Call for Proposals
“Requests for proposals” and “Requests for qualifications” are found on the Contract and Employment Opportunities page under “About FII”. This page relates to the Market Initiatives Call for Proposals only.
Market Initiatives Program
The 2013/14 Call for Proposals for Market Initiatives Program funding is now closed. FII is no longer accepting proposals for this program.
In each Call for Proposals FII evaluates proposals against standardized criteria to ensure they meet program eligibility requirements. An evaluation panel made up of industry experts, FII staff, and other government staff reviews and ranks all proposals submitted through the Online Funding System. The evaluation process is monitored by the B.C. Government’s Purchasing Services Branch to confirm that the evaluation is fair, equitable, and objective.
The panel provides recommendations for funding to the Chief Executive Officer of FII for final review and decision. FII staff will work with successful recipients to negotiate Recipient Agreements that will govern their program for that year.
FII reserves the right to modify the terms of this Call for Proposals any time at its sole discretion. This includes the right to cancel this Call for Proposals at any time prior to entering into a Contract with successful Applicants. This Call for Proposals should not be construed as an agreement to purchase goods or services or provide project funding. FII is not bound to enter into a Recipient Agreement with the Applicant who submits the lowest priced proposal, nor with any Applicant. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Call for Proposals, FII may cancel, modify or amend this Call for Proposals.
