For the last 48 years, the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay has been bringing together communities, companies, and conservationists to restore the lands and waters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. In 2018, the Alliance hired a third-party consultant to complete a Growth Capacity Assessment for the organization. Their analysis determined that the Alliance has grown rapidly in the last three years, and that we have outgrown our current communication structure and systems. In order for us to increase our visibility, impact, and reach, the Alliance needs to create and operationalize a new set of internal and external communication standards and processes, and improve and expand our use of current communications technology.
Currently, the Alliance is wrapping up the implementation of our 2019 Strategic Communications Plan. We are seeking assistance in creating a new set of internal and external communication processes that can be implemented throughout our regional organization. It should be noted that this process is funded at a not-to-exceed amount of $10,000. We are seeking estimates of the work proposed through this RFP. The Alliance would like to see proposals that provide an overall project budget.
