The City of Durham, on behalf of the Durham-Chapel Hill Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is soliciting project qualifications from professional FIRMS interested in being considered to support the Rapid Policy Assessment Tool (RPAT) application for the Triangle Region, North Carolina.
RPAT is a strategic planning policy assessment tool that evaluates the effects of smart growth policies on travel demand. Essentially, the tool evaluates regional scenarios based on changes in the built environment, travel demand, transportation supply and transportation policies being considered. A RPAT model was already developed and validated for the region. The RPAT application support may include, but not limited to, performing RPAT runs, evaluating a series of performance metrics resulting from development scenarios: travel impacts, environmental and energy impacts, community impacts, financial and economic impacts, location impacts, connected vehicle technology impact for the near future and automated vehicle impacts for the long-range plan.
Affirmative responses should provide a recommended approach and schedule for accomplishing the scope of work and should be accompanied by the following documentation:

The City of Durham periodically publishes a request for proposals to complete transportation related services for the DCHC MPO. The requests are usually a Request for Information (RFI), Request for Qualifications (RFQ) or Request for Proposal (RFP) depending on the nature and cost of the needed services. These requests will be posted on this Web page.
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), in partnership with the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro MPO is inviting qualified consulting firms or persons to submit Project Proposals to conduct an Implementation Study for a regional bicycle connection from Raleigh in Wake County to the Park Center site at Research Triangle Park in Durham County via a separated greenway type facility generally following the I-40 corridor; and a Feasibility Study for a regional bicycle facility between the Park Center site and US 15-501 (Fordham Boulevard) in Chapel Hill; which will also address bicycle/pedestrian facility gaps along NC 54 in Durham County. The Implementation Study will build upon feasibility study work completed by Wake County in December 2017.
The purpose of this study is to prepare a work product that will ultimately lay out a long-term vision for a multi-modal transportation network in the study area, with a detailed implementation strategy that includes short-term and mid-term recommendations to aid with the implementation of the ultimate vision for the proposed bikeway. The purpose of this bikeway is to serve commuters between Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Research Triangle Park and Morrisville; and connect with existing and planned extensions of a facility in the City and County of Durham, which ultimately connects to US 15-501 in the Town of Chapel Hill. The work in this RFP should deliver a functional design for the segment between Raleigh and the Park Center site at Research Triangle Park; and a concept level plan for the segment between the Park Center site at Research Triangle Park and US 15-501 (Fordham Boulevard) in Chapel Hill. The work should deliver a proposed implementation plan and planning level cost estimates by segment.
