Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes a non-competitive service contract with AECOM Technical Services, Inc. for continuing design services of the E-W Bus Rapid Transit project. Currently there are about $4.6 million remaining in the 2020 (12777) and 2021 (12462) capital budgets to fund this design contract for Bus Rapid Transit. The estimated cost of the consultant's 60% and 90% engineering and design services are approximately $3,900,000.

Adoption of this Resolution will not commit the City of Madison to additional expenditures, but represents the next step towards future City capital and operating expenses associated with Bus Rapid Transit implementation. Future final design services will be funded subject to budget appropriation via the 2022 capital budget approval process.
