The City of Durham, on behalf of the Durham-Chapel Hill Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is soliciting project qualifications from professional FIRMS interested in being considered to support the Rapid Policy Assessment Tool (RPAT) application for the Triangle Region, North Carolina.
RPAT is a strategic planning policy assessment tool that evaluates the effects of smart growth policies on travel demand. Essentially, the tool evaluates regional scenarios based on changes in the built environment, travel demand, transportation supply and transportation policies being considered. A RPAT model was already developed and validated for the region. The RPAT application support may include, but not limited to, performing RPAT runs, evaluating a series of performance metrics resulting from development scenarios: travel impacts, environmental and energy impacts, community impacts, financial and economic impacts, location impacts, connected vehicle technology impact for the near future and automated vehicle impacts for the long-range plan.
Affirmative responses should provide a recommended approach and schedule for accomplishing the scope of work and should be accompanied by the following documentation:
