Page1of6REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision (SDEV) is requesting for proposals (RFP) from
vendors for the purchase of thirty four (34) Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC). The DOCs
will be used for installation on Class 8A trucks owned and operated by Red Cap Transport.
Installation locations will be specified post award announcement.

Installation locations will be specified post award announcement. Bidders are not required
to self perform installation, but are encouraged to quote installation independent of any
equipment.

Qualifying DOC technology is limited to verified manufacturers as certified through the
USEPA and CARB verified technologies list. This list can be found at the following website:
http://www.epa.gov/oms/retrofit/verif-list.htm

Bidders are required to state the environmental air quality emissions benefits of the DOCs
in comparison to the existing engines cited in Attachment 1.

BACKGROUND
SDEV was awarded grant funding by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)
through the 2010-2011 Diesel Emissions Reduction Act Grant Project. This grant was awarded
to SDEV to provide funding assistance to retrofit thirty four (34) diesel engines with EPA
verified technologies on equipment owned by Red Cap Transport. The grant calls for
expediency for the purchase and retrofitting of this equipment. Therefore, SDEV will ask for
the utmost efficiency and cooperation by the selected vendor.

QUESTIONS (Equipment Inspection - site visit)
Due to the expedited timing of this RFP, bidders will be required to complete all due
diligence and engineering investigation prior to the closing of the solicitation period. SDEV
will work with all potential bidders to answer relevant questions and to arrange equipment
inspection if necessary.


Questions are due by 3 p.m. on December 19, 2011.

Please direct all questions to:
Sarah Lang, Clean Diesel Program Manager
Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision

GRANT FUNDING
The grant awarded to SDEV will provide funds for the cost of the thirty four (34) engine
retrofits specified in Attachment 1, appended to this RFP. These engines retrofitted with
DOC’s will produce cleaner emissions than the current engine and exhaust configuration.
The installation of the DOCs will help reduce Particulate Matter, Nitrogen Oxides, Carbon
Monoxide, and Hydrocarbons emitted by the diesel vehicles.

SDEV and Red Cap Transport will provide the necessary direction and communication for
the location and availability of the subject class 8A trucks. Invoicing will be directed to
SDEV using the contact information provided within the “Questions” section of this RFP.
Delivery and installation of DOCs must be completed prior to June 15, 2012.

**NOTE: The proposing vendor must demonstrate to SDEV proof that the DOC being
procured will produce cleaner burning emissions. This could be accomplished through
written statement comparing the existing vehicle to the aftermarket equipment installation
and configuration.

RFP SPECIFICATIONS
