Food and Beverage Co-Packing Facilities Consultant Services

July 31, 2015– The food and beverage manufacturing subsector is a bright spot of growth within New York City’s industrial sector, currently employing over 15,000 people. The subsector’s employment has increased by 11 percent during the last decade, with growth driven by entrepreneurship and small businesses. Over the last several years, the City has invested to support this entrepreneurial growth. To date, New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) has assisted the subsector with a network of culinary incubators, dedicated loan funds, and access to retail opportunities in public markets across New York City. Through this work, and research by New York City Councilmember Stephen Levin, NYCEDC has identified that a shortage of locally provided co-packing services often prevents food and beverage manufacturing firms from scaling in New York City. To better support the development of growth-stage food and beverage manufacturing businesses, NYCEDC is requesting responses from potential operators to fill this service gap for several food categories.

NYCEDC is seeking proposals for the development and operation of food and beverage co-packing facilities within New York City. Proposals are welcome from qualified Operators with manufacturing experience to develop a facility that will support the growth of businesses and jobs within the Food and Beverage Manufacturing subsector. To support the development of one or more food and beverage co-packing facilities, NYCEDC may provide funding to offset start-up costs, capital improvements and operations.

NYCEDC plans to select an Operator on the basis of factors stated in the 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 RFP, and the proposed fee.

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. To learn more about NYCEDC’s M/WBE program, visit http://www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe.

Body Cameras for the NYPD and Related Hardware and Data Storage Solution

August 7, 2015– The New York City Police Department (“NYPD”) is conducting a solicitation which seeks a comprehensive end to end solution for capturing, transmitting, and storing video and audio using body-worn cameras carried by patrol officers. The NYPD is soliciting applications from firms with demonstrated experience in designing and maintaining such a solution. The body-worn cameras must be lightweight and functional in all weather conditions. Firms must also provide a data storage solution (either cloud-based or employing on-site data storage) as well as all equipment necessary to operate the cameras (e.g. charging stations, data cables) and to upload captured video and audio data from the cameras for long-term storage (e.g. docking stations). If a vendor employs a cloud storage solution, it must meet the NYPD’s security requirements, as outlined in the Solicitation. The contract established as a result of this solicitation will serve as a Requirements Contract for the purchase of hardware, storage, licenses, and maintenance services on an as-needed basis. The anticipated term of the contract would be for five years from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2020. There would also be three 3-year renewal options.

A contract award will be made by the Negotiated Acquisition source selection method, pursuant to City of New York Procurement Policy Board Rules (PPB Rules) § 3-04(b)(2) because the NYPD has determined that it is neither practical nor advantageous to award the proposed contract by competitive sealed bids or competitive sealed proposals, and that this source selection method is in the City’s best interest. First, there exists is a compelling need for the goods and services that cannot be timely met through competitive sealed bidding or competitive sealed proposals. Second, there are a limited number of vendors able to provide the required body cameras and the related equipment and services of the nature and specificity required by the NYPD. Thus, pursuant to Sections 3-04(b)(2)(i)(D) and 3 04(b)(2)(ii) of the PPB Rules, a special case determination has been made that this solicitation should be done using the Negotiated Acquisition method of Source Selection. Any Vendors that wish to express an interest to be considered for this solicitation may download or request the complete solicitation document and submit completed application(s) if they feel that they can supply the required body cameras and related goods and services.
This Procurement is subject to Local Law 1, the City of New York’s M/WBE Program.

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.
