Request for Qualifications/proposals

Solicitation

The Town of Winter Park is soliciting proposals for a qualified engineering firm to be engaged on a continuing contractual basis as an additional reviewing engineer for development projects where a conflict of interest exists with the Town Contracted Engineer.

  1. Review construction plans for conformance with Town Engineering Standards and Specifications for Design and Construction and other applicable rules and regulations. 
  2. Review cost estimates for proposed development to insure adequate surety will be secured by the Town for public improvements.
  3. Perform site inspections as required to insure public improvements are installed in conformance with approved construction plans.

1.   A brief summary of the firm’s qualifications.

2.   Name and phone number of the person designated to answer questions about the qualification statement.
