Key Information

Notice Type:Emergency Procurement

Published:10/22/2012
Notice Expiration Date:06/11/2013
Emergency Justification:The Authority issued RFP 2012-HDA-LE-012 for litigation, real estate, employment & labor, and special tax counsel with responses due on August 23, 2012 (the “Initial RFP”). The Authority received thirteen (13) responses to the Initial RFP. In 2010, the Authority received sixty-four (64) responses to an RFP for the same services. Based on this large variance, the Authority believed the RFP needed revision to clarify that vendors could respond to any one of the four (4) categories and did not have to respond to or be qualified in all four (4) categories. The Authority decided that it was in the best interest of both the Authority and the State to cancel the Initial RFP, edit the RFP in this regard and republish. The Authority made applicable edits to its Initial RFP and republished RFP 2012-HDA-LE-033 for litigation, real estate, employment & labor, and special tax counsel with responses due on October 23, 2012 (the “Republished RFP”). The Authority’s current contracts with its counsel that provide such services are set to expire on October 31, 2012. The Authority intends to enter into emergency contracts with certain of its incumbent counsel for ninety (90) calendar days to avoid causing serious disruption to State services and to allow for sufficient time so that the Authority can finalize the procurement process and enter into new contracts as contemplated in RFP 2012-HDA-LE-033.
Accordance with Admin Rule:Minimize serious disruption to critical state services that affect health, safety, or collection of substantial state revenues
