New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”), on behalf of the City of New York, is interested in collaborating with the life sciences research and development (“R&D”) community to activate a network of Applied R&D Facilities (“Project(s)”) across the City. These Projects will accommodate the specialized infrastructure and talent needs of both City-based institutions and new life sciences ventures, enabling academic and industry scientists to co-develop and test commercially viable technologies. The Applied R&D Facilities Program (“Program”) represents a $50 million commitment designed to spark joint ventures across academia and industry as part of LifeSciNYC, the City’s 10-year $500M initiative devoted to the life sciences industry. Through this Request for Information, NYCEDC seeks recommendations that will inform the vision and scope of capital projects that address critical unmet need for technical resources in the City’s life sciences R&D ecosystem.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives.
