Bid Title: Single Space Parking Meters
Category: Parking
Status: Closed

The Morgantown Parking Authority (MPA) is seeking Request for Proposals (RFP) from qualified vendors for the purpose of engaging in a full-service single-space parking meter system that allows patrons to make payment by coin with the option of a reloadable smartcard to be used by the Morgantown Parking Authority. All local, state and federal laws must be adhered to by the selected Vendor. The installation must be scheduled to allow for continuous, revenue-collecting operations of the Authority. The contract will be awarded to a single vendor.

The Authority will determine which Proposal provides the most favorable system in the most cost-effective manner. The Proposal should be thorough, comprehensive, detailed, and specific in regard to the issues involved in the RFP. The Proposal should show a clear understanding of virtually all issues involved with providing single-space parking meter coin payment services with the option of a reloadable smartcard and appropriately address all of the objectives as stated in this RFP.

This RFP requests proposals from qualified vendors to provide equipment and services to operate, maintain, and audit a single-space parking meter payment system (software and hardware). This RFP’s scope of work covers up to 525 spaces, depending on vendor recommendation and actual meters needed with spares. Note that bidders are also required to provide in their response to this RFP a cost schedule for the potential expansion of such single-space parking meters (beyond the 525 spaces) if the Morgantown Parking Authority chooses to expand either incrementally or on a City-wide basis.

The RFP does not obligate the MPA to complete the selection and contract award process. The MPA reserves the right to accept or reject all proposals; request additional information from any or all Proposers to assist the MPA in its evaluation process; and amend or withdraw this RFP before the announcement of the selected firm and award the proposed services in whole or in part, to one or more firms. In the case of an amendment to the RFP, all Proposers will be provided with a copy of any such amendments. If you find discrepancies or omissions in this RFP or if the intended meaning of any part of this RFP is unclear or in doubt, send a written request, via email, for clarification or interpretation to Dana McKenzie, , the subject line of the email should include the following: “SSM-RFP.”
