Grayson County Freight Mobility Plan, Phase 2

The Sherman-Denison Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Grayson County, Texas, is advertising for SEALED PROPOSALS for the professional services to develop the Grayson County Freight Mobility Plan, Phase 2.

Copies of the REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) are available at the Sherman-Denison MPO Office, 100 W. Houston St., Suite G1, Sherman, Texas, or can be found by clicking HERE.

The MPO will accept proposals until 2:00 P.M. (CST), November 13, 2018, at which time the proposals will be publicly opened and acknowledged.  The Sherman-Denison MPO reserves the right to accept or reject any and all proposals, and to award the contract based on negotiations under LGC 262.

No addenda have been issued at this time.

Responses to questions regarding the RFP can be found below:

Question No. Date Received Question/Comment Response
1 11/5/2018 Is there a particular format or level of detail required for the cost proposal? “2.3 Consultants should ensure that the work described herein is included in their proposed work program, but other tasks may be included if the consultant believes they are appropriate and justified.”  Other than this guidance, there is no additional requirements for format or level of detail.
2 11/5/2018 Will the contract be issued lump sum, time and material or cost plus fixed fee?  Article III in the Agreement for Professional Services (Attachment A) states that the work will be paid monthly based upon a percentage of work completed, which is typical of a lump sum (firm fixed price) contract; however, the Article goes on to state that the MPO may require an itemized statement of reimbursable costs incurred to verify the accuracy of the invoice, which is consistent with cost reimbursable type contract.  Will the resulting contract be issued lump sum, time and material or cost plus fixed fee? The contract will be lump sum.  The statement on reimbursable expenses is in case the consultant desires to break out travel expenses, printing and copying expenses or other types of related expenses separately in which case an itemized statement would be needed.
