Requests for Proposals (RFP)—More Information

The RFP provides information on the available property or location, explains how to prepare a proposal, and outlines the terms of prospective leases or licenses. The RFP describes improvements that the operator of a business is expected to make to the property as a condition of the agreement. As part of an RFP, a site visit will generally be arranged to permit the prospective proposers to view the property or premises being offered. The Real Estate Department seeks proposals from as many potential operators as possible, evaluates all of the proposals submitted, negotiates terms and conditions, and concludes the transaction.

MTA invites all interested parties to submit a proposal in response to an announcement of an RFP. The specific requirements of any RFP and the documents required in support of any proposal will be detailed in the RFP information packet which is available on-line via the links shown above.

All inquiries are encouraged, and the MTA welcomes the participation of minorities, women, and other disadvantaged groups in the business opportunities available on MTA property. The MTA Office of Civil Rights at 646-252-1364 is available to provide assistance to applicants. No proposer will be subject to discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.

There is generally a 60-to-90-day evaluation period, during which further negotiations may take place before a final decision is made on an award. As a matter of policy, most leases or license agreements are submitted for approval to the board of the MTA.

To clarify all of the requirements governing any particular RFP and to be certain that you receive all of the information that is available, please be sure to contact the real estate manager responsible for the particular RFP in which you are interested prior to your submission.
