Some immediate takeaways (and reaffirmations) from the RFP (still skimming thru it)

The Arena is currently managed by the NHL, the owner of the Coyotes, and its existing arena management agreement with the City and other related arena agreements contractually expire after the current NHL season (June 2013). The City and members of its City Council are soliciting proposals from qualified Venue Managers (“Manager(s)”) to provide sales, marketing, operational, managerial, and maintenance support services for the Arena and the ancillary parking facilities owned by the City.
The City is seeking to have a Manager assume full operating responsibilities of the Arena no later than July 1, 2013.

d) On behalf of the City, collect and remit all Base Recovery Fees, City Parking Fees and any other surcharges levied by the City;
A.) Minimum Requirements/Qualifications for Managers.

iii. The Manager must have current experience in operating such a facility on behalf of a public entity, such as the City of Glendale (...)
Technically, nothing precludes any tire kickers from bringing in "ringers".

C.) Pre-Proposal Meetings and Arena Tours

Pre-Proposal Meetings and Arena tours can be arranged with Beacon Sports between May 6 and May 10, 2013. Please contact Beacon Sports to arrange an appointment for a tour and Q&A session during that week. The purpose of the tours and meetings is to (i) meet with members of the City staff, (ii) allow interested parties to provide questions, suggestions, and feedback to the City, (iii) view the physical plant and fan amenities at the Arena, and (iv) allow the City to provide prospective Managers with any additional information it believes is warranted. Attendance at a Pre-Proposal Meeting is not mandatory but strongly encouraged.

More to come...
