Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s file or identification number, if known;

A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department’s final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
Any party to this order has the right to seek judicial review of it under Section 120.68, F.S., by filing a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, Mail Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal.

The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency’s proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department’s final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
Any party to this order has the right to seek judicial review of it under Section 120.68, F.S., by filing a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, Mail Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within thirty days after this order if filed with the clerk of the Department.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR CDBG-DR GRANT ADMINISTRATION
CITY OF GRACEVILLE
DEO AGREEMENT #M0172
The City of Graceville hereby requests proposals from qualified individuals or firms to provide administrative services for a Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) in the Disaster Recovery category. The City has been awarded CDBG-DR DEO Agreement No. M0172 in the amount of $1,1547,728.00 for the FFY 2022 funding cycle; therefore, procurement and contracting will follow CDBG regulations.
The funding has been approved to harden the sanitary sewer system throughout the city. The city was awarded $1,154,728 in CDBG DR funding to harden the City ‘s Portable Water System. Following the events of Hurricane Michael, the City was without power for eight days. During this time, one of the City’s three potable water wells was not equipped with an emergency generator and was therefore inoperable. Another well was equipped with an outdated emergency generator that failed in the immediate aftermath of the storm. This left the city dependent on one portable well equipped with an aging generator. One potable water well with limited electrical dependability left residents and City employees in a vulnerable position while attempting to recover in the immediate aftermath.
With a low to moderate (LMI) of over 73% this project qualified as a LMI national objective and has no leverage funds. This project will take place at various sites throughout the city and is considered a city-wide project.
Administrative services will include complete management and reporting for the project with separate tracking for each funding source. A scope of work outlining the tasks to be performed and a proposed cost must be included in the proposal.
The evaluation criteria that will be utilized in the selection of a grant administrator are as follows:

  1. The staff’s number of years of experience with administering projects through the State of Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. 20 pts.
  2. The number of years of experience of the firm’s management group with the State of Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. 20 pts.
  3. Proposed approach to administration of the grant (requires an outline of the proposed tasks to be performed). 20 pts.
  4. Number of favorable client reference letters dated 2011 or later provided from other communities. Please note, only one (1) letter per community will be accepted. 20 pts.
  5. The quality of the response from the client references provided from other communities. 15 pts.
  6. Fee or proposed fee basis. 5 pts.
    In the event of a tie, if one of the businesses involved in the tie is minority or female owned, they shall be ranked above the other firm or firms involved in the tie.
    Proposals for CDBG-DR Administrative Services should include a fee for the services and an explanation or a basis for the fees proposed. Fees shall be lump sum for CDBG-DR services.
    Respondents are required to submit one (1) original and five (5) copies, and an electronic copy in a sealed envelope marked “SEALED PROPOSAL FOR CDBG-DR GRANT ADMINSTRATION M0172”. Proposals must be received by 10:00 A.M CST. on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at the City of Graceville City Hall, Attention: Misty D. Smith, City Clerk, City of Graceville, 5348 Cliff Street, Graceville, Florida 32440. Proposals will be publicly opened on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 10:05 A.M. CST at the City of Graceville, City Hall. You may contact Misty D. Smith or Michelle C. Watkins at City of Graceville, 850-263-3250 for additional information.
    The City of Graceville reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, to waive any informalities or irregularities in the proposal process, and to award the contract(s) in the best interest of the City.
    Administrative service contract(s) may be subject to grant/loan award and release of funds by the funding agency.
    THE CITY OF GRACEVILLE SUPPORTS “EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT, FAIR HOUSING, AND PROVIDING HANDICAP ACCESS”.
