San Francisco

The Port of San Francisco is seeking qualifications from firms interested in supplying PR, communications, media and other related professional services on an as-needed basis.

Established in 1850, the Port consists of 7½ miles of property along the western side of San Francisco Bay.

The RFQ is restricted to San Francisco-based firms that are certified as micro, local, and diverse business entities, as part of the Port's effort to engage consultant teams that reflect the city's population.

The Port encourages businesses and residents' participation from the “most disadvantaged communities including Bayview/Hunter’s Point, Chinatown, Mission, South of Market, Tenderloin, Visitacion Valley and Western Addition neighborhoods,” according to the RFP.

It recommends that interested firms “consider the composition of teams in terms of gender, age, ethnicity and race, and utilize teams that include a mix of staff at all organizational levels.”

The Port intends to award up to two contracts with terms of three years and options to extend for an added year.

Qualifications are due Feb. 9. They must be submitted to the city’s portal at
