Preliminary Engineering for Adeline Street Transportation Improvements

Due Date:

Dear Proposer:

The City of Berkeley is soliciting proposals from qualified firms interested in providing planning, public engagement, environmental clearance, and preliminary engineering services for the Adeline Street Transportation Improvements project. As a Request for Proposal (RFP) this is not an invitation to bid and although price is very important, other factors will be taken into consideration.

The project scope, content of proposal, and vendor selection process are summarized in the RFP (attached). Proposals must be received no later than 2:00 pm, on Thursday, August 25, 2022. All responses should be sent via email to and have “Specification No. 22-11526-C - PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING FOR ADELINE STREET TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT” clearly indicated in the subject line of the email. Please submit one (1) PDF of the technical proposal. Corresponding pricing proposal shall be submitted as a separate document. Electronic signatures are permitted. Email attachments are limited to a maximum of 10 MB in total. Larger attachments can be provided via links within the proposal PDF.

Proposals will not be accepted after the date and time stated above. Incomplete proposal or proposals that do not conform to the requirements specified herein will not be considered. Issuance of the RFP does not obligate the City to award a contract, nor is the City liable for any costs incurred by the proposer in the preparation and submittal of proposals for the subject work. The City retains the right to award all or parts of this contract to several bidders, to not select any bidders, and/or to re-solicit proposals. The act of submitting a proposal is a declaration that the proposer has read the RFP and understands all the requirements and conditions.

An online pre-proposal meeting is tentatively scheduled. It is the vendor’s responsibility to check this site and to ensure that they have the necessary equipment and internet and/or phone access necessary to successfully attend the meeting.
