Description
DEVELOP TRANSITIONAL RESIDENCES FOR HOMELESS ADULTS AND FAMILIES AND DROP IN CENTERS FOR ADULTS – CSP – PIN# 071-00S003262 – The Department of Homeless Services is soliciting proposals from organizations interested in developing and operating transitional residences for homeless adults and families including the Neighborhood Based Cluster Residence and drop-in centers for adults. This is an open-ended solicitation; there is no due date for submission. Proposals will be reviewed by the Department as they are received and contracts will be awarded on an on-going basis, until the agency’s capacity needs are met. DHS reserves the right to award a contract on the basis of initial offers received without discussion. Contracts will be awarded to responsible applicants whose negotiated offers are determined to be the most advantageous to the City, taking into consideration the price and other such factors and criteria set-forth in the RFP. Contract award will be subject to the timely completion of contract negotiations between the agency and the selected proposer.

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.

Any organization that believes it can provide these services may contact: Keli Mills - Director of Department of Homeless Services RFP Unit at 929-221-5486, 150 Greenwich Street, 37th Floor, NY, NY 10007, to request a copy of the RFP application, which is available at www.dhs.nyc.gov or for pick-up only Monday through Friday on business day between the hours of 9:00am to 5:00pm due to security please email to kmills@dhs.nyc.gov to gain access in the building.
