Bid Number: RFI No. 01-2018
Bid Title: Recreational Trail-Building & Conservation Properties
Category: Request for Information
Status: Closed

Background McKinley has received notification of the award of funds through the New Mexico Department of Transportation for the construction of multi-use trails in the Zuni Mountains over a period of 2-3 years. McKinley County wrote and submitted the grant, intending to work with the City of Gallup Youth Conservation Corps, using the youth wages from that program’s grant to meet a required 14.56% match. However, the City of Gallup Youth Conservation Corps was not funded through the State of New Mexico for the 2018 summer season. In addition, it has become apparent that one Youth Conservation Corps program alone may not be able to provide sufficient hours and match to support the level of work needed within the time period. Purpose McKinley County is seeking information from non-profit or government entities that have established Conservation and/or Trail Building in the McKinley and Cibola County area and are organized with an interest in working in partnership with local government (McKinley County primarily), and can perform work related to trail construction to an established standard. This Request for Information and the responses provided may be used as a precursor to a procurement process and/or negotiations. In particular, McKinley County is requesting information about how an organization might be able to work as a partner with the following considerations: • Have an already established conservation/trail building programs serving within McKinley and/or Cibola Counties (i.e. familiar with the Zuni Mountains). • Have an educational, work-force development, and/or skills-training programming integral to program mission, goals and operation. • Commitment for payment of program participants an hourly wage of at least $10.00 an hour. • Commitment of minimum 15% match (preference that at least 5% be non-federal) and ability to document match per grant requirements. • Ability to provide program flexibility to respond to environmental conditions and for a potential late start (July or early August) for the 2018 season. • Experience and expertise in trail building, including but not limited to expertise in reading/following plans and specs, problem solving in the field, supervision/training for unskilled workers, knowledge and expertise in constructing water diversion and/or soil erosion control features. • Experience working with local governments and tribal government entities, preferably in McKinley and Cibola Counties with an awareness that other entities and individuals have an interest in the Zuni Mountains. • Experience working with federal programs, preferably local, including, but not limited to the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Parks Service, and Bureau of Indian Affairs. • Commitment for members/participants/employees from the Four Corners Region, with emphasis upon McKinley and Cibola Counties and Native American populations.
