Anti Violence Reform Agenda: Rikers Island

August 17, 2015– The New York City Department of Correction (DOC) intends to engage McKinsey and Company, Inc. Washington D.C. for a consulting contract to “Accelerate and Sustain the Department of Correction’s Anti Violence Reform Agenda.” DOC seeks to retain consulting services in order to finalize the last phase of the work initiated under an expiring New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) contract. DOC is also considering expressions of interest from other vendors for evaluation. The agency anticipates a contract for a period of one (1) year, commencing September 2015.

DOC’s Anti-Violence Reform Agenda:

Phase I – III of the NYCEDC Contract
DOC’s Anti-Violence Reform Agenda represents the administration’s continued commitment to reform Rikers Island after decades of neglect. The agency’s goal is to reduce violence and improve safety in the jails. 14 initiatives were developed based on their potential to systematically reduce violence in DOC facilities.

• Keep weapons, drugs and contraband out of Rikers, including visitor reforms
• Create an integrated classification and housing strategy
• Provide comprehensive security camera coverage
• Design effective inmate education opportunities and services to reduce idle time
• Redefine first line incident response
• Improve leadership development and culture
• Redefine the Investigations Division
• Design a recruitment, hiring and staff selection plan
• Design a staff performance management plan
• Implement operational performance metrics and analysis
• Create a well-defined supply distribution process
• Improve custody management processes
• Expand targeted training for officers and non-uniformed staff
• Raise facilities to a state of good repair

The current contractor provided consulting services with a focus on building the capabilities of key DOC stakeholders and the implementation and pilot of the reform agenda.

Compelling Need and Scope of Work for Phase IV
DOC is in the process of building its capacity to run a newly created Program Management Office (PMO), executing the plans associated with the 14 reform initiatives and is in the early stages of piloting some of the initiatives at two (2) facilities. There is a continued need for consulting services to support the PMO and reform initiatives, with a focus on building the capabilities of key DOC stakeholders. The vendor will

• Enhance the capabilities of the Program Management Office through skill based training and coaching
• Begin to transition responsibilities to DOC staff
• Scale up the development and deployment of analytic tools, including those needed to operationalize a new Housing and Classification Strategy
• Roll out the Model Facility across the system incorporating lessons learned from each model facility
• Build a customized training curriculum for top departmental leaders to develop managerial capabilities and leadership skills
• Strengthen overall institutional capacity

The full impact of the antiviolence reform agenda will be achieved over multiple years and will require additional assistance. Critical start-up support is required from a qualified consulting firm for DOC to be successful in implementing the antiviolence reform agenda. A solicitation document may be obtained from DOC’s website at http://www.nyc.gov/html/doc/html/contracting/contracting.shtml

Vendors that believe they can provide comprehensive organizational analysis and operational assistance to DOC as detailed in Phase IV, are invited to submit an expression of interest along with a written experience statement by letter. DOC will not be responsible for any expenses in the preparation and/or presentation of responsive submittals, or for other disclosure of any information or material received in connection with the solicitation. DOC reserves the right to request additional information or clarification, if necessary.

The research is intended to provide guidance in setting priorities in prosecutions, design undercover operations against gun transactions, craft new regulations, and related actions, all with the ultimate purpose of reducing gun violence.

MOCJ will continue to accept expressions of interest to the extent required by the City of New York Procurement Policy Board Rules.

The first tier would consist of clients having the option to respond to questions at computer banks located within HRA Job Centers. The second tier, conducted by an HRA worker at Job Centers, would seek additional information to determine whether the clients need referral to other HRA programs, for example, domestic violence or medical and/or mental health, or substance use treatment services.

55 Stuyvesant Place – Staten Island

September 24, 2015– New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) seeks proposals (“Proposals”, each a “Proposal”) from qualified developers for the redevelopment of 55 Stuyvesant Place, a historic municipal office building (the “Building”) located in the heart of the North Shore of Staten Island (the “North Shore”). The Building is owned by the City of New York (the “City”) and available for purchase or lease.

55 Stuyvesant Place is a five-story, 37,675 square foot Art Deco building. Constructed in 1935, the Building was designed by Henry C. Pelton, who was also responsible for Riverside Church, Park Avenue United Methodist Church and a multitude of buildings in New York City. The Building features two elevators and separate stairwells and entryways which provide access to double-loaded corridors, high ceilings and floors with waterfront views. The floor-plates range from 4,000 – 6,000 square feet and have potential for a variety of layouts. The Building is a centrally-located City-owned asset in support of an emerging cluster of innovative technology and creative businesses in Downtown Staten Island.

NYCEDC plans to select a developer on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the economic impact of the project on New York City, the response team’s qualifications, the project’s financial feasibility, and the degree to which the project is complementary to the surrounding community. NYCEDC will show preference for quality proposals that support creative, media and/or technology uses that enhance the neighborhood’s transformation as a center for information, aim to strengthen and revitalize the urban context of the Site, propose a design and program that enhances connections to and accessibility for the surrounding community and strive to achieve design excellence.

This project has Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (“M/WBE”) participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit an M/WBE Participation Proposal with their response.

Teleport Site B-1

September 25, 2015– The New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (“the Port Authority”) are seeking proposals to develop a manufacturing use on all or part of an 18-acre site (“the Site”) located within Staten Island’s industrial “Working West Shore.” The successful response to this request for proposals (RFP) will be for a project that generates quality jobs in a dynamic industry; depending on the strength of the response, the City may be willing to consider certain forms of tax relief and other financial assistance to support the project’s development.

This RFP follows a broader Request for Expressions of Interest (“RFEI”) issued for the entire Teleport last year. Responses to that RFEI and subsequent diligence have informed the current understanding of which uses might be desirable and possible at the Site today.

Based upon that diligence, Modular Construction Assembly, Flood Defense System fabrication, and the manufacture of Green Energy systems (solar panels, wind turbines) were identified as uses that may be good fits for the Site, and as growth industries with strong potential in the region and on Staten Island’s West Shore. NYCEDC and the Port Authority will also consider other manufacturing uses not listed above; the foregoing merely represents examples of uses considered and explored in the preparation of this RFP.

NYCEDC plans to select a development team on the basis of factors stated in the open RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the open RFP.

If a proposal is selected, it will be on the basis of a thoughtful approach to both maximizing the development potential of the Site and managing it in a manner that acts as a catalyst to the economy of Staten Island as a whole. Responses to this RFP should aim to accomplish the following goals (“Development Goals”):

  • Identify a development plan for one or more manufacturing uses on the Site.
  • Preserve and expand quality jobs for local residents and help fulfill the area’s potential as a vital employment center.
  • Establish a site plan that addresses the infrastructure, access and utility needs for the proposed project and is not incompatible with the surrounding uses at The Teleport.
  • Propose an environmentally sensitive development that considers on-site and nearby ecological resources and neighboring communities.

This project has Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (“M/WBE”) participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit an M/WBE Sub- Contractors Participation Plan with their response. To learn more about NYCEDC’s M/WBE program, visit http://www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe.
