REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL/QUALIFICATIONS

Disaster Recovery Home Buy-out Program

County of Brown

August 18, 2010

This is a request for proposal/qualifications to provide full appraisal services for a Disaster Recovery Home Buyout Grant for County of Brown, Indiana for researching and appraising approximately seventy-eight properties that were destroyed in the 2008 Flood.

In order to be considered, the proposal must be received at the Office of Kenna Consulting & Management Group, Inc. 6321 S. East Street, Indianapolis, IN  46227 before 12:00 PM on August 31, 2010. 

Please label your sealed envelope "Proposal for Appraisal Services".

The contract will be awarded to the most reasonable, responsible and responsive offeror whose

proposal is within the competitive range and determined to be the most advantageous to the County of Brown.

A. SCOPE OF SERVICES:  1. Appraisals should be completed using standard appraisal form.  2. Basis of appraisal:  Appraisals shall be performed based on a "pre-flood"/"pre-damage" condition in establishing the Fair Market Value of each property.  3. The Market Value is based on Current Market Value.  This should be done using comparable structures/land acquired during a reasonable sales period (normal time frame used in doing an appraisal)  The County Commissioners have determined that if the property was not located in a floodplain prior to the 2008 flood then non-floodplain comparative properties shall be used.  4. The Comparable property should be as close as possible to the type, style and condition (NOTE:  Ignoring the flood damage).  If a home appears to have used above code, high end materials, try to use similar properties as comparables.  Also try to stay within the same community or similar community in the case of rural or smaller communities.  5. We use pre-flood value to assure a fair and equitable value of the property.  This is the basis we work from to determine adequate compensation.  6. We request that the appraisers not take into consideration the number of foreclosures within the community when determining the fair market value, as these have negatively impacted the market since the grant process started.  7. Appraisers shall be responsible for contacting each property owner and scheduling an appointment to meet with them.  8. Appraisals shall remain the property of Brown County, IDHS, IHCDA and FEMA.  However the property owners will have the right to review the appraisals.

B.  PROPOSAL CONTENTS:  Interested firms must contact Angie Pappano for a full Request Packet.  The proposal must include sufficient information to provide for adequate evaluation.  At a minimum, the submitted proposal must include a detailed description of the scope of work to be provided, including the specific approach and contents of the services that will be involved.

C.  CONTRACT TYPE:  The contract shall be a fixed fee contract per appraisal indicating the maximum total dollar amount chargeable to the project. 

D.  AWARD OF CONTRACT:  After the close of review and evaluation, the County of Brown will award the contract to the selected offeror and will promptly notify unsuccessful candidates.

E.  CIVIL RIGHTS REQUIREMENTS:  Attention of bidders is particularly called to the following federal civil rights requirements:  1.  Executive order 11246.  2.  "Section 3" compliance in the provision of training Employment and Business Opportunities.  3.  Certification of Non-segregated Facilities (over $10,000).  4.  OMB Circular A-102 Attachment O.  5.  Title VI of Civil Rights Act of 1964.  6.  Conflict of Interest.  7.  OMB Circular A-102 Attachment C.

G. QUESTIONS REGARDING THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL SHOULD BE ADDRESSED TO:  Angie Pappano, Vice President, Kenna Consulting & Management Group, Inc., 6321 S. East Street, Indianapolis, IN  46227, PHONE: 317-781-1651, EMAIL:  apappano@kennaconsulting.us
