The City of Phoenix Water Services Department performs daily repairs to water distribution and wastewater collection infrastructure across Phoenix. With over 4,000 waterline breaks a year, the Water Services Department manages many temporary pavement and concrete cuts. This task is incredibly challenging as these waterline breaks may occur in arterial, collector, or local streets, often outside of City right-of-way, wherever City water and sewer infrastructure are present.
The scope for this Job Order Contract (JOC) consists of rapid mobilization and the execution of permanent repairs to asphalt and concrete pavements impacted by City repair work. In addition, this JOC covers ancillary curb and gutter restoration and other asphalt and concrete repairs as needed.
Rapid project completion was a key goal for this JOC as part of an ongoing effort by the Water Services Department to resolve repair and maintenance backlogs. In parallel with the issuance of this JOC pursuit, the City’s Street Transportation Department is implementing a new Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping project to track and standardize the quality and aesthetics of patches on roadways within the City. The Request for Proposal required submitters to demonstrate their knowledge and systems for meeting both goals simultaneously.

Mission Critical combined these strengths with our ability to translate expertise, best practices, and benefits into scorable, quality content and reasoning for Alternative Delivery projects.
Overall, this was the third win for the Cactus / Mission Critical team and represents a decisive success in the highly competitive regional JOC market.
