Request for Proposal for Regional Comprehensive Plan

Request for Proposal for Regional Comprehensive Plan

Texoma Council of Governments (TCOG) is soliciting proposals for the creation of a regional comprehensive plan.

TCOG is a voluntary association of local governments in Cooke, Fannin, and Grayson Counties that works directly with citizens and local jurisdictions to improve and advance economic vitality and quality of life in Texoma. In collaboration with our public and private sector partners, TCOG delivers various programs and services designed to support the health, welfare, and future of our citizens, our communities, and the region as a whole. To this end, TCOG employees work hand-in-hand with elected officials and community leaders to develop sustainable and economically viable community and regional development solutions.

Proposals must be received on or before August 6, 2019. No proposals will be accepted after the deadline. Submissions can be emailed, faxed, mailed or hand-delivered during regular business hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm. Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered. TCOG reserves the right to accept or reject any or all proposals received. Address proposals to:

Molly Guard, GIS & Planning Program Manager
Texoma Council of Governments

Fax: 903-813-3511

Questions concerning this RFP may be directed via email at mguard@texoma.cog.tx.us or via direct phone (903) 813-3527.

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to assist cities and counties to not only plan for future growth, but to gain a deeper understanding of maximizing tax revenue and minimizing service cost and infrastructure liabilities.

Project: This RFP is for a regional comprehensive plan that includes Cooke, Fannin and Grayson counties, in addition to TCOG’s member cities located in the Texoma area. The plan should include fiscal modeling at the city and county level, plus a general comprehensive plan for participating cities that includes some degree of individualization.

Elements may include demographics, land use, housing/neighborhood, mobility infrastructure and economic development, plus an implementation plan. This is a voluntary project, thus we expect participation from 1-2 counties and approximately 8-12 cities of varying sizes.

All proposal submissions must include:

  • Proposer identification & qualifications
    1. Name, address and contact information
    2. General experience
  • Scope of work
  • Cost proposal
  • Any other necessary information

Proposer must comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and may not be on a local, state or federal Consolidated List of Debarred, Suspended and Ineligible Contractors and Grantees.
