Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for


On-Call Project Planning, OA, Design & Construction Services
SPU RFQ/Contract# 22-265-S

Teams that deliver drainage and wastewater capital projects at Seattle Public Utilities often require support from the consultant industry. This support is needed for one of two reasons: 1) there is an occurrence of peak workload at the Utility, and 2) the Utility does not have the expertise to complete the work. 

The purpose of this solicitation is to develop a series of on-call contracts that will allow capital project teams swift and efficient access to consultant support.  The Utility plans to select up to twelve consultant teams to fulfill this need and hold a single on-call contract with each consultant team. 

There are two solicitation categories and a prime consultant may only submit one proposal in one of the two categories.  In “Category A” the prime consultant role is open to all firms.  In “Category B” the prime consultant role is only open to firms listed as a small business on the City’s Online Business Directory. Interested consultants are encouraged to review the RFQ/P, background documents, and any RFQ/P addenda online at You must log in to register for Bid Events and to view Bid Question and Response information.
