Samples of Work
The City of Oceanside Feasibility Study is provided as an example of the technical evaluation services HF&H conducted in advance of a procurement process for collection, processing, and disposal services. The Oceanside Organics Feasibility Study involved identification of nearly 30 strategies for reducing organics disposal costs and involved assessment of 14 options including 4 upstream strategies, 4 different organics collection strategies, and 6 organics processing options. HF&H is currently managing an RFP process for Oceanside, which includes procurement of processing and disposal services.
The Kern County Diversion Services Request for Statements of Interest is included as a work sample. It was prepared by HF&H to request non-binding Statements of Interest (SOI) to provide waste diversion services by providing processes, technologies, and/or facilities for processing materials that have the potential to reduce landfill disposal, as defined under SB 1383 and related regulations. The specific requested services included, but were not limited to: permitting, developing, designing, installing, providing operational training and/or other assistance, and possibly operations at Kern County owned landfills and/or transfer stations to receive and process waste materials for recovery. The SOI was the first phase of the procurement process. HF&H is presently managing the second phase that involves feasibility study contracts with the three shortlisted proposers.
HF&H managed the City of Sunnyvale’s most recent competitive procurement process for the SMaRT Station’s facility operator in 2013/2014. The RFP for that process is included as a work sample. HF&H is currently assisting the City of Sunnyvale with a sole source negotiations process with the facility operator that was selected in the 2013/2014 procurement process. The draft agreement is in progress and not yet publicly available.
In 2019 and 2020, HF&H managed the SBWMA’s disposal procurement process, with support from SCS and HDR. As a work sample, we’ve included the evaluation report from that process to illustrate how we summarized the proposal evaluation and cost information. The SBWMA also has on file the RFP materials HF&H prepared for the disposal procurement process including the RFP for Solid Waste Disposal and Other Material Handling Services (August 10, 2018), the subsequent Phase 2 RFP (November 1, 2019), and the final disposal agreement negotiated with Republic Services, which was based on the then-current disposal agreement.
