*Amendment #1 posted on BC Bid

Proposals will be received in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with the name and address of the proponent and the name of the Project: “Request for Proposal: Consultant for District of Sparwood Official Community Plan 2013 Update” and be addressed to Nelson Wight, no later than 3:00 pm (MST), March 26nd, 2013 (the “Closing Deadline”), at the following address:

District of Sparwood - Municipal Office
Box 520
136 Spruce Avenue
Sparwood, BC V0B 2G0

The District’s current OCP Bylaw No. 869c was completed in 2002. The desire for a new OCP is a result of the inadequacy of the current OCP, the need to develop a future land use strategy that corresponds to anticipated growth in various sectors, as well as an interest in improving the livability of the community.

Although the District fully intends at this time to proceed through the RFP, the District is under no obligation to award a contract or to proceed to any other stage and reserves the right to terminate the Request for Proposal process at any time, and to withdraw from discussions with all or any of the Proponents who have responded. As it is the purpose of the District to obtain a Proposal most suitable to the interests of the District and what it wishes to accomplish, the District has the right to waive any irregularity or insufficiency in a Proposal submitted and to accept the Proposal which is deemed most favorable to the interest of the District.

Documents and amendments, if required, are listed on BC Bid
