The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) is seeking proposals from qualified firms (Proposers, Contractors) for services to develop and review potential water service rate structures and options for MWDOC; work with MWDOC staff, Board of Directors and Member Agencies in discussing and evaluating those options and recommend a preferred rate structure for implementation.

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit proposals from qualified firms/consultants with a proven track record in the development of water rate structures in California which will provide the District with rate model options as well as a recommended rate plan. While satisfying future revenue requirements and meeting State law requirements, the proposed rate structures must balance revenue stability, resiliency, water use variability, conservation and equity to Member Agencies.

This RFP describes the district, the required scope of services, the contractor selection process, and the minimum information requirements for the submitted proposal. Failure to submit information in accordance with the RFP requirements and procedures may be cause for disqualification. There is no expressed or implied obligation for the District to reimburse responding firms for any expenses incurred in preparing proposals in response to this request. MWDOC reserves the right to request proposal clarifications or corrections from any firm.
