Not in 2008: Scott Phelps of the Office of the Mayor in Phoenix stated in a March 2006 e-mail, "I think 2012 is more in line with our plans."  He added, "I think we almost always ask for RFPs like this.  We are the 5th largest city in the country, after all.  Even when you are not proposing, seeing what the expectations are, what the requirements are, help you make a thoughtful proposal when you're ready -- as I believe we will be in 2012."

[Phoenix has a city manager/council form of government].
