    Development of R. O. Ranch Business Plan

    R. O. Ranch, Inc., is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for development of a Business Plan for an equestrian-based camping facility at the R. O. Ranch (Ranch).

    In order for the Ranch to achieve its full potential, staff must be employed, facilities maintained and user fees collected, and the Ranch will need to be operated like a business. For the Ranch to be viable, user fees collected must exceed the cost of operation on an annual basis. The selected consultant shall develop a business plan for the Ranch that will accomplish this goal.

    Consultants interested in submitting a Proposal will be given an opportunity to inspect the facilities and supporting engineering plans, construction documents, and other pertinent information as a part of the MANDATORY pre-proposal conference scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Thursday, February 18, 2010. Proposals should evaluate the site conditions, capital improvements, operating cost assumptions and revenue assumptions in order to determine the feasibility of the Ranch being operated as viable business entity.

    Proposals are due at District headquarters by 2:00 p.m., March 11, 2010. Proposals received after this time, for any reason, will be rejected.

    Additional information is available and RFP packages may be downloaded from the District website: www.mysuwanneeriver.com.

    Questions should be addressed to: Pennie Flickinger, Business Resource Specialist at (386)362-1001 or pff@srwmd.org.
