Businesses may use the reporting form at covid19.nj.gov/ppereport to offer to donate PPE for use by health care workers and first responders on the front lines.
On Saturday, March 28, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 111, which requires health care facilities—including licensed acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospital systems including specialty hospitals, and all emergency field treatment facilities—to report their capacity and supplies on a daily basis beginning Sunday, March 29, 2020. This information is due by 10:00 a.m. each day, and will continue as long as Executive Order No. 111 is in effect. This information should be submitted via report.covid19.nj.gov.
Request for Information (RFI)
Additionally, NJEDA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) [PDF] to seek information, ideas, and solutions on how to ensure the state’s small businesses and non-profits have economical and equitable access to the appropriate personal protective equipment and safeguarding tools that they will need to reopen and operate safely. The RFI includes a special concern that PPE be available to organizations run by and for women, minorities and people of color, veterans, and other historically disadvantaged communities.
In particular, the NJEDA is seeking guidance on how to accelerate market-based solutions to meet the need for PPE, including an understanding of the support necessary from the State government, or other interested parties such as corporations or philanthropies, that could best reinforce those efforts.
Entities that can respond to the RFI may include: PPE manufacturers and suppliers, technology companies, medical or office equipment retailers or wholesalers, existing or new buying cooperatives or consortia, non-profit organizations, industry or trade groups, and post-secondary educational institutions. Respondents can offer ideas for full solutions for sourcing and distribution of PPE or could address one aspect of the need, such as technological solutions or small business insights.
All questions concerning the RFI must be submitted in writing no later than 11:59PM EDT, on Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020, via e-mail to: SmallBusinessPPE@njeda.com. Answers to questions submitted will be publicly posted on the Authority’s website on or about Wednesday, June 24th, 2020.
Final responses to the RFI must be submitted in writing no later than 11:59PM EDT, on Friday, June 26th, 2020 via e-mail to: SmallBusinessPPE@njeda.com. The subject line of the e-mail should state: “RFI Response-2020-RFI-OET-Covid19-PPE-107.”
