Title
AUTHORIZING the Chief Executive Officer to award and execute a 15-month firm fixed price Contract No. AE322940011372 (RFP No. AE11372) to JMDiaz, Inc. in the amount of $2,340,084.08 for Architectural and Engineering (A&E) services to complete the I-710/SR-91 PSR-PDS.

Issue
ISSUE
The Project Study Report-Project Development Support (PSR-PDS) is the Project Initiation Document (PID) selected for the I-710/SR-91 Interchange. The PSR-PDS will provide an opportunity for Metro, Caltrans, and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments (GCCOG) to attain consensus on the purpose and need, scope, and schedule of the project. The PSR-PDS will also be used to program the support cost necessary to complete the studies and work needed during the Project Approval/Environmental Document (PA/ED) which is the next phase in the project development process. Once Board approval is received, the Contract will be executed and a Notice to Proceed (NTP) will be issued to JMDiaz, Inc. for the I-710/SR-91 PSR-PDS.

However, the feasibility of the proposed improvements had not been examined in detail for the five Hot Spots. Pursuant to the findings of the Initial Corridor Study, Measure R allocated $590 million for freeway and non-freeway improvement projects for the I-605 Corridor "Hot Spots" Interchanges within the Gateway Cities/Southeast portion of Los Angeles County.
