The information obtained through this RFI is to obtain market information and capabilities for planning purposes and to determine appropriate strategies to meet the Agency's requirements. This RFI is issued solely for information and planning purposes and does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a commitment for an RFP in the future. Responses to this notice are not considered offers and cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract. Responders are advised that the Government will not pay for any information or administrative cost incurred in response to this announcement and information submitted in response to this RFI will not be returned.


ICE is responsible for the detention of aliens in removal proceedings and aliens subject to final order of removal. ICE houses detainees in a variety of federal, state, local, and private facilities. ICE requires a facility and operator to fulfill the transportation, detention, and guard portions of ICE's mission in the greater Houston, Texas metropolitan area. Interested parties may consider existing facilities, newly constructed facilities, or a combination of the two where one can augment support services, such as: food, maintenance, laundry, and utilities as a way of minimizing construction costs, build-out time, and operational expenses. The ideal facility or facilities will provide both medium to maximum security case beds and low to minimum security case beds, shall be designed and operated to process and house adult (male and female) detainees, including the full range of criminal and non-criminal cases, and provide both transportation and guard services in a manner consistent with ICE's Performance Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS) and its civil detention reform initiatives.
