REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS AND PROPOSALS FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SERVICES



Due to a vacancy in the Renville County EDA Office, the Renville County HRA/EDA Board (the “HRA/EDA”) is requesting proposals from economic development firms or individuals (hereinafter “vendor”) to provide economic development services. The HRA/EDA expects to select a vendor who will serve the HRA/EDA until December 31. 2020; prior to that time an evaluation will take place to determine the feasibility of continuance. Economic Development services are expected to begin on a date to be determined by the HRA/EDA in coordination with the vendor. The selected vendor will be expected to play a proactive role in assisting the HRA/EDA and County staff, and make appropriate recommendations regarding economic development.

The community desires to select the best-qualified economic development vendor through the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The ideal vendor should have extensive experience in economic development including management of economic development programs, economic development marketing, and business outreach to foster strong relationships with existing and perspective businesses. The vendor will work closely with the HRA/EDA, a seven-member body.

The HRA/EDA desires a vendor to provide services in lieu of hiring a full time employee engaged in economic development.
