1. INTRODUCTION
1.1 Brief Overview of the Project
The Media Relations Division is soliciting proposals from qualified consultants to
provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art media monitoring and assessment services that
will provide the Harbor Department with the ability to track news coverage, quantify and
analyze data. The Harbor Department is seeking to capture online, print, radio and TV
media in real time, with easy to use email notifications sent to key personnel with that data.
Additionally, metrics on the media hits are required, including total number of media hits,
publicity value of hits, etc.
The duration of the contract awarded as a result of this RFP is expected to be three
years from the date of execution of the agreement.
1.2 The Port of Los Angeles
The Port of Los Angeles is America’s Port®, the nation’s premier gateway for
international commerce and the busiest seaport in the Western Hemisphere. Located in
San Pedro Bay, 25 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, the Port encompasses 7,500
acres of land and water along 43 miles of waterfront.
The Port features both passenger and cargo terminals, including cruise, container,
automobile, breakbulk, dry and liquid bulk, and warehouse facilities that manage billions of
dollars’ worth of cargo each year. One of the world’s busiest seaports and leading gateway
for international trade in North America, the Port of Los Angeles has ranked as the number
one container port in the United States each year since 2000. In 2022, the Port handled a
total of 9.9 million TEUs, its second busiest calendar year on record.
The Port of Los Angeles is a department of the City of Los Angeles (also known as
the Los Angeles Harbor Department) and is governed by the Los Angeles Board of Harbor
Commissioners, a panel appointed by the Mayor of Los Angeles. Although the Port is a
City department, it is not supported by City taxes. Operating as a landlord port with more
than 200 leaseholders, the Port instead generates its revenues from leasing and shipping
service fees. The Port’s jurisdiction is limited to the Harbor District, which includes property
in San Pedro, Wilmington, and Terminal Island.
2. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
2.1 Project Goals and Objectives
As the busiest container port in North America and a worldwide driver of economic
activity, the Port of Los Angeles is consistently highlighted in the news. As a result, the
Harbor Department is seeking the services of a firm capable of providing 24/7 our
monitoring of nationwide news coverage (online, print, broadcast, and social media).
