The Scope of Services the Authority requires includes, but is not limited to: providing activities checks; photographic, motion picture camera and/or video surveillance; and legal testimony when required.
The Statement of Qualifications shall describe, in five (5) pages or less, the qualifications of the firm and the key personnel on the team. Please include the location of the firm’s office(s) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of New Jersey and/or, the State of Delaware. Describe, in narrative form, your technical plan for accomplishing the work.

After qualification statements from those firms responding to this RFQ have been reviewed and evaluated, the Authority intends to identify those firms most highly qualified to perform the required services. The “short listed” firms will receive a subsequent Request for Proposal (“RFP”).
The Authority is firmly committed to providing equal employment and business opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national original, or non-job related disability. In that regard, the Authority will affirmatively assure that, in regard to any Authority agreement, contract or subcontract entered into pursuant to this matter, qualified and certified minority business enterprises (MBEs) and women business enterprises (WBE’s) will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids and will not be discriminated against on grounds of race, color, religion, sex, age, national original, or non-job related disability.
