CFB 232: Your Evaluation RFP is Terrible! A Guide for Evaluators and their Clients - Corey Newhouse

Thursday December 3rd, 2015 2-2:20 PM 

RFPs for evaluation services are usually terrible. They read like Mad Libs of contract language and evaluation jargon, and almost never provide evaluators with all the information they need to respond. Most evaluation RFPs can be transformed with just a few(ish) pieces of information, all of which is already in-house at most organizations. In this Coffee Break webinar, the guide's author will share the step-by-step instructions to prepare an RFP that will yield high-quality evaluation proposals and stronger evaluation services.

This new workbook will reflect real-time changes made to its connected Sheets. If you are using Google for data collection, this is a simple way to monitor the data you are collecting and to create the foundations for reports and dashboards.

This webinar will,

2. Demonstrate the “Importrange” function;
