PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Fallon County Commission, Baker, Montana, is in need of a company or individual to review their county road data and update the Fallon County Road Map Plat Book and associated records. The Fallon County Commission is accepting proposals in response to this Request For Proposal (RFP) in order to find a qualified source to provide this service. The company or individual will be responsible for researching and determining public and private roads within Fallon County, indexing road records, updating paper maps and developing a digital mapping and database system for the updated road system.   

The project deliverables are:

  • A current County Road Map book in paper and digital format
  • Existing records indexed to correspond with the County Road Map book
  • Digital and paper copies of maps and databases that are easily accessible

An assessment of the current road situation is provided in FALLON COUNTY ROAD STUDY – FINAL REPORT dated March 10, 2022.  The report provides detail into the background and scope of the project.

Three options are listed in said report however the bidders are not limited to these options. The Commission is open to other bidder suggestions or recommendations provided the project deliverables are assured.

The bidder is only responsible for determining road status and not responsible for correcting previous errors or omissions.

The objective of this RFP is to locate a source that will provide the best overall final product to Fallon County. While price is a significant factor, other criteria such as project experience and technical ability will form the basis of our award decision.
