  I. Introduction & District Information
    The San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD) on behalf of Skyline College
    seeks qualified bids for the purchase and installation of telescoping gymnasium bleachers to
    replace the current and worn outdated bleachers.

    Approximately 40,000 people throughout San Mateo County attend one of the three Colleges
    of the San Mateo County Community College District. Although the boundaries of the San
    Mateo County Community College District are the same as those of the County, the District
    Board of Trustees is independent of County government. County voters elect the five-member
    Board of Trustees every four years, and that board governs one of the largest and most
    innovative two-year college systems in California.
