New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority Request for Qualifications: Market Study Analysts


The RFQ FAQ period is now closed. 

Question 1:

Will the agency be hiring the analyst directly, or will any developer seeking to apply for credits be required to hire an analyst from the approved list?


MFA will not be hiring the analyst directly, the purpose of the RFQ is to place qualified persons or firm on an approved list for developers who are requesting funding from MFA to utilize.

Question 2:

If the agency will hire direct, we can propose a not-to-exceed fee per study based on the number of studies ordered concurrently. If the applicant can hire, our fees can vary based on the timing of the request, firm capacity, location of market, and discounts can be offered for concurrent studies ordered. Should we include the range of fees that can be expected for the applicants?


A fee basis consisting of a fee range that can be expected for applicants is acceptable. The fee range shall be an all inclusive rate per market study.
