Working with the MPO
The MPO sometimes hires experts in their fields to help out with studies and reports, and in making recommendations for how to achieve our regional transportation vision. The MPO typically issues a request for qualifications (RFQ) for services at the beginning of each calendar year, but periodically additional RFQs will be issued as needs arise.

The Indianapolis MPO will be conducting intersection safety studies in 2019. This will include the updating of existing studies and the completing of intersection studies that have not previously been done. These studies will be used by LPAs to apply for Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds to reduce crashes at these intersections. Deadlines for questions and final submission are within the revised RFQ, and will be strictly adhered to.
Freight Model Development
One or more contracts will be issued for professional services and technical assistance related to Freight Model Development. The MPO plans to develop a new freight model that will replace the Quick Response freight methodology currently in use, integration of that Freight model into the current Travel Demand Model and full calibration. The MPO is soliciting consultants with specialized experience and services to submit qualifications to provide an On-Call list of qualified consultants from which the MPO can select qualified consultants. The duration of this On-Call list will be thirty-six (36) months from the effective date of the contract with selected consultants. Deadlines for questions and final submission are within the RFQ, and will be strictly adhered to.
