It is anticipated that the transitional residence contracts will range from 3 to 30 years including renewal options and depending on the financial terms and conditions.
Pursuant to Section 312 (c) (1) (ii) of the New York City Charter, the Competitive Sealed Bid procurement method is not the most advantageous method because judgment is required in evaluating competing proposals, and it is in the best interest of the city to require a balancing of price, quality and other factors.
Thus, pursuant to Section 3-03 (c) of the Procurement Policy Board Rules, the open ended RFP will be used because the Department will select qualified providers to develop and operate transitional residences in order to address the need to create additional shelter capacity citywide. In addition, this open-ended method will provide interested applicants an opportunity to propose sites for the targeted population, as they become available for shelter development.
All proposers must meet the following minimum qualifications 1) must have a tax exempt status under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and or be legally incorporated as a for-profit entity; 2) must demonstrate that they have, or can obtain by the contract start date, site control of the proposed Standalone facility location(s); and 3) must demonstrate an intent to enter into lease agreements with the owner(s) or management designee(s) for each property.
