The District 1199C Training & Upgrading Fund has issued this request for proposals to solicit the services and recommendations of an expert consultant who can facilitate leadership coaching and organizational change. 

Our staff-led Transformation Committee, who authored this document, will work with this outside consultant to develop a supportive staffing structure and organizational design that will position the Training Fund for a thriving future—meeting the needs of its Philadelphia members and communities. This work will involve incorporating relevant HR policies, defining shared practices that nurture a safe and trauma-informed environment for students and staff, and a talent pipeline that reflects, includes and celebrates the diversity of our organization’s student/staff community. We anticipate and understand that this transition and restructuring process will be complex, but also recognize that it is necessary to help us reach a better and stronger position as an agency that not only values but embodies diversity, equity, inclusion and opportunity for all as we move forward.

PROJECT SUMMARY: This request for proposals solicits a dynamic consultant or consultancy firm, experienced working with complex non-profit agencies, facilitating significant organizational change and designing HR plans and practices to move our agency redesign forward over the course of 8-10 months. Consultants should prepare a budget in the range of $15,000-20,000 to complete this project by December 2020 (please note: completion date subject to change based on the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic).

A letter of intent to apply is requested, but not required. Letters of intent should be received by no later than 5:00 PM (Eastern) on Friday, May 29th, 2020. The deadline for full applications is 11:59 PM (Eastern) on June 16th, 2020.
