The City of Tupelo Mississippi, (hereinafter “City” or “Tupelo”) is seeking proposals from well-qualified Firms for Disaster Debris Removal Assistance to establish a twelve (12) month pre-contract. The City of Tupelo Debris Management Team will open the bids for review by the Tupelo City Council and will score the Respondent for consideration. Should the City Council determine that the City Personnel/Equipment and Mutual Aid Agreements are not sufficient to perform the duties required for Debris Removal a task order will be issued. Although pricing is required for the initial RFP response each activation will require current pricing per event. The City reserves the right to reject any and all responses, and to waive any and all irregularities in bidding.

Pricing is sought for the removal of disaster related debris, of every kind and nature from public rights of way (and/or private property if approved by FEMA and MEMA, as further described in the RFP). Private Right of Way Access or Right of Entry (ROE) may or may not be part of any project however if the City, State, MEMA, or FEMA authorizes ROE it will become part of future projects. Respondent should be aware that the City may elect to utilize multiple companies for debris removal should the event size require such action.

The City will receive proposals from firms having specific experience and qualifications in the areas identified in this request. For consideration, information must contain evidence of experience and abilities in the specified area and other disciplines directly related to Debris Removal
