Request for Applications for Standing Offer Agreements

The City is seeking experienced and qualified contractors with proven ability to perform emergency and on demand construction services related to sanitary and stormwater infrastructure.  The Services will involve repair and replacement projects, varying from small to large-scale, at various locations within the City on an “as and when” required basis. It is estimated that there could be between 5-10 projects annually that would need to be fast-tracked due to potential impact to Private and Public property and Public Health and Environmental concerns.

The Goods and Services include without limitation the supply and delivery of material, the provision of skilled labour, and equipment to provide the Goods and perform the Services and other requirements of this RFA-SOA in the City.

The required Goods and Services may include, but are not limited to:

  1. Repair or replace gravity sanitary and storm mains;
  2. Repair or replace Low Pressure System (LPS) mains, manholes and service connections;
  3. Repair or replace sanitary and storm manhole structures;
  4. Repair or replace sanitary and storm laterals / service connections from the inspection chamber to main;
  5. Flush and clear debris where sanitary or storm flows are limited and repair or replace as required;
  6. Conduct post CCTV inspection of sanitary and storm mains and laterals after repairs or replacement;

Contractors should have experience constructing and working with civil infrastructure and utilities such as but not limited to sanitary and storm infrastructure in a municipal environment.  EOCP certification would be an asset, but not required.
