Four proposals were received by the February 12, 2018 closing. Two respondents submitted fully responsive proposals: Orrick & Erskine, LLP and Right-of-Way Management Consultant Group (Skeens Consulting Services), and two respondents, Contract Land Staff, LLC and Bliss Associates were deemed non-responsive because they did not respond to the minimum requirements of the RFP.
The proposals were evaluated by a committee comprised of City staff. The committee used the evaluation criteria included in the RFP to evaluate the proposals: 1) evidence of experience and references for similar projects, 2) detailed approach of processes, and 3) pricing.
Right-of-Way Management Consultant Group (Skeens Consulting Services) demonstrated superior experience, a detailed approach as to how they will provide the services required, and their price was the lowest among respondents. Staff recommends award to Right-of-Way Management Consultant Group (Skeens Consulting Services). Expenditures will not exceed budgeted amounts.
Price agreements establish set prices that remain in effect for a designated period of time. This allows City departments to utilize the agreements in the performance of their operations without requiring a bid process each time a service or commodity is required.
