Proposal Response Deadline:
(Wednesday, January 3, 2024 @2:00 PM)
Kitsap County Public Works Stormwater Division (“Stormwater Division”) is seeking proposals from
qualified firms to conduct an evaluation of the County’s existing stormwater management assets and
systems and develop a strategic asset management plan (SAMP) based on ISO 55000, 55001, and 55002
standards to optimize infrastructure performance, reduce stormwater impacts to waterbodies, and guide
decisions regarding maintenance, planning, budgeting and program management.
The Stormwater Division provides surface water planning and management services for unincorporated
Kitsap County and the County’s MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System). The MS4 includes
conventional assets as well as green infrastructure and stormwater parks. The drainage system spans
several major watersheds featuring abundant freshwater lakes and salmon-bearing streams, has direct
drainage to Hood Canal and Puget Sound, and three TMDL waterbodies (Dyes Inlet, Sinclair Inlet, Liberty
Bay). The Division’s Stormwater program supports stormwater system operation, maintenance, and
administration; National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Stormwater Permit
and other regulatory compliance; various programs and partnerships designed to reduce runoff pollution;
and capital construction. These activities serve approximately 180,000 residents and provide protection
and restoration of local waterbodies and Puget Sound.
The County has invested significantly in GIS-based solutions (Cartegraph, ArcGIS®/ArcGIS® Online,
SeeClickFix) to manage its assets and activities (e.g., stormwater/sanitary sewer assets, customer
complaints, illicit discharges/spills, etc.). They provide field data collection, asset location/information, and
work order fulfillment.
The County has developed key management actions to move the Stormwater program forward, determine
asset types and locations, and meet regulatory requirements, including critical elements like the
Stormwater Comprehensive Plan/Stormwater Management Action Plan (SMAP); M&O/SOP manual with
guidelines for all asset classes; an Overburdened Communities/Environmental Equity Atlas; and a fully-
mapped storm system in an existing data management solution.
The proposed project will add a SAMP that defines how the County manages and enhances maintenance
and replacement of assets, provide AMPs that complement the Cartegraph system, and provide a long-
term view that considers organizational needs, stakeholder expectations and the realities of existing
assets and asset management capabilities to define a clear path forward.
Project goals:
evaluate current tools/decision-making processes, and how resources can more effectively be
provide a framework to increase efficiency in work practices and integrate information that will
inform project priority decisions
pinpoint critical assets, measure risk and reliability across asset types
set key performance indicators
incorporate climate change data, risk assessment, targeted pollution data, environmental equity,
and other decision-making tools to allow us to direct resources to areas with the most impact
Inform policy and procedure, fine-tune SOPs
inform future needs - equipment, staff, or enhanced technology
identify where enhanced maintenance may benefit water quality
track hotspots and support an enhanced monitoring plan to determine assets performance
integrate with existing systems, and amplify stormwater actions and planning efforts
The selected firm will conduct an asset management analysis for the Stormwater Utility and develop a
Strategic Asset Management plan (SAMP) for the Stormwater Division, Asset Management Plans (AMPs)
for two selected asset classes, and an AMP Development User Guide and Template sufficient to enable
staff to independently develop AMPs for all remaining asset classes.
