NCDOT seeks ferry sponsorships
North Carolina Department of Transportation today released a Request
for Proposals (RFP), seeking a company to manage sponsorship
opportunities for the North Carolina Ferry System.
RFP seeks an asset management sponsorship company to work with NCDOT in
supervising and managing as many as three corporate sponsors for the
Ferry System. Those sponsors would have opportunities ranging from the
branding of wi-fi and vending services to the branding of the vessels
themselves. Money raised from those sponsorships would automatically go
to a fund designed to replace aging ferry vessels.
is something we’ve been working on for awhile,” said Ferry Division
director Ed Goodwin. “It took some time to navigate the legalities for
a transportation system regulated at both the state and federal levels,
but we now have a program that has the potential to raise a significant
amount of money for new ferries.”
The RFP asks for all proposals to be submitted by April 4. For a link to the RFP itself, click here.
