Proposer Questions and Answers (updated 12/13/19):
Question 1: Does US Ignite currently work with a PR firm and if they will be bidding?
Answer 1: It is US Ignite’s stated policy to re-bid contracts for ongoing service providers (e.g., auditing, marketing, legal) at least once every few years to ensure fair and reasonable pricing. That — the timing out of our existing contract per our internal policy guidance — is the reason for this RFP. The incumbent marketing/PR firm was invited to respond to this RFP, as well as a dozen other marketing/PR firms in the Washington, DC area.
Question 2: Please clarify the page numbers for the Proposer Information and References section. Should there only be one page for the following items: a) primary contact information, b) description of the organization, c) three professional references?
Answer 2: Items a-c are limited to one page TOTAL. Resumes (item d) are limited to one page for each proposed staff member.
