A coalition of community and social service agencies, the Rocky & District Services Network, wanted to develop a community portal for important announcements, upcoming events and volunteer recruitment purposes. They needed a well constructed proposal document to send out for project bids.

Based on document reviews, meetings, telephone interviews and surveys, Pleasant Solutions created a high-level project proposal, as well as a timeline and milestones to guide the bidding and evaluation criteria for submissions.

We understand how important it is to have a clear plan before proceeding.
