“The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is Requesting Proposals from qualified Respondents to manufacture and supply residential Manufactured Housing Units (MHUs) as temporary housing for Texas residents affected by Hurricane Harvey in designated areas along the Texas coast and inland,” said the agency in a release.
DJ Pendleton and the TMHA are “currently aware of at least one major staging area in Herne, Texas. We suspect additional areas will soon be developed, and have heard one such area might be near the San Antonio area,” they said in a statement to MHProNews.com.
“The services solicited herein include the manufacture and delivery of the MHUs to staging areas designated by the GLO in Rockport, Corpus Christi, and Houston, Texas,” the Texas GLO said.
The solicitation, see below, includes transportation, installation and maintenance of said MHUs.
“Respondents may also submit proposals under this Solicitation to transport the MHUs from the staging areas to the residents’ home sites, install them on site, and provide maintenance for the duration of occupation by the residents.”
The published deadline is 10.4.2017 at PM CT.
Agency Requisition Number: RFP-X0013723-DF
TMHA tells MHProNews that they may be getting additional information later today. If so, there will be an effort made to update this report once that information is in hand.
