East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is the official comprehensive, area-wide planning agency for the seven member counties in the East Central Wisconsin region including the counties of Calumet, Fond du Lac, Menominee, Outagamie, Shawano, Waupaca and Winnebago. ECWRPC also serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Appleton (Fox Cities) and Oshkosh, and as staff for the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Fond du Lac. East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, as the MPO for Appleton (Fox Cities) and Oshkosh and staff for the Fond du Lac MPO, receives PL funds for the MPOs and must follow the federal regulations as they relate to MPO activities within 23 CFR 420 and 450.
As part of an operating agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), ECWRPC maintains the North East Region Travel Demand Model (NERTDM), a traffic forecasting model encompassing the following counties: Brown, Calumet, Door, Fond du Lac, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Oconto, Shawano, Waupaca, and Winnebago. This system is run through CUBE modeling software created by Bentley Systems, and is utilized to forecast travel impacts of new developments within the region.
ECWRPC is seeking a qualified consultant to develop training materials and facilitate training sessions for general operation and utilization of the NERTDM. This training is intended for an audience unfamiliar with traffic forecasting and CUBE modeling software. These trainings and documents will be utilized to onboard new staff at ECWRPC and prepare them to handle forecast requests from our communities.
The Consultant selected to complete this project will coordinate, work with, and work under the direction of ECWRPC staff for the completion of work described within this RFP. The deadline for completion of this project will be Friday, November 15, 2024.
