Enquiry
With regards to Clause 3.3.4.1 in EOI Addendum #1 for the positions of Senior Structural Designer and Senior Foundation Designer/Manager it states “Individual shall be registered in RAQS under Bridge Engineering- Design & Evaluation - Complex Structures (multi-span)” and “Individual shall be registered in RAQS under Foundation Engineering - Geotechnical (Structures and Embankments) - High Complexity”, respectively. In past EOI it usually states “Individual must be from a firm registered in RAQS under the specialty: Design & Evaluation – Complex Structures”. Additionally, individuals are not listed on the RAQS website, only companies. We understand from our design professional partner firms, that it has been MTO’s position that it is the firm, and not the individual, that is required to be RAQS qualified for specific disciplines and that this requirement has also been affirmed by the MTO at regular MTO – Consulting Engineers Ontario (CEO) Liaison meetings, and has been evidenced in those meeting’s minutes. Can the Ministry revisit this section that states that Individuals shall be registered in RAQS.
