Request for Proposals - Project: LEPC Hazardous Materials Commercial Trucking Planning and Tabletop Exercise

The Mid-America LEPC is an eight-county, bistate planning district, encompassing Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte and Ray counties in Missouri. The LEPC maintains an emergency preparedness plan that is reviewed and updated annually. Following the last update, the LEPC identified a gap in more comprehensive information about hazardous materials shipped via commercial trucks.

A Commodity Flow Study was completed for seven counties in the Northeastern Region of Kansas in 2010 (which includes Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties) to gather information about the type and quantities of hazardous materials transported via the region’s highways. This information was reviewed and generically updated in the 2015 Plan update usingdata available from the Kansas and Missouri State Departments of Transportation.
Missing from the 2010 Commodity Flow Study and 2015 LEPC Plan update is a comprehensive list of commercial truck owners in the Kansas City metropolitan area and direct information from the commercial trucking industry about hazardous materials transported through the region. Historically, commercial truck owners have been underrepresented on the LEPC.

The LEPC desires to initiate a two-phase planning project to increase the region’s preparednessfor hazardous materials incidents involving transportation. Phase One involves conducting research and interviews with shippers, receivers, and carriers to determine type and quantity of hazardous materials by time, mode, and route, origin/destination, then update the LEPC Plan where appropriate with this information. The second phase of the project involves conducting a table top exercise with first responders, risk management program (RMP) facilities and commercial truck owners (identified in Phase I) on emergency response to a transportation hazardous materials incident.

To be eligible for consideration, proposals must be received by MARC no later than 5 p.m. prevailing local time on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Request for Proposals - Regional Green Infrastructure Plan, Phase Two

The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) is requesting proposals (RFP) from firms to refine and build upon the Kansas City Phase 1 Green Infrastructure (GI) Framework developed in 2016. The GI planning approach can be used to enhance transportation infrastructure sensitivity to terrestrial and aquatic habitats, and increase the effectiveness of mitigation of impacts. It may also serve to enhance other public or private development practices in service of economic competitiveness, social equity public health and environmental quality.

The 2016 GI Framework includes two primary elements, an Atlas and Playbook. As each is further refined, they will constitute a regional GI plan to facilitate integrated ecosystem-based, landscape-scale planning, mitigation and restoration. This RFP seeks to identify a consultant or consultant team to refine and illustrate the Playbook to facilitate local implementation of GI practices in different land use conditions around the Kansas City region.

The work will be subject to MARC and Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) procurement processes. Submittals must be received at the MARC office, either physically or via electronic mail, by 4 p.m. prevailing local time, Friday May 5, 2017.

Addendum to Request for Proposals - Regional Green Infrastructure Plan, Phase Two 
MARC added Attachment F, a Special Attachment from the Kansas Department of Transportation to the request for proposals. The due date for submissions remains unchanged, with submissions due to MARC at 4 P.M. on Friday May 5, 2017.
