Pima Association of Governments (PAG) is seeking a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from qualified professional firms or individuals, either singly or through a joint venture with others, to form an On-Call list of consultants to provide professional services for the development of initial project scoping documents via Project Assessments (PAs). The PAs are to provide assessment, prioritization, design concept, and cost of safety improvement projects. As part of the PA development process, the analysis of crash data through network screening, location specific diagnostics, and identification of high priority locations at the project level may be included in close coordination with existing PAG efforts. The program will be managed by the Pima Association of Governments (PAG); the PAs will be developed in conjunction with the PAG jurisdiction requesting the assessment.
The complete RFQ can be obtained from the PAG website PAGregion.com/aboutPAG/RFPRFQ. Questions regarding this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) are to be submitted to PAG in writing by e-mail or fax to the attention of Teresa Ruiz at (520) 620-6981 (fax), or by email at: TRuiz@pagregion.com. Questions will be accepted until 2:00 P.M. (local time) on March 6, 2018. Firms or individuals are encouraged to submit their questions as early as possible to allow PAG adequate time to prepare accurate and comprehensive responses. It is the responsibility of potential candidates to monitor the Web postings to ensure they have all up-to-date information on the RFQ requirements.
All RFQs must be received by PAG on or before 2:00 p.m. on March 22, 2018. RFQs will be opened at 2:15 p.m. PAG reserves the right to disqualify any and all RFQs, which are not in accordance with the prescribed requirements of this RFQ.
In order, to expedite the delivery of consultant services, PAG will select an On-Call list of qualified consultants to participate in the Strategic Transportation Safety Plan – Phase 2. The intent of this program is to enable PAG staff to augment existing resources by forming a pool of qualified consultants to provide specialized services that are required for executing tasks and projects in the identified areas.
