Bid Description: Des Moines : ENGINEERING SERVICES DEPARTMENT REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS ON-CALL GENERAL CIVIL ENGINEERING SERVICES 2022 – 2023 . GENERAL SCOPE: The City of Des Moines is requesting statements of qualifications for firms interested in providing on-call General Civil Engineering Services for various City projects and tasks. The selected consultant(s) shall be responsible for preparing and/or reviewing civil engineering plans and specifications and where necessary, associated NEPA and or SEPA, studies, reports, and permits. The selected consultant(s) will be responsible for review of engineering aspects of selected developer plans. The selected consultant(s) will also provide predesign studies and final design assistance in support of City capital projects, operations, and maintenance including but not limited to, projects selected from the City of Des Moines adopted Transportation & Capital Improvement Plans. The City may also require architectural, landscape and/or urban design services in support of capital projects possibly including, but not limited to, arterial corridor planning, preservation of historic structures and/or improvements in the city center. The selected consultant(s) shall be available on an as-needed basis from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2023. One or more consultant contracts will be considered under this solicitation, each with a maximum cost of up to $1,000,000, incurred under multiple task order assignments. The Consultant(s) will be expected to respond on short notice to requests for technical services to resolve urgent task orders. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES REQUIRED It is the intent of the City of Des Moines that the selected firm(s) will have experience in accomplishing similar work for municipal clients. The ideal firm(s) would be able to provide civil engineering services including the specialty areas of bridge and structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, pavement and roadway design, traffic engineering, transportation planning including preparation of comprehensive transportation plans, corridor studies and traffic impact fee programs, surface water management plans, utility plans, value engineering, construction engineering, and construction management. Other services requested of the selected consultant(s) may include architectural, historic preservation, survey, wetlands & environmental studies, permit acquisition, right-of-way services, materials testing, grant preparation, public outreach and other related work. It is anticipated that the City of Des Moines may select firms in the following (but not limited to) categories: • General Civil Engineering – All services as illustrated above • Structural Engineering – General and bridge services • Geotechnical Engineering – General services • Environmental Engineering – General and permitting services • Construction Management – General services including administration, engineering, inspection, and materials testing • Right-of-Way Acquisition – Real Estate Services Work performed under this scope will consist of individually negotiated task order assignments processed under a consultant agreement. Work will be based upon a project scope that may involve any one or a combination of disciplines and expertise and therefore may require the participation of one or several individual specialists. Work on scoping and/or preparation of the individual task order assignments is not reimbursable. In the case of projects covering two or more distinct phases, when the cost for the second phase depends on decisions reached during the first phase, the task order assignment should cover only the first phase. The consultant agreement(s) for preliminary engineering will state that the consultant may be considered for subsequent phases upon satisfactory performance on prior work and upon negotiation of an agreement for the subsequent phase(s). The City of Des Moines is not obligated to use the same consultant firm for all phases. Separate consultant task order assignments may be considered for each phase (e.g., one for preliminary engineering and another for construction management).

If the selection committee cannot make definitive consultant selections, the City may choose to conduct oral interviews of top ranking firms.
