SOQ Packages MUST be submitted in a SEALED envelope/container and clearly marked on the exterior of the package: “STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS FOR PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING SERVICES RELATED TO STATE HIGHWAY 609 FROM US HIGHWAY

When submitting electronically, the SOQ Package must be submitted as a single “PDF” file with the first page bearing the name of the respondent, his mailing address, and the name of the RFQ for which the SOQ Package is submitted. When SOQ Packages are submitted electronically, respondents must ensure that their electronic submission can be accessed and viewed by the County immediately upon opening. The County will consider any file that cannot be immediately accessed and viewed at the time of the opening (such as, encrypted files, password protected files, or incompatible files) to be blank or incomplete as context requires and are therefore unacceptable. A respondent will not be permitted to unencrypt files, remove password protections, or resubmit documents after opening to make a file viewable if those documents are required with the SOQ Package. Electronic SOQ Packages must be secured with a blue ink signature or an electronic signature. For an electronic copy of the RFQ, documents can be viewed or downloaded from www.jacksoncoplans.com.
