The Lillooet Agriculture & Food Society, a non-profit society supporting local farmers, ranchers and growers, needs a STORAGE FACILITY STRATEGIC BUSINESS PLAN and is accepting proposals in response to this Request for Proposal (this “RFP,” or this “Request for Proposal”) to find a qualified source to provide a COLD STORAGE FACILITY STRATEGIC BUSINESS PLAN. Our goal with the COLD STORAGE BUSINESS PLAN is to:
Allow stakeholders to align their business activities with the vision of the venture and to set realistic goals, as well as keep them on track and benchmark progress. The plan will allow the business enterprise to adapt quickly to a changing environment, both internally and externally, and overcome potential problems by looking to the future. The business strategy will help build consensus with stakeholders on venture direction, financial projections and building costs.
After the completion of the business plan, stakeholders would leverage this business plan to implement necessary steps and to attract more funders and partners in the enterprise.
The objective of this Request for Proposal is to locate a contractor or professional that will provide the best overall plan to the LILLOOET AGRICULTURE & FOOD SOCIETY. While price is a significant factor, other criteria will form the basis of our award decision, as more fully described in the Evaluation Factors section of this Request for Proposal here.
