RFQ Language For Hiring A Security Consultant?

I have been tasked with creating a Request For Qualifications document in search of a security consultant to oversee an upgrade at a government facility. The project will require an assessment of the current systems and assistance in evaluating proposals throughout the public bid process. The system consists of an integrated access control/video/intercom system that controls approximately 220 doors at several facilities. I have found a few sample RFQ documents online as a starting point. What qualifications should I require as a minimum?
