RFP #2016-2 CIRTA Strategic Planning Services – Organizational Study and Action Plan

Issued by: Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority
Contact: Philip D. Roth, Ph.D., AICP, Mobility Manager, 317-327-7433,
Due Date: June 10, 2016
Questions due: May 25, 2016
Answers posted: May 27, 2016
Summary: The Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority (CIRTA) is a form of regional government (IC 36-9-3) established in 2004, which works to expand transportation options for the 10-County region of Central Indiana (including Boone, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby Counties). CIRTA is governed by a 17-member board with representation appointed from elected leaders in the ten counties as well as municipalities, the governor, and a labor organization for public transportation employees.

The program and organizational structure of the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority is due for re-examination. The last time strategic roles and programs were revised was in 2006 (Strategic Plan), and the last time the organizational structure was reviewed was in 2010 (Organizational Study). A staff-led process has laid the groundwork for reconsidering these issues, with organizational vision and mission being well-defined as of this writing.

The Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority hereby issues this Request for Proposals (RFP) in order to solicit proposals from individuals, firms, and teams (referred to herein at “bidding firms”) in order to complete the strategic planning process, including the following activities:

  • An assessment of alternatives for future activities, programs, and organizational structure;
  • Leading the CIRTA Board in selecting from these alternatives to form an organizing focus for developing and prioritizing annual activities; and
  • A description of national and/or international best practices in mobility management and transit agency management that might have applicability for CIRTA.
