Contact Person: Sara Cain, Associate Senior Planner, scain@bcag.org 
 
Questions Received:
1. Is the purpose of the marketing study to guide BCAG in marketing the transit services that it operates after this plan is complete? Correct, the purpose of the marketing plan is to guide BCAG in marketing the proposed recommendations once the plan is complete. Task 2 Public Outreach will consist of educating the public as the plan is being developed.
 
2. Not knowing your funding source for this project, and hoping that this project can involve travel (once the pandemic subsides), we would like to know if contractors will need to stay under Caltrans’s limits on travel-related expenditures. This project is funded through the Federal Transit Administration Section 5307 and would need to comply with any FTA travel limits. That being said, it’s likely in-person outreach won’t be possible for quite some time.
 
3. In consideration of work site restrictions associated with the COVID-19 outbreak and challenges associated with printing and mailing as well as the biological risk of handling materials and transmitting them from person to person, we are wondering if BCAG will consider submittal of electronic copies only at this time. Submitting the proposal via email is OK.
 
4. Regarding the short-, medium-, and long-range network recommendations, do you have a specific time-frame for those ranges—for example, 5, 10, and 20 years? The study would identify the time-range of proposed network alternatives.
 
5. Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how much of the outreach and engagement do you think will take place virtually vs. in-person? Currently, all public outreach events are being performed virtually. Assuming the COVID-19 restrictions allow for in-person activities, the consultant should budget time to facilitate in-person. 
 
6. Given the 15-month engagement period, what do you currently envision as the frequency of public meetings, pop-up events, BCAG Committee meetings and BCAG Board meetings? The public outreach timeline should be developed by the consultant based on major deliverables. 
7. Page 5 states: Office Location of Prime Consultant: The consultant must state where office work is to be accomplished. Should all offices be listed or the primary office? Primary office.
 
8. Will there be a preproposal conference? No.
