The City of Santa Ana is committed to the principles of Total Quality Service (TQS) in serving its customers.
All aspects of the City’s service are affected including our commitment to making on time payment for material
and services received.

Since vendors, who provide services and/or material to the City are indirectly serving the same customers, it is
important for the City to expect vendors to share the same commitment to quality including price, delivery
and product quality, as well as timely response and service quality.

Therefore, prepare a statement of your “quality commitment” to accompany your bid. The statement
should address the following five items in regard to services and/or material provided to the City for your
quoted price:

           1. ON-TIME DELIVERY: a commitment to delivering material & services
              on or before the promised time.

           2. TIMELY RESPONSE: a commitment to consistent timely response
              to all service requests.

           3. QUALITY AS SPECIFIED: a commitment to provide products and/or
              service meeting or exceeding the specification at your quoted price.

           4. QUALITY CONTROL: a commitment to use methods or procedures
              to assure quality control of service, material and invoicing.

           5. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION: a commitment to resolve customer concerns
              regarding the quality of service or material supplied.

The quality statement should be included with your bid. It is required as a prerequisite to making your bid
responsive and therefore must be submitted before your bid is evaluated. To the extent that your
statement enhance the quality of service or material provided to the City, your statement will be incorporated in
the terms and conditions of the contract.
