The State Land Board occasionally releases Requests for Proposals (RFPs) initiatives such as disposition of land, leasing opportunities, and service contracts. Market-based responses for RFPs support the Board’s selection process of determining the most beneficial opportunities for the trusts in order to preserve the long-term value and income of the assets.
