Contracting opportunities and professional services opportunities will be solicited through a public process governed by the U.S. Corps of Engineers and the Flood Control District. Opportunities will be advertised publicly so that local firms will have every chance to bid. In addition, the project will use Small and Disadvantaged Business policies that will encourage participation among those groups.

Professional services are expected to be solicited six months after project approval and funding is secured. Construction related bid opportunities are expected to occur approximately one year after pre-construction engineering and design begins.
