Project Description:  The City of Seattle’s City Budget Office (CBO), in partnership with the Seattle City Council, is seeking a qualified consultant to assess the costs and the operational model of the Seattle Fire Department (SFD). This assessment, to be completed in three phases (full detail provided later), will include:

 Phase I: A baseline management and operations analysis, and an opportunity assessment of short-term and long-term efficiency opportunities,

Phase II: An in-depth evaluation of short-term efficiency opportunities, and,

Phase III: An in-depth evaluation of the Fire Department’s management and operations and long-term operational efficiency opportunities.

 The City of Seattle is requesting a comprehensive review of all aspects of Seattle Fire Department operations, including its management structure, as well as short-term and long-term opportunities to make adjustments to how these services are provided in order to achieve operational efficiencies and effectiveness and budgetary savings. The recommendations generated by this work should be ones that the City’s decision makers could consider implementing as early as 2013 in order to help partially address the City’s on-going budget challenges. On the heels of the Great Recession, the City of Seattle continues to face budgetary constraints. The City has made budget reductions to General Subfund-supported services (the primary funding source for the Fire Department) for four consecutive years. Reflecting the importance of preserving the City’s public safety functions, the Fire Department has avoided significant reductions. As the City enters the fifth year of budget reductions, the City’s ability to avoid budget reductions at the Fire Department becomes more challenging. The City is looking for recommendations that would allow the City to continue to provide high-quality emergency response and prevention services at lower financial expense.


The phrase “emergency response and prevention services” in this RFQ includes all of the services provided by the Seattle Fire Department listed in Section 1 of this RFQ.

Project Budget Estimate: $200,000
