Metro, with the Metropolitan Exposition Recreation Commission (MERC), is soliciting qualifications from potential providers of uniformed and peer t-shirt event security personnel to users of the MERC facilities.

MERC operates the Oregon Convention Center (OCC), the Portland’5 Centers for the Performing Arts (P5), Portland Metropolitan Exposition Center (Expo) and the Oregon Zoo (Zoo). MERC is interested in hearing from qualified firms that are capable of providing uniformed and peer t-shirt event security personnel directly to users of OCC, P5, Expo and Zoo facilities. MERC anticipates that it will qualify one or more firms to act as authorized non-exclusive providers of event security personnel. MERC will select firms as qualified to provide (a) uniformed event security personnel, (b) peer t-shirt security personnel, or (c) both types of services. The qualified firms will be authorized to provide the type of event security services for which they have been qualified. Qualified firms will contract directly with users of OCC, P5, Expo and the Zoo for event related security required by MERC policies and procedures.
