COVID-19 is forcing many to rethink organizational communications, including communications for policy, advocacy and organizing work, fundraising, community engagement and much more. This RFP is a solicitation for an organization or individual/consultant to create and coordinate a learning and technical assistance (TA) series for COO community-based organizations to develop and strengthen communications skills and strategies. The learning series may include activities that are progressively designed to build on one another and/or stand-alone events and activities. Facilitation and content/curricula may be subcontracted. The Communications Capacity Building Lead will lead planning, coordination and documentation of a series of capacity building activities with COO grantees and aligned organizations (COO).
Individuals, organizations (non-profit, private, and public corporations), or teams with demonstrated expertise to perform the scope of work are eligible to apply.
Investment Available and Contract Term
Up to $75,000 is available and includes coordination and implementation costs. Implementation costs may be moved to COO Learning Community Administrator if applicant lacks ability to make direct payments. The contract term is for 14 months (11/1/20 – 12/31/21), with an option to increase or extend depending on funding availability, contractor performance, and project need.
