Request For Qualifications


Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce

The City of Seattle, Seattle City Light Department is seeking Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from consultants with expertise in rural tourism, economic development, special events creation and education among other skills that would enable them to perform a feasibility study for the utility's Skagit Tour Program.

The utility has conducted the tours since the mid-1920's. Their purpose was to gain public support for the efforts of Seattle City Light as it developed the hydroelectric potential of the Skagit River. Available during the summer months, the tour content features the development of the three dams and the role of electrical power in modern society. City Light is interested in expanding the content and perhaps the timing of the tours. City Light would like to explore adding more environmental content, taking advantage of the abundant fish, wildlife and natural plant life adjacent to the river. It would like ideas on partnering with the National Park Service and other institutions operating in the area and how it might incorporate the tours into the strategic communications strategies of the utility. City Light would also like to explore new options for the many facilities located near the dams such as housing, cookhouse, school, museum and general store.

The fees for the contract will be negotiated, but the anticipated contract amount is $25,000.

Copies of the Request for Statement of Qualifications and other additional information may be obtained from Felix de Mello, telephone number 206.684.3878, e-mail: . The Statement of Qualifications must be delivered by 5:00 pm on November 22, 2000 to the address below:
