Moving Services Associated with the Modernization of Multiple Sites

The Cambridge Housing Authority invites sealed proposals for Moving Services associated with the Modernization of Various Sites in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in accordance with documents prepared by the Cambridge Housing Authority and in accordance with MGL Chapter 30B. Award of contract will be made to up to four (4) responsible and responsive vendor(s) who offer the best price based on
the unit prices identified in their bid. Following the receipt of bids, as allowed under provision of MGL Chapter 30 B, CHA will negotiate with the responsive and responsible bidders offering the lowest price, on final prices, and make a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners to award contract(s). CHA expects that there will be a total of approximately 600-700 moves over a three-year period. The maximum upset value of any resultant lump-sum contract will be $750,000 per contract. Residents required to be relocated may be moved to: 1) other dwelling units within the same housing development, 2) another Housing Authority development, 3) a scattered site home that is located within the Cambridge city limits or surrounding communities, or 4) a non-housing authority (privately owned) property located within the city limits or surrounding communities. The successful contractor will be required to provide the following services: Moving of resident(s) furniture and personal belongings.

Bidders should also include unit prices for offsite storage, packing services (as described in project documents) and packing materials. Although pricing for these services will not be used in the
calculation to determine Low bidder(s) (with the exception of the Four (4) hour base rate for packing services to be provided to Elderly/Disabled households), each item will be considered as part of the selection process to determining a firm’s overall qualifications.

This ITB contains submission requirements, scope of services, period of services, terms and conditions and other pertinent information for submitting a proper and responsive proposal.
