The RFP provides information on the available property or location, explains how to prepare a proposal, and outlines the terms of prospective leases or licenses. The RFP describes improvements that the operator of a business is expected to make to the property as a condition of the agreement. As part of an RFP, a site visit will generally be arranged to permit the prospective proposers to view the property or premises being offered. The Real Estate Department seeks proposals from as many potential operators as possible, evaluates all of the proposals submitted, negotiates terms and conditions, and concludes the transaction.

MTA invites all interested parties to submit a proposal in response to an announcement of an RFP. The specific requirements of any RFP and the documents required in support of any proposal will be detailed in the RFP information packet which is available on-line via the links shown above.
