Request for Proposals

Archaeological Overview Assessment - Electoral Area 'H'

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to prepare an Archaeological Overview Assessment (AOA) of Electoral Area 'H'. The Proponent will be responsible to:
  • Prepare a GIS supported AOA in accordance with the "Archaeological Overview Assessments as General Land Use Planning Tools - Provincial Standards and Guidelines", 2009.
  • Prepare a separate report or pamphlet that that can be made publicly available.
The RDN is undertaking this project as part of an Official Community Plan (OCP) Review for Electoral Area 'H' and would like to include information in the revised OCP about archaeological potential. As well, the AOA will be integrated into the planning and development approval process to enable development proponents to be notified of overlaps between proposed development and archaeologically sensitive areas.

The AOA will provide valuable information for local and provincial government use in planning public works projects. It is expected that the successful proponent will provide an information session to RDN and Improvement District staff on how to use the AOA.

Proponents must refer to the complete Request for Proposals Documents for detailed information regarding proposal submission requirements. The AOA is to be completed by February 3, 2017, and the training session is to be completed prior to March 31, 2017.

Proposals will be accepted until 4:00 pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday, November 28, 2016
