Bids are requested for a one-year term contract with two, one year renewal options for English to Spanish interpretation and translations services, for written materials and on-site/in-person services, from local vendors as per the specifications contained herein. The City reserves the right to award any single item and/or combination of items as it deems in its own best interest, and to award to multiple contractors as it deems in its own best interests to do so.The goal of the services provided is to ensure Spanish-speaking citizens (as well as those speaking other languages) throughout Grand Rapids are informed of the conversations and decisions made by the City Commission, allowing for maximum participation and contributing to the overall process. Schedules for known meetings (including Commission and community meetings) will be provided as soon as they become available by the City project manager(s) for individual ordering departments. While every effort will be made to provide advance notice of service requirements, vendors shall be aware that in certain instances, there will be 24-hour notice or less of the need for translation services; Contractors are expected to provide service even with such short notice. Due to this requirement, the City strongly desires oral translators be within a 45-minute drive from downtown Grand Rapids. Meetings range from 2-4 hours in length, with the average being 2-1/2 hours.
