Proposal Writing Workshop

Have you ever found an opportunity on BC Bid that looked perfect for your organization, but writing a submission to it was overwhelming? Or maybe you’ve participated in some RFPs, but aren’t sure how the award was made. If this sounds familiar – or you are just interested in learning more about how the Province awards contracts – join us for a one-day workshop lead by Liz Busch, the principle author of the Short-Form RFP template and guidance, as well as many of the pages found on BC Bid Resources.
This workshop will include evaluating proposals using the government’s process, which will help you to understand the process in order to write better proposals.
Be sure to come prepared! In order to keep this workshop to just one day, all participants will be expected to read a few pages from the BC Bid Resources website to give the background needed for the exercises.

Comments from our February 1st Workshop

 

  • Really enjoyed the group activities & Liz is a fabulous educate, she really knows her stuff & gets it across with enthusiasm & humour.
  • Great view from the “other” side; the Ministry’s perspective. Very helpful especially the case studies.
  • Made a boring topic engaging.
  • Seeing an RFP process on a different side of the fence I can see why there is so much work that goes into the review of them. A better understanding of this process will allow me to take a proactive approach when our next RFP submission is available.
  • Fast pace with succinct explanation. Case studies allow us to put into practice what we’ve learned/discussed.
