Notice of Request for Proposals

In the last five years,

the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, Inc. (ASCFG) has seen an unprecedented increase in its membership. Since 2015 we have grown 154%.

This may be correlated to increased interest in all things local, as florists, wholesale buyers, and recently, brides and meeting planners search for locally-grown cut flowers, and new growers emerge to fill those needs. It has been facilitated by the ASCFG’s outreach, and our members’ social media platforms.

A recent analysis of the ASCFG’s educational offerings emphasized a strong desire for online education of these members, both new farmers, and those with many years’ experience. Given the circumstances of the world during the pandemic, the importance of online or asynchronous learning has become essential.

We are seeking a contractor with experience producing online professional programs to meet these demands. Please find the RFP and application below.

Proposals will be accepted from July 22 until a suitable application is identified. The projected date for contract commencement will be on or after August 1, 2020.

We appreciate your help in sharing this information with anyone you think might be interested in these opportunities.
