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.

May 31, 2022- New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking qualified firms to construct infrastructure and resiliency improvements at Coney Island Hospital.

NYCEDC, as the lead of an interagency team, is now focused on the Major Work project. The construction of the Coney Island Hospital campus project is currently envisioned to build a new resilient acute care hospital tower to be known as the Critical Services Structure (“CSS”) and to include the following work:
• Provide on-site valet parking for 300 cars
• Demolition of existing buildings, including Hammett Pavilion, Building 6, and various existing site improvements;
• Renovation and selective demolition of 60,000 gross sq. feet including portions of the existing Main Building and Tower Building; and
• Build a new permanent flood mitigation structure (s) (e.g. flood wall) around the campus.
NYCEDC is seeking qualifications for the following types of construction contractors:
• Concrete Contractors • Abatement Contractors • Demolition Contractors • Electricians • Plumbers • Elevator Contractor Scaffolding/Sidewalk bridge • Mechanical – HVAC • Fire Protection • Masonry • Site/Civil Work • Low voltage electrician • Site Fencing • Painting • Carpentry • MEP Insulation • Steel Work • Roofing and Waterproofing • Spray on Fire Proofing • Tile Work • Flooring • Windows • General Contractors • Exterior Façade
NYCEDC plans to select contractors on the basis of factors stated in the RFQ which include, but are not limited to: the firm’s demonstrated experience and expertise in the particular trade for which the firm is submitting its qualifications; the firm’s composition and experience in coordinating and implementing similar projects; the firm’s familiarity with public approvals, permitting and experience working with multiple governmental agencies; the firm’s record regarding accidents and lost work days on construction projects; and the firm’s resources available for the Project. The Services described above will require extensive coordination and collaboration among the Construction Management firm (the “CM”) hired by NYCEDC, the other construction trades working within the Project Site, and the Project Team.
NYCEDC has contracted with NBBJ to lead the design effort for all contract documents associated with the Services. The CM will provide construction management services for the Project, including holding all construction subcontracts for the Project. NYCEDC anticipates that initial projects will be procured in Q1 2017. Design packages will continue to be completed and released periodically with final projects’ anticipated completion in May 2022. NYCEDC will issue advertisements in the City Record and provide a notice on EDC’s procurement website (www.nycedc.com) of forthcoming design packages to be issued by the CM. Once NYCEDC posts an advertisement for a forthcoming design package, firms will have approximately 30 days to provide their qualifications in order to be considered for the prequalified list of firms who will receive the bid package from the CM.
