LANSING – The Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation have issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to fulfill consumer requests for travel information, including data entry services related to those requests.

“With the Pure Michigan Official State Travel Guide being extended to three publications annually and visitor interest in Michigan growing, it is critical that we ensure we are responding to consumer information requests in the most efficient, cost-effective manner,” said MEDC President and CEO Michael A. Finney.

The RFP seeks a contractor for information packet fulfillment and inquirer data entry services for all consumer requests for Michigan travel information, including the Pure Michigan Travel Guide and a state highway map.

According to the RFP, it is designed to provide potential bidders with sufficient information to submit a proposal that meets the MEDC minimum requirements, but the minimum requirements contained in this RFP are not intended to limit the proposal’s content or exclude any information the bidder feels is relevant or essential to their bid.
