• CRCOG-NHMP 2019-2024-RFP

      The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) intends to hire a consultant to provide services to undertake and complete an update to the 2014-2019 Capitol Region Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan Update. Funding for this project is provided by the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP), Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) through a sub-grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program. Funding is also provided through a matching grant from the UConn’s Connecticut Institute for Resiliency and Climate Adaption (CIRCA). Additional project support will be provided by CRCOG and municipal staff. The consultant will be utilized to provide technical services to CRCOG for the preparation, completion, submittal, and approval by FEMA of an updated Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan for the Capitol Region. CRCOG will procure consultant services in accordance with the established policy of CRCOG and requirements of the DEMHS terms and conditions  of the grant award (see Subgrant Contract). CRCOG is soliciting responses from qualified and experienced firms or teams to assist.  The NHMP is one of the region’s core planning documents and is updated regularly. CRCOG intends to finalize this next NHMP Update effort by mid-2019.  Respondents should have experience preparing multi-jurisdictional NHMPs and be intimately familiar with federal guidance and regulations regarding the planning process and NHMP.   Respondents to the RFP will enter a competitive process in which they will be reviewed and rated, possibly followed by short-listing and interviews, prior to final consultant selection.
