Submission Deadline

NYCEDC is seeking a consultant or consultant team to provide design services to support the construction of two Ollis Class Compatible Flex Barges.

NYCEDC plans to select a consultant 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.
