What Does a Good Transition Plan RFP/RFQ Look Like? **

Tuesday, July 21, 2020
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Time Zone


Join us for this 90 minute session which will discuss what entities should consider when preparing governmental Request for Qualifications (RFQ) or Request for Proposals (RFP) to do or update their Transition Plan. Participants will understand the critical components of a well-written RFP to assure that the final product is a meaningful and actionable plan. During the session, participants will be provided with examples of both poorly and well-written RFPs, highlighting possible pitfalls and how to avoid vague and limited responses. The session will explore the following questions and more:

  1. What deliverables will assure that you end up with a good plan in the end?

  2. How do items that you include (or don’t include) in your RFP affect responses you receive?

  3. Who will make up your RFP evaluation team? What information should you provide to applicants so that you receive the best responses possible?

Questions for presenters:

1 I have conducted some research on Request For Qualifications (RFQ) and Request For Proposals (RFP). How does the Request For Qualifications (RFQ) and Request For Proposals (RFP) apply to ADA compliance? Also, are there certain steps that must be included with the Transition Plan?
2 What are the basic attributes of a ROW RFQ?
3 My city government has no ADA coordinator, no current transition plan, an old 2013 plan that mostly talks about curb cuts and recently public works department told city council that it would take 44 years (not a typo) to complete the curb cut work. As far as I can tell, there is no plan to update the inadequate and outdated plan, to budget for any accessibility requirements under ADA Title II, and no intention of doing anything about any of it. Meanwhile, they have built and remodeled public buildings in violation of ADA law, and admit it, but fail to act. What can I present to them to encourage compliance, send out an ADA compliance RFQ, RFP, and actually commit to things legally required, including closed captioning for all public meetings?
