This initiative represents one prong of the City’s effort to preserve and strengthen fashion manufacturing in the Garment Center as a vital anchor of the City’s world-class fashion industry.

NYCEDC will evaluate responses based on the criteria stated in the RFEI, which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal and the experience of the Respondent team identified in the proposal.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and any 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.
