The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia (the Fund) and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation (PPR) are seeking a qualified professional firm to identify ways to improve maintenance capacity, standardize sustainable practices, and increase resilience to climate change through review and changes to standard operating practices and procedures. This includes studying PPR’s operations, maintenance, and sustainability/resilience needs; researching best practices from other cities; and making recommendations and providing costs for key improvements related to departmental structures, staffing, plans, and policies.

Please note: The Fund and PPR have released three RFPs related to implementation of the PPR strategic plan. In addition to this Maintenance and Operations RFP, the Fund and PPR are seeking Program Planning and Customer Service consultancy services. The Fund and PPR will consider proposals that address more than one of the three strategic plan RFP opportunities. Should an applicant wish to respond to more than one RFP, the Fund and PPR expect that the budget and scope proposed reflect cost and work plan efficiencies, while also addressing each of the project’s requirements comprehensively.
