• The Board of Education for the Special Services School District in the County of Bergen (Board) is soliciting Qualification Statements from interested persons and/or firms for the provision of listed services. Inclusion of a position in this notice, however, does not constitute a warranty that the Board will fill the position at this time or through this process. Through a Request for Qualification process, persons and/or firms interested in assisting the Board with the provision of such services must prepare and submit a Qualification Statement in accordance with the procedure and schedule in the RFQs. The Board will review Qualification Statements only from those firms that submit a Qualification Statement which includes all the information required to be included as described (in the sole judgment of the Board). The Board intends to select (a) person(s) and/or firm(s) that (a) possess(es) the professional, financial and administrative capabilities to provide the proposed services, and (b) agrees and meets the terms and conditions determined by the Board that provide the greatest benefit to the taxpayers of County of Bergen.

    The selection of Qualified Respondents is not subject to the provisions of the Public School Contracts Law, N.J.S.A. 18A:18A-1 et seq. The selection is, however, subject to the “New Jersey Pay-to-Play” Law, N.J.S.A. P.L. 2005c.27 NJSA 40A:11-51 et seq. The Board has structured a procurement process that seeks to obtain the desired results, while establishing a competitive process, to assure that each person and/or firm is provided an equal opportunity to submit a Qualification Statement in response to the RFQ.

    Qualification Statements must be submitted to, and received by the Board, or designee, of the Bergen County Special Services School District, 540 Farview Avenue, Room 2300, Paramus, NJ 07652, no later than 10:00 a.m. (prevailing time) on the due date listed below, and must be sent via overnight delivery only. Because of building closures and public access restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 public health crisis and state of emergency, Qualification Statements forwarded by facsimile, e-mail, regular mail, certified mail, or hand delivery will not be accepted. Qualification statements received after this time will not be considered. The Board will not bear responsibility for delays in delivery for any reason.
