Thank you Greg,
Who prepared the  original schematic design for the YMCA and  why wasn’t that design signed and sealed  at that time ?.
Did the  Architect retained by the YMCA   subsequently sign and seal his original design,  and the rest of the RFP in an attempt to bring it into compliance,  OR  was a different Architect retained for that purpose and if so why,  and who was that Architect ??.
I am having a hard time understanding why legal would not have reviewed the YMCA  RFP  prior to its release, and would ask  what  do you mean  “you assumed  that the City Attorney had reviewed the package prior to its release and she had not done that “
 Was she tasked by anyone to your knowledge  with conducting such a review ?
Should she have  known  on her own to review any RFQ with an estimated budget of $ 1.3 million ??
Are you meaning to suggest she  was somehow negligent in failing to conduct a legal review of this RFP ???

    The YMCA’s architect was RS&H. They prepared the schematic design. Since we were not in privity with RS&H we hired Graham Gilchrist to review and sign and seal the RFP package.
    The City Attorney’s office was involved in several meetings as the RFP package was being developed and provided input. I have not suggested that the City Attorney’s office was negligent or didn’t do her job.
