Biggest Little City

2014 SOQ Rankings


The City of Reno has various infrastructure and facility projects that are programmed over the next few years. Projects may include street rehabilitation, storm drainage, parks, facility remodels and new construction, sanitary sewer rehabilitation, lift station rehabilitation, effluent reuse, asbestos abatement and others.

The purpose of the SOQ process was to establish a ranked list of consultants interested in providing engineering and consultant services for the City of Reno for categories which we anticipate projects in the next few years.

SOQs were also requested for various categories which do not have potential projects identified at this time but may arise in the future. Those lists are unranked and SOQs will be evaluated at the time that the project is identified.

In general, projects could be assigned in several different ways:

  1. An individual project may be assigned to the top eligible firm on the ranked list for the service category,
  2. The three top eligible firms from a ranked list could be invited for short interviews to determine which firm’s qualifications best match project needs,
  3. Three eligible firms from an unranked list may be evaluated and/or invited for short, interviews to determine which firm’s qualifications best match the project needs, or
  4. Reno may issue an RFP and solicit responses for individual projects from all interested firms nationwide, independent of the SOQ list.

The deadline to submit SOQs for the ranked categories has passed; therefore we are no longer accepting submittals in the ranked categories.  We anticipate requesting new, ranked proposals late Fall 2015.  Please watch our website for updates.

We are still accepting submittals for unranked categories. Please email your completed unranked forms to You will receive a response email after your forms have been reviewed.  Please allow 7-10 business days.

Please check this website often for information regarding future requests for SOQs.
