RFP - Elevator Inspection Services

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) is to solicit competitive proposals from qualified firms to provide elevator inspection services, on an either annual or twice-annual basis, to the City of Highland Park, Illinois (“City”). Along with inspection services, as detailed in section 3 of this RFP, the City may also require, at various times and as additional professional services, elevator plan review, inspections of existing elevator repairs and alterations, elevator operation, and/or witness testing.

The City’s intent is to maintain a high-level of customer service by performing elevator inspections and ensuring their safe operation.  The City has been contracting these services since 2015 via a joint procurement with Lake County, Illinois – however, the City would like to individually procure these services at this time.  The City estimates that consulting services will be needed for approximately 450 elevator inspections per semi-annual cycle, or 900 inspections per year total.

The selected proposer will be invited to enter into an agreement for a term that would begin January 2022, and continuing until December 31, 2022, with optional one-year renewals for the years 2023, 2024, and 2025. The City Council has the ultimate authority to approve any proposal and to authorize the execution of an agreement.
