Spokane Regional Transportation Council
Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC) hereinafter referred to as "Project Manager," is requesting submittals from qualified firms with expertise in transportation planning, transit, engineering, and public involvement for a study consisting of two major components: the Division Street Corridor Study and the Division High Performance Transit Implementation Study, hereinafter referred to as "Study." Electronic submission of qualifications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. (PST), Wednesday, May 22, 2019 to SRTC, 421 W. Riverside Ave., Suite 500, Spokane, WA 99201, firstname.lastname@example.org.

A pre-submittal teleconference will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 11:00 a.m. (PST) to discuss any questions about the project. A dial-in number will be provided to all interested parties.
The Study will focus on Division Street opportunities and challenges with completion of the North Spokane Corridor and implementation of High Performance Transit (HPT) by STA. Phase 1 of the study will consist of higher-level public engagement to determine the magnitude of potential and desired transportation and land use change within the corridor, starting with the assumption that there will be HPT along Division. Phase 1 has a large public engagement component, in-depth HPT analysis, and multimodal operational analyses to establish baseline and future conditions for the corridor. Next phases of the Study will take findings from Phase 1 and further develop alternative concepts for Division Street. The Study will result in recommendations that address transit operations, multimodal planning, geometrics, safety, and land use opportunities in the corridor study area.
There is no mandatory Underutilized Disadvantaged Business Enterprise goal for this study. Prior to selection, the Firms ability to have a WSDOT approved Indirect Cost Rate (ICR) that is compliant with 48 CFR Part 31 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) or has been approved through the Safe Harbor Indirect Cost Rate Pilot Program is required.
