Question 4 Can you provide the list of routes and number of meters within each bill cycle?
IBTAMIsolutions1 on 30-May-2023 9:17:47 AM CDT
Question 1 Is the solicitation open to out of state contractors? With the new reciprocity agreement between Florida and Louisiana, it is easier for contractors to become licensed in Louisiana. Can a Florida contractor bid the solicitation and then apply for reciprocity?

Question 3 Why is the required classification “Telecommunications” when the scope of work involves “meter replacement” ONLY?
