South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization

RFPs

To assist SJTPO in advancing regional priorities as well as carrying out various federal mandates, SJTPO frequently solicits the expertise and support of qualified professional consultants. The process of soliciting this support is typically done as a Request for Proposals (RFPs).

Below are lists of upcoming RFPs, Current RFPs, and an Archive of RFPs with selected proposals.

SJTPO will also post RFPs it is partnered on with other agencies, as well as RFPs of subregions who elect to share them with SJTPO.

Interested firms are encouraged to check back periodically during the RFP response period for addenda to the RFP as well as questions and answers. Please note that for upcoming RFPs, all dates shown are best estimates and may be subject to change.

Please do not contact SJTPO for updated dates. Interested individuals or firms  may join SJTPO’s Request for Proposals (RFPs) email list via the form at the bottom of any SJTPO webpage. Those emails generally include initial announcements of any RFP available.

Interested individuals or firms may also click “Receive Updates About This RFP” to be notified when any changes or announcements are made to a specific current or upcoming RFP. Please note that doing this will not add an individual or firm  to any other ongoing notification lists. Additionally, notice of SJTPO’s RFPs are made available on the State of New Jersey Business Opportunities webpage.

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance throughout the entire consultant selection process by all parties involved. The results of the Consultant Selection Committee meetings and all material regarding the consultant selection process are considered confidential until the SJTPO Policy Board approves the selection and notice to proceed is issued.

In order to ensure open and equitable access to all information, all questions regarding a proposal or the selection process during an open solicitation must be submitted in writing to the project manager noted in the specific RFP prior to the deadline for question submission and will be answered in writing in the Questions and Answers memo posted with that RFP. All questions submitted after the question submission deadline, including any questions about the selected firm will only be answered after a selection is approved by the Policy Board.

Submitted a Proposal and Want a Debrief?

SJTPO offers debriefings with firms who submitted but were not selected. These debriefs may only be scheduled after the Policy Board approves the selected firm and the winning proposal is posted to the website. Firms interested in a debrief should review the winning proposal posted in the Archived RFPs section, below, prior to requesting a debrief. A debrief may be requested in writing to the project manager of the project in question. SJTPO will not divulge the names of other firms who submitted or any specific scoring related to any proposal. These debriefs are meant as a courtesy to offer insights for firms interested in future RFPs to better understand possible improvements in future submissions.
