Questions and Answers
- Q: Whether companies from Outside USA can apply for this? (like,from India or Canada) A: Yes. “All corporations, partnerships, and other businesses must have the authority to transact business in the State of Florida and be in good standing with the Florida Secretary of State. MetroPlan Orlando will not do business with vendors on the State of Florida’s suspended vendor list or convicted vendor list.” Proposers in a different time zone should specify their availability (office hours) to respond to project questions and attend meetings.
- Q: Whether we need to come over there for meetings? A: It's expected that most pre-production meetings can take place over the phone or by video conference for video projects. However, there may be instances where an in-person meeting may be required. This contract will require the shooting of video in Central Florida and possibly surrounding areas in Florida. There may be times when shooting days are scheduled on very short notice. Due to budget restrictions, travel from outside the Central Florida region will not be reimbursed.
- Q: Can we perform the tasks (related to RFP) outside USA? (like, from India or Canada) A: The shooting of video cannot be done outside the USA. It must be done on location in Central Florida. It is permissible to edit video outside of the United States if necessary, provided that the editor has a good understanding of what is expected from the project.
- Q: Can we submit the proposals via email? A: Yes. Please refer to the scope of services document for details on how to submit via email.
