Kitsap Public Utility District (KPUD) is seeking proposals from a qualified legal firm(s) to provide general counsel legal services to support KPUD’s staff and its Board of Commissioners in accordance with the Scope of Work described in the detailed RFP/Q linked on this webpage.

The contract will provide firm fixed rates for an initial two-year term with options for two additional two-year extensions and rate increases, solely at the discretion of KPUD.
Proposals shall be made according to the "Instructions to Proposers and General Provisions," and as detailed in the RFP/Q linked on this webpage. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in disqualification of the proposal.

Proposals must include a description of the proposed services, a rate/fee schedule, and a brief description of the firm, including any regional affiliates, if applicable, and biographical data on key personnel, especially those who would be assigned to work under the contract.

At least three references, other than KPUD, must be provided as detailed in the RFP/Q linked on this webpage, authorizing KPUD to contact other customers with regards to the proposer's previous job performance. A proposer that is determined to have an unsatisfactory record of performance and/or integrity in connection with the pre-qualification, bidding, or performance phase of any previous contract may be rejected for consideration.

Proposals will be accepted at KPUD’s Administrative Office in Poulsbo, WA until 1:00 p.m. PST October 31, 2023, and addressed to: Peter Dressel, Contracts & Compliance Manager, Kitsap Public Utility District, PO Box 1989, Poulsbo, Washington 98370 or by email to pdressel@kpud.org. KPUD recommends that confirmation of receipt is requested for email submittals.

Late submittals will be rejected and returned to the proposer unopened after that time.

Should the respondent subsequently become the successful proposer, the submitted proposal and any attachments will become part of the contract and the property of KPUD.
