Emergency Shelter Social Services In Commercial Hotels-Negotiated Acquisition-EPIN#071117N0005-The Department of Homeless Services is soliciting qualified vendors to contract for the provision of shelter and services for eligible homeless families with children, adult families, and single adults who are applying for temporary housing assistance. DHS is seeking to replace its current emergency procurement process and enter into master agreements with vendors to provide borough based shelter and services as an alternative to short term shelter placement and to enhance client services and control costs. Under Master Contracts, during the commercial hotel phase out, DHS would pay vendor(s) to procure reservations at current commercial hotel in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx, manage this emergency portfolio and address the need for emergency placements as such need may arise, and provide social services to residents at the facility and all costs associated with managing their portfolio(s).

It is anticipated that the contract will range from 3 to 9 years including renewal options and depending on the financial terms and conditions.
