Public comment and an EIS isn’t required.

A: Current work.


Q: RFP page 5 States in Proposal Response Requirements that “Design Services Agreement Terms & Conditions” have to be included... Is that F&R’s standard T&Cs? There is no further reference to this in the rest of the RFP, so we are unaware of any other terms and conditions that should be included.

A: T&C’s for your company.
