Consideration and Approval of Award for the Hazard Mitigation Plan Preparation Project
Every five years, the County prepares a "hazard mitigation plan". The planning process helps the County and local entities prepare for and mitigate the consequences of a number of different disasters which might occur within the County. If the plan is prepared to a high enough standard, it also opens up the possibility of other funding of County activities, in particular, operations grants to our Emergency Management department. Furthermore, a grant has previously been received which will pay 75% of the cost of consultants to assist in the preparation of the plan, up to $36,000 ($48,000 total cost). Accordingly, the County issued RFP No. 4291-21-001 for the "Preparation of an Archuleta County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan".
Four proposals were received and those were evaluated by a committee comprised of: the Director of Emergency Management and the Finance Director. The evaluations led to scoring and ranking of the proposals as follows:
780 Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, Inc.
760 Synergy Disaster Recovery
570 WSP USA, Inc.
530 Diligent Resolve
The highest scoring firm was Wood. The cost of their proposal is $35,998, well within the $48,000 amount provided by the grant supporting this project. That grant requires special consideration of minority businesses, women's business enterprises and labor surplus area firms, when possible. Synergy Disaster Recovery's proposal was the only one to identify themselves as qualifying for any of these considerations.
The evaluation committee is therefore recommending acceptance of the Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, Inc. proposal and award of a contract for completion of the Hazard Mitigation Plan, as described in the RFP and in Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, Inc.'s proposal.
