Ferguson Commission Opens Request for Qualifications for Core Intermediary Support

The Ferguson Commission has opened a formal Request for Qualifications [PDF] process to select a Core Intermediary – one organization or a partnership of organizations with a designated lead – to provide infrastructure and support to advance the work of the Ferguson Commission.

The Request for Qualifications reads 

The Core Intermediary will be responsible for coordinating a transparent public process to organize institutions, organizations, leaders and resources across sectors. These coordinated sectors will ultimately lead call to action implementation efforts with ongoing support from the Core Intermediary.

The RFQs will be scored by a review panel, formed by the same method as the Commission working groups. The review panel will present the Commission with up to 3 finalists. Finalists will present at a full Commission meeting, participate in a question and answer session and the final determination will be made by the Commissioners at the same meeting.

Key deadlines are:

  • October 16, 2015 – Proposals due
  • October 28, 2015 – Finalists notified
  • November 9, 2015 – Finalists present publicly at Ferguson Commission meeting, selection occurs.

Organizations interested in responding to the RFQ should review it in its entirety here [PDF].
