North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority
Request for Proposals (RFP)
For Engineering Services
For Combined Sewer Overflow Alternatives Study

The North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority (the "Authority") is soliciting request for proposals from a Professional Engineering Firm, licensed to practice in the State of New Jersey, to provide Engineering services for a Combined Sewer Overflow ("CSO") Alternatives Study as required by the Authority's CSO permits through a fair and open process in accordance with the N.J.S.A. 19:44A-20. l et seq., and federal procurement requirements.

The Authority shall retain all of its rights and interest in any and all documents and property both hard copy and digital furnished by the Authority to the consultant for the purpose of assisting the consultant in the performance of this contract. All such items shall be returned immediately to the Authority at the expiration or termination of the contract or completion of any related services, pursuant thereto, whichever comes first. None of the documents and/or property shall, without the written consent of the Authority, be disclosed to others or used by the consultant or permitted by the consultant to be used by their patties at any time except in the performance of the resulting contract. Ownership of all data, materials and documentation originated and prepared for the Authority pursuant to this contract shall belong exclusively to the Authority. All data, reports, computerized information, programs and materials related to this project shall be delivered to and become the property of the Authority upon completion of the project. The consultant shall not have the right to use, sell, or disclose the total of the interim or final work products, or make available to third parties, without the prior written consent of the Authority.

Professional Engineering Firm Selection. The selected proposer will be the prime consultant if a contract is awarded and shall be responsible, in total, for all work of any sub-consultant. All sub-consultants, if any, must be listed in the proposal. The Authority reserves the right to approve all sub-consultants.

The Consultant shall be responsible to Authority for the acts and omissions of all sub­-consultants or agents and of persons directly or indirectly employed by such sub-­consultants, and for the acts and omissions of persons employed directly by the Consultant. Further, nothing contained within this document or any contract documents created as a result of any contract awards derived from this RFP shall create any contractual relationships between any sub-consultant and Authority

Completeness of Submission. Selection and award will be based on the proposer's submission and other items outlined in this RFP. Submitted responses may not include references to information located elsewhere, such as Internet websites or libraries, unless specifically requested. Information or materials presented by proposers outside the formal response or subsequent discussion may not be considered.

Opportunity for Discussion and/or Oral Presentation. After receipt of all proposals and prior to the determination of the award, the Authority may initiate discussions with one or more proposers should clarification be necessary. Proposers may also be required to make an oral presentation to clarify their RFP response or to further define their offer. In either case, proposers should be prepared to send qualified personnel to the Authority to discuss technical and contractual aspects of the proposal. Oral presentations, if requested, shall be at the proposer's expense.

Evaluation and Contract Award. The Authority will evaluate the Proposal packages and identify the top three firms who in the Authority opinion have submitted a Proposal package that best represents the level of experience, management plan, personnel, cost, approach and understanding that the Authority desires. The Authority may contact each of the top three firms for additional questions or clarifications before selecting the top qualifying firm. No work shall begin until a contract is signed by all parties and is in place.


The intent of this request for proposals contained herein is to establish clarity regarding the requirements of both parties to the statements resulting from this Request for Proposals (RFP).
