Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Consultant Services to Conduct a Comprehensive Routing Study for the Naugatuck River Greenway from Thomaston to Torrington, Connecticut

The Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) in cooperation with the Northwest Hills Council of Governments (NHCOG) is seeking consultant services to perform planning activities related to the development of trail sections of the Naugatuck River Greenway (NRG) Trail. The NRG is a planned multi-use trail along the Naugatuck River, extending from Torrington to Derby, following the route of the Naugatuck River. The NRG, once completed, will pass through eleven communities and extend about 44 miles. The corridor has been officially designated as a greenway by the CT Greenways Council and the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). The entire greenway trail is identified as a trail of statewide significance in the Connecticut Recreational Trails Plan, and it was designated as one of 101 America’s Great Outdoors projects in 2011 by the U.S. Department of Interior.

This RFQ is being issued to solicit responses from qualified and experienced firms interested in conducting a comprehensive routing study for an approximately 10.9 mile section of the NRG multiuse trail.

Questions and Answers (updated 3/1):

Q: Is it anticipated that CTDOT will have any role in the administration or oversight of the routing study?
A: There is not expected to be any involvement by DOT in the administration or oversight of the comprehensive routing study.  All planning work should be compatible with potential future state transportation funding for design or construction.
Q: Does the TOD grant include any federal funding component? Does NVCOG anticipate seeking/utilizing federal funds for any aspect of this study?
A: The Responsible Growth and Transit-Oriented Development Grant was funded through the Responsible Growth Incentive Fund (RGIF) program using state bonds. Federal funds are not being used for this study, but any plans should be compatible with potential future federal funding for design or construction.
Q: The RFQ stipulates a ten percent set aside for “DBE or SBE firms.” As these are two separate and distinct certification categories and, when it comes to a variety of potential sub consultant firms, not mutually inclusive, it is requested that NVCOG please specify which list is applicable to this solicitation.  
A: 10% DBE commitment is required.
