GLIN==> Request for Proposals: Great Lakes Commission Strategic Review and Organizational Assessment

Dear Friend of the Great Lakes:

The Great Lakes Commission is soliciting proposals to conduct a strategic
review and organizational assessment of the Commission's role and
effectiveness in serving the Great Lakes states and provinces.  Based in Ann
Arbor, Mich., the Great Lakes Commission is an interstate compact agency
with a binational mission serving the Great Lakes states and provinces. The
organization promotes sound public policy on issues involving the use,
protection and management of the water and related natural resources of the
Great Lakes Basin and St. Lawrence River.  

The strategic review and organizational assessment is expected to accomplish
three principal tasks.  First, it will provide essential guidance to the
Commission's members before they undertake a search process to fill the
currently vacant Executive Director position.  Specifically, the review and
assessment will help define the desired qualifications, roles,
responsibilities and expectations for this position.  Second, the review and
assessment will provide the Commissioners with important information about
the organization's current activities and programmatic focus as it serves
member states and provinces, and the broader region.  Finally, it will
contribute to a strategic planning process which the Commission began in
2003, and will culminate in September 2005.

Interested applicants should prepare a brief (5 pages or less) proposal for
conducting a strategic review and organizational assessment of the Great
Lakes Commission.  Specific proposal guidelines are included in the attached
request for proposals (RFP).  The RFP will also be posted on the Great Lakes
Commission's website: www.glc.org

Applications must be received at the office of the Great Lakes Commission by
5:00 p.m. (EDT) June 1, 2005.  Questions regarding this RFP should be
directed to Interim Executive Director Tom Crane; contact information is
included within the RFP.
Thomas Huntley, Ph.D.
