Request for Statements of Interest in Developing a Biomas Gasification Project
Sacramento Municipal Utility District
Sacramento, CA

Posted: 11/10/2014 

On October 29, 2014, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) released a Request for Statements of Interest (RSOI) in the development of a biomass gasification project for combined heat and power (CHP) application in Sacramento, California. 

SMUD is seeking an experienced project developer with a commercial technology that has a track record of successful implementation and operation.   

SMUD is targeting at least a 3-megawatt (MW) project size, using roughly 70 tons per day (about 24,000 tons per year) of clean wood waste. Larger projects may be possible. Project size is contingent on site size constraints, feedstock availability and long-term supply, truck traffic impact, agreement with site host, and other limitations. 

SMUD has identified a potential host willing to provide the site for the project and potentially offtake the waste heat, HP Hood, located in the city of Sacramento. Also, SMUD has conducted a feedstock availability assessment, which has revealed that there’s plenty of wood waste to sustain at least a 3-MW project. The site is strategically located in an area where the feedstock is abundant and accessible.  

The deadline to submit responses is November 26, 2014, at 5 p.m. PST. Please submit your responses to marco.lemes@smud.org. Interested parties can submit questions until November 10, 2014, at 5 p.m. PST to marco.lemes@smud.org. Answers will be posted on November 12, 2014 on SMUD’s Electronic Bid Solicitation System (EBSS) at www.bids.smud.org.

The solicitation documents can be found on the EBSS site. Please register with EBSS to access the solicitation documents and receive updates.

RFI NO. #14-18-15

Integrated Utility Solution
Benton PUD
Kennewick, WA

Posted: 10/08/2014 

Public Utility District No. 1 of Benton County, also referred to as ”the District”, is seeking information from vendors that provide a set of fully integrated applications that allow for a seamless flow of information between them.  Solutions should have functionality that fully addresses all of the business needs of an electric utility including:  Customer Care and Billing, Accounting, Asset Management, Work Order Management, Human Resources Management, Time & Labor, Payroll, Engineering and Operations.  In addition to the software, implementation support to include data conversion and training will be required. 

The review of the responses will be done in two parts.  We will first review each response against our functional needs and review the performance of the company in our industry, and then select a list of vendors to investigate further.  Vendors that make it to the second step of the process will be invited to provide an onsite demonstration of their proposed solution.  The demonstration will need to include functionality for every requirement outlined in the requirements section along with a technical review of the architecture that is required for the system to run; therefore vendors should anticipate a multi-day demonstration if necessary. 

RFI Overview

The requirements being reviewed as part of this RFI are parts of the software currently in use or on the District’s strategic roadmap for the following functions:

 

  • Customer Information and Utility Billing
  • Customer Web Portal
  • Mobile Capabilities
  • Prepay Services
  • Payment Kiosks
  • Bill Production and Mailing
  • Accounting/Financial Reporting
  • Document Management
  • HR/Payroll
  • Staking
  • Mapping
  • Work Order Management
  • Outage Management
  • Fleet Management
  • Maintenance Management

In addition to the software, the District requires conversion of data from our existing systems, integration with other business systems to the level currently in production, end-user and administrative training and comprehensive startup support to successfully migrate to the new system without interruption to routine business operations or degradation of service to our customers.


For your response to be considered to move on to the second step of review, you must address the core functions handled by the District’s current systems since our intention is to review your response against the systems identified above.  Any third party additions to achieve this complete functionality must be clearly identified and experience with that combination of applications noted.  The District may consider vendor teaming to provide a complete solution.


The District requires the functionality be provided in a tightly integrated and robust system with all required functions provided from the vendors’ standard package. Custom applications or interfaces to our systems such as meter reading, IVR, OMS and banking/payment functions will be considered, but only with appropriate assurances of performances provided by the vendor and references from active customers using that combination of components.


Our preference is to keep current business practices where they make sense, but adapt to new capabilities provided by an enterprise system.  Any system that requires us to change business practices to accommodate software limitations will be viewed as a drawback to that solution. 


You may also include in your response optional modules for our review that may be valuable to our business.  These should be identified as “optional” and their prices may be listed separately.

The response can only include modules and functionality currently in commercial use, but we welcome your additional comments on future developments in your technology road map with estimates of live dates.  We are looking to review both a system and a vendor that will help the District grow and adapt over the next ten years.

For questions, please contact Michelle Ochweri, Manager of Contracts & Purchasing at cp@bentonpud.org.
