Description

PURPOSE OF REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit competitive proposals to provide consulting services to the County to continue its development and implementation plan to attract Chinese Tourists to the County of Rockland. The winning bidder will work closely with the Director of Economic Growth and Tourism to increase the number of Chinese travelers to Rockland County.  The purpose of this request for proposal is to enter into a contract with a qualified firm to continue the County’s implementation of the Chinese Tourism initiative to attract the Chinese tourist.  This initiative began in 2015 and the goal is to build on the accomplishments and attract more Chinese visitors to the County. 
 
The Tourism industry in New York State means business.  Tourism provides an opportunity to generate revenue from external sources and help alleviate the tax impact for the residents.  Given this scenario, Rockland County is seeking to take advantage of the positive tourism environment in the State and draw the Chinese tourist to our area.  Having a targeted market historically yields the best results and Rockland has identified the Chinese tourist as the desired market for outreach.  The County is looking to continue this initiative which commenced in 2015.
 
The County anticipates awarding one contract for services.  The award may be made to a consortium of entities to provide the services. 
 
Successful contractor must be willing to enter into a contract with the understanding that funding for contracts may be adjusted up or down based upon the final allocation.  
 
Respondents are strongly encouraged to create innovative programs specifically designed to attract the Chinese tourist to the County and ensure a positive experience.
 
This RFP is designed to provide interested offerors with sufficient basic information to submit proposals meeting minimum requirements but is not intended to limit a proposal's content or exclude any relevant or essential data.  Offerors are at liberty and are encouraged to expand upon the specifications to evidence service capability under any agreement.
