INVITATION TO SUBMIT PROPOSALS
The City of Inglewood solicits and will receive proposals from qualified technical consulting teams
(“Proposers”) to provide technical support in the areas of APM civil infrastructure design, engineering
and project management (“Civil Works Advisory Services”) for the proposed Inglewood Transit Connector
Project (the “Project”), as further described in this Request for Proposals (RFP). The APM Infrastructure
consists of the stations, guideways, maintenance and storage facility, traction power substations, and
related infrastructure (roadways, utilities, etc.) necessary for the Project (the “APM Civil Works
Infrastructure”). A technical advisor for the APM operating system, architecture and urban design,
engineering and program management is being procured through a separate RFP.
The selected Proposer will work closely with the City of Inglewood staff, the APM operating system
technical advisor and the City’s legal, financial and program management/strategic advisors in the
planning, feasibility, procurement and implementation oversight of the Project, which is expected to be
delivered utilizing a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain structure. Given the broad nature of the
tasks requested in this solicitation, the City anticipates that Proposers teams may be made up of more
than one firm. The City will select one team in accordance with the evaluation criteria set out in this RFP.
Questions and comments are to be submitted in writing via email only RFP-0152@cityofinglewood.org
according to the timeline provided below. Responses will be answered and responded to in an addendum
to be posted on the City of Inglewood website, and will also be made available in hard copy in the Office
of Purchasing at Inglewood City Hall.
Each proposal shall be submitted, packaged and addressed as set forth in Section 5.0 of this RFP. In
submitting a proposal, the Proposer agrees the proposal will remain valid for 180 days after the deadline
for submission of proposals and may be extended beyond that time by mutual agreement.
The following conditions and terms apply:
1. The City reserves the rights set forth in Section 9.0 of this RFP and under applicable law;
2. Below and attached are detailed submittal requirements and evaluation criteria for proposal
submission;
3. The contract awarded the successful Proposer will provide for termination in the event of breach
of its provisions by the APM Civil Works Advisor;
4. This RFP, any future RFP Addenda and questions and responses related to the RFP will be available
on the City of Inglewood website; and
5. Cost for developing the proposals and creating presentations are entirely the responsibility of the
submitting Proposer and shall not be chargeable in any manner to the City of Inglewood.

1.0 THE OPPORTUNITY
The City is seeking proposals from Proposers experienced in APM infrastructure design, engineering, and
program management, in particular for automated transit systems, to support the City in the design,
planning, feasibility, procurement, bid evaluation, contract award and subsequent implementation for
the Project. The Project is expected to be delivered utilizing a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain
(“DBFOM”) structure with an availability payment method of compensation. The selected Proposer will
support the City and its other program management/strategic advisors and consultants by providing and
coordinating the necessary and required technical services for the Project.
The Project is an approximately 1.6-mile long, three station, fully elevated, electrically powered
automated people mover (APM) system that will connect passengers directly from the Metro
Crenshaw/LAX Line’s Downtown Inglewood station to new housing and employment centers, and
regionally serving sports and entertainment venues in the City of Inglewood including the Forum, the Los
Angeles Sports and Entertainment District (LASED) at Hollywood Park/SoFi Stadium and the proposed
Inglewood Basketball and Entertainment Center (IBEC) Project. The Project will also create a new transit
connection to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2028 Summer Olympic Games at the SoFi
stadium, to be directly served by two of the Project’s stations.
As depicted in Figure 1, the Project includes the construction of three new stations including the Market
Street station (located in the Downtown TOD Plan area), Prairie/Pincay station, and Prairie/Hardy station
(located in the Hollywood Park Specific Plan). Project information, including completed studies are
further described in Section 2.
To ensure effective Project implementation, the City is developing a DBFOM/Availability Payment delivery
method. Through a competitive procurement process, the City expects to select a DBFOM developer to
deliver the Project and place it into passenger service no later than mid-2026, and to operate and
maintain the Project in accordance with performance specifications for a 25 to 35 year term. The City will
make milestone payments during and at completion of design and construction to cover part of the
capital costs and, upon completion and acceptance, disperse periodic availability payments to pay the
private developer for a portion of the design and construction costs, routine and capital maintenance
costs, operating costs and financing costs, subject to meaningful deductions for sub-standard
performance during any payment period. This contracting strategy is designed to deliver: strong financial
incentives for on-time project completion and consistent performance over the contract term, clear
performance/outcome based specifications for safety, availability and quality service; City-retained
control over fare rates; lifecycle cost efficiency and predictability; appropriate risk transfer to the private
sector; innovation in design, construction and operations; and the use of cost-effective private financing
to drive system performance and offer the City additional flexibility in structuring cash flows.
The City intends to create an independent Community Services District (CSD) that will provide the
governance for the Project. The CSD is expected to be fully authorized, organized and staffed by mid-
2021, and will be responsible for managing the delivery and subsequent operations and maintenance of
the Project. The City will engage in an orderly and well-defined transition of Project responsibilities from
current governance to CSD governance, commencing mid-2021 (prior to the completion of the DBFOM
procurement) and completing it no later than the Financial Close of the DBFOM Contract. The City intends
to assign any contract that results from this solicitation to the aforementioned CSD by December 2021
(at the time of the close of financing and issuance of an NTP to construct). The City will retain
