Milestone Board


New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) seeks a qualified consultant (the “Consultant”) to administer the ConstructNYC Training Program, including related marketing and vetting activities. In 2015, NYCEDC launched ConstructNYC, which is designed to prequalify small-to-mid-sized Minority, Women-Owned, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (“M/W/DBE”s) in specific trades to work on NYCEDC projects. The Consultant would deliver the training component, through a combination of classroom learning and one-on-one technical assistance, to firms who have applied and been accepted into the program. The training will be focused on strengthening the financial, project management and business acumen of participating firms to build their capacity and put them in a stronger competitive position.

NYCEDC plans to select a consultant on the basis of factors stated in the RFP  which include, but are not limited to: appropriateness and quality of respondent’s experience, qualifications of proposed staff, approach and methodology, M/W/DBE participation, and proposed fee.
