MAPC is administering this procurement on behalf of the Consortium and the Participating Member Municipalities. MAPC will identify responsible and responsive low bidders and make recommendations of award. Individual contracts will be executed between the Participating Member Municipalities and the low bidders. The Participating Member Municipalities reserve the right to accept or reject such recommendations and to award contracts with the low bidders as deemed in their best interest. MAPC and the Consortium reserve the right to accept or reject any and all bids or portions thereof, to waive any informalities in bidding, and to recommend awards as appear in the best interest of the Consortium and its members.

Bid documents may be obtained by contacting Marjorie Weinberger by email at, beginning August 14, 2019 through September 3, 2019. Massachusetts Prevailing Wage Laws apply to all services.

Vendors are advised that the initial contract term is for one year.  Awarding Authority reserves the right to extend the contract for two additional 12 month options.  Valuation for purposes of MassDOT Prequalification is based on first year times three (3) to arrive at an estimated total Prequal.
