The New York Transit Museum seeks a NY State certified MWBE consultant to advise on a grant-funded disaster management planning project. The New York Transit Museum is a division of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) with the mission to collect, exhibit, interpret, and preserve the history, sociology, and technology of public transportation systems in the New York metropolitan region and conduct research and educational programs that make its extensive collection accessible and meaningful to the broadest possible audience.

The Museum’s Archives was founded in 1988 by a “policy instruction” signed by the President of the New York City Transit Authority (NYCT) and subsequently, historical records (i.e. moving image materials and photographic documentation, as well as the bulk of textual records and other documentation) were transferred from NYCT to the Archives. In 1996, the MTA directed the Museum to expand its collecting and programming activities to include all of the MTA operating agencies: New York City Transit, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, Long Island Bus, Long Island Rail Road, and Metro-North Railroad, and Capital Construction, as well as predecessor agencies. Today, the Archives is the most significant repository of transportation materials in the US.

The Archives seeks to hire a NY State certified MWBE consultant for a grant-funded project to advise in-house archives and collections management staff on the creation of a disaster preparedness and business continuity plan as well as train staff on how to respond to disaster scenarios. The consultant will provide 14 days of their time interspersed in a six-month project timeline at the rate of $1000.00 per day.
