Closed: Request for Proposals: Parking Citation Software
The City of Urbana seeks proposals to purchase parking citation software, equipment and a management system. The proposal should include all applicable hosting, subscription, maintenance and/or service contract fees. This procurement is open to all businesses actively engaged in the development and delivery of parking software and related items as specified in the RFP.
The City of Urbana rents parking spaces and utilizes parking meters to generate revenues that are used to maintain and construct parking facilities. Revenues from these parking services are allocated to the Motor Vehicle Parking System Fund, where the expenses of maintaining parking services are reported. Public parking facilities are provided as an enterprise activity. The amount expected to be raised in FY 17/18 is $1.46 million. Approximately 50% of the amount is collected from spaces and meters in the University campus area. The current meter rate on campus is $1.00 per hour. The City maintains over 1,400 metered spaces and over 250 parking rental spaces on-street and in municipal lots.
In 2016, the City launched its mobile payment system at its meters. MobileMeter is available in metered parking spaces throughout the City, as well as in designated MobileMeter spaces. The City also enforces and issues permits to residents living in the West Urbana Neighborhood Area (WUNA). Residents living within the area are eligible for on-street parking permits. The City issues over 1,500 permits annually.
The deadline for proposal submissions is Wednesday, January 31, 2018 by 5 PM (CST). Proposals received after this time and date will be returned unopened. Postmarks will not be accepted as proof of receipt.
