JFKR Community Initiatives


The JFK Redevelopment Program (“the Program”) is an $18.5 billion infrastructure initiative to modernize the John F. Kennedy International Airport. In 2018, Former Governor Cuomo announced the formation of a Community Advisory Council (CAC) comprised of key stakeholders from the targeted zip codes. The CAC is one of several steps to ensure representation within the workforce, and contracting opportunities will be achieved across the Program.

As the Program prepares for near-term opportunities and other on-airport projects to improve facilities, we are looking for a PANYNJ, or NYS ESD certified MWBE firm with a preferred qualification of Tier 1 or Tier 2 Local to serve as Program Coordinator for one of our community initiatives: the Institute of Concessions (IOC). In this capacity, the qualified entity is expected to develop, execute, advance, facilitate, coordinate, quality control, and project manage the IOC under the leadership of the Port Authority of NY & NJ (PANYNJ) and JFK Airport Redevelopment Program (JFKR).

Please see the attachment for more information. To apply, please send a capability statement, two letters of recommendation attesting to past performance and services, and samples of presentation materials to [email protected] by Friday, July 15, 2022. The subject line of the email should read “Interest: Institute of Concessions Program Coordinator”. If you have any questions, please contact Suzette Bather-Taylor, Program Director, Business Diversity, Aviation, PANYNJ, at [email protected]
