Request for Proposal for Cost AllocatorOriginal Date Posted: October 29, 2012 3:32 pm
Project Scope: See RFP (click on link above).
Project Background: The City of Seattle, King County, the Port of Seattle, and Boeing (together the Lower Duwamish Working Group, or LDWG) are requesting proposals from individuals or organizations to serve as the Allocator to apportion liability under the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Washington State Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) among the LDWG members and other potentially responsible parties (PRPs).
The four LDWG parties have been investigating the environmental contamination in the Lower Duwamish under an Administrative Order and Settlement Agreement issued jointly by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Washington Department of Ecology in 2000. EPA expects to issue a Record of Decision in early 2014, setting forth cleanup requirements. In anticipation of the Record of Decision, LDWG and other PRPs want to participate in a voluntary, non-binding alternative dispute resolution process to allocate shares of liability. The process will require an Allocator, who will be responsible for allocating past costs and liability for future costs among the parties. LDWG is seeking a qualified person or organization to provide such services.
Proposal Due Date and Time: 11/27/2012, 5:00 P.M. (Pacific)
