DISCUSSION
City Council approval is requested to enter into contracts with five professional land surveying firms for the delivery of preliminary design surveys, construction staking, control surveys, global positioning surveys (GPS), levels, and subdivision map-checking services, on an as-needed basis for various City of Long Beach (City) Departments, including Public Works, Development Services, Long Beach Airport, Long Beach Energy Resources, and Parks, Recreation and Marine. The City has historically used outside professional firms on an as-needed basis to provide these services. As existing as-needed contracts related to these specialized professional services will expire shortly, a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process was conducted to secure as-needed surveying services.

The Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was advertised in the Long Beach Press-Telegram on March 1, 2022, and 181 potential proposers specializing in surveying services were notified of the RFQ opportunity. Of those proposers, 16 downloaded the RFQ via the City’s former electronic bid system (PlanetBids, now Long Beach Buys). The RFQ document was made available from the Purchasing Division, located on the sixth floor of City Hall, and the Division’s website at www.longbeach.gov/purchasing
