The City plans to award a contract for these services to the best-qualified firm. Each firm will be considered

and ranked by a Selection Committee based upon the criteria listed herein. The City will then enter into

negotiations with the top-ranked firm. The negotiations will be to establish a detailed scope of services and

total cost for services. Should the top-ranked firm and the City of Peoria not be able to reach an agreement,

the City will terminate negotiations with that firm and open negotiations with the second ranked firm.

This process does not obligate the City to award a contract, or pay any cost incurred in the preparation of the

firms responding to this request. The City reserves the right to accept or reject any or all statements received

as a result of this request. All information submitted in response to this request will become the property of

the City.

Please be aware that it is the City's policy to not compensate for any time or expenses incurred during the

selection and negotiation processes.



The City of Peoria is requesting Proposals from qualified firms to assist the City in collecting, processing, and

updating the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for City streets. The goal of this project is to inventory the

street, rate the pavement condition, and update the City’s GIS-based data management system used in the

planning and prioritization of maintenance and repairs. The City of Peoria’s Engineering Division will accept

sealed proposals submitted to the Office of the City Engineer, 3505 N Dries Lane, Peoria, Illinois, until 11:00

AM Tuesday, February 7, 2023 for establishing a contract with a qualified firm.

Time is of the essence and any Statement of Interest and Qualifications received after the announced time and

Interest and Qualifications.




The project consists of collecting and processing condition data on streets to update the City’s street condition

database including a pavement condition index for each street.

2023 PCI Update Pre-Submittal Meeting Q and A

Q: Does the GIS layer have a predefined format?

A: We probably have an existing schema and will confirm with GIS person.

Additional Comments: There will be a predefined format and to match the road segments provided by

the City.

Q: I know the data has been collected on a 3 year cycle. Can you tell us who collected the data


A: Andrea recalled DTS was who did it last.

Additional Comments:

2020 PCI Update was performed by Transmap

2017 PCI Update was performed by DTS

2014 PCI Update was performed by Applied Technologies

Q: Regarding bid alternates section D. Can you go into detail of the specifics on what LiDAR data you are

looking to detect?

A: For cost effectiveness we collect data now for use on future projects. In the past it was an option to

get that data as part of the PCI Run..

Q: Is the data intended for engineering design projects or for asset/mapping grade LiDAR?

A: Asset/Mapping grade

Q: Regarding signs, what type of info do you want? E.g., location, type, retro reflectivity. Regarding

pavement marking and symbols, are you looking for overall conditions for those as well?

A: Collecting assets. We will talk more about how we want to determine condition, if it will be up front

or if it will be discussed with selected team.

Additional comment: This alternate will be removed from the RFP

Q: Regarding section 2.4 Defining Project Schedule, I do not believe result can be done in 4 months.

Should I submit if I don’t believe I can meet that schedule?

A: It depends on others’ ability to meet schedule. Please give an overview of why you need a longer

schedule, choice will be made based on schedule and quality received.

Additional Comments: The intend of the schedule is to have the PCI rating by July 1st not all of the

alternates and/or additional reports. The new deadline will be February 7, 2023 at 11:00am

Q: Regarding previous PCI survey, was that a manual survey or other data collecting equipment?

A: It was not manual; it was done using data collecting equipment.

Q: Regarding sidewalks, are you looking for a price per mile? Can you provide an estimation of the

sidewalk mileage?

A: We can get an approximation of the miles of sidewalk.

Additional Comments: Approximately 742 miles as of sidewalk

Q: what would you hope to learn about sidewalks? Condition, planimetry, rating system, ADA ramps and

locations (where they are and where they are not), etc.

A: We are currently testing different methods of data collection to determine conditions of sidewalks.

Most important are conditions and ADA compliance (including sidewalks and ramps).

Additional Comments: The city would like to see the sidewalk alternate cost for just getting location and

GIS shape files and another for the cost of getting sidewalk condition

Q: due date for bid is next Tuesday, can that be pushed?

A: We will push the bid date a week further.

Additional Comments: The submittal date will be postponed to Tuesday February 7, 2023 at 11:00am

Q: Regarding paving examples and representative condition ratings, do you need pictures of distresses?

A: yes, we would like pictures to outline defects.

Q: Is underlying distress data deliverable as well?

A: We use decision optimization technology (DOT); PCI are uploaded to that and that helps us look at

the streets either by council district or plans for other projects. We want the distress data.

Q: Have you uploaded the PCI data into a decision tool?

A: We have uploaded all previous data into software.

Q: Would you be able to specify whether PCI scores were done based off a sampling approach or

performed as a comprehensive survey of each segments area? If based off sampling, do you have

locations of sampling units?

A: We will look into this and see what we have.

Additional Comments: Please Follow ASTM standards for sampling requirements.

Q: Do you want a collection of raw data delivered on a drive or cloud? This includes pictures, videos, and

GIS data.

A: Yes, that would be useful to have. We will look into how it would need to be delivered.

Additional comments: The raw data can be Delivered in external hard drive

Q: You had mentioned a lane miles total, do you have a center line miles total?

A: Yes, we can get that to you.

Additional Comments: Approximately 470 centerline miles

Questions by e-mail

Q. Provide any information that would be available like overall cost of previous contract, who the

previous vendor was and project deliverables

A. The previous contract was performed by Transmap. The contract was to run the PCI for multiple

communities in the area. The contract was with the Tri-County Planning Commission, and it was paid

through a grant. The City only paid for the 20% match required by the grant. The deliverables were very

similar to the deliverables in the current RFP. The major difference is that the Paver reports are no

longer required.

Q. Can the City supply the centerline mileage broken down by functional classification?

A. The approximate breakdown of centerline miles by classification:

Collector – 16 miles

Freeway – 4 miles

Highway – 1.5 miles

Local – 382 miles

Major Arterial – 40 miles

Minor Arterial – 25 miles
