Frequently Asked Questions

Do the cover page, table of contents, or questions addendum count towards the 16-page limit?

No, these do not count towards the page limit.

Is there a particular format that is required for the quote submissions?

At this time, there is not a specific format that is required.

Yes, the proposal should not be password protected. The quote should be a different document with the password set as stipulated in the RFP document.

Is there a specific order of pages for submissions to follow?

No, page order does not matter, as long as everything is included.

Are there resources for small or minority firms?

The Indianapolis MPO enjoys partnering with a wide variety of consulting from across the country, each bringing their own perspective, experience, and expertise. Our contract process strictly follows our adopted Procurement Policy & Procedures, but in some cases State and Federal statutes have clear preferences for local and minority-owned firms.

The federal process can be intimidating - especially for newer, smaller firms - but there are plenty of ways to learn how we work and get your foot in the door. Here are some tips to get a running start:

  • Follow us on Twitter.
  • Like us on Facebook.
  • Sign up for notifications when agendas are posted.
  • Sign up for the teMPO newsletter to stay informed.
  • Check out our calendar to see what meetings are coming up, attend the meetings, and introduce yourself to IMPO management while you’re there.
  • Review our annual Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) to see what projects we’ve budgeted for the year.
  • Reach out to IMPO management for an in-person meeting to learn about upcoming opportunities before each RFP is released.
  • Sign up for our Vendor list to receive all of our RFPs and other bidding opportunities
  • Respond directly to IMPO project managers whenever you see an interesting procurement opportunity.
  • Attend pre-bid meetings with IMPO project managers, held prior to RFP release on any planning project larger than $150,000. This is a great opportunity to meet with other firms that may be interested in the project who are looking for partners.
  • If eligible, register as a Disadvantaged Owned Business Enterprise (DBE) with the State of Indiana / Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). Also, if you’re eligible and interested in working with the City of Indianapolis, register as a Minority, Women, Veteran, and/or Disabled Owned Business (XBE) with them too.
  • Register your entity to become a federal funding recipient on SAM.gov and receive a Unique Identification Number (UEI), allowing you to bid on contracts and apply for federal assistance. This is a requirement for all vendors who receive federal funding.
  • Complete an Indianapolis Marion County vendor profile.
  • View the required forms submitted with each RFP including insurance requirements, reference requirements, and other submission packet materials.
