for Services Related to Preparing and Submitting a Foreign Trade Zone Application for a Region in Western Colorado
Tuesday, September 6, 2016 – Based on the needs of existing, relocating and expanding businesses, the Grand Junction Economic Partnership and Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with other economic development partners in the region, would like to apply for a foreign trade zone (FTZ) and either a port of entry or user fee airport designation. The partners have issued a Request for Proposal for Services Related to Preparing and Submitting a Foreign Trade Zone Application for a Region in Western Colorado – download the RFP here.
The City of Grand Junction commissioned a study in 2015 to determine the feasibility of a FTZ for our area and found it to be feasible (read the study here), but additional necessary information still needs to be collected in order to determine the boundaries of the zone, cost of application, ongoing costs, identification of potential users and their volumes of products, and fee structures that need to be implemented.
Please read the RFP for full details and submit any questions by 2:00 p.m. on September 14, 2016.
All proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
