RFP for Events on Governor’s Island

February 2, 2015– Governors Island Corporation d/b/a The Trust for Governors Island (“The Trust”) is issuing this request for proposals (this “RFP”) to seek proposals from producers, organizations, or sponsors (hereafter “Respondents”) to host public, ticketed or private Events (as hereafter defined) in one of two areas on Governors Island: (i) the area known as the West Development Zone (“West Site”), or (ii) the parking lot area adjacent to Soissons Dock (the “Soissons Site”).

• Respondents may propose a term of either one year or two years.

• The West Site and the Soissons Site may be referred to collectively as the “Sites” or individually as a “Site”. The Sites are described in further detail later in this RFP.

• For purposes of this RFP, Events shall include, without limitation, concerts, exhibits, festivals, theatrical events, catered events, restaurants, artistic performances and other types of entertainment, cultural or artistic productions.

• Respondents may propose for either Site or both Sites. If a Respondent desires to submit a proposal for both Sites, it must submit a separate proposal for each Site.

• The winning Respondents to this RFP will be issued a permit (“Permit”) from The Trust and each may be hereafter referred to as the “Successful Respondent” or the “Permittee”.

Please note that while The Trust will review proposals for both Sites, the Trust will not issue a Permit for both Sites to a single Respondent. Additionally, the Trust will reserve the right to not issue Permits for substantially the same use for both Sites and regardless would not issue the same use for both sites (for example, two Permits would not be issued for concerts) without the mutual consent of both proposers.

During the Permit Term, a Permittee will be allowed:

(a) not more than 20 event days of more than 2,000 people between May 15th and October 15th of each of each year; and

(b) an unlimited number of event days of up to 2,000 people, subject to the same restrictions for amplified sound as established elsewhere in this RFP.

(c) access to the Island for loading in, setting up, or breaking down the event without that access counting towards Permittee’s number of event days.

Given the critical importance of Governors Island continuing to operate as primarily a public space and public resource, The Trust is seeking proposed uses that will complement and be consistent with the public character of the Island and cause minimal impacts to Island operations, as well as to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and surrounding areas. The Trust reserves the right to reject proposals that it deems as compromising to the public enjoyment of the Island.
