NOTICE TO CONSULTANTS FOR

Coordinated Public Transit Human Services Transportation Plan (CPT-HSTP) Update

Okanogan County, serving as the lead agency for the Okanogan County Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO), solicits interest from consulting firms with expertise in developing CPT-HSTPs. Consultants will be considered for the following project.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The work to be performed by the CONSULTANT consists of an update to the Okanogan County CPT-HSTP. The latest version of this plan was prepared in 2014. It can be viewed at the following website: https://okanogantransit.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/FINAL-2014-HSTP-1.pdf

The CPT-HSTP identifies transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes, provides strategies for meeting those local needs, prioritizes transportation services for funding and implementation, and identifies strategies and preferred alternatives for improving transportation coordination between providers. The plan identifies each community’s unmet needs and develops transportation alternatives based on this information. Outreach efforts and developing partnerships with the region’s stakeholders are vital to developing an effective and robust CPT-HSTP. Additionally, all Human Services transportation projects must be included in the CPT-HSTP to be eligible for Washington State Department of Transportation or Federal Transit Administration funding.

The full request for qualifications may be downloaded for this project from the official County website at:

Sealed bids will be received by the Okanogan Board of County Commissioners at 123 5th Ave. N. Suite 150, Okanogan, Washington until 3:45 P.M. on June 26, 2018. The bids received will then be opened and publicly read:

The Okanogan County Fairgrounds Well Project consists of constructing a groundwater well with an 8 inch casing and installing a 15 horsepower pump owned by the fairgrounds capable of delivering 150 GPM at 55 psi in accordance with the certificate of water right permit number G4-23526P. The project will include installation of necessary electrical systems.  Electrical system will include underground installation of a two inch electrical conduit from the power source to the new well.
