Request for Proposals

PIN#334112 - Due: 4/17/2020 3:00 PM

Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, d/b/a Brooklyn Bridge Park (“BBP”) is issuing this request for proposals (“RFP”) to solicit the services of a Professional Employer Organization to, among other things, act as co-employer for BBP employees, providing personnel, benefits, and payroll services (the “Services”, as set forth in greater detail in Section B of this RFP). Subject to the availability of funds and the responses to this RFP, BBP anticipates entering into an agreement with the highest-rated, responsive proposer.

BBP is an 85-acre sustainable park that stretches 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River waterfront. BBP’s mission is to connect people, nature, and the waterfront through inclusive, innovative, and sustainable management and design. The Park’s long-term vision is to contribute to a healthier, more livable city. The Park occupies one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring urban settings in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge and overlooking Lower Manhattan and New York Harbor. The Park was initiated by the State of New York (“State”) and the City of New York (“City”), with State and City lands comprising the Park leased initially to the Brooklyn Bridge Development Corporation (“BBPDC”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the New York State Urban Development Corporation d/b/a Empire State Development. In July 2010, BBPDC then subleased the lands comprising the Park to BBP, which assumed responsibility for the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of the Park.

BBP is a New York State not-for-profit corporation composed of a Board of Directors that includes representatives of the Mayor of the City of New York, Governor of the State of New York, Brooklyn Borough President, New York City Council, New York State Senate, and New York State Assembly.
