The intent of this Request for Quote (RFQ) is to allow the South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) to facilitate the bulk purchase of various exterior LED fixtures on behalf of the following cities: Carson, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and Torrance. Other South Bay cities may be interested in participating in the bulk purchase; however the need has not yet been identified. Quotes should state how long the pricing is good for. Participating cities will enter into individual agreements with the selected providers. The bulk purchase of LED fixtures should provide SBCCOG member cities with volume pricing discounts. Cities will negotiate separately in any manner necessary to serve their best interests. See complete RFQ attached at the bottom of the page.
