DC Water is soliciting Statement of Qualification for SOQ#20-PR-DET-40
Lead Pipe Replacement Assistance Program (LPRAP)Approved Contractor List
As of October 1, 2019, District of Columbia residential property owners may apply for financial assistance through the Lead Pipe Replacement Assistance Program (LPRAP) to cover at least 50% of the actual costs incurred by the property owner (up to $2,500) to replace the lead service line on their private property when the service line in public space is non-lead, whether in whole or in part. Lower-income property owners may apply for funding to cover 80% or 100% of the actual costs incurred by the property owner based on their household income, subject to the Reasonable Cap for Replacement Costs established by the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE). DC Water estimates that approximately 12,000 District property owners may qualify for this program. In accordance with Section 6019b of D.C. Law 22-0241, “Lead Water Service Line Replacement and Disclosure Amendment Act of 2018,” effective March 13, 2019, DC Water is authorized to establish a “list of approved contractors for residential property owners to use for the replacement of the portion of a lead water service line on private property.” Once DC Water publishes the list, residential property owners will be required to use a LPRAP Approved Contractor to receive assistance from the District to pay for the work.
Therefore, DC Water is establishing a LPRAP Approved Contractor List that will be published on DC Water’s website. The LPRAP Approved Contractor List will be updated annually, if not sooner. Starting Fall 2020, all District residential property owners applying for LPRAP assistance will be required to choose a contractor from this list as part of their eligibility.
The purpose of this SOQ is to identify licensed contractors with skills, knowledge and abilities to be included on the LPRAP Approved Contractor List and to participate in the LPRAP program.
DC water will receive Statements of Qualifications until 5:00 p.m., local standard time on June 18, 2020.
A Pre-Submission Conference call will be conducted on May 27, 2020.
The conference will be conducted remotely by teleconference that will begin at 11:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m. All attendees are required to make reservations for this teleconference by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name, title and email address (s), by 3:00 p.m. on May 26, 2020. All attendees who make reservations will be provided a conference call number and ID and link to Microsoft Teams to access the conference through. It is suggested that Proposers view the teleconference on a sufficiently size monitor to ensure legibility of information presented.
