BCEO CONSULTANT SELECTION POLICY

The Butler County Engineer's Office utilizes a qualifications-based selection policy. The policy is based on Section 153.65-.73 of the Ohio Revised Code (O.R.C.), which generally requires all public entities to use a qualifications-based selection process when hiring design professionals. Firms are required to show evidence of financial responsibility when contracting with public entities. The BCEO's qualification-based policy is similar to A Guide for Public Authorities published by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Ohio (ACEC) and is as follows:

For services estimated to be greater than $50,000, the following 3 steps will occur:

1) The BCEO will solicit letters of interest from firms by publicly announcing the need for professional services for a specific project. It will be posted on this page under LETTERS OF INTEREST;

2) The Engineer will evaluate all interested firms based on predetermined criteria. An evaluation sheet will be used for every project to determine the most qualified firm for the project;

3) Once the most highly qualified firm has been identified, the BCEO will open contract negotiations with that firm using a detailed scope of services for the project, and determine an appropriate fee for those services.

For services estimated to be less than $50,000, the BCEO will use a small project selection process in which an expedited "direct selection" process will be utilized. A provision enacted in 2011 (O.R.C. §153.71 (A)) allows a public authority to select a single design professional or firm from among those that have submitted a current statement of qualifications within the immediately preceding year, "based on the public authority's determination that the selected design professional or firm is the most qualified to provide the required professional design services." The following 4 steps will be used on the small project selection process:

1) Every year in the fall, the BCEO will solicit letters of interest from firms by publicly announcing a "Request for Updated Qualifications" for the following year;

2) Once your firm's packet is received, it will be evaluated by several BCEO engineers. Should your firm prequalify, you will receive a letter indicating so. Your firm's prequalification is then good for only the following calendar year;

3) When it is necessary for the BCEO to obtain consulting services for a project or general services, the BCEO will evaluate all firms prequalified for the specific category listed below:

Roadway Engineering
Structural Engineering
Traffic Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering
Environmental Engineering
Surveying
Stormwater Services

4) As per O.R.C. §153.69, once the most highly qualified firm has been identified, the BCEO will open contract negotiations with that firm using a detailed scope of services for the project, and determine an appropriate fee for those services.
