Purpose and Available Funding
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP), issued pursuant to MFA’s Procurement Policy, is to solicit proposals from qualified Offerors capable of providing Program Services for RAP funding within the 2016-2020 program years (“PY”) in accordance with 24 CFR Part 576 and all applicable guidance from HUD. Funding will be made through a competitive process to eligible Offerors.
The estimated funding available for the RAP 2016-2017 program year is $789,916. Available funding is based on last year’s funding levels. Please note that actual funding levels have not yet been determined and could vary from current year funding levels.
If other funds become available to MFA during the program year for activities similar to the work performed under the program, this additional funding may, at the option of MFA, be offered to the successful Offerors, hereunder, without a new RFP. MFA retains sole discretion to make the judgment as to the need for additional RFPs. Satisfactory performance under the program year 2015-2016 and prior program years will be a prerequisite for consideration of additional funding.
Offerors may not obligate funds, incur expenses, or otherwise implement program services prior to execution of a contract with MFA. Funding is anticipated to be available for future program years at similar levels, but is subject to change. Funding is not guaranteed to any given Offeror in any given amount.
MFA will review provider performance and reserves the right to de-obligate reallocate and redistribute funds throughout the contract term.
All Offeror proposals must be received for review and evaluation by MFA no later than Friday, April 15, 2016 at 4:00 PM Mountain Time. Proposals shall be in sealed envelopes marked “Proposal to Offer Services for the Rental Assistance Program.”
