the Massachusetts Community Planning Grant. The grant funds were approved to provide the Town professional services for an Inclusionary Zoning Market Feasibility Study and technical assistance pursuant to the requirements of the MBTA Communities MGL Chapter 40A Section 3A guidelines provided by EHOLC. The Town is requesting quotes from qualified parties. See below.
1 - Is the RFQ open until qualified candidates have submitted?
Correct. An initial RFQ was issued with a deadline, however, no bids were received by the original response deadline. Due to increased demand for this type of services from municipalities it is understood that many firms do not have openings at this time. Therefore, the RFQ is remaining open until the LUIS Department has received qualified responses.
2. Is there additional funding available beyond the $30,000 in grant funds?
No. The only funding that will be dedicated to this RFQ is the quoted amount of grant funds. It is not anticipated that any additional funds will be made available. If respondents feel they can only submit quotes for a portion of the work they are encouraged to do so.
