"in need of purging": State issues RFP for Charity Hospital Building

Once again, I don't believe the Section 106 consulting parties were specifically notified about this particular endeavor that makes up part of the effort to find an adaptive reuse for Charity Hospital.  The Programmatic Agreement in place requires notice to the consulting parties.

Here's the Request for Proposals:

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by Interim LSU Public Hospital (herein referred to as the State or ILH) for the purpose of selecting a contractor to plan, manage and oversee the removal and disposal of all furniture, furnishings, supplies, equipment, records and rubbish from the Charity Hospital Building at 1532 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana and the Lapeyre & Miltenberg (L&M) Building at 1550 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana. These buildings, destroyed as a result of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, have not been used in their previous capacity since then and are in need of purging for any determined future state use.

I'm also curious as to when the State of Louisiana will hold the second Charity adaptive reuse public meeting mandated by the Programmatic Agreement.  The last one was held in mid-October 2010.
