Procurement Assistance

GBB’s procurement experience includes:

  • Preparing Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) and Requests for Proposals (RFP), including contracts and/or contract provisions working with legal counsel, for various services and facilities;
  • Evaluating vendor responses;
  • Recommending a preferred vendor or ownership financing strategy;
  • Negotiating contracts;
  • Assisting with bond offerings;
  • Developing test protocols and review criteria; and
  • Monitoring construction, performance testing, and operations.

GBB has assisted many communities in procuring services and facilities that yielded increased efficiency, reduced and stabilized costs and/or enhanced revenues, and substantially elevated waste diversion through reuse and recycling.  Some of GBB’s recent procurements of collection transport, processing, and/or disposal services are among the most comprehensive and far reaching of any U.S. communities and are expected to provide millions of dollars in cost reductions and significant increase in recycling rates compared to their prior systems and programs:

  • City of Fort Wayne, IN;
  • City of Fort Worth, TX;
  • City of Santa Monica, CA;
  • City of Baton Rouge, LA;
  • Southeastern Oakland County Resource Recovery Authority, MI;
  • Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, TN;
  • City of Portland, ME; and
  • City of Pontiac, MI

Procurements are not without challenge, and they require extensive planning, intense focus, and a tireless effort with the many stakeholders involved. As a change agent, with a deep understanding of the waste management and recycling industry, GBB has been able to help our clients to navigate the procurement obstacles and advance into successful implementation.
