1. Section I. C. Scope of Services
Question: It does not specify the frequencies for the various functions listed. Are the bidders to
suggest their own frequency per function/area?
Clarification: Section 5.e. Cost should be the annual lump sum cost for weekly maintenance (52
weeks) of all services for each line item, except for those specified in the RFB including the per
hour cost for tree trimming and cutting, unit cost for water and pine straw and three (3) areas of
landscape installation. This will allow the selection panel to have a clear comparison of costs. We
also request that you provide any suggestions for modification of frequency and cost savings
recommendations.
Once a firm is selected, the CIDs will begin contract and negotiations which may decrease
frequency in some areas; however, those areas will not be determined until after the contract is
awarded.

2. Section III. Criteria for Evaluation of RFBs
Question: Do teams have to provide bonds with the Bid?
Clarification: No, teams do not have to provide bonds for the Bid. We do request that you provide
your bonding company contact information so we can verify that you have the ability to obtain
bonds.

areas. Teams are not expected to work within wooded areas, only up to tree lines.
