Multidisciplinary Engineering Services Contract for Seattle City Light (SCL) Power Generation Projects

The City of Seattle, Seattle City Light Department (“SCL”), seeks to engage a consultant(s) to provide consulting services on an as needed basis in response to unplanned operational disruptions, technical staff shortages during peak workload periods and need for specialized expertise.

SCL is seeking qualified firms to provide the following:

It may include work necessary for construction and maintenance at SCL’s hydroelectric facilities, including dams, powerhouses, switchyards and supporting facilities, transmission towers, and electrical distribution infrastructure. Supporting facilities may include warehouses, roads, water and sewage systems, bridges, residences and other buildings. In most cases, the work will deal with existing facilities, structures or equipment. It may be mitigation work required by our operating licenses in areas adjacent to SCL’s hydroelectric facilities.

The work may consist of planning; analysis; conceptual design; preliminary design; final design; assistance during fabrication, installation or construction; or assistance during project closeout. The work may include documentation required by other Agencies, for example, documentation required to obtain environmental or building permits. Meetings with SCL engineers and operations personnel, and visits to remote sites will be part of most Work Authorizations.

Emergency response to unforeseen events may be required. Attending meetings, including meetings with regulatory agencies and public meetings, to explain, and possibly defend, the Consultant’s design and recommendations, may be required.

The term of the contract shall extend from the date of execution by the General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of Seattle City Light, or designee, through December 31, 2017. City Light has identified a budget for this project and estimates the contract to be $4,000,000.00.

SCL may amend the original contract for scope, time, and funding, subject to the continuing appropriation authority by the Seattle City Council.
