Questions & Answers
Dijona - after partially completing the MS Word document with the bid forms and saving it yesterday, it now appears we are "locked out" from making further changes/additions. Are we able to get the password to allow us to complete our entry??
Thank You

1. Will this project require on-site physical presence or is it all remote work?
2. Among the Insurance Requirements specified in the Sample Contract is E&O coverage per occurrence and in the aggregate specified as “3.” Please clarify.
3. Is the scope of the roadmap sought focused on AMI and Grid modernization that use AMI as the core technology?  Grid mod efforts that do not involve AMI are out of scope.

Hi,

Please see SMUD's responses below:

1. This project will require remote work only.
2. My apologies, but I do not see that in my version. The coverage per occurrence and in the aggregate should be $2M.
3. Yes, the scope of the roadmap will be focused on AMI and any equipment/technologies/systems/programs that use AMI as a foundational/enabling technology (including Grid Modernization). If the equipment/technologies/systems/programs do not utilize AMI as a foundation/enabling technology, they would be out of scope. Please review the detailed Project Deliverables in the Scope of Work section beginning on p. 2-3 of the RFP. This section includes details for what is expected for each Project Deliverable, including the “Finalize Scope for Roadmap” Deliverable.

Hi Dejona,  Considering that many people have been accumulating a lot of unused 2021 PTO  as COVID has postponed many planned vacations, I am aware that a large number of my colleagues as well as customers are going to take off most of the week of Thanksgiving to use up as much remaining holiday time as possible.  With that in mind, would SMUD consider extending the due date for the RFP to December 9th or 16th?  I'm sure it will endure that SMUD receives the highest quality proposal responses for this critical initiative.
Respectfully,
Pat Francois
