Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into professional services contracts with HDR Engineering, Inc. in the amount of up to $500,000.00 for the Roadway Improvements - Multimodal Corridor Planning and Design 2021 project.

The intent of this project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, general engineering and transportation planning services to evaluate select corridors throughout the city for new designs that are able to better address the mobility demands of the larger transportation system. Tasks may require traffic analysis, bikeway planning, transit considerations, consideration of pedestrian infrastructure, parking analysis, placemaking, and other services as needed to complete a study. For some corridors, assistance may be needed with planning a pilot implementation or other form of tactical urbanism to promote a new design before the full design is adopted.

The Department of Public Service, Office of Support Services, solicited Requests for Proposals for the Roadway Improvements - Multimodal Corridor Planning and Design 2021 contract. The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services and Bonfire web sites from April 1, 2021, to May 4, 2021. The
City received three (3) responses. All proposals were deemed responsive and were fully evaluated when the Evaluation Committee met on May 11, 2021. The responding firms were:

Company Name City/State Majority/MBE/MBR/F1/AS1/PHC
The Mannik & Smith Group, Inc. Columbus, OH Majority
Michael Baker International, Inc. Columbus, OH Majority
HDR Engineering Columbus, OH Majority

HDR Engineering, Inc. received the highest score by the evaluation committee and will be awarded the Roadway Improvements - Multimodal Corridor Planning and Design 2021 contract.
