The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) is the agency responsible for managing the water, wastewater and storm water infrastructure for the City of Philadelphia (City). As such, it is responsible for the planning, design, programming and construction work processes necessary for development of new and the rehabilitation or replacement of existing infrastructure.
PWD is seeking a comprehensive capital planning information solution to support its capital planning, budgeting, design and construction processes. This solution will be a replacement for an existing system called CAPIT, which was custom developed more than a decade ago. PWD has a strong preference for a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) solution and has been evaluating various COTS applications, including enterprise portfolio and project management (EPPM), enterprise project management (EPM) and project management information system (PMIS) solutions. It is PWD’s intention to contract with an implementation vendor experienced with this class of software to implement PWD’s selected solution. Throughout the RFP, PWD will use EPM to refer to this class of software. PWD is looking for established solutions, which are comparable in scope, complexity and environment to the requirements described herein.
