A pre-bid meeting will be held at 11 a.m. on January 27, 2017, at the Marine Facilities Maintenance building, 10801 N. Lombard Street, Portland, Oregon, to discuss all phases of the work. A site tour will immediately follow the meeting. This tour requires an RSVP at least two business days prior to the date of the tour. Bidders must indicate their attendance through the Port’s online bidding system by selecting the Vendor name under the Prospective Bidders tab, and then the RSVP tab from the Prospective Bidders Detail screen.

Small Business Participation Program: The Port is committed to increasing small business participation in Port contracts. For fiscal year 2016-2017, the Port’s overall small business participation target is 16 percent participation of small businesses as a percent of contract dollars awarded directly and as subcontracts; and 30 percent participation of small businesses as a percent of the total number of contracts awarded directly and as subcontracts. While there is no specific small business participation goal for this project, the Port encourages all bidders to consider how they can help the Port achieve its overall small business participation target.
