Open Bids and Requests for Proposals

Request for Proposals-Fleet Management and Vehicle Acquisition Services

This Request for Proposals is limited to certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises and/or non-profit 501(c)(3) Community-Based Organizations.
The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) seeks a Vendor to provide Fleet Management and Vehicle Acquisition Services. MRCA’s current fleet includes approximately 115 vehicles used regularly for agency business. Respondents must be able to provide on-road assets through leasing or financing options as well as fleet management/maintenance services.  Review the RFP here.









Disadvantaged Business Participation

Diversity, inclusion, equity, and relevancy are essential to MRCA’s ability to achieve protection of Southern California’s open space and recreation resources. The MRCA recognizes that there is a fundamental right of all people to equitably access Southern California’s rich environmental resources and participate in decisions that affect these resources. The historic pattern of environmental burdens borne disproportionately by disadvantaged communities can be altered through deliberate practices that increase inclusion and participation. MRCA’s purchasing power can be used to promote environmental equity, diversity, and inclusion in all forms.

In 2017, MRCA’s Governing Board adopted an Outreach and Advertising Policy for contracts and established a target participation rate for disadvantaged business enterprises of 20%.
