Title
AUTHORIZING the Chief Executive Officer to award and execute a 48-month firm fixed price Contract No. AE333410011375 (RFP No. AE11375), to Parsons Transportation Group Inc. in the amount of $20,697,227.00 for Architectural and Engineering services to complete the I-605/I-5 PA/ED.

Issue
ISSUE
The I-605/I-5 Interchange Project Study Report-Project Development Support (PSR-PDS), completed in July 2014, provided a key opportunity for Metro, Caltrans and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments (GCCOG) to achieve consensus on the purpose and need, scope, and schedule of the project. The PSR-PDS was also used to program the support cost necessary to complete the studies and work needed during the PA/ED, which is the next phase in the project development process. During the PA/ED phase, more detailed studies including traffic analysis and an environmental assessment will be prepared to further refine the information in the PSR-PDS and develop the Project Report and Environmental Document. Once Board approval is received the contract will be executed and a Notice to Proceed (NTP) will be issued to Parsons for the I-605/I-5 PA/ED.
