Posted on January 27, 2011

The National Transit Institute is seeking proposals to revise, as necessary, and deliver the existing four training courses:

•    Orientation to Transit Procurement
•    Basic Cost, Price Analysis and Risk Assessment
•    RFPs and Competitive Contract Negotiations
•    Contract Administration

The four multi-day courses will be offered to new professionals and those who are currently engaged in federally funded procurement, particularly contract administrators, project managers, procurement and contracting personnel wishing to improve their skills, transit suppliers and Federal Transit Administration regional staff who review third-party contracting.

The National Transit Institute will require proposers with experience in the subject matter, as well as experience in revising, updating, and delivering training programs.

A copy of the complete Request for Proposal #1509 can be obtained here under the category “Active Bids.” The login is RFP 1509 and the password is mLXzh6yH (case sensitive). Completed proposals must be received in the Procurement Office of Rutgers University no later than 3:00 p.m. (EST), March 8, 2011. Late proposals will not be accepted.

Rutgers University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to provide opportunities to small business, minority-owned businesses and/or female-owned businesses. These businesses are encouraged to submit proposals.
