New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) on behalf of The City of New York (the “City”) is requesting responses from parties wanting to purchase tidal wetland mitigation credits (“Credits”) from the City’s first wetland mitigation bank, the Saw Mill Creek Pilot Wetland Mitigation Bank.

The Saw Mill Creek Pilot Wetland Mitigation Bank is a mechanism that provides compensatory mitigation through the sale of Credits to applicants in the waterfront permitting process.

This Open RFP is to provide interested Respondents with opportunity to propose to NYCEDC a purchase price to acquire whole or fractions of Credits. In their responses, Respondents should indicate Credit quantity, purchase price, and pertinent information about Respondent’s project(s) and permitting status for which Credits are to be used.

NYCEDC plans to select Respondent(s) the City will sell Credits to on the basis of factors stated in the Open RFP which include, but are not limited to the following criteria: (1) the purchase price proposed by the Respondent; (2) the quantity of Credits requested by the Respondent; (3) the location of the proposed project; (4) the proposed project(s) or intended Credit use; (5) the timing of the potential purchase of Credits and (5) the degree to which the Respondent demonstrates the Respondent’s full understanding of Credit usage.

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.
