Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2024

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission requests Expressions of Interest, Statements of Qualifications, and Proposed Professional Cost Rates and Fees from professional engineering, landscape architects, and environmental consulting firms to evaluate sites for Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI). The scope of work for which Consultant services are sought includes the following:

  • Provide technical support to UVLSRPC staff and the Partners Committee in all aspects of GSI assessment, implementation, maintenance, and development planning;
  • Design rapid evaluation, including GIS assessment, for Sites on GSI feasibility and cost, to be conducted by UVLSRPC staff and planning partners. Targeted GSI strategies include the following: rain garden or biorientation basin; bioswale; constructed or gravel wetland; permeable surfaces; riparian and phyto buffers; infiltration chambers or basin; filter strip; perforated pip; wet pond; slope stabilization; tree filter pit; and enhanced trench; 
  • Develop methods for the grouping of Sites for cost of design efficiencies and multi-town cooperation; 
  • Prepare a minimum of ten shovel-ready designs for selected sites, including site visits with local staff and maintenance expectation plan;
  • Assist in QAPP development for items described above; and 
  • Attend a minimum of two CoP events, including a presentation on a relevant topic of GSI

Please review the full RFQ details and Full Project Overview and Tasks

Contact Olivia Uyizeye at or 603-448-1680 with any questions regarding this RFQ.

Question and Answer

  • Does the Proposed Professional Cost Rates and Fees refer to the candidates’ standard rates or total project cost estimate? Standard rates are accepted.
  • Should the proposal include a detailed scope of work? This is not required but welcome to be included.
  • Is there a standard UVLSRPC contract that should be considered in our response? This holds no additional detail relevant to the RFQ.
  • Is a New Hampshire Professional Engineering License required for this work? This is not required.

  • IS UVLSRPC expecting technical specifications and bid documents for the ten project sites advanced to shovel-ready design as part of this effort? No bid documents are required. For the ten projects we are looking for conceptuals, including advice on solutions, cost estimates, and maintenance requirements and estimates.

  • Is it correct to infer that there is not yet a framework built for rapid evaluation of potential sites, but that UVLSRPC would like to create one (mirroring the work that has been done in Vermont) through this effort? Yes this is correct. And we will want to mirror the VT stormwater master plan process as much as possible within NH data constraints and our project budget.

  • Would UVLSRPC consider extending the submission date? Unfortunately we are unable to extend at this time.
