On May 21, 2013 the Public Works Department released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for City Engineer and associated services.  In response to the RFP, staff received proposals from three (3) highly qualified firms.  Staff reviewed the proposals and RKA Consulting Group (RKA), Walnut, CA was determined to be the most responsive to the City’s RFP needs.


On June 18, 2013, the City Council awarded a contract to RKA in the amount of $50,000.  The contract included a one-year term with the option to extend two (2) additional years.  The current contract expires June 30, 2016 without the option to extend an additional year.



RKA has provided excellent City Engineer and associated services on-site at City Hall for the last 3-years.  RKA has extensive knowledge in regard to the City’s various Capital Improvement Projects and currently provides the engineering services for existing, ongoing City projects.  Staff is proposing to continue its services with RKA to maintain consistency and the timely delivery of these projects.  Staff prepared a single-source justification that has been reviewed and approved by the City’s Finance Department.


Therefore, it is staff’s recommendation to the City Council to approve a new contract with RKA in the amount of $100,000 for the continuation of City Engineer Services.  The contract will be for one-year with the option to extend two (2) additional years as needed.
