Ford Airport Authority (“the Authority”) requests submission of Statements of Qualifications from any responsible car rental company (hereinafter “Respondent”) interested in entering into a future Concession Agreement and Facility Lease to operate a rental car concession as a New Entrant at Gerald R. Ford International Airport (the “Airport”). The Authority will evaluate the Respondents’ submissions and will thereafter invite those Respondents that the Authority determines to be qualified (hereinafter “Qualified Respondents”) to subsequently respond to a Request for Proposal for a Concession Agreement and Facility Lease to be awarded for Rental Car Concessions at the Airport (“RFP”), which is scheduled to be issued Q1 2023. Currently, six companies provide rental car services at Gerald R. Ford International Airport. The rental car companies occupy 195,779 SF within the existing parking garage for ready and return operations. In addition, the rental car companies lease approximately 389,415.34 SF (8.94 Acres) northwest of the airport terminal for maintenance of their fleets. A sample of the current Rental Car Concessions and Lease Agreement is provided, for informational purposes only, in Attachment A to this RFI. The Authority is in the process of planning Future Car Rental Facilities in a new structure east of the existing Parking Garage. The Ready/Return facility will be five levels in height (four elevated decks) with Level 5 assigned as overflow storage during the summer months only. (Note: During the winter months, Level 5 will not be used as no snow removal is anticipated. The Quick Turnaround Areas will be located on Levels 1 and 3 with an equipment mezzanine located on Level 2. Level 4 of the QTA structure will be designed to accommodate future vehicle storage, however, construction of this upper level will not occur until the current FAA tower is relocated. The Future Car Rental Facilities will be funded by Customer Facility Charge (CFC) revenues. All Qualified Respondents will be invited to attend on-going meetings with the Authority and its consultants, regarding the planning, design, and development of the Future Car Rental Facilities as well as respond to the future RFP. The Authority intends to offer a pre-sized site for a New Entrant through the RFP process. The site is anticipated to consist of: (a) Customer Service Building (CSB) space, (b) Ready/Return Area space; (c) Quick Turnaround Area (QTA) space, which includes stacking spaces, fueling positions, and vehicle wash bays. No maintenance bays are planned within the proposed facility. A minimum acceptable Proposal (Bid) amount will be assigned by the Authority to the New Entrant site. The Airport Authority anticipates entering into negotiations for six (6) sites for use by existing Rental Car Operators that have reported gross revenues to the Airport Authority in the past Gerald R. Ford International Request for Proposals Airport Authority # 1147 9 twelve (12) months more than four million, five hundred thousand dollars ($4,500,000) (“Existing Operators”). Further, the Authority anticipates it will designate one site for any Qualified Respondent to this RFI that has not reported gross revenue to the Authority for the preceding twelve (12) (“New Entrant”). The Authority reserves the right to revise the Future Car Rental Facilities concept and the affected premises to be offered and will provide a final layout depicting the site packages, and a form of Agreement, with the final RFP. A Qualified Respondent whose Proposal (Bid) is accepted by the Authority will then enter into a Concessions Agreement and Facility Lease for the New Entrant site package based upon its Proposal (Bid). The Concessions Agreement and Facility Lease is currently estimated to commence in calendar year 2025. The Concession Agreement and Facility Lease is subject to approval by the Airport Authority Board. Unless and until the Airport Authority Board gives its approval, the Authority has no authority or obligation to enter into a Concession Agreement and Facility Lease with a New Entrant. (Note: The Airport Authority will not permit operation of rental car services on a “permit basis” (i.e., off-airport operator) at Gerald R. Ford International Airport). B.
