Receive, consider and act upon the Residential Survey Request for Proposals; 
BUDGET IMPACT:       The Woodlands Township has $35,000 budgeted for Public Opinion Surveys in the Community Relations budget. As stated in the 2014 budget narrative, this line item is used to gauge public opinion of The Woodlands and its programs. This research includes public opinions about development in The Woodlands, public safety, wayfinding systems, transportation, shopping, dining, and other related aspects, specifically geared to services and programs of The Woodlands Township.       
The Woodlands Township traditionally conducts a survey of The Woodlands residents approximately every two years for purposes of obtaining resident opinions of services and for use as a budgeting and planning tool. Results are online on The Woodlands Township Web site.
In preparation for the 2014 survey, staff has reviewed and updated the questionnaire to include most of the same questions as the previous survey. This has several benefits: to allow trending of the information by maintaining the same questions, to speed the process of getting survey results because it will eliminate time spent in approving and testing new questions, and it eliminates costs related to developing and testing new questions. New questions related to mobility and transportation will be added to this year’s survey since this will be a new responsibility of the Township in 2014 and beyond.
The RFP has also been revised to request methodology for how the selected vendor will approach the need to include alternative methods since many people are no longer using land-line phones.
The remainder of the proposed schedule is to issue the RFP following the February 26, 2014, Board meeting, and to bring back the proposals to the Board at the March 26, 2014, Board meeting for final approval and consultant selection. The survey would then be conducted in April and May, with results presented to the Board at the June 19, 2014, Board workshop.
A copy of the proposed RFP is attached, as well as the 2014 draft survey questionnaire.
Approve the survey document, including new questions, the RFP document and the proposed schedule.
