RFP: $175 million renovation/revitalization of Dana Point Harbor, California

Almost 20 years has passed since at least one person decided updates to Dana Point Harbor’s docks and surrounding area are worth pursuing.

County officials and policymakers are hopeful work on the harbor revitalization will begin at some point this year. When work will begin is still up in the air as a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process continues to draw itself out.

Orange County hopes to hire a private vendor to complete a $175 million renovation and revitalization of Dana Point Harbor.

Jean Pasco, a spokesperson for the county’s executive office, said RFQ responses are due June 20, 2016. At press time county officials were uncertain of how many companies would submit the Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) by the deadline.

The SOQ will be evaluated to determine if they have complied with and adhere to all of the RFQ requirements. Once responses are determined to be compliant, an evaluation panel will consider and score the SOQs. The county will conduct interviews with respondents as needed,” Pasco said of the review process. “Scores from the written SOQ and interviews will be combined and used to create a short list of proposers who will be invited to respond to a RFP.

Even after the deadline passes and all responses have been submitted the timeline for when the county selects a vendor to oversee the harbor revitalization would still be up in the air.

Note from Storm: Despite the June 20 deadline having passed (sorry: I cam across this late), anyone interested in bidding on this project should probably contact Orange County officials. It sounds like there’s a good chance that they will still be open to ideas, given the two-decade history of this effort.
