   Responses to Written Questions:

   Q1)    Will this contract be awarded to the “lowest bidder”?
   A1)    Yes. This contract will be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. That means the
          contract will be awarded to the Bidder who quotes the lowest cost and also meets all of
          the bid specifications and requirements.

   Q2)    The RFQ calls for a performance bond of 50% of the total contract amount. Please define
          the total contract amount.
   A2)    The total contract amount is the amount on the winning bid form for each awarded

   Responses to Verbal Questions:

   Q3)    Does the County have a preference to award the contract to a single vendor versus multiple
   A3)    The County prefers a single vendor to handle all 3 locations. But the County reserves
          the right to make a multiple award.

   Q4)    Will a list of all attendees at the bidder’s conferences be given?
   A4)    Yes. A list of attendees will be provided in the Addendum.

   Q5)    On page 8, Item 4.c. states:
              Contractor shall be responsible for the security of all vehicles under its control, and shall
              be responsible for any damage to, or theft of, any such vehicle(s).
          Can the County please clarify what the contractor is responsible for?
   A5)    The contractor will be held responsible for theft or damage of vehicles under its
          control. A vehicle is in the contractor’s control when one of its employees occupies it or
          when the vehicle keys are in the employee’s possession. The contractor manages and is
          responsible for County pool vehicles at both the Oakland Parking Facility (OPF) and
          the Amador Parking Facility (APF). The contractor will also be responsible for
          instances of employee theft, damage or dishonesty, either from or to the County, or
          from or to anyone else using the parking facilities. In addition, if the contractor or one
          of its employees locks keys inside a vehicle the contractor will be responsible for
          retrieving the keys.

   Q6)    In relation to Question 5 above, if there is a break-in to a non-County vehicle and something
          is stolen would a claim be filed under the contractor’s insurance?
   A6)    No. Furthermore, such incidents will be directed to the County’s General Service
          Agency (GSA). County parking facilities have a no liability policy. GSA will refer such
          incidents to the local Police or Sheriff’s Department.

   Q7)    How many pool vehicles are there at each facility?
                     County of Alameda, General Services Agency – Purchasing
                                RFQ No. 900588, Addendum No. 2

   A7)    The number varies. There are approximately 15-25 pool vehicles at the Hayward
          facility and 20-25 at the Oakland facility.

   Q8)    Does the County provide time-clocks and safes at all the booths?
   A8)    The County provides a safe at each location. No time-clocks are provided.

   Q9)    Can the County provide a breakdown of the parking metering equipment and/or systems
          being used at each facility?
   A9)    The County currently uses equipment and a system provided by McGann Amano
          Associates at all three facilities. At each gate there is a fee computer/register, a
          printer/receipt machine, a validation machine, a cash drawer, a ticket machine, gate
          arm, rolling gate doors and a card reader.

   Q10) How old is the equipment? Does the County plan any upgrades?
   A10) The equipment in use is at least seven years old. The County is planning to upgrade,
        eventually, but that will be subject to budgetary constraints.

   Q11) Is the contractor responsible for lost tickets or tickets not accounted for?
   A11) The contractor must account for all tickets. But they will not be responsible for
        parking receipts lost when County staff authorizes the unpaid release of vehicles.

   Q12) The County requires criminal background checks. Does the County have specific standards
        or criteria regarding criminal background checks?
   A12) The County is interested in felony convictions occurring after age 18.

   Q13) Why is the County going out for bid on these services?
   A13) The County is going out to bid because the current contract is set to expire.

   Q14) Is the incumbent contractor eligible to rebid?
   A14) Yes.

   Q15) Who is the incumbent and how long was there contract term?
   A15) Starzz Management Services, Inc. is the incumbent for all 3 facilities. They have held
        the contract for 5 years.

   Q16) Are there any new features or challenges that the County is looking toward that bidders need
        to address?
   A16) The County is looking at the possibility of installing pre-paid ticket systems so people
        could validate and pre-pay their tickets at a machine and then use a designated booth
        to exit. Such a system, however, would be in addition to a booth attendant. This
        change may not be implemented.

   Q17) In Exhibit B, there is a column for “Est. # of Hours per year.” Do those hours include
        cleaning and maintenance?
                     County of Alameda, General Services Agency – Purchasing
                                RFQ No. 900588, Addendum No. 2

   A17) No. This estimate represents the hours for attendants inside the booths.

   Q18) The bid form does not include a line item for cleaning and maintenance. Should bidders
        include cost for cleaning and maintenance in their bid response?
   A18) All costs should be included in the hourly cost bid for each facility.

   Q19) The County requests a full-time account manager. Is that one account manager per facility
        or does the County want one account manager for all 3 facilities?
   A19) That is for the bidder to decide. But, the County wants a single-point of contact who
        will respond to inquiries from the County.

   Q20) Does the account manager have to be on site?
   A20) No.

   Q21) On page 7, the hours for the Amador Facility are listed as 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. But on the
        Exhibit B, the hours are listed as 7:00 am – 6:00 pm. Which is correct?
   A21) Please see the revised Amador Parking Facility requirements at the beginning of this
        Addendum. The correct hours for the Amador Parking Facility are 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.

   Q22) Does the County define the cleaning and maintenance schedule or is that left for the
        contractor to decide?
   A22) The cleaning and maintenance schedule will be determined by the contractor with
        agreement by the County.

   Q23) Does the County provide the tickets?
   A23) Yes.

   Q24) Page 9, Item j. states:
           County will reserve the right to increase or decrease the number of attendants with no
           increase in the hourly rates.
        Can the County please clarify what this means?
   A24) That item refers to the possibility of the County using a pre-paid ticket system which
        might potentially replace a booth attendant. If attendant hours are reduced, for any
        reason, the contractor will not be allowed to increase their hourly rates to compensate.

   Q25) Would the County consider putting a time clock in each booth in case equipment breaks or
        goes down so the attendant doesn’t have to write down the time manually?
   A25) No.

   Q26) Who clears the safe at each facility?
   A26) The contractor clears the safe.

   Q27) Are there panic alarms in the booths? If not, would the County consider putting them in?
   A27) There are no panic alarms and the County does not plan to install them.

   Q31) Can you provide the cost for maintenance and clean-up by the current vendor for the last 3
   A31) Maintenance and clean-up is included in the hourly rate charged by the current

   A32) The hourly rate includes all bidder expenses and overhead including staff,

   A35) The County is not aware of any such representation.

   Q36) May bidders visit the facilities as long as the employees are not disturbed?
   A36) Yes. The parking lots are open to the Public. But, Bidder’s are asked not to question
        or interact with attendants or other garage management or County staff. Such contact
        could result in the disqualification of a bid if it is deemed to have compromised the
        bidding process.

   Q37) On page 24, Item 2.a. states:

   Q57) Were those damages the responsibility of the operator?
   A57) No. They occurred after hours. The contractor is only responsible for damages
        suffered during hours of operation.

   Q58) What happens if an attendant checks out a vehicle to someone without a Blue Card?
   A58) The contractor will be responsible for the cost of a vehicle, out on an unauthorized
        basis, at the same rate as would be charged via the standard interdepartmental rental

   Q59) Do any of the facilities have security guards after hours?
   A59) No. Security guards are only present at the ALCO and Oakland facilities during hours
        of operation. The Amador Parking Facility does not have security guards at any time.

        service calls.

   Q62) Will County maintenance staff have access to and/or work on equipment after hours?
   A62) Yes.

   Q63) Will the contractor be notified when after hours work is performed by County staff?
   A63) Not necessarily. It will depend on the work being performed.

   Q64) How are payments to the operator handled? If the operator submits the monthly cash report
        late would that delay receipt of payment for services?
   A64) The contractor makes deposits daily for any cash received. The receipts of those
        deposits are submitted to the County on a monthly basis. The monthly cash report is
        due on the 14th of each month. The County will not approve the contractors invoice
        until it is in receipt of the report. So, a late report will could delay payment to the

   Q65) Regarding the daily deposits for cash received, may the monies be dropped into a night
   A65) No. Deposits have to be made inside the bank.

   Q66) How will an attendant, who works until 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm, make a deposit if the bank is
   A66) There is a safe in each booth. The contractor will have to decide how to store, retrieve
        and deposit receipts daily.

   Q70) Would the County consider setting up a night depository if the contractor picked up the
        receipt the next day for the previous night’s drop?

        day, as soon as possible.

   Q71) Are the safes in each booth split? Is there is a place for money drops and a place for personal
   A71) No. Each safe has one compartment, only.
