The city issued a request for applications from both individuals and firms for “professional engineering and advisory services” in 23 different fields this week on the online tendering site Merx.
The posting is a request for standing offers, meaning the city is hoping to pre-approve applicants so they can use their services on an as-needed basis during the six years of project construction.
It is willing to spend between $2 million and $3 million, the posting said.
Work on the project, which when completed will see 12.5 kilometres of light rail and a 2.5-kilometre tunnel built underneath downtown, is set to begin this year.
City officials have said in the past they hope to maximize the amount of work local firms get from the project.
