Short Description

Business Plan and Market Analysis Request for Qualifications (RFQ)

Body

The SEDA-COG Natural Gas Cooperative, Inc. (referred to hereafter as the “Cooperative”) has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to Consultants who may be selected to participate in preparation of a Business Plan and Market Analysis to help define and support Cooperative operations.
 
The purpose of creating a Business Plan and Market Analysis for the SEDA-COG Natural Gas Cooperative is to build upon SEDA-COG's Regional Gas Utilization Initiative (RGUI) Phase 1 and 2 studies to support development of natural gas infrastructure projects. In those studies, several priority Targeted Investment Areas (TIAs) were identified for possible expansion of natural gas services in each of SEDA-COG’s 11 member counties. Ballpark cost estimates and phasing plans were created for these priority TIAs in each county. The Business Plan and Market Analysis will serve as a “road map” for natural gas project implementation in selected priority TIAs based upon the institutional, organizational, financial, and regulatory issues and steps required for startup and operation of the Cooperative and its resulting natural gas delivery infrastructure. The Business Plan and Market Analysis can also provide a focal point for presenting project funding proposals to prospective sources so that pricing, cash flow, return on investment, need for capital, and market strategies can be better defined and communicated to potential investors and sponsors.
 
A copy of this Request for Qualifications is attached to this announcement and may be downloaded in PDF format from the SEDA-COG Website at http://www.seda-cog.org/transportation/Pages/RGUI.aspx. Alternately, an electronic or printed version of the RFQ may be obtained from SEDA-COG after December 15, 2016 by written or e-mail request to:
