Date Of BOCC Meeting: September 11, 2018

Agenda Text

IEM was unanimously chosen by a 16-person, multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional panel. They were deemed the most qualified firm for the project based on their methodology on accomplishing the work, their subject matter experts who have relatable recovery planning expertise, significant experience supporting local government on projects of a similar size and scope, and the overall cost to accomplish the work. Durham County has previously contracted with IEM to complete Emergency Action Plans for County Administration Building I, Human Services Complex, and County libraries.
