Announcement  Info  :   **PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE SUBMITTAL DATE NOTED IN THIS NOTICE TO PROFESSIONAL CONSULTANTS IS DUE TO A SYSTEM REQUIREMENT AND IS NOT THE ACTUAL SUBMITTAL DATE FOR THIS SOLICITATION. THE ACTUAL SUBMITTAL DATE IS TO BE DETERMINED (TDB) AND WILL BE ISSUED VIA ADDENDUM. The County Mayor, Miami-Dade County (County), pursuant to Section 287.055, Florida Statutes, Sections 2-8.1 and 2-10.4 of the County Code, Implementing Order 3-34, and Administrative Order (A.O.) 3-39, announces that professional engineering services will be required for the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) for design services for wastewater collection and transmission systems related to Consent Decree projects. Proposers are advised that in accordance with language set forth in ISD Project Number E13-WASD-01R, no firms that are either a prime or subconsultant under the E13-WASD-01R contract award may participate on this solicitation. Upon the Board of County Commissioners awarding E13-WASD-01R, an Addendum for this NTPC will be issued stating the proposal submission deadline. WASD is the primary provider of water and wastewater services to Miami-Dade County serving a population of almost 2.3 million, making it among the largest water/wastewater utilities in the United States. At the May 21, 2013, Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Board approved the Consent Decree (CD) negotiated with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). The CD outlines the activities to be undertaken to reduce Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s), exceedances of treated effluent limitations, and to ensure proper management, operation and maintenance practices. All CD capital improvement projects must be completed on or before fifteen (15) years from the date of lodging (June 6, 2013) of the CD with the United States District Court. Many program requirements are required to be delivered within a certain time after the CD’s “effective date”, which is defined as the date the Court enters the CD or six (6) months after the date of lodging, whichever occurs first. WASD recognizes the need for design services of the wastewater collection and transmission system as part of the capital improvement program. The Consultant shall be familiar with and comply with the requirements of the CD, which is available for review at WASD’s website at: http://www.miamidade.gov/water/wastewater-improvement-projects.asp. The services required by the Consultant will include, but are not limited to: preliminary design, design, permitting and bid services, and design services during construction for upgrades to the wastewater collection and transmission systems (WCTS). The Consultant shall ensure that the design of the capital improvements are technically, economically, and functionally consistent and are implemented in a manner that meets the specific deadlines and milestones of the CD and the requirements of the Clean Water Act, WASD’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permits, FDEP regulations, and any additional applicable regulatory requirements. The scope of services will include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Develop the Basis of Design Reports (BODR) for the CD capital program of the WCTS, while taking into account all project alternatives using life cycle cost analysis and identifying and recommending mitigation options to deal with future sea level rise and storm surge. 2. Conduct and/or coordinate underground utility and sub-surface investigations in support of the BODRs. 3. Based on the Department’s approved BODR and delivery method (i.e. Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build), the Consultant will prepare the required bid documents. 4. Assist WASD in evaluating procurement methods for equipment. 5. Attain all applicable permits as necessary depending on the delivery method selected. 6. Assist WASD in the bid process, including responding to request for information, reviewing bids and making recommendation for award. 7. Provide design services during construction including but not limited to; reviewing and responding to all contractor submittals, review and respond to all contractor claims, review and respond to requests for information, and review of final certification documents provided by the contractor(s). Services may also include providing wastewater hydraulic computer modeling series required by the CD, including model updates and calibration, as required in support of the Pump Station Improvement Program using WASD Infoworks CS Model. This requires the Consultant to have license(s) of Infoworks CS Hydraulic Software, (latest version) and be proficient with its use on large wastewater transmission and gravity networks. One (1) qualified consultant will be retained with one (1) non-exclusive Professional Services Agreement (PSA) with a maximum compensation of forty four million dollars ($44,000,000), inclusive of contingencies for an effective term of five (5) years with one (1) five (5) year option to renew. Note that no minimum amount of work or compensation is guaranteed under this agreement. Furthermore, the five (5) year option to renew is based solely on the approval of the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee. Experience and Qualifications: 1. Prime Consultants must be experienced in all phases of wastewater engineering, including design, permitting, construction, and operation and maintenance of wastewater collection and transmission systems. 2. Prime Consultants should have experience with design and commissioning of wastewater collection and transmission system upgrades of similar scope and complexity within the last ten (10) years from the date of this solicitation. The Prime Consultants shall provide a list of members of the proposed Design Team, identifying the overall Design Manager(s), and the team leaders for key design specialties (civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation) and the specific role each one of them will perform. 3. Prime Consultants shall have designed and constructed new or upgraded wastewater collection pipeline and pump stations that include small diameter pipelines (4 to 24-inch diameter), local pump stations (50 to 2000 gallons per minute), and successfully designed and constructed at least one (1) major pipeline at a minimum 54-inch diameter or larger and a regional pump station of a minimum 40 million gallons per day or larger with 100 horse power or more, in which the Prime Consultant has served as the designer within the past ten (10) years from the date of solicitation. 4. For projects which the Prime Consultant has served as the design consultant, the Prime Consultant shall provide the name and contact information for a Utility Executive with the Utility they served as the design consultant who can confirm their role. The descriptions shall include the client (i.e., municipality or agency), key project staff, the project name, a summary of the work performed, the contract amount, the schedule (to include start and completion dates), the specific role of the Prime firm, the achievements (e.g., projects delivered on schedule, dollars saved, innovative designs implemented, new technology utilized), and a client reference and contact information. 5. The Subconsultants shall provide a description of at least one (1) program or project that is relevant to this scope of work within the past ten (10) years from the date of this solicitation specific to their proposed responsibilities.
