The Skagit Council of Governments (SCOG) announces a request of proposals (RFP) for professional services relating to preparation of a coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan (CPT-HSTP). SCOG is the regional transportation planning organization for Skagit County and is leading the planning process to develop the plan. The CPT-HSTP will be prepared this year and will include participation from stakeholders in special needs transportation such as: transit agencies; non-profit providers of special needs transportation; tribes; persons with disabilities; individuals with low income; seniors; and others. The CPT-HSTP will be funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) 5310 grant funds and must follow FTA guidance in its development.
SCOG anticipates that a consultant will provide the professional services required for CPT-HSTP development. The scope of services will include: outreach and engagement; data collection and analysis; needs assessment and gap analysis; project evaluation and list; plan preparation and presentation. The expected timeframe for most of this project is spring through fall of 2018, with contract expiration anticipated at the end of the year. Consultants may contact Mark Hamilton at (360) 416-7876 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Proposals must be submitted to SCOG by March 27, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Late proposals will not be considered.
Questions about the RFP were submitted to SCOG by the March 13 deadline. The questions and responses from SCOG are available here.
