JOINT ANIMAL SERVICES COMMISSION - REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
MEETING FACILITATION FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING RETREAT
The Joint Animal Services Commission (JASCOM) is requesting proposals from firms to provide meeting facilitation services to support JASCOM’s annual strategic planning retreat on July 19, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Each year, JASCOM holds a strategic planning retreat during which JASCOM synthesize their individual ideas with staff recommendations in order to arrive upon a broad consensus that serves as a framework for Joint Animal Services (JAS) in the coming year. JASCOM hires a professional meeting facilitator to organize and facilitate the JASCOM’s strategic planning retreat in order to maximize the productivity of this meeting and to allow JASCOM to move through multiple discussions of complicated topics over the course of a half-day, typically in the summer.
Responses to this RFP will be evaluated based on the facilitator’s experience, qualifications, price, fit with the JAS’s organizational culture, and demonstrated understanding of the Scope of Work. The selected firm will be responsible for working with staff to develop a detailed agenda for the 2021 JASCOM Strategic Planning Retreat in order to deliver a dynamic experience that results in a clear strategic planning direction for JAS in the coming year, as well as for the next five years (2021-2026). The facilitator must be fluent and experienced with both in-person and online strategic planning formats.
Please email all questions relating to this RFP to email@example.com no later than Friday, June 25, 2021, by 4:00 p.m. JAS will provide answers to any questions, which in the opinion of JAS warrant a written reply or RFP addendum, to all parties receiving this RFP. JAS will not respond to questions received after the deadline listed on the estimated schedule.
Proposals must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 1, 2021. No faxed or mailed submittals will be accepted. Any submittals received after the deadline will not be considered. JAS assumes no obligations of any kind for expenses incurred by any respondent to this solicitation.
