Industry Forum: August 14, 2012
CHSRA to highlight Central Valley Construction Packages 2, 3 & 4
The California High-Speed Rail Authority is hosting an Industry Forum on August 14, 2012 at the Save Mart Center on the California State University Fresno campus. The event will provide firms interested in pursuing High-Speed Rail contracts with an overview of the Request for Qualifications, scheduled for release in September.
The general session will be followed by a teaming event, where potential prime contractors will be encouraged to set up an exhibition area in order to provide information to and gather information from Small Businesses, Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises who attend the event. As a reminder, the California High-Speed Rail Authority has established an overall Small Business goal of 30%.
