(SitNews) Anchorage, Alaska - The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) issued a request for proposals (RFP) seeking qualified vendors for an Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) Economic Reshaping Consultant.

The Alaska Department of Transportation is soliciting proposals to identify potential reductions of the state’s financial obligation and/or liability as related to the Alaska Marine Highway System.

On March 1, 2019 DOT&PF issued an informal request for proposals with responses due March 11, 2019. The department heard from interested parties that a longer time frame and larger budget were required and based on this feedback, the timeline has been extended and the budget has been increased.
