  • 1.  Seeking example RFP for implementing a strategic plan

    Posted Feb 13, 2023 12:16 PM

    Hi, all!

    Does anyone have a sample RFP they would share for having a consultant help implement a library's strategic plan? Not to help craft the plan but to implement a plan that has been created. I'm just starting to investigate options and looking at academic libraries, but one for any library type would be helpful. Please share sites you may know of that collect this type of RFP. 

    Happy to connect offline if there are more questions.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Lea,

    An implementation plan may vary from developing an assessment plan, a scorecard, dashboard and metrics for goals, to identifying culture enablers and challenges, structure and restructuring, developing a growth and development plan for employees, etc.  The most typical implementation approach is developing metrics for strategic goals and the process/mechanisms to monitor and report on them on a quarterly basis.  I do not have specific RFPs I can point you to but I am glad to discuss any of the proposed next steps in more details if you wish.

    Kind regards, Martha
