Questions and Answers to Project Documents — Business Opportunities
PROJECT:  Parking Revenue Control System Replacement
NUMBER:  201733794-00

Current as of:  9/21/2017
 
Question Number  1:   Confirm that DIA will provide and configure any required network switch at each lane in order to support the new PRCS VLANs.
    Answer:   Confirmed. Respondents should indicate the number of required Ethernet ports for each lane type as part of their proposal.
Question Number  2:   It was stated during the PreBid that DIA will relocate some AVI readers from public lanes to employee lanes which currently don’t have an AVI reader. Are there any lanes that will end up not having an AVI reader after the 100 new AVI readers requested in the RFP are installed and DIA relocations? If yes, please identify which lanes will not be getting an AVI reader.
    Answer:   Refer to the Equipment Matrix for details of equipment that will be installed in each lane. Provide pricing for new components based on the quantities in the Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  3:   It was stated during the PreBid meeting that an interface between the PRCS/Valet system and the Hotel folio system is not required since eventually it will be possible to reach the hotel without having to pull an entry ticket. However, the specifications states under Hotel Module and throughout the hotel valet operational description that PRCS vendor is to “provide the ability for hotel valet guests to charge parking to their folio”. Please clarify if an interface between the PRCS/Valet system and the Hotel property management system is required or not.
    Answer:   An interface between the hotel property management system (PMS) and the PRCS is not required. If a hotel guest wishes to assign their valet fee to their hotel folio, then the hotel desk agent will add a valet parking fee to the guest folio as a room charge in the PMS. The desk agent would then use the PRCS cashier terminal inside of the hotel to validate the guests valet ticket that they received at drop-off.
Question Number  4:   If an interface between the PRCS/Valet system and the hotel property management system is required, please provide a general description of how DIA envisions this will work as well as details on the hotel system and its integration capabilities
    Answer:   An interface between the hotel property management system and the PRCS is not required.
Question Number  5:   The lane equipment quantities in the pricing form matches the lane functionalities identified in the equipment matrix. However, there are cases where some of the functionalities can be combined into the entry or exit lane equipment. For example, a 2D barcode reader could be part of an entry or exit station, or an entry/exit unit at an employee lane. For such cases, the price form does not allow a way to properly price this functionalities. Please provide a method on the price proposal form so that a portion or all of specific functionalities can be combined with other lane equipment.
    Answer:   It is understood that multiple components can be combined in entry and exit lane equipment. DEN desires to see the base component price (example: entry station) as well as individual line items for each additional component (example: 2D barcode reader, intercom, etc.). Respondents should separate the total price of the combined equipment over the individual line items provided in the Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  6:   Contracting/Procurement Guidelines & Provisions: Bond requirements are addressed only in Maintenance & Support Services Contract (Performance) and in Services tab of Price Proposal Form.  No bond requirements for PRCS System Replacement project itself appear in the RFP.  Does PRCS System Replacement project require bonding?  If so, what types (Bid, Performance, Payment, etc.) and where should bond costs be reflected in Price Proposal Form?
    Answer:   The PRCS project does not require a bid bond. The successful Proposer will be required to submit a Performance and Payment Bond in the amount of One Million Dollars. Please include bonding cost under the appropriate line item in the "Services" tab of the Attachment 2, Part 7 PRCS Price Proposal spreadsheet.
Question Number  7:   PreBid Hand Out - City & County of Denver, Colorado Page 2, Item 4: This guidance indicates that if installed equipment  can be removed without damaging the structure and or altering its functional use, it is not regarded as work performed by a contractor.  That suggests that installation labor, if called out and separately itemized, would not be taxable.  Please provide definitive guidance on this interpretation.
    Answer:   What this means is that completed units of tangible personal property - the types of which are listed in the examples given in the hand out - are considered to be retail purchases and are subject to tax with the only portion that may be exempt being separately stated installation labor. For example, if a contractor were to sub out the acquisition and installation of refrigerators in a building they were constructing or remodeling, this would be considered a retail purchase whereby sales tax would be due on the entire purchase except for any separately stated labor to install the item. If the item is installed but that service is included in the price (not separately stated), the full amount would be subject to tax. The exemption from tax only applies to the separately stated installation labor. Delivery is taxable and if combined with installation labor, the full amount is taxable. Any other labor charges, such as those for manufacturing, compounding, etc. are generally taxable. Additionally, when discussing this issue, the Rule applies to the items which can be removed without substantial damage to the structure. This is interpreted in a pretty narrow way. For example, removing a built-in, hardwired refrigeration unit might require that a concrete floor be removed along with the unit or that it is removed in pieces. This would make a terrible mess but would not alter the functional use of the structure. However, removal of the entire roof from a building would likely alter the function as it would not be usable for any purpose. For further clarification, please contact Cindy Bills in the City & County of Denver Auditor's Office at 720-913-9363
Question Number  8:   Exhibit 1: Equipment Matrix: Should transient entries include 2D scanners? (If so, there are 97 total 2D scanners required)?
    Answer:   Yes, all public entry lanes should include 2D barcode readers. See revised Equipment Matrix and Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  9:   Exhibit 1: Equipment Matrix - New ID 27: Should West Garage Mod 4 Public Exit - north road past hotel valet drop-off, include a 2D scanner? (It is included in 97 count above)?
    Answer:   Yes. See revised Equipment Matrix and Price Proposal Form (Addendum One).
Question Number  10:   Exhibit 1: Equipment Matrix - New ID 48: Should West Garage Exit Plaza include a 2nd EMV Reader and a 2nd 2D Scanner? (It is included in 97 count above)?
    Answer:   Yes. See revised Equipment Matrix and Price Proposal Form (Addendum One).
Question Number  11:   Exhibit 1: Equipment Matrix: West Garage Entry Plaza - Dedicated Hotel, Lane 79 has AVI and UPS but has no other equipment, is this correct?
    Answer:   Yes. This is a freeflow lane with no other equipment.
Question Number  12:   Exhibit 1: Equipment Matrix: During walk-through it was mentioned that the remote clickers would not be used for valet in West & East Garage free exits, but no equipment is specified to replace this functionality. Should valet exit equipment be added to proposed configurations for Valet West and East Garage Free Exits?
    Answer:   The equipment matrix is correct. These exits will be loop controlled. The intercom is provided for the customers to call for assistance in the event that the gate doesn't open.
Question Number  13:   Attachment 2 Part 7 Pricing: Equipment Totals on Parking Facility Equipment Price Sheet include test equipment but test equipment has it's own Price Sheet. Should price proposal form reflect duplication of test equipment (quantities and pricing) in both places?
    Answer:   No, the duplication was incorrect. See revised Price Proposal Form (Addendum One).
Question Number  14:   Attachment 2 Part 7 Pricing: Employee & Bus Entry/Exit Devices aren't listed on the Parking Facility Equipment, Test Equipment and Spares list. How/where should quantities and pricing for these specified items be incorporated?
    Answer:   Employee & Bus Entry/Exit Devices are included in the quantities shown on the "Parking Facility Equipment" tab of the Price Proposal Form. Test Equipment lines have been removed from the Price Proposal Form as indicated in the response to Question 13. Respondents may add additional recommended spare parts to the "Spare Parts" tab of the Price Proposal Form in the yellow cells. See revised Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  15:   Functional Specifications: 2.4 O & Integration Matrix: Is there a loyalty program currently in use with which PRCS must interface? Which one? Does specification require interfaces to loyalty programs in the future other than the one provided by proposer for this project?
    Answer:   There is not an existing program. The PRCS Contractor will provide the loyalty program as part of this contract. The specification does not require additional interfaces to loyalty programs in the future other than the one provided by the PRCS Contractor for this project.
Question Number  16:   (p. 138) Backup and Archiving: Contractor is responsible for backup and archiving. Perform backups and offsite storage location. If local virtualized environment is chosen and the environment is monitored by DIA, is the contractor still responsible to perform backups or only to provide a system that is capable of doing so?
    Answer:   If the local virtualized solution is chosen, backups, archiving, and server monitoring will be performed by the Contractor.
Question Number  17:   (p. 140) Permit Office Point-of-Sale (POS) units. Should the existing security batch be used to sign into a POS instead of a username and password to identify the employee? Are there specifications available to authorize against the existing security batch system? Alternatively, can the reader be provided? Please explain the desired use-case more in depth.
    Answer:   Permit office attendants will sign into the POS with a user name and password that is associated with the PRCS active directory. When employees come to the permit office for account management and/or payment they will present their badge on a reader that is associated with the POS to verify that they have an active badge. The current badging system is Cyber Country version 6.1.1.2. Employee badges are proximity. DEN will soon procure a new security badge system, but that system is not yet identified. Badge reader shall be provided by the Contractor. Per spec section 2.4.M.2.d. the Contractor shall provide a POS with both proximity card reader and a magnetic stripe reader to read the employee security badge to confirm active employment.
Question Number  18:   (p. 150) Link from E470 Tolling Authority website to DEN's registered parker website on the toll website, toll tag holders check box to enroll at DEN and this takes them to DEN's registered parker program website to complete enrollment in DEN's program. Who is responsible for the redirect from the Toll website to the registered parker website? Which information should be exchanged here?
    Answer:   DEN Technologies will work with E-470 and the successful proposer to facilitate the re-direct. Basic information exchanged would include: Toll Tag Identification.
Question Number  19:   (p. 150) Employee badge security system interface Badge number and date of termination to automatically deactivate the parking access credentials. For non-badged employees, provide a means through the website for employers and employees to terminate a permit. Please clarify if the security badges are meant as an access credential to enter and exit the garage? Or should there be a different access credential for employees. Is it possible to receive test cards? Is there any existing interface or import / export mechanism where information can be provided?
    Answer:   Parking permits for employees will be AVI transponders issued by the permit office. The security badge is only used to confirm active employment. There is no existing interface to import/export information. The Contractor is responsible to export the data from the current sytem to the new system."
Question Number  20:   (Exhibit 1 - Equipment Matrix) According to the matrix, lane devices of a single kind have different configurations. Example: Entry stations are mostly equipped with LPR and AVI (e.g. ID #12). While other entry stations only have LPR (e.g. ID #59). Is it the intention to have lanes that do not support the full portfolio of functionality or should it be homogenous? Same applies e.g. nest entry lanes and nest exit lanes. Some have LPR (ID #68) and some do not (ID #68). Some next exit lanes have EMV terminals and some do not. Is the assignment correct? Is it permitted to add LPR/EMV/AVI functionality to a lane if it improves the customer use case?
    Answer:   Proposals should be based on the quantities in the revised Equipment Matrix. In the event that certain components are added to various lanes at a later date, the additions will be handled via change order.
Question Number  21:   Functional Specifications 2.1.E.1: Please confirm exact models of gates & controllers to which PRCS must interface. Information in pre-bid [proposal] indicated, once legacy gates are replaced, two different Magnetic Automation gate/controller combinations will be in service to be supported by a new PRCS system.
    Answer:   There are 2 different Magnetic gates they are: Parking Pro RC01040 Toll RCS1241
Question Number  22:   Functional Specifications 2.5.C.13 Integration Matrix: Please identify the hotel property management system (folio) with which the valet system must integrate.
    Answer:   Please refer to the response to question #3.
Question Number  23:   DEN's Change Management Process, Standards & Guidelines appear largely oriented to management of a production enterprise IT operation.  Please explain their relevance & applicability to the Parking Revenue Control System, during and after installation.
    Answer:   Yes, the change process is oriented to the enterprise IT operation. Once the first set of lanes are "live and in production," formal IT change process needs to be followed for changes that impact systems already live (during installation). After installation, all changes impacting enterprise IT operations will require change control.
Question Number  24:   Are AVI readers & antennas subject to frequency restrictions or other FAA-imposed requirements not included in the specification?  Will a frequency analysis need to be performed or other unspecified FAA or FCC requirements (e.g. certifications or licensing) satisfied?
    Answer:   The AVI sites at DEN are all covered under a FCC radius license. If the same 900 MHz ISM frequency spectrum is used, no further FCC license or frequency studies should be required.
Question Number  25:   Can you define the requirements needed for the variable message sign?
    Answer:   Full color, dynamic message, LED. The intent is to display the current lane functionality, examples; OPEN, CLOSED, RESERVED ONLY, CASH ONLY, CREDIT CARD ONLY, etc.
Question Number  26:   What prevailing wages rates should be used? Is landside parking technician applicable to the installation process? Will highway rates be required at any point in the project?
    Answer:   Probably both sets of prevailing wages should be used. Landside parking technician is applicable to the installation process. The requirement of highway rates depends on if work has to be done on the booths that are not covered by the parking technician. In this instance, highway wages will need to be used.
Question Number  27:   Are there any specific requirements for how gates are to be painted? Is this an add-alternate? How should this be priced on the price proposal form?
    Answer:   This work will be performed by DEN. It should not be included in the response to this RFP.
Question Number  28:   What are the on-site labor requirements for the dedicated support staff. The requirements are 06:00 to 23:59 three hundred sixty-five (365) days per year, but how many staff members are simultaneously required on site? Just a single person?
    Answer:   Contractor should come up with their own staffing plan to meet the SLA's with a minimum of one staff one on-site during these hours.
Question Number  29:   Is it a requirement of the system that the ticket is ingested and vaulted at the Exit Station? If exceptions are accepted, should proposers provide prices for add-alternate to add or remove this feature for consistent pricing?
    Answer:   If the equipment is not designed to ingest and vault the exit tickets, state such as an exception, and the responses will be evaluated accordingly. DEN is seeking the best off the shelf system, not a customized solution.
Question Number  30:   If a bidder’s [proposer's] current insurance is less than the amount required, but is possible to be provided if awarded the project, will a letter from bidder’s insurance company suffice as proof of insurance?
    Answer:   Yes, we do not expect you to spend the money for additional insurance until after the contract is awarded.
Question Number  31:   As some systems are more modular in design (not all features are included in the base system pricing) – where on the bid form should additional/applicable fees be listed for API / Integration Fees, EMV Services, Reports (if all system reports are not included with the standard product), Export Utilities, Other system non-included functionality?
    Answer:   Include any additional prices on the "Additive Alternate Items" tab of the Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  32:   RFP Ltr - General Provisions: Features & Demonstration List contains requirements not addressed in Functional Specifications, e.g. "Transaction Instructional voice Prompting." Which document prevails as definition for PRCS deliverable requirements?
    Answer:   The intent of the specification was to be more generalistic while going into detail on some "must haves." DEN is seeking the best off-the-shelf system that meets their needs and also see how flexible the system is during demonstrations. If a Contractor's system does not posses certain items from the Features & Demonstration List, just say so and the demonstartion will be evaluated accordingly. If these unspecified features add cost, include the cost on the "Additive Alternate Items" tab of the Price Proposal Form.
Question Number  33:   Functional Specifications: Variable Messaging Signs (VMS) for entries/exits are listed in Price Proposal Form & Equipment Matrix and integration requirements included in Interfaces/Exports matrix but sign specifications are not provided.
