Requests for Quotation

RFP: AWD Passenger Van

Closes: Jul 10, 2019
CRITFC operates and maintains 31 tribal fishing access sites located along the 150-mile stretch of the Columbia River (Zone 6). These sites are for the exclusive use of Indian fishers from the four CRITFC member tribes. The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fisheries Enforcement (CRITFE) department, located in Hood River, Oregon, consists of patrol officers, dispatchers, and other administrative personnel who provide 24-hour protection of those sites. In addition to protecting tribal treaty fishing access sites, the CRITFE also provides assistance for other public safety concerns as well as archaeological site protection. Currently, the Enforcement department is in need of an AWD passenger van to add to their existing fleet.

Replacement of phone systems and related services

Closes: Jun 28, 2019
The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) invites you to submit a competitive proposal for the replacement of phone systems and related services at CRITFC’s Hood River (HRO) and Portland, OR (PDX) offices. This project is driven by an increasing risk of failure of locally installed Mitel 5000 PBX equipment at both offices (~10 years old), as well as individual Inter-Tel desktop digital phones (~15-20 years old) in use on those PBX’s by the approximately 100 CRITFC staff working at those locations. CRITFC’s primary goal is to maintain a high quality and dependable voice service at these two offices, and only secondarily to take advantage of newer technologies made available through the project for CRITFC staff.

CRITFC prefers that the contractor selected will manage all aspects of the project as described below, including any subcontracts. However, CRITFC and the contractor may agree to break the project into components if the overall goals are met, including having CRITFC contract separately with trusted partners of the contractor for elements such as network configuration or voice services. In this case the proposal should outline how those components will be dealt with, any separate partner response will be subject to the same deadline as the proposal, and the overall project will still be evaluated as if all components were the responsibility of the contractor.
