RFP for Business Analyst Consultant Opportunity

Background

Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (“PHDC”), on behalf of the City of Philadelphia’s (“City”) Department of Planning and Development (“DPD”), is seeking a qualified consultant (each, an “Applicant”, and together, the “Applicants”) to provide professional services to document a limited number of essential, current, business processes.

DPD coordinates the City’s planning, zoning, preservation, and housing functions to promote the economic health of all neighborhoods and the City. DPD includes the Divisions of Housing and Community Development (“DHCD”); Planning and Zoning (“DPZ”); and Development Services (“DS”). DPD also contracts with the PHDC, the Philadelphia Land Bank (“PLB”) and the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (“PRA”) to deliver housing services to residents and to support economic development activities.

The selected Applicant will work directly with our Deputy Finance Director and our Deputy for Human Resources and their teams to complete the project.  The workplan should allow for check in meetings with leadership at the launch, midway, and end of project to ensure agreement and alignment.

The Fiscal Unit is responsible for DPD’s annual budgeting of $180M from local, state, and federal funding sources, including funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”). Each year, HUD requires DHCD to complete an Annual Action Plan (includes program budget and plan for affordable housing and neighborhood programs) and that such Annual Action Plan be approved by City Council.  DHCD also manages other HUD grants such as Choice ($30M) and CARES Act ($40M).  DHCD contracts with over 75 non-profit agencies each year to carry out programs for low-income residents and communities. DPZ receives DVPRC grants, Mixed Income Housing Bonus Fees and ZBA fees for zoning transactions, as well as state funding to support planning and historical preservation functions. The Fiscal Unit administers all these transactions.

The Human Resources and Office Services Unit is responsible for Human Resources transaction functions for approximately 110 employees (inclusive of services such as compensation, onboard, offboarding, extraordinary payments, and separations as well as other duties); the health and safety of staff (ensuring accurate census of employees including emergency protocols); procurement, distribution and tracking of materials, supplies and services; and the maintenance of facilities and vehicles to support the department’s operations.

DPD recently completed our Continuity of Operations Plan (“COOP”) that documents our essential functions and the staff members that perform the tasks. Through that process, staff identified priority tasks within the Fiscal and HR functional areas that lack redundancy, business process flow maps and technical manuals on how to perform the task. To build our resiliency as a department, we seek to address these gaps.  Once an Applicant is selected, DPD will provide the following to inform the work:

  1. relevant information from the COOP to provide context for this project;
  2. the specific list of processes to be documented, and
  3. existing materials and documentation that speak to current processes.

Responsibilities/Task:

  • Develop a workplan and timeline for the project with input from leadership and team members to ensure staff availability and that the project is completed on time and within budget.
  • Research, review, and analyze the existing materials and develop strategies for enhancing or further leveraging these existing materials or informal processes to complete the task. NOTE: the intent is to perform most of the work on virtual platforms, but some document reviews may require on-site meetings for document exchange.
  • Produce a process flow diagram and confirm it presents the information in a usable format that can be readily updated internally by staff, in the future, when processes change and/or staff roles change.
  • Create documentation to provide “How To Guides” or Tools that detail for staff how to perform the tasks noted in the process flow diagrams. (This is not required for all tasks and these can exist in text format and/or in recorded video formats.)
  • Meet with Deputies for HR and Finance and/or their appropriate staff to document current processes.
  • Provide drafts for review and discussion to these teams.
  • Securing input from various operational staff, who will perform the tasks, and revise document accordingly to ensure clarity.
  • Finalizing documentation and transfer information.

Qualifications/Skills

  • Excellent analytical, mathematical, and creative problem-solving skills – most tasks are financial in nature.
  • Excellent listening, interpersonal, written, and oral communication skills
  • Logical and efficient, with keen attention to detail
  • Strong customer service orientation
  • Experience working in a team-oriented, collaborative environment
  • Proven experience with business and technical requirements analysis, elicitation, modeling, verification, and methodology development,
  • Demonstrated project management skills and project management software skills, including planning, organizing, and managing resources.
  • Prior experience working with public sector clients working within a regulated environment on externally designed systems and processes with limited ability to change requirements. 

Submission Requirements

  1. Organization & Personnel Qualifications: Applicant’s proposal must identify the Applicant’s qualifications by education level, skill set (described in detail), experience level, and job title. Resumes of all personnel so identified should be included in Applicant’s proposal. Experience with “like” projects should be cited. 
  2. Scope of Work Description: The scope of work proposed by Applicant should include a general project schedule that identifies estimated time for all tasks, activities, deliverables, and milestones. The proposal should state the number of days following PHDC’s authorization to proceed by which it will be ready to start the work, including any mobilization time. 
  3. Cost Proposal: DPD has set aside Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) to complete this project inclusive of time and materials. Applicant should propose scope and workplans within that budget. Applicant must provide a detailed cost proposal, which must include 1) a line-item breakdown of the costs for specific services and work products proposed, and 2) a statement of staff hourly rates. The proposed price must include all costs that will be charged to PHDC for the services and tangible work products the Applicant proposes to perform and deliver to complete the project. Any contract resulting from this solicitation will provide for a not-to-exceed amount in the compensation section of the contract.
  4. References: Include contact information for a minimum of two (2) references who can speak to the Applicant’s experience with similar types of work as that described in this solicitation.
  5. MBE/WBE/DBE: DPD seeks to promote opportunities for disadvantaged business. For all contracting efforts, each prime shall use its good faith and nondiscriminatory efforts to provide joint venture partnerships, sub-consulting and subcontracting opportunities for minority, women, disabled, and/or disadvantaged business enterprises (collectively, “M/W/DSBE”) registered in the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Economic Opportunity (“OEO”) and/or any agency that the City recognizes as having bona fide certifying program. The Department’s OEO goal is 35% for all contracting activities.

The term of the contract between PHDC and the selected Applicant will be one (1) year, which may be extended at the sole discretion of PHDC.
