The city of Longwood plans to extend multiple consultant service contracts in the coming months to firms in seven different real estate and development-related service disciplines, according to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) published last week.
The contracts are anticipated to be issued for architecture services (up to three firms), engineering services (up to five), geotechnical and construction engineering inspection (up to three), landscape architecture services (up to three), planning and design services (up to three), surveying and mapping services (up to three), and water/wastewater engineering services (up to five).
The continuing services contract would be non-exclusive, with work prescribed as required by the city.
Applicants will be asked to detail a comprehensive summary of experience and qualifications of individuals who would be chosen to serve as project managers for the city. Proposed approaches to each discipline and project methodology are also requested.
A selection committee should begin evaluating proposals the week of Sept. 4, with oral presentations scheduled as needed with finalists, and recommendations made to the City Commission by Sept. 18. Contract negotiations would follow.
A pre-proposal conference will be held on Aug. 10, 9 a.m., at Longwood's City Commission chambers. Applications are due Aug. 25 by 2 p.m.
Full documents for RFQ no. 7272017 can be found through the city's Procurement Division webpage.
