DETERMINATION
The City will use all submitted answers, documents, and interviews as the
basis of rating contractors for prequalification on this Project. The City reserves the right to check
other sources. The City also reserves the right to adjust, increase, limit, suspend or rescind the
prequalification rating based on subsequently learned information. The City’s decision will be
based on objective evaluation criteria. The City may refuse to grant prequalification where the
requested information and materials are not provided, not provided by the deadline, or falsified.
The City reserves the right to waive minor irregularities and omissions contained in any
Prequalification Packet submitted and to make all final determinations.

STANDARDS OF RESPONSIBILITY
In prequalifying, the City is seeking contractors who: are experienced, knowledgeable and capable; have a high quality of work, strong safety record, and sufficient equipment, resources, and personnel; do not have a pattern of unsupported claims or excessive, unjustified change orders; have not been found non-responsible; have not been debarred, civilly convicted or found criminally guilty for making false claims to any public agency;
and do not make deceptive, evasive or fraudulent statements or omissions in their Prequalification
Packets and in the prequalification process.

APPEALS
There is no appeal from the City’s refusal to prequalify for an incomplete, late or
falsified application. Where a timely, complete, honest and accurate Prequalification Packet
results in a rating below that which is necessary to prequalify, the contractor can deliver its written
appeal request to the prequalification decision on or before 5:00 p.m. on the fifth business day
after the date that the Notice of Prequalification was mailed. That appeal must follow all
requirements listed in the City’s Notice of Appeal, which the City shall send with its Notice of
Prequalification. Without a timely appeal, the contractor waives all rights to challenge the City’s
decision by administrative, judicial or any other legal process or proceeding. If this type of appeal
is filed, bids will remain sealed until final City action is taken on that appeal.

POST-BID CONSIDERATIONS
Neither the fact of prequalification nor any prequalification rating will preclude the City from a post-bid consideration and determination of whether a contractor has the quality, fitness, capacity, and experience to satisfactorily perform the proposed work and has demonstrated the requisite trustworthiness.

BID PACKETS
Bid packets, Project plans, and specifications will be available at a later time.

QUESTIONS
For questions regarding the prequalification process, please mail, email or
personally deliver written questions to Renee Hatcher by 5:00 p.m. on June 4, 2020, referencing
“Prequalification Packet for the New Scale House Replacement of Truck Weigh Scales Project
PW 20-59.” Ms. Hatcher can be reached at renee.hatcher@oxnard.org or at the address listed
above for Oxnard City Hall. Questions received after this deadline will be disregarded. Any
response will be made only in writing to all contractors who have obtained a prequalification
questionnaire directly from CyberCopy or Renee Hatcher at that time. No oral response shall be
binding.

SUBCONTRACTORS
The City may require one or more of the following: the qualification of
subcontractors in particular crafts or trades following acceptance of contractor’s bid but before
the award is made; the prequalification of all subcontractors; the prequalification of subcontractorsin certain crafts; or a post-bid qualification review.
