The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois hereby requests qualifications from professional services consultants to provide professional services in connection with the Inter-modal Transportation Study.
Description of Project
For some time, the University has been redefining its philosophy on how people should move about the campus with an eye toward creating a safer, walk-able, and healthy campus environment. Almost 40,000 students and an additional 10,000 plus faculty and staff live and work in the campus district; their safety is an important responsibility for all three entities. Therefore, the University and the cities of Champaign and Urbana are seeking qualifications from consultants to assess existing transportation systems (including pedestrian, mass transit, motor vehicle, and bicycle modes) and make recommendations on how these systems should be organized and configured in the campus district. The recommendations on proposed transportation changes should consider prior studies and recommendations made by the Campus Area Transportation Study.
The University and the cities of Champaign and Urbana seek an independent, forthright consultant, able to make sound recommendations to the University and the cities.
Recommendations from this study will be shared with the administrative staff members and local elected officials and the Campus Area Transportation Study Technical Advisory Committee for implementation strategy.
Procurement of Inter-modal Transportation Study Consultant Services:
The selection of the inter-modal transportation study consultant firm will be based on demonstrated expertise in transportation planning. If the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign determines that additional services from the inter-modal transportation study consultant firm are desirable, the selected firm may be asked to provide a proposal for those additional services at a later date.
Part 1 Submittal: Qualification Requirements:
The University of Illinois encourages the participation of firms not currently under contract to submit proposals for providing professional services. Only those inter-modal transportation study consultant firms that meet the following qualifications will be considered for the short list selection.
