The Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD) has established a Vendor Roster to expedite the solicitation and award of quotes for supplies, equipment, and services on purchases up to $75,000. The roster enhances the efforts of SVFD to reach out to the Vendor community by improving access opportunities and encouraging competition.
The Vendor Roster provides a pool of registered vendors for various purchases of goods and services. When the need to have a purchase is identified, SVFD may solicit quotes from qualified vendors on the Vendor List in the appropriate category. These projects are not advertised in the newspaper. Instead, SVFD will solicit quotes from at least three (3) vendors in the appropriate Vendor List category.
SMALL WORKS ROSTER
The Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD) has established a Small Works Roster to expedite the solicitation and award of quotes / bids on small public works projects up to $350,000 in value. The Roster enhances the efforts of SVFD to reach out to the Contractor community by improving access to opportunities and encouraging competition.
The Small Works Roster provides a pool of registered contractors for various small construction projects. When the need to have a small public work performed is identified, SVFD may solicit quotes/bids from qualified contractors recorded on the Small Works Roster in the appropriate category. These projects are not advertised in the newspaper. Instead, SVFD will solicit quotes/bids from at least five (5) contractors on the appropriate small works roster specialty. If the roster specialty contains less than five (5) contractors, then the total of all contractors registered within that specialty will be invited to submit quotes/bids.
Trade specialties will be assigned based on the categories selected on the application. Contractors are encouraged to apply only for those trade specialties that they are able and willing to perform. Bid bonds are not required and the bidding period is short. A payment and performance bond and the five percent (5%) statutory retainage are required for any project costing over $35,000 including tax. The bond and retainage may be waived on a case-by-case basis for projects less than $35,000.
Payment of prevailing wages is required on all projects regardless of cost. Prevailing wage forms for the prime contractor and all sub-contractors must be received by the agency before invoice payments can be made.
