Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority
RFQ - Concrete Mix
PR 24581
INTRODUCTION
The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is seeking quotes from potential vendors to
supply concrete mix for multiple RTA construction related activities. The RTA uses concrete mix
mainly for infrastructure pole foundations, sidewalk pads and bus shelter pads, but other needs
may arise.
This contract term is for three (3) years. It is estimated that the RTA will use approximately 250
cubic yards of concrete mix per year or 750 cubic yards over the three (3) year contract term.
These quantities are estimates based on anticipated project work and shall not be considered
any guarantee of concrete mix and will not become part of the contract terms. In addition, these
estimated quantities may vary each year.
The quote form attached has a section for vendors to put their annual cost per cubic yard of
concrete mix. In addition, there is a section for vendors to list other associated costs that may
be billed to RTA depending on the needs of the particular job. The contract award will be based
on the total cost for three (3) year contract term of the concrete mix.
