The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) requests responses to this Request for Qualifications for the award of three to five service contracts to perform flood science and planning activities related to Senate Bills 7 and 8 passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in 2019 (the Project). The majority of funding available for the Project will be state dollars allocated to support these efforts. Some contributions from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) program grants may also comprise a lesser portion of funding for the Project, contingent on availability of future appropriations and grant awards.

- 580-21-RFP-0006 – Arbitrage Compliance Services
To accomplish our goals of planning for the state's water resources and providing affordable water and wastewater services, TWDB provides water planning, data collection and dissemination, financial assistance, and technical assistance services to the citizens of Texas. The tremendous population growth that the state continues to experience, and the recurrent threat of severe drought only intensify the need for TWDB to accomplish its goals in an effective and efficient manner. TWDB regularly issues tax exempt municipal bonds and uses the proceeds of those bonds to provide financial assistance to political subdivisions for water facilities. The tax-exempt nature of the bond issues carries certain requirements, such as prohibition on TWDB investing funds received from a bond sale at higher rates than allowed by federal regulations. TWDB relies on consultants to perform the required calculations in order to determine whether any funds are owed to the federal government.
