This RFP reflects significant reforms to HPD’s RFP selection process, which now places greater emphasis on proposals with plans for neighborhood investment, among other changes to meet the needs of communities.

The Site is located at 4790 Broadway, between Dyckman Street and Academy Street, in Manhattan Community District 12.

Clean Energy Fund: Develop+Field Test Innovative Energy Storage Systems

December 28, 2017 – NYSERDA supports the growth of the energy storage portfolio in New York State. Despite advances in storage technology, several technological challenges still exist including high hardware costs, suboptimal system performance (efficiency, life cycle and thermal stability), and insufficient integration field testing with the grid and other applications. These barriers continue to hinder and effect the growth of energy storage deployment.

As a result, NYSERDA is seeking proposals to develop and field test innovative energy storage systems focused on:

  • Hardware (including balance-of-system hardware) cost reduction.
  • Performance improvements (efficiency, energy and power density, and thermal stability), for NY-specific applications’ duty cycles (e.g., building demand response, electric vehicle charging, solar photovoltaics (PV), and large-scale wind farming).
  • Load-side and generation-side field testing of new energy storage technologies to reduce peak load, store and reuse solar PV and wind energy to aid firming up these resources, and provide ancillary services.

NYSERDA is employing a two-step application process for this solicitation.  All proposers must initially submit a four-page concept paper using the Concept Paper Template provided in Attachment A.  The Concept Paper should provide a concise overview of the proposer’s energy storage innovation. The Concept Paper will be reviewed and scored by a scoring committee based on the Evaluation Criteria in Section IV. If favorably reviewed, proposers will then be invited to submit a full proposal.

Funding:  Two rounds of this solicitation are anticipated for 2017.  The total available funding through Dec. 31, 2018 is $6,300,000.  Up to $1,825,000 will be committed by Dec. 31, 2017 and the remaining funds will be committed during Round 2.

Details.  Proposers are encouraged to visit the Clean Energy Fund section of the NYSERDA website (https://www.nyserda.ny.gov/cef) and review the Renewable Optimization Chapter of the Clean Energy Investment Plan, which is associated with this solicitation. All documents associated with this solicitation and required details are below.

Since then, each hospital has temporarily restored the damaged areas and, working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), have developed plans to mitigate damage from future storms and flooding.

Develop Transitional Residences for Homeless Families + Drop-In Center for Adults

November 2, 2020- The Department of Homeless Services is soliciting proposals from organizations interested in developing and operating transitional residences for homeless adults and families including the Neighborhood Based Cluster Residence and drop-in centers for adults. This is an open-ended solicitation; there is no due date for submission. Proposals will be reviewed by the Department as they are received and contracts will be awarded on an on-going basis, until the agency’s capacity needs are met. DHS reserves the right to award a contract on the basis of initial offers received without discussion. Contracts will be awarded to responsible applicants whose negotiated offers are determined to be the most advantageous to the City, taking into consideration the price and other such factors and criteria set-forth in the RFP. Contract award will be subject to the timely completion of contract negotiations between the agency and the selected proposer.

It is anticipated that the transitional residence contracts will range from 3 to 30 years including renewal options and depending on the financial terms and conditions.

Pursuant to Section 312 (c) (1) (ii) of the New York City Charter, the Competitive Sealed Bid procurement method is not the most advantageous method because judgment is required in evaluating competing proposals, and it is in the best interest of the city to require a balancing of price, quality and other factors.

Thus, pursuant to Section 3-03 (c) of the Procurement Policy Board Rules, the open ended RFP will be used because the Department will select qualified providers to develop and operate transitional residences in order to address the need to create additional shelter capacity citywide. In addition, this open-ended method will provide interested applicants an opportunity to propose sites for the targeted population, as they become available for shelter development.

All proposers must meet the following minimum qualifications 1) must have a tax exempt status under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and or be legally incorporated as a for-profit entity; 2) must demonstrate that they have, or can obtain by the contract start date, site control of the proposed Standalone facility location(s); and 3) must demonstrate an intent to enter into lease agreements with the owner(s) or management designee(s) for each property.
