Issued: March 21, 2012
Deadline for Submissions: April 9, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PST
The City and County of San Francisco has a collection of over 4,000 artworks under its jurisdiction. Represented in the collection are both historical and contemporary artworks in nearly every media, including but not limited to historical monuments, sculptures, paintings, murals, photography, works on paper and electronic media. Works in the collection range from the small and portable artworks hung in City offices to monumental sculptures and civic monuments.
By City Charter, the Arts Commission is charged with the duty to maintain these works. To better fulfill this charge we are seeking art care technicians, art handlers, contractors, conservators, printers and framers who can provide a wide variety of services.
By issuing a Request for Qualifications for individuals and firms that are qualified within any one or all of the art service categories described below, the Arts Commission will be able to establish a pre-qualified pool of firms with whom the Commission may contract for services without having further general bidding requirements. Contracts will range in length from one to three years and the City shall have the option to extend the term of a contract for a period of one (1) year, which the City may exercise in its sole, absolute discretion.
