City of Worcester Seeks Consultant to Review Contract with Spectrum Cable

 by Patrick SargentAugust 4, 2022

WORCESTER - The City of Worcester opened a bid on Thursday requesting consulting services to review its licensing contract with Spectrum Communications.

Specifically, the Request for Proposal (RFP) is for professional consulting services for a cable ascertainment study. The City has also separately requested another RFP for a marketing firm to help evaluate a public survey to measure the sentiment of residents toward the city’s TV services.

The RFP states the cable study consultant will work with the city’s Cable Advisory Committee to evaluate the city’s public access, education and local government channel facilities, equipment, services and future needs.

The consultant will also need to work to identify contractual gaps in Spectrum’s performance under the current contract, as well as make recommendations to the city to improve a new contract with Spectrum.  They will need to identify any shortfall in Spectrum’s capabilities as it relates to its services to subscribers, public buildings, or the city’s public access TV stations.

The RFP also calls for guidance with regulatory requirements at the state and federal levels, review Spectrum’s franchise payments for the past three years for accuracy, and reviews the current contract for any variances in contractual responsibility of Spectrum versus services provided.

The City would like the consultant to provide a 2022 Cable Service Study by Feb. 1, 2023.

The bid for consulting services will close on Aug. 31, 2022.
