2017-27 RFP – Dawson Creek Flood Mitigation Planning

Tender awarded to Ebbwater Consulting for the bid price of $140,300 (plus taxes). Thank you to those who submitted a bid.

The City of Dawson Creek invites proposals from qualified professionals or firms to undertake flood mitigation planning for the City.

The City of Dawson Creek has experienced significant storm events in the last ten years that have caused considerable flood damage to municipal infrastructure and commercial and private properties. Due to changing climate, it is expected that flood events will be exacerbated in the coming years and it is important for local governments to understand what the impacts of future floods will be. To assist with these efforts, the Province of British Columbia, through Emergency Management BC, has provided the City with a grant for flood risk assessments, flood mapping and/or flood mitigation planning.

While the final scope of work will be further defined with the successful firm, based on the scope of the grant, the successful proponent will develop realistic and sustainable mitigation solutions by clearly outlining the plan’s objectives, key activities, expected outputs, timelines and roles and responsibilities. The Consultant will explore and recommend policies, bylaws, standards, and guidelines for use by the City in managing the floodplain as well as necessary infrastructure options to provide for public safety and protection of property. The mitigation plan will help the City develop shovel-ready structural mitigation projects.                            

All contract documents are available through BC Bid. The Proponent is solely responsible for ensuring any addenda are downloaded, reviewed, and included in their proposal. Proposals must be submitted in accordance with the RFP documents and will be accepted up to 2:00 p.m. (local time), June 30, 2017.
