We encourage innovators, civic hackers, programmers, and other businesses to share ideas and concepts through our unsolicited proposal process.
What is an unsolicited proposal?
An unsolicited proposal is a written offer that is submitted to WeGo Public Transit for the purpose of developing a partnership or concept which is not in response to a current procurement solicitation.
An unsolicited proposal meets the following characteristics:
An unsolicited proposal is a concept that uses innovative but efficient solutions to offer added value, lower operating expenses and/or avoided capital expenses to our regional transportation system.
It is not an offer or alternative for property or services that WeGo is currently procuring through competitive method and is not a policy or operating procedure recommendation.
Who should submit?
WeGo welcomes proposals from any vendor with technical and financial resources to provide the services proposed or the ability to contract with WeGo and/or serve as a partner in a contract resulting from the adoption of the proposal. WeGo encourages and welcomes innovative submissions from private sector businesses (including startups and small businesses), labor unions, municipalities, academic institutions, philanthropic foundations, and non-profit organizations.
Submitting an Innovation Proposal – Concept Submission
All Conceptual Proposals shall be submitted to WeGo by email to WeGoBusiness@nashville.gov using the submittal form. WeGo may request more detailed information from the proposer as a component of the evaluative process. After a full review, WeGo will decide whether to forego the proposal, to proceed to a sole source agreement, to test a pilot program, or to pursue a competitive solicitation based upon the proposal.
