Request for Qualifications

The SCTA 2050 Comprehensive Transportation Plan contains a variety of transportation projects anticipated to be delivered over the next 30 years. These projects often require resources and expertise beyond that available through the staffing resources of SCTA, and may include but are not limited to the following types of projects:

  • Operational or widening roadway projects (on local roadways or the state highway system)
  • Interchange modifications
  • Traffic signal and roundabout projects
  • Bridge projects
  • Bicycle and pedestrian projects
  • Complete Street projects
  • Railroad crossing modifications and grade separations
  • Passenger rail projects
  • Transit facilities and amenities
  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure
  • Landscaping and mitigation planting projects (on local roadways or the state highway system)

The purpose of SCTA issuing this solicitation is to expedite project delivery and project/program management commitments by condensing what would otherwise be multiple Request for Qualifications (RFQ) processes into one SCTA administered RFQ process to expedite consultant hiring and minimize administrative costs.

The result of this RFQ process will be to establish on-call lists of pre-qualified consultants and enter into Master Agreements for a period of five (5) years. The estimated commencement date is July 1, 2022 with an ending date of June 30, 2027. During the term of the contract, Task Orders using Project Scopes of Work, will be used to establish the individual project scope, schedule, deliverables, and cost for each Task Order and must be signed by SCTA before work begins. Submission of proposals for Task Orders do not guarantee the award of any work. Execution of the Master Agreement by a Consultant does not guarantee any work will be provided to consultant under an Agreement.
