Deadline for 1 October Memorial Evaluators
Between July 1 and 31, the 1 October Memorial Committee invites anyone who has a perspective, interest, or expertise that may be useful in evaluating responses to Request for Qualifications (RFQs) to apply. Anyone, regardless of where they live, may participate.
This participation pathway, Call for Evaluators, will result in the creation of a seven-member jury tasked with evaluating all RFQ submissions and recommending finalists to the committee. The finalists will develop proposals, including a design concept, model, and budget for the memorial.
The jury’s role is essential to determining which professional teams responding to the RFQ are most qualified to build a world-class permanent memorial. Jury members will complete an empirical evaluation of all submissions based on considerations such as qualifications and expertise of the firm and its team, experience in building public projects, and adhering to budgets and schedules. Additionally, jury members will consider the firm’s experience in community engagement and evaluate their overall commitment to the vision, mission, and goals for the memorial.
