Increasing development has prompted the City of Ocoee to seek help with its survey work, publishing a request for qualifications (RFQ) this week for a continuing contract for surveying and mapping services.

Licensed surveying and mapping firms could be providing a variety of surveying and mapping services for various planning, design and development review projects.


The city's planning division has used contractors like this on an as-needed basis to help with plat review, acting as the city surveyor on subdivision plats.

The type of assignments could include horizontal and vertical survey for existing and new roadways, drainage ponds and canals, verification of existing right-of-way lines, land water level elevation verification, and surveying underground and overhead utilities.

The city may award continuing contracts to the top three firms that it deems most qualified.

Applicants will be considered based on factors that include whether a firm is a certified minority business, its past performance, ability to meet time and budget requirements, location, and their workload in the past, present and future.

The city's purchasing agent will take written questions regarding the RFQ through Nov. 15. The deadline to submit qualification packages is Nov. 22, 2 p.m. at the city's purchasing office.

Prospective applicants can find the RFQ no. 1701 and related documents through Demandstar, VendorLink or the city's website.
