REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ) FOR DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE CITY OF MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UTILITIES DEPARTMENT, SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION (SCADA) SYSTEM

The City of Modesto (City) is requesting Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from Design-Build Entities (DBEs) for fixed-price, or progressive design-build services to replace the existing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The City of Modesto SCADA Upgrade Project is expected to be a multiyear project, which will be completed by the DBE, and possibly other consultants hired separately by the City to supplement the upgrade work. It is the desire of the City to solicit input from DBE’s through the SOQs on the pros and cons of the two alternative design-build delivery methods that will be ultimately be chosen for the RFP in the second step of this procurement.

The City uses a SCADA system to operate over 200 water, wastewater, and stormwater facilities (including groundwater wells, tanks, wastewater treatment plants, and lift stations). The SCADA system comprises computer hardware, software, and telemetry system that is critical in controlling and delivering safe drinking water supply to customers, monitoring stormwater pumping, and providing monitoring and control of the conveyance and treatment of the City’s wastewater to meet strict regulatory standards. The City’s existing SCADA system is over 20 years old and is at the end of its useful life. The existing SCADA system does not leverage current technologies, thus making this proprietary product expensive to implement, and difficult to operate and maintain.

A primary goal of the SCADA system upgrade is to improve the efficiency and operational reliability of the existing SCADA system.

If you wish to be considered for this work, please submit five (5) copies of your Statement of Qualifications by 3:00 p.m., Friday, October 18, 2019 to:

City of Modesto
Utilities Department
1010 Tenth Street, 4th Floor, Suite 4600
Modesto, CA 95354
Attention: Jesse Franco, Engineering Division Manager
Via Mail: P.O. Box 642
Modesto, CA 95353

A selection committee will evaluate all Qualifications Statements submitted; however, this RFQ does not commit the City to move forward to publish the subsequent RFP, nor to award a subsequent Agreement for Design-Build Services, to pay for any costs incurred in preparation of the qualifications statement or future proposal, or presentations of a Proposal, or to procure an agreement for services. Following the selection committee’s evaluation of the Qualifications Statements, the City will shortlist selected DBEs, and your DBE may be contacted to develop a proposal. The selection considerations for evaluating the Qualifications Statements are included in the RFQ.
