FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pittsburgh, PA -- Today, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) issued a Request for Qualifications and Request for Proposals ("RFQ/RFP"), for the provision of Interim Executive Management Services. The contractor will provide Interim Executive Management Services to PWSA and will essentially serve as Executive Director for one year. As such, the contractor will oversee day to day operations as well as provide strategic vision and direction required for effective, timely, and transparent management of the PWSA.
The scope of services for the contract includes: the provision of Interim Executive Management Services; general administration and manage consulting; financial analysis; infrastructure maintenance and replacement consulting; operating and capital budget development; and miscellaneous responsibilities. The term of the contract is for 12 months, not to exceed 18 months.
Board Member and City Councilman Patrick Dowd stated “The ideal contractor will oversee day to day operations, provide strategic vision and direction required for the authority. Most importantly, they will prepare the way for a national search for the new Executive Director sometime in 2013.” The PWSA has come under recent fire form the Councilman for being without an Executive Director since December, 2010, when Michael Kenney left the organization under growing criticism.
The Authority will accept Qualification Statements as described in the official RFQ/RFP no later than March 23, 2012, by 4:00 P.M. Pittsburgh time. Qualified proponents will be identified on or before April 6, 2012 and will be invited to meet with representatives of the Authority on April 12, 2012 to obtain further clarification of the goals and objectives of the Authority. Technical Proposals and Cost Proposals are due on May 4, 2012 by 4:00 P.M. Pittsburgh time. The successful candidate firm will be announced on or before May 18, 2012, subject to review and approval of the proposals of the successful candidate by the Authority Board. If approved and terms successfully negotiated, the services provided for in the contract are to begin on July 1, 2012.
