Request for Proposals (RFP) for

SPU RFP/Contract# 20-034-S

The City of Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to provide support in all phases of the capital project delivery lifecycle: options analysis phase, design phase, and provide services during the construction and commissioning phase.

There are two solicitation categories. A prime consultant may only submit one proposal in one of the two categories.  In “Category A” the prime consultant role is open to all firms and the contract amount will be $3M.  In “Category B” the prime consultant role is only open to firms listed as a small business on the City’s Online Business Directory and the contract amount will be $1.5M. SPU is permitted to increase these contract amounts in future should there be a higher volume of consultant support needed than what is currently forecasted.  

This contract will be a multi-year on-call contract; a specific deliverable schedule is not known at this time.  Work assignments will be developed iteratively over the course of the contract with varying dates for milestones and deliverables depending on the scope. Each Contract will be executed for a period of three (3) years, with the option to extend up to an additional two (2) years, for a total of five (5) years.
