The committee is comprised of five (5) members and four (4) alternatives to include a citizen at-large and alternate citizen at-large not associated with the county or any professional firm. Four (4) members and three (3) alternates are to be drawn from the staff of Bernalillo County and nominated by the Public Works Director or the County Manager.
The Bernalillo County Public Works Selection Advisory Committee members shall be as follows: one position shall be occupied by the public works division director or designated staff alternate and another position shall be nominated by the public works division director from public works staff along with an alternate. The County Manager shall nominate two members along with alternates. One member along with an alternate shall be a citizen-at-large, not associated with the county or any professional firm and approved by the board of county commissioners. The Board of County commissioners is not bound by the nominations submitted by the public works division director or by the county manager. If any nominations are unacceptable to the Board of County Commissioners, additional nominations shall be requested from the public works division director or the County Manager, respectively, until the Board of County Commissioners approves the nominations. All approved members shall serve two-year terms and may be reappointed for successive terms.
Other agencies or political entities which contribute at least 30 percent or more of the total project cost of a project being considered may elect to place a voting or an advisory member on the selection advisory committee for the project. Such members shall be in addition to the five member public works selection advisory committee.
Departments in other divisions may have procurements for professional services that warrant utilizing this ‘Selection Advisory Committee’ process. The use of alternates under Section 2-398 allows the respective Deputy County Manager, Department Director, and assigned Section Manager that are applicable to the procurement to sit on the Selection Advisory Committee in lieu of the Public Works Division staff presented above. As an example, for the Parks and Recreation trail project, the DCM for Community Services, the P&R Direction, and the assigned P&R section manager would sit on the committee. (3/26/13 Agenda item)
