RFO on Changing Funding Practices
Q: Will the contractor have access to existing
documents such as the Environmental Scan?
A: Yes. Many background documents are already
on the VSI website. The contractor will also be given two existing PowerPoint
presentation files--one for funders and one for fundees--as well as
18 cases illustrating best practices in IM/IT in the voluntary sector.
Basically, the IM/IT Secretariat is looking for an organization that
will coordinate meetings between leaders of the voluntary sector and
leaders of the funding community and provide support.
Q: The IM/IT Joint Table minutes of May
29, 2002, indicated that $200,000 would be allocated to the "Changing
Funding Practices" deliverable. Is this the maximum amount allocated
to this RFP?
A: The IM/IT Secretariat did not allocate any
ceiling to this RFP, with the specific intent of encouraging competition.
The $200,000 mentioned in the deliberations could serve as an indication.
Q: Is this RFP applicable to all provinces
Q: Are federal departments part of the target
groups that will be approached to permit IM/IT investments?
A: No. The Voluntary Sector Forum will approach
federal departments in a separate project.
Q: Are the business cases available to applicants?
A: The business cases will only be available
to the successful applicant.
