AUSTIN – The University of Texas System today posted a request for proposals (RFP) to seek offers for the most suitable site for the administrative headquarters for The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

The administrative headquarters for UTRGV will need to accommodate about 100 employees, including staff, professional level and executive level personnel. Considerations will include a proposed site’s access to amenities and major highways – ideally in or near an established commercial district – and access to UTRGV’s campuses.

The RFP, which is posted at https://www.utsystem.edu/reo/RFPsYes.htm, is the first step in selecting a site for the future UTRGV headquarters. UT System staff, assisted by a master planner for the new university, will review and evaluate all proposals and select a site or sites for further evaluation and negotiation. The UT System Board of Regents will make the final decision on selecting the location.

In 2013, the Texas Legislature unanimously passed a bill to create UT Rio Grande Valley, a historic move that will combine the resources and assets of UT Brownsville and UT Pan American and, for the first time, make it possible for residents of the Rio Grande Valley to benefit from the Permanent University Fund.

The institution, which will provide an outstanding education to the students of South Texas, Texas, the United States and the world, will also be home to a school of medicine and will transform Texas and the nation by becoming a leader in student success, teaching, research and healthcare.

“This is yet another step on the incredible journey to establish UTRGV as a beacon of opportunity and excellence,” said UT System Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D. “We have come a long way, but there is much work ahead and we are ready for the task. We look forward to seeing the proposals and selecting what will best serve the students, faculty and staff at UTRGV.”
