Request for Proposals

Electoral Area “A” Official Community Plan Bylaw Review and Update


The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) is requesting submission of proposals from consultant teams with proven experience in rural land use planning and community sustainability for the preparation of the Electoral Area “A” Official Community Plan (OCP) review and update.

This document outlines the overall scope of consultant services, sets out the basic requirements for the proposal document and provides the evaluation criteria to be used as a basis for awarding the OCP review and update assignment.

This document also outlines a general process for the review of the existing Electoral Area “A” OCP and engagement of the community in establishing future policy direction. Several concepts and ideas on how this may be achieved are presented; however, suggestions and other ideas on achieving the outcome are also welcome.

There are several sections to this project that will require specific expertise. If a consultant team does not have the expertise on a particular component, it is recommended that the consultant partner with others that do have the level of expertise.

The challenges of completing a rural land use plan review are often significantly different than for more smaller geographic and urban areas. One purpose of this RFP is to solicit ideas on how to overcome the obstacles of reviewing an OCP for a large area interspersed with small settlements.

Other documentation for this RFP may be obtained by request as attachments to this RFP document to assist in the preparation of Proposals.
