Request for Proposals Independent Technical Consultant for the MEW Superfund Study Area [For a formatted version of this RFP, contact email@example.com]The Center for Public Environmental Oversight (CPEO), a project of the Pacific Studies Center, is seeking proposals for a consultant to provide independent technical assistance for the Middlefield-Ellis-Whisman (MEW) Superfund Study Area in Mountain View, California. Sponsored by a U.S. EPA Technical Assistance Grant (TAG), this is expected to be a 2-year, $25,000 project.
The MEW Study Area comprises facilities formerly owned or operated by 17 companies, including three Superfund sites: Fairchild Semiconductor Corp., Intel Corp., and Raytheon. There is extensive groundwater contamination with trichloroethylene, but much of the property has been redeveloped with high-tech office buildings.
In its application to EPA, CPEO identified two principal tasks:1) Review of the Final Supplemental Feasibility Study for Vapor Intrusion, the accompanying Final Supplemental Remedial Investigation for Vapor Intrusion, and any associated workplans or implementation documents
2) Review of the forthcoming Site-Wide Supplemental Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study.
CPEO has established a volunteer Community Advisory Board (CAB) to assist in the selection and oversight of the independent technical consultant. The consultant will be expected to meet with the CAB as well as attend public meetings on the MEW Area cleanup.
Please submit a proposal, five pages or less, to CPEO by April 2, 2007. The proposal should document the applicant's education, expertise, and familiarity with the site. Consultants currently working for responsible parties at the MEW Site or adjacent contaminated properties (Moffett Federal Airfield, GTE Government Systems) are not eligible.
The proposal will be judged on the following criteria (over):Technical Expertise and Experience (15 points). To what degree is the applicant familiar with emerging technologies for the remediation of volatile organic compounds? Is the applicant familiar with approaches for investigating, mitigating, and remediating vapor intrusion?
Knowledge of the Regulatory Framework (15 points). Is the applicant familiar with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act? Does the applicant know how involved communities can influence remedial decisions?
Familiarity with Site (15 points). Is the applicant familiar with the MEW area, its contamination, and cleanup progress to date?
Community Experience (15 points). Has the applicant worked successfully with community organizations before? Please supply references.
Clarity of Communications (15 points). How well does the applicant communicate complex technical issues to the public, both orally and in writing?
Flexibility of Schedule (15 points). Is the applicant available to attend community meetings on weeknights?
Rates and Expenses (10 points). CPEO expects to pay the consultant no more than $100/hour, including expenses. Is the applicant prepared to contract at that rate?
