Jefferson County Department of Community Development (“DCD”) solicits interest from qualified consulting firms who wish to be considered for assessing the methodology and approach used to ensure that the cap on development for Jefferson County’s two Master Planned Resorts is not exceeded, and that the data or “count” is readily available for stakeholders, including the general public, developers and county staff, with the overall objective of improving transparency and compliance with Jefferson County Code. The successful proposal will result in a process that is more easily updated, maintained, and accurate. Qualified consulting firms are encouraged to submit Statements of Qualifications (“SOQ”). Jefferson County will be selecting firms registered with the Municipal Research Service Center of Washington or those who respond to this Request for Proposal (“RFP”) as published in the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce or the Jefferson County/Port Townsend Leader, the county’s newspaper of record. Persons submitting proposals are called Consultants or Proposers, and must have professional and business licenses required by the State of Washington and a demonstrable expertise in the disciplines necessary to accomplish the services.
