Comments:
REVISED AWARD - The original award notice had an incorrect total contract amount. The correct total contract amount will be $42,000. As this was not the low proposal, this project was awarded to Cambridge for the following reason:

We sought a process that guides planners to think creatively about new possibilities and so results in a plan for transformation, versus incremental improvement...and that includes the training needed to enable planning team members to do true "possibilities" planning, which they likely have not done before.

The Looram proposal's bid includes a short training session designed only to "describe the role of team members, the decision process that will be used, and the communication procedures to be followed." In other words, the training proposed is merely process training. In contrast, The Cambridge Group's proposal provides a three-day intensive training session on strategic thinking--exactly the kind of training we asked for in our RFP.

The Looram proposal offers the strategic planning process for $27,200, and the Cambridge proposal offers it for $23,500. Cambridge also proposed the training we need for $18,500; Looram did not propose this training.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.

The goal of this project is the creation of a strategic plan that represents the input of all constituencies IMSA serves; that will provide a unifying strategic focus, measurable objectives and action plans for IMSA for the coming three years; and that will give guidance to the institution for many years beyond.
