RFQ for Contract 20-C-00015 -The City of Tampa Wastewater
Department desires to obtain Design-Build Services to complete the
rehabilitation of the Bayshore Pumping Station located at the
intersection of Bayshore Boulevard and Mason St.
Services will be provided under a contract with negotiated fixed fees
for assessment of rehabilitation needs, selection and evaluation of
design alternatives, final design, permitting, project management,
overhead, profit, and a guaranteed maximum price with appropriate
surety bonds. Services will also include, but not limited to,
engineering investigations, site planning, cost estimating,
advertising and administration of subcontracts, start-up, O&M
manuals, training, and all related work required for a complete
project.
Background: The Bayshore pumping station was originally placed
into service in 1955. Although the station has undergone
rehabilitations and improvements since the original construction,
several of the station’s components have reached the end of their
useful life. The station currently uses (2) pumps. These pumps are
controlled by variable frequency drives and are both rated at 5,300
GPM (200 hp). The station discharges through a force main
consisting of 24-inch pipe that connects with the 48-inch force main
that serves the San Carlos pumping station. This force main
discharges directly to the Howard F. Curren Wastewater Treatment
Plant.
The station rehabilitation shall include, but is not limited to the
following: replacement of all pumps, motors, pump discharge valves,
electrical and control components, flow meter, other equipment
needed to restore station reliability. Pump selection and pumping
strategy shall provide station capacity to meet peak wet weather
flows of 6,000 GPM (8.6 MGD), estimated future flows, and the
current daily flow requirements. The pump selection and pumping
strategy shall be designed to maximize energy efficiency using
variable speed control. The station is located in the median of
Bayshore Boulevard and is adjacent to residential areas. Bayshore
Boulevard runs along the shore line of Tampa Bay and is a
signature attraction for the City of Tampa. Specialized design and
construction approaches shall be developed to minimize and
mitigate disruption to the area during the rehabilitation and ensure
that wastewater flows are maintained through all phases of
construction. The design shall also blend the station with the
architectural features along the roadway while meeting the
regulatory requirements associated with the station’s location.
The scope of the design-build contract will include:
1. Assessment of equipment replacement needs
2. Development and analysis of alternatives for pumping
strategy, equipment selection and layout, construction sequencing,
methods to minimize disruption during construction, and associated
cost estimates
3. Complete design of selected alternative
4. Construction of selected alternative
5. Public Relationship activities needed to maintain a positive
response to the project from affected neighborhoods
Estimated Total Project Cost: $3,500,000.
Schedule: Design FY20 & FY21; Construction FY22.

Points are determined as follows (Requires Form 50-GFE):
A. A maximum of twenty (20) rating points may be awarded when the Proposer is a City of Tampa
Certified WMBE firm deemed underutilized within the Industry category established by the RFP.
B. A maximum of fifteen (15) rating points may be awarded when the Proposer is a City of Tampa
certified SLBE with meaningful participation by City certified WMBE/SLBE sub-
contractors/consultants.
C. One to Fifteen (1-15) rating points may be awarded when the Proposer is not a City of Tampa
certified WMBE/SLBE prime contractor but utilizes either Underutilized WMBE and/or SLBE
certified firm(s) as sub-contractors/consultants and assigned to perform meaningful segments of
the contractual services detailed herein and documented on the enclosed MBD Form 10-20.
D. A maximum of seven (7) “discretionary” rating points may be awarded when the Proposer
provides WMBE/SLBE participation from an external agency recognized by the City. Discretionary
points may be awarded for ancillary participation (see definition). The point values for ancillary
participation may be subordinate to weighted values outlined in categories A, B and C above.
NOTE: *WMBE participation is narrowly-tailored (per policy) to target underutilization of affected
groups in specific trade/industry categories. Any WMBE/SLBE achievement that was not
designated on MBD Form 70 is considered ancillary. Ancillary participation may be counted with
overall participation and credited to your rating points when underutilization criteria are met.
The maximum number of points available for WMBE and/or SLBE participation will not exceed a total
of twenty (20) points.
Equal Business Opportunity Evaluation Weighted Points: CCNA Proposal Guidelines
Under CCNA solicitations, proposers must submit to preconstruction Good Faith Efforts (GFE)
requirements covering the inclusion of City of Tampa certified WMBE, SLBE firms. Such inclusion shall be
clearly addressed and documented utilizing Forms MBD 10, 20 & 50. Proof of certification shall include
copies of current certification certificates. This applies to ALL Phase 1 preconstruction design services.
Points awarded during the shortlist selection process will be more heavily weighted predominantly on the
design side (this does not preclude identification of phase 2 projections of construction participation
which follow in the future, i.e. GMPs). In order to ensure the maximum points, a proposer must clearly
identify and quantify its planned participation. Finally, additional favorable consideration will be
granted to the firm(s) that beyond all others provide(s) the highest and most binding participation.
GMP Exhibit
Tampa’s Equal Business Opportunity Program Procedures for GMP Contracts
The City of Tampa’s Equal Business Opportunity Program (EBO) requires setting a
construction subcontract goal on each GMP under the CM /or D-Build delivery system.
Prior to the time construction subcontract goals are set, the Construction Manager (CM)
or the Design-Builder (D-B) provides information on subcontract packages planned for
the construction phase(s) and their sequencing.
(Ref: use Detailed GMP Estimate and MBD Form-80 PTW)
The CM (or D-B) participates in a meeting wherein the City will establish narrowly-
tailored project goals for SLBE and/or W/MBE subcontractor participation on the project.
(Ref: use MBD Form-70)
For each subcontracting package to be bid, the CM (or D-B) confirms with the MBD
Office, the City’s minimum contact list of available SLBE and/or W/MBE firms to be
solicited. Note: strategic, extensive outreach is the CM/DB’s responsibility (i.e. GFECP)
(Ref: use Minimum Contact List provided w/final Project EBO Determination Goal)
The CM (or D-B) documents the notification of all potential subcontractors, including the
SLBE or W/MBE firms identified above, i.e. minimum contact list of certified firms.
(Ref: use DMI 10-20 for construction phase Solicitation/Utilization outcomes)
The CM (or D-B) receives, opens, and tabulates subcontract bid results. The City,
including representatives of the managing department and the MBD Office, may be
present for the bid openings or to review the bids submitted.
(Ref: use MBD Form-50 GFECP outreach w/documentation)
The CM (or D-B) provides to the City, a tabulation of all bids received and its
determination of the lowest responsive/responsible bidder. If bids received exceed
contracted Guaranteed Maximum Price, CM (or D-B) advises City as to how they will
proceed. If re-bidding is selected, notification at least equal to the original solicitation
will occur. (Ref: Reaffirm EBO Outreach)
As all subcontracts are executed, final copies are provided to the City. Where
participation is achieved via sub-subcontractors and/or suppliers, the CM (or D-B)
provides the City and MBD with copy of executed agreement or purchase order as
documentation. (Ref: use MBD Form-40 LOIs execute “Letters-of-Intent)
During construction, monitoring activities may including but may not be limited to,
subcontractor payment reports to be submitted with pay requests, prior approval by the
MBD Office and the managing departments, of any replacement of SLBE or W/MBE
subcontractors, and a report of final amounts paid to all subcontractors.
(Ref: use #1-DMI 30 Form w/Pay Applications; #2-Prime & Subs must log into
Diversity Mgt. Compliance System to report payment activity)

The Compliance Plan with attachments is a true account of Good Faith Efforts (GFE) made to achieve the participation goals as
specified for Women/Minority Business Enterprises/Small Local Business Enterprises (WMBE/SLBE) on the referenced contract:
The WMBE/SLBE participation Goal is Met or Exceeded. See DMI Forms 10 and 20 which accurately report all
subcontractors solicited and all subcontractors to-be-utilized.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The WMBE/SLBE participation Goal is Not Achieved. The following list is an overview of the baseline GFE action
steps already performed. Furthermore, it is understood that these GFE requirements are weighted in the compliance
evaluation based on the veracity and demonstrable degree of documentation provided with the bid/proposal:
(Check applicable boxes below. Must enclose supporting documents accordingly with remarks)
(1) Solicited through reasonable and available means the interest of WMBE/SLBEs that have the capability to perform the work of the contract. The Bidder or Proposer must
solicit this interest within sufficient time to allow the WMBE/SLBEs to respond. The Bidder or Proposer must take appropriate steps to follow up initial solicitations with
interested WMBE/SLBEs. See DMI report forms for subcontractors solicited. See enclosed supplemental data on solicitation
efforts. Qualifying Remarks:
(2) Provided interested WMBE/SLBEs with adequate, specific scope information about the plans, specifications, and requirements of the contract, including addenda, in a
timely manner to assist them in responding to the requested-scope identified by bidder/proposer for the solicitation. See enclosed actual solicitations
used. Qualifying Remarks:
(3) Negotiated in good faith with interested WMBE/SLBEs that have submitted bids (e.g. adjusted quantities or scale). Documentation of negotiation must include the names,
addresses, and telephone numbers of WMBE/SLBEs that were solicited; the date of each such solicitation; a description of the information provided regarding the plans
and specifications for the work selected for subcontracting; and evidence as to why agreements could not be reached with WMBE/SLBEs to perform the work. Additional
costs involved in soliciting and using subcontractors is not a sufficient reason for a bidder/proposer’s failure to meet goals or achieve participation, as long as such costs
are reasonable. Bidders are not required to accept excessive quotes in order to meet the goal.
DMI Utilized Forms for sub-(contractor/consultant) reflect genuine negotiations This project is an RFQ/RFP in nature
and negotiations are limited to clarifications of scope/specifications and qualifications. See enclosed documentation.
Qualifying Remarks:
(4) Not rejecting WMBE/SLBEs as being unqualified without justification based on a thorough investigation of their capabilities. The WMBE/SLBEs standing within its industry,
membership in specific groups, organizations / associations and political or social affiliations are not legitimate causes for rejecting or not soliciting bids to meet the goals.
Not applicable. See attached justification for rejection of a subcontractor’s bid or proposal. Qualifying Remarks:
(5) Made scope(s) of work available to WMBE/SLBE subcontractors and suppliers; and, segmented portions of the work or material consistent with the available
WMBE/SLBE subcontractors and suppliers, so as to facilitate meeting the goal. Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of
work or trade without restriction to a pre-determined portion. See enclosed comments. Qualifying Remarks:
(6) Made good faith efforts, despite the ability or desire of Bidder/Proposer to perform the work of a contract with its own forces/organization. A Bidder/Proposer who desires
to self-perform the work of a contract must demonstrate good faith efforts if the goal has not been met. Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from
submitting bids/proposals and were solicited on work typically self-performed by the prime. Qualifying Remarks:
(7) Segmented portions of the work to be performed by WMBE/SLBEs in order to increase the likelihood that the goals will be met. This includes, where appropriate,
breaking out contract work items into economically feasible units (quantities/scale) to facilitate WMBE/SLBE participation, even when the Bidder/Proposer might otherwise
prefer to perform these work items with its own forces. Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of work or trade without
restriction to a pre-determined portion. Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from submitting bids/proposals and were
solicited on work typically self-performed by the prime. See enclosed comments. Qualifying Remarks:
(8) Made efforts to assist interested WMBE/SLBEs in obtaining bonding, lines of credit, or insurance as required by the city or contractor.
See enclosed documentation on initiatives undertaken and methods to accomplish. Qualifying Remarks:
(9) Made efforts to assist interested WMBE/SLBEs in obtaining necessary equipment, supplies, materials, or related assistance or services, including participation in an
acceptable mentor-protégé program. See enclosed documentation of initiatives and/or agreements. Qualifying Remarks:
(10) Effectively used the services of the City and other organizations that provide assistance in the recruitment and placement of WMBE/SLBEs.
See enclosed documentation. The following services were used:

Design Criteria Package
Page 3 of 8
1.3 This package is not a specification or prescriptive checklist and is not intended to replace the
professional judgment by a competent licensed professional engineer after coordination with the
end-user and stakeholders of the City of Tampa.
1.4 Additionally, nothing in this document should preclude consideration and use of emerging
technologies and commercially available products if they can be proven to result in a successful and
satisfactory design for the rehabilitation of the Bayshore Pumping Station.
2. Design Criteria
2.1 The design is based on providing facilities that will meet the needs of the Wastewater Department
to effectively and efficiently operate the Bayshore Pumping Station. These needs are based on
mission and operation requirements. The design should consider existing conditions and the
current and future needs of the department. It is imperative that the final designer and preparer of
construction documents fully understand the operational requirements, permitting, site logistics
and all related requirements to design this facility accordingly.
2.2 The Bayshore Pumping Station was placed into service in 1955. Although the station has undergone
rehabilitations and improvements since the original construction, several of the station’s
components have reached the end of their useful life. The station currently uses (2) pumps. These
pumps are controlled by variable frequency drives and are both rated at 5,300 GPM (200 hp). The
station discharges through a force main consisting of 24-inch pipe that connects with the 48-inch
force main that serves the San Carlos Pumping Station. This force main discharges directly to the
Howard F. Curren Wastewater Treatment Plant. The majority of this equipment is currently in
operable condition; however, there have been several equipment failures that have required repairs
to maintain the reliability of the pumping station. In addition, with the use of 2 pumps and critical
service that the station provides, there is a not sufficient redundancy during times when a pump is
inoperable due to equipment failures.
2.3 Design-Build services shall include, but not be limited to, demolition, replacement of all pumps,
motors, pump discharge valves, electrical and control components, flow meter, and replacement
other equipment needed to restore station reliability and provide improved operations. The Design-
Build services shall also include the installation of new equipment and improvements to increase
reliability and reduce maintenance, which could include reconfiguring the station to accommodate
the use of submersible pumps. Building additions and other improvements may also be needed to
accommodate the selected equipment and meet the regulatory requirements associated with the
station’s location.
2.4 Pump selection and pumping strategy shall provide station capacity to meet peak wet weather flows
of 6,000 gpm (8.6 MGD), estimated future flows combined wet weather flows, current average daily
flows of 900 GPM 1,200 GPM (1.3-1.8 MGD), and the minimum flow requirements of 350 GPM
RFQ: 20- C-00015
Bayshore Pumping Station Rehabilitation
Design Criteria Package
Page 4 of 8
(0.5 MGD) without excessive pump cycling. The pump selection and pumping strategy shall be
designed to maintain a constant wet well water elevation and to maximize energy efficiency using
variable speed control. The pump selection and operating strategy shall be designed so that
sufficient backup pumping capacity is provided to meet maximum wet weather flow rates in the
event that one of the primary pumps fails. The pumping equipment shall be designed to handle and
properly convey wastewater containing considerable volume of solids and rags and shall be
designed not to develop problems associated with the accumulation of rags.
2.5 The station is located in the median of Bayshore Boulevard Architectural updates and landscaping
improvements shall be included to further improve the appearance and acceptance of the station
from the adjacent properties.
2.6 Wastewater flow must be maintained throughout all phases of the construction. The station is
located adjacent to residential areas and there has been a history of complaints associated with
odors and noise related to other construction projects and the use of a bypass pumping systems.
Specialized design, construction approaches and sequencing shall be developed and utilized to
eliminate and minimize these issues. If the construction sequencing requires bypass pumping, the
bypass pumping system must include a reliable and redundant back-up pumping system and
measures must be implemented to minimize odors and associated noise. Bypass pumping systems
shall be designed to handle the same peak wet weather flow as the proposed pumping station. In
the event the primary conveyance system fails, there must be an adequately sized, redundant back-
up system capable of delivering the design peak wet weather flow. Bypass pumping systems shall
be designed with variable speed control such that the pumped bypass flows match the influent
flows. Bypass systems relying on electrical power must have sufficiently sized back-up generators or
equivalent diesel pumping equipment in case of a power outage.
2.7 The new pumping station will contain substantial electrical gear operating at 480 volts. The Design-
Build services shall include an arc flash assessment for all selected electrical equipment and
implementation of the safety measures needed to protect personnel from the potential Arc Flash
Risks.
2.8 The Design-Build Firm shall prepare and submit detailed construction plans and specifications at
60%, 90% and 100% phases. All drawings shall be produced in 3D (i.e. AutoCAD Civil 3D or Rivet as
compatible for rendering) and shall be accurately georeferenced. Drawings shall meet the current
Wastewater Department Drafting Standards.
2.9 The FIRM will provide a GMP estimate at 90% and final construction plan phases. The 90% GMP will
be used to determine small and minority business subcontracting opportunities.
