The City of Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to provide support to further develop and improve SPU’s Asset Management Program.

This contract will leverage previous work done by consultants and in-house staff. It is intended that the work will be performed in phases. The initial phase will be to complete a Utility Asset Management Assessment. The subsequent phases may include a broad range of services required to support and supplement SPU staff to complete the work of future contract amendments.

The initial contract will cover the first phase only, and subsequent phases will be performed by amendment(s) to the contract. The initial contract will be for three years with the option to extend an additional two years. The cost of the first phase of this project, Utility Asset Management Assessment, is estimated in the range of $100,000 to $250,000.  The ultimate estimated total value of all phases of this contract is currently expected to be in the range of $1,000,000 to $2,000,000.
