City of Cumming Utility Consulting Engineer

Request for Qualifications

 

  1. SCOPE OF SERVICES:

 

The City requests a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) from qualified firms with experience providing utility engineering services (other provided services are beneficial).  The city will enter into a contractual arrangement for the provision of utility consulting engineering services. Although not necessary, the prospective consultant may wish to include sub-consultants to supplement the Statement of Qualifications.

 

The Utility Consulting Engineer’s primary role will be to provide engineering support to the Cumming Utilities associated with water and wastewater planning, design, contracting, and Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI).  The city currently processes between 2-5 utility projects per year with other engineering and design projects as needed.

 

On an as-needed basis, and given the qualifications of the selected consultant, additional on-demand services may include state and federal permit applications, master planning services for water, wastewater and storm water, interactions with county and state agencies, construction management; and other similar activities.

 

The firm selected to serve as Utility Consulting Engineer will provide the following assistance as needed.  The Consulting Engineer should serve as an advocate of Cumming Utilities.  These services will generally entail:

 

  1. Design of water mains, sewer lines, pump stations, treatment facilities and improvements;
  2. Provide technical advice and guidance to the City Administrator and City Council;
  3. Respond to requests for assistance from Cumming Utilities staff;
  4. Provide construction project management including, but not limited to, cost-estimating, creating construction documents, bid management, review contractor qualifications, review construction for quality control and performance, review contractor invoices, and other related construction management activities;
  5. Design of other related facilities;
  6. Assistance in the Cumming Utilities’ utility mapping;
  7. Assist with utility management, including analyzing/implementing local/state/federal regulations, staying familiar with county, state and federal requirements, regulatory reporting, and other related items;
  8. Preparation of reports, concepts and/or preliminary designs for grants applications or projects;
  9. Development Plan Review activities of proposed public and private construction projects within the City, to determine Cumming Utilities’ ability to provide water and wastewater service and to determine compliance with Cumming Utilities’ requirements;
  10. Any other services that may be determined by the City of Cumming.

 

The above list is relatively exhaustive. The city recognizes that a single-firm may not be able to provide all the services listed above (or otherwise needed by the city).  The selected Utility Consulting Engineer should be prepared to seamlessly obtain outside assistance as-needed to undertake such efforts and route them through the primary contract.
