We all want to add the technology sizzle to our proposals. Nothing wins an RFP these days like “e” this or “m” that. Yet ICT projects are complicated, and hasty technology additions in proposals often leave implementers struggling to achieve project milestones after the contract is won.
At the next Technology Salon, we’ll have Linda Raftree, Social Media and New Technology Advisor for Plan International West Africa Region and ICT4D Technical Advisor for Plan USA, lead us through a design methodology for successful ICT projects that you can use as a guide in your next RFP response.
For those that want to read ahead, Linda will be drawing on the recent Plan report, ICT Enabled Development: Using ICT strategically to support Plan’s work, and tailoring it to the proposal process, with your participation and input.
Please join her and your Technology Salon peers to share insights on how to incorporate ICT projects into future proposals at our next meeting:
How to Incorporate ICT into Proposals

UN Foundation Conference Room
1800 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20036 (map)
We’ll have hot coffee and Krispe Kreme donuts for a morning rush, but seating is limited and the UN Foundation is in a secure building. So the first fifteen (15) to RSVP will be confirmed attendance and then there will be a waitlist.
