VILLAGE OF MONTGOMERY, IL
DATE PUBLISHED: JUNE 8, 2018
The Village of Montgomery is seeking a qualified Consulting Engineering Firm to enter into a contract for the performance of services On Call or Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) under task or work orders issued on an as-needed or on-call basis.
The Village at times receives Federal funds, which are used to fund some engineering and design related consulting services. Over the recent years, the Village has received Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds for numerous Local Agency Functional Overlay (LAFO), 3R and New Construction/Reconstruction projects. Currently the Village is processing the Aucutt Road LAFO, which is scheduled for the November 9, 2018 State Letting. The Village anticipates that they will continue to apply for STP funding, as well as other Federal funding sources including, but not limited to, Illinois Transportation Enhancement (ITEP), Congestion Mitigation Air Quality/Transportation Alternatives Program (CMAQ/TAP), Surface Transportation Block Grant: Bridge (STPG: Bridge) and Statewide Planning & Research (SPR).
The Village is in need of professional Phase I, II and III (preliminary/design/construction) engineering services for various Federally funded projects from the funding sources listed above. The typical types of projects funded by those sources include, but are not limited to, LAFO roadway resurfacing projects, roadway widening or reconstruction projects, intersection improvements, pedestrian/bicycle facilities, bridge replacement or rehabilitation, and engineering studies.
The Village reserves the right to perform a separate Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) process on any given project, depending on the complexity of the assignment and if the Village determines it is in their best interest.
The established contract period for this IDIQ shall be five (5) years, which is the time from execution of the IDIQ contract to when all work orders are issued. The total time from execution of an IDIQ contract to the completion of all work orders issued will not exceed ten (10) years. The maximum total dollar amount which may be awarded under this IDIQ is $3,000,000.00.
The typical services to be provided are described in the Minimum Scope of Services section of this proposal.
It is anticipated that some phases of engineering services assigned under this IDIQ will be partially funded by Federal funding sources. Therefore the selection of the consultant will follow the QBS process. The Phase III portion of the Aucutt Road LAFO project is funded by Federal and local sources.
