The Grantee invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the "Proposal") from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to develop a technical assistance to formulate and produce the specific documentation outlining the various ITS solutions to be implemented, ITS specifications, ITS standards to be used, including a step by step practical approach that defines the actions needed to be taken by CET-Sao Paulo to effectively and efficiently implement ITS technologies along the Tiete and Pinheiros corridors.

The Tiete and Pinheiros corridors serve as the main arteries for the city and CET-Sao Paulo has identified them as the highest priorities for the deployment of an integrated ITS system that seeks to improve traffic flow while increasing traffic safety. The corridor extends for approximately 23 kilometers and consists of seven lanes in each direction, representing 10% of Sao Paulo's total traffic congestion. CET-Sao Paulo has identified the need for deployment of various components of ITS systems including closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems, a fiber optic network, flood detection system, among others.

CET-Sao Paulo is responsible for the overall traffic engineering and traffic management systems for the City of Sao Paulo and is responsible for the development and implementation of ITS.

The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $420,000 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).
