August 12, 2011 [Washington, DC] — Seeking Industry Input - Draft EUL RFP To Develop Housing Opportunities For Veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Asset Enterprise Management (OAEM) is pleased to release the DRAFT Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL) Request for Proposals (RFP) template to carry out the implementation of the Building Utilization Review and Repurposing (BURR) initiative through public-private partnerships. The BURR initiative is a VA strategic effort to identify and repurpose unused and underutilized VA land and buildings nationwide with a major focus on reuses that support VA’s goal to end Veteran homeless. This notice represents an opportunity for interested parties to participate in the development of the EUL solicitation vehicle before its finalized release.
OAEM strongly encourages interested parties to review the draft document and submit their comments to: VA_BURR@va.gov.
Phone calls will not be accepted.
Interested parties may submit comments, questions, or recommendations concerning any element or aspect of the draft RFP (Technical, Administrative, Contract, Legal, etc) until 9:00am EST on August 25, 2011.
Interested parties should bear in mind that the draft RFP is a working copy, which does not represent an active solicitation. OAEM is not seeking proposals at this time, but rather contributions from industry to further improve and refine the vehicle and ultimately lease performance. OAEM anticipates release of a finalized RFP in the first week in September 2011 with awards to be made in December of 2011.
