HPD works with the City's Procurement Policy Board to obtain a variety of goods, services, and construction, which are generally obtained through a bid or proposal solicitation process. This process offers the opportunity for equitable participation by businesses throughout the City.
The procedures for the procurement of small purchases vary significantly from those for large purchases, and each process is clearly defined in the City's Procurement Policy Board Rules. Small purchases involve procurement for supplies, goods/services, construction/construction related services, and information technology with a value of not more than $100,000. Any procurement valued in excess of these amounts is considered a large purchase.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR EVICTION PREVENTION SERVICES FOR SECTION 8 TENANTS
The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD” or “the Agency”) Office of Financial Management and Analysis, Division of Tenant Resources (“DTR”) is issuing a Request for Proposals starting on July 29, 2013 seeking one or more qualified vendors to provide eviction prevention services to Section 8 tenants who are at risk of losing their Section 8 voucher and becoming homeless due to: being in arrears on rent; either Housing Assistance Payments (“HAP”) owed by HPD or the tenant portion thereof; Housing Quality Standard (“HQS”) failure (subsidy suspended); failure to recertify or otherwise comply with program requirements; unprocessed rent increases; building foreclosure; or building conversion. Other households eligible for services would be tenants at risk of losing their vouchers due to advanced age, illness, mental illness, substance abuse, domestic violence or disabilities.
HPD administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (“HCV”) program, a federally funded housing subsidy program that subsidizes rents for eligible low-income households in privately owned rental housing. Most of HPD’s HCV holders have household incomes at or below 30% of the area median income; a small portion have household incomes up to 95% of the area median.
There will be three (3) separate competitions for each of the three (3) service areas described in the RFP, as follows:
- Service Area 1: South Bronx, 6,000 households in service area
- Service Area 2: Northern Manhattan, 8,000 households in service area
- Service Area 3: Brooklyn, 8,000 households in service area
HPD’s total HCV caseload is approximately 30,000 households, of which a 20,000 are located in the designated areas cited above, and many more are located close to these areas. For example the highest concentration in Manhattan is located in CD’s 9, 11, and 12, but CD 3 the Lower East Side and CD 7, the Upper West Side also have significant numbers of participants. The South Bronx generally considered CD 1-6 has the highest concentration, but CDs 7 and 9 contain over 1,000 potential families. Although the majority of cases will fall into the geographic Services areas cited above, providers will also be expected to address cases outside of these areas upon request by HPD. Each awardee must be prepared on a limited basis to address such requests made by HPD.
A Pre-Proposal Conference will be held on August 13, 2013 at 11:00 am. The conference will be held at the HPD Offices located at 100 Gold Street, Room 4-V1, New York, NY 10038. Attendance is optional but highly recommended.

COMPETITIVE NEGOTIATED ACQUISITION
PIN # 80612N0001
The Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") is issuing a Competitive Negotiated Acquisition for Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Services. HPD is seeking an appropriately qualified locally-based organization and their subcontractor(s), if applicable, to join in its efforts to continue to assist homeowners and tenants of small homes who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure.

Program services to be provided by the organization include free legal services, housing counseling, loans workout (including modifications), and consumer education.
A singular contract stemming from this Competitive Negotiated Acquisition will be awarded as a result of direct negotiation, through a formal interview process, with interested vendors.
