Washington, D.C. – Martin Nesbitt, Chair of The Barack Obama Foundation made the following statement regarding responses to the Foundation’s Request for Qualifications:

“We appreciate the time, effort, and planning that have gone into the 13 responses we’ve received to the Foundation’s Request for Qualifications. These ideas will ultimately help us build a library that reflects President Obama’s priorities and values throughout his life and career, and makes our whole nation proud. We will run a level and fair process to evaluate how well each response captures the vision and goals of the future Obama Presidential Library, and based on what we see, the Foundation will identify a short-list of potential partners to receive a Request for Proposal later this summer.”
