The Town of Stevensville, through its Sub recipient, is currently requesting proposals from qualified engineers to provide design services for the extension and improvements of sanitary sewer mains within and near the recently formed Tax Increment Finance District (TIFD) just north of Stevensville, Montana.
This District was formed in 2011 with the intention of improving existing businesses as well as bringing in new businesses to boost the local economy.  A Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) was done for the TIFD area to assess infrastructure deficiencies and recommend solutions for water, sewer, and rail infrastructure.  The PER was used in conjunction with grant applications to secure approximately $800,000 in grant money for design and construction.  The Economic Development Administration (EDA) is providing $400,000 and the Community Development Block Grant – Economic Development (CDBG-ED) is providing a match of $400,000.
The services that are required in this project are:
• Obtaining permits, easements, and working with the Town of Stevensville to procure properties necessary to accomplish construction of infrastructure;
• Designing sanitary sewer system extensions and improvements including preparing plans and specifications and assembling a bid package in conformance with applicable requirements;
• Providing bid evaluation services such as preparing the advertisements for bid solicitation, conducting the bid opening, and evaluating the bid received;
• Providing construction engineering services such as conducting preconstruction conferences, field staking, on-site inspection of construction work, testing, preparing inspection reports, reviewing contractor request for payment, conducting final inspection, and providing certified paper copy and electronic media “as built” drawings to the Town of Stevensville and appropriate regulatory agencies upon project completion;
• Assisting Ravalli County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA) with funding administration applicable to the project and in compliance with all viable and awarded funding agency requirements.
• Possibly working with the Town and private landowners within this project area to include engineering services that will be needed to connect them to the new infrastructure. Although not part of this RFP these services are likely to be requested of the winning company.
Responses should include:
• The firm’s legal name, address, and telephone number;
• The principal(s) of the firm and their experience and qualifications;
• The experience and qualifications of the staff to be assigned to project;
• A description of the firm’s prior experience working with the Town of Stevensville, governmental grant and regulatory agencies.  Include experience with similar projects, size of community, total construction cost, and name of a local official knowledgeable, regarding the firm’s performance (references);
• A description of the firm’s/project team’s current work activities and how these would be coordinated with the project, as well as the firm’s anticipated availability during the term of the project; and,
• The proposed work plan and schedule for activities to be performed.
• Available start date
• Ten (10) copies of the firm’s proposal submittal
Respondents will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
• Recent and current work for the entity issuing the RFP – 35%
• Qualifications of the professional personnel to be assigned to the project – 30%
• Related experience on similar projects and working with funding agencies on infrastructure projects – 15%
• Present and projected workloads and the consultant’s capability to meet time and project budget requirements – 10%
• Location in proximity to the Town of Stevensville – 10%
The award will be made to the most qualified offeror whose proposal is deemed most advantageous to the Town of Stevensville, all factors considered.  Unsuccessful offerors will be notified as soon as possible following the evaluation of responses by Town representatives.
Questions should be direct to Julie Foster – RCEDA Executive Director, at 406.375.9416, or emailed to julie@rceda.org.  All sealed responses must be postmarked no later than June 27, 2012, and addressed to Attention: Mayor – Town of Stevensville, 206 Buck Street, Stevensville, MT 59870. Please state “North Stevensville TIFD Engineering Services Proposal” on the outside of the response package.
This solicitation is being offered in accordance with state statutes governing procurement of professional services.  Accordingly, the Town of Stevensville reserves the right to negotiate an agreement based on fair and reasonable compensation for the scope of work and services proposed, as well as the right to reject any and all responses deemed unqualified, unsatisfactory or inappropriate.
