All submittals shall be clearly marked “STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS FOR ON-CALL PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING SERVICES.” The submittal package is to be addressed and delivered to the Public Works Department, 1122 Hwy 84 South, Pagosa Springs, Colorado, 81147. ATTENTION; Robert Perry, Archuleta County Engineer.
    It is anticipated that Statements of Qualifications will be reviewed early January with approval of a list of qualified engineers made on January 16, 2018. The on-call list will remain valid for approximately one year, from January 20, 2018 to December 31, 2018. The County reserves the right to extend the on-call list in one year increments for an additional two years. No guarantee of anticipated contract awards or funding is stated or implied and future consultant activity is dependent upon community needs, economic conditions, funding levels and Board of County Commissioners approval.
    Your Statement of Qualifications will be evaluated based upon your firm’s level of experience in providing the specified services and the overall qualifications of the firm. Engineering firms will then be selected based upon the firm’s relative qualifications, ability to perform the work within the specified time-frame and strength of recommendations from listed client references.
    The selected firms will be put on an approved on-call list. Any firm on the list may be invited to submit proposals on an as-needed basis. If individual proposals are technically satisfactory, the County will negotiate a fee and enter into a Professional Services Contract formatted per the County’s boilerplate contract, or by signing a letter-agreement, as deemed appropriate. Firms may request a copy of the boilerplate contract to assist them in developing their Statements of Qualifications. If terms for individual proposals are deemed to be unacceptable by the County, the County may, at its sole discretion, advise the Consultant of its decision to end the negotiation and seek another proposal from another firm on the list, or to issue an RFQ outside of the provisions of the existing on-call list.
    Please limit your submittal to ten (10) pages or less, not counting cover letter and table of contents. Please be aware that the review committee members may limit their proposal review activities solely to Items 1 through 5 listed below. It is requested that you respond to the following items in numerical order.
    Each statement and subsequent proposal will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
    1. Prime firm’s direct experience in providing services of a similar nature, on projects completed within the past five years and appropriate client contracts for the referenced project or projects. Include budget and actual cost information for past projects, along with planned and actual construction schedules.
    2. Understanding and approach to providing the specified services, including a discussion of major issues to be addressed and challenges to be overcome.
    3. Experience and qualifications of project team, including sub-consultant experience and specific areas of expertise and experience. Identify each team member’s role in the projects identified and include a proposed organizational chart for the services to be provided, with responsibilities identified for team members.
    4. Principal office location and local office work role. Identify each staff’s home office and the percent of the work to be performed at the local office.
    5. Overall quality of proposal in terms of schedule, experience, strength of team, presentation (if given) and approach.
    The selection committee will consist of, but is not limited to representatives of the County of Archuleta Public Works and Engineering Departments. Selections and contract awards are subject to the approval of the Board of County commissioners.
    Firms intending to submit proposals are hereby notified that the County will make no reimbursements for any costs incurred prior to issuance of a formal “notice to proceed.” The County reserves the right to reject any and all proposals and to re- solicit or cancel this solicitation if deemed in the best interest of the County.
