RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider making a finding for the method of procurement (request for qualifications) for engineering services to develop design plans and specifications for the installation of surface water lines and related household connections in the Cindy Park Colonia; authorize the Purchasing Agent to publish a notice; and adopt an order delegating evaluation authority to a selection committee.
BACKGROUND
On November 18, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed an agreement between The Texas Department of Agriculture and Nueces County Contract No. 7214085 for the Colonia Fund: Construction (CFC), in relation to the Cindy Park colonia. Under this project, surface water lines will be installed and residents will be given an opportunity to tie into the new water system, if they so wish, at no cost to them since the project is designed to assist those with low-to-moderate incomes. An engineer is required to prepare design plans and specifications for the construction bid packets and to provide construction oversight and inspection. The grant award is $500,000 and the County will match the grant funds with general administration/in-kind work in the amount of $25,000.
