This request for proposal (RFP) invites individual consultants or consulting firms with expertise in strategic and operational planning and reporting to submit proposals for how the Canada Council for the Arts may retain their services to develop tools and an integrated approach to planning and reporting, that will help the Council align its activities and results with its strategic goals.
The Council will publish its 2016-21 Strategic Plan in April 2016 and launch its New Funding Model in 2017. Following from this work, and to ensure achievement of the objectives of its transformation, the Council wishes to develop a new approach and toolkit to support integrated planning and reporting in the organization. This approach must be tailored to the Canada Council’s context as a Crown corporation with specific legislative and other requirements related to federal Crown corporations, and support the capacity of the organization to fulfill its legislated reporting requirements.
The selected Firm(s) shall create an approach and toolkit that will guide Council in developing and implementing its integrated approach to planning and reporting. Note that the contract does not include producing the plans or reports themselves, but to provide an overall approach and tools to enable the Council’s staff to do this work.
