The Chittenden County Transportation Authority dba Green Mountain Transit (GMT) is requesting proposals from qualified firms for the provision of legal services for its transit system.
GMT is a public authority which operates the public transportation system providing fixed route transit services to towns in Chittenden County, three commuter ‘Links’ that connect Chittenden County to Montpelier, Middlebury, and St. Albans, and rural transit services in parts of Washington, Lamoille, Grand Isle, Franklin and Orange Counties in Central Vermont. GMT provides paratransit services for citizens with disabilities in their respective service areas, as well as other transportation services. Both rural and urban services are financed by a combination of federal, state, and local financial assistance and as such are subject to the laws and regulations of the funding governments.
GMT currently uses the services of two legal firms on a regular basis. One firm is involved primarily with Labor Law. Another firm primarily handles Employment Law, Permitting, Contracts, Litigation, and other services. The firms also provide advice outside of their general areas. The current arrangement is successful, and there is no requirement that GMT retain any particular number of firms.
In this RFP, GMT is seeking to retain legal services as outlined below. In the case of a direct or appearance of a conflict of interest or for any reason GMT deems fit, GMT may retain the services of the other firm under contract or contract with an additional firm.
