2 M/WBE HUB Program Report January March 2014 Integrated Pipeline Project The Integrated Pipeline (IPL) is a regional partnership for water supply between Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) and the City of Water Utilities (DWU). This vital project exhibits a commitment by two of the region s largest water providers to meet water demands for an increasing population in the /Fort Worth metroplex. When completed, the IPL will extend approximately 150 miles from Lake Palestine to Lake Benbrook interconnecting Cedar Creek and Richland Chambers reservoirs. Raw water delivery capabilities for both agencies will increase by a combined 350 million gallons per day (MGD), providing operational flexibility, energy efficiency, and construction cost savings to the more than 5 million existing residents. Fair Opportunity Purchasing and Contracting Policy TRWD and DWU are committed to promoting the utilization of Minority/Women Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBE) and Historically Underutilized Business (HUB). In a concerted effort, the IPL Fair Opportunity Purchasing and Contracting (FOPC) Policy was developed to encourage procurement of goods, equipment and services through M/WBE HUB Contractors and vendors. The FOPC policy establishes the following primary program goals: A 25% good faith effort for all phases of the project; Develop opportunities for M/WBE HUB companies; Create networking opportunities to encourage prime and sub-contractors teaming agreements; Sponsor or identify training programs or events to increase firm capabilities and services; Assist eligible firms in obtaining certifications through identified registration authorities; Coordinate efforts between TRWD and DWU, as well as local chambers, advocacy groups, local trade organizations and other small business enterprise assistance agencies in order to increase local business utilization. Public Outreach Program A list of programs currently in effect with a brief description is provided below: Consultant Liaison Program On a monthly basis, a representative of the Public Outreach staff contacts M/WBE firms currently under contract for the IPL Project. The primary objective of the Liaison Program is to ensure that M/WBE firms are having a good experience with the IPL. The Liaison Team provides assistance or training for these subconsultants. Another focus of the Liaison Program is to provide a connection to the IPL Project team and to encourage identification of needs that sub-contractors may have in regard to the IPL. Networking Program Networking events are planned to create opportunities for M/WBE HUB firms to maximize potential teaming opportunities. Similar events sponsored by local agencies are identified and attended to increase IPL opportunities within the local community. Public Outreach Pre-Screening Program As the IPL Project team prepares for construction, the pre-screening program identifies sub-contractors that have specific capabilities and/or services required for large pipeline and pump station construction. The information for this will be available for potential prime contractors in order to better match project needs with firm capabilities to further encourage M/WBE HUB firm utilization.
