REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR CDBG-DR ENGINEERING SERVICES FOR THE CITY OF GRACEVILLE FOR A FFY 2022
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT DISASTER RECOVERY PROJECT DEO AGREEMENT #M0174

The City of Graceville hereby requests proposals from qualified individuals or firms to provide engineering services for a Florida Community Development Block Grant-DR (CDBG-DR) project in the Disaster category.

The City has been awarded Florida CDBG-DR DEO agreement #M0174 in the amount of $4,41,751, 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 $4,441,751.00 in CDBG DR funding infiltration and inflow of storm water in the City’s Sanitary Sewer System. During the events of Hurricane Michael, the increase in stormwater overwhelmed the City’s Sanitary Sewer System. In the days immediately following the storm the City experienced a 42.6% increase in effluent passing through the System which caused the City to exceed its allowable permitted inflow and treatment capacity. The excessive increase in effluent strained the already aging system. The inundation of stormwater caused pipe joints to destabilize and inflow and infiltration entering the system through the unstable joints, detached lateral piping, leaking manholes, and failing street pavement. When the stormwater overwhelmed the system the City experienced raw sewage backup and further damage to the sewer lines.
This project will make point repairs or seal 200 deficient Sanitary Sewer laterals, and line or replace 100 deficient manholes. The city identified these laterals and manholes as breaches in the system using smoke testing and CCTV review. These repairs will increase the City’s resiliency in future storm events by reducing the increase of effluent and reducing the risk of system failure.
This project will benefit 2,429 residents of the City of Graceville 1,781 of these residents are considered low and moderate income according to collected survey data. Construction will begin approximately 12 months after contract execution and be completed in approximately 12 months thereafter.
DEO Agreement number M0174 does not include any leverage funds. However, the city also includes in this RFP additional funds through Legislative Appropriation sources directly addressing inflow and infiltration scope estimated at an additional $1,200,000.
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.
Engineering Services for this project will include bidding, construction administration, and resident observation services.

Proposals will be accepted on an equal competitive basis. No bid or proposal will be accepted from individuals or firms placed on the convicted vendor list following a conviction for a public entity crime.
The evaluation criteria that will be utilized in the selection of the engineer are as follows:

  1. Knowledge of State and Federal Regulations
    governing the CDBG Program as well as other
    grant programs; 20 pts.
  2. Experience with CDBG Funded Projects; 20 pts.
  3. Experience with municipal engineering projects; 10 pts.
  4. Management and Staffing; 10 pts.
  5. Approach to Task; 20 pts.
  6. Ability to become Quickly Familiar with
    Local Conditions; 10 pts.
  7. References: All CDBG projects for last three (3)
    years for which you are responsible; 10 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. Engineering fees will be negotiated after ranking is completed utilizing the Consultants’ Competitive Negotiation Act, Florida Statute 287.055.

Negotiation will begin with the firm ranked highest based upon the final rankings.

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 ENGINEERING SERVICES, Grant Agreement number M00174”. Proposals must be received by 10:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday, September 26, 2023 at the City of Graceville City Hall, Attention: Misty D. Smith, City Clerk, 5348 Cliff Street, Graceville, Florida 32440. Proposals will be publicly opened on Tuesday, September 26, 2023 at 10:01 a.m. CST at the Graceville City Hall. You may contact Misty D. Smith or Michelle C. Watkins, City of Graceville at 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.
