Calls for Proposals
FII manages annual Calls for Proposals processes for each of its program areas (Wood First and Market Initiatives) to identify activities that match the objectives of the programs. Each Call for Proposals solicits proposals for funding through an online funding system. FII evaluates the proposals in each program against standardized criteria to ensure they meet program eligibility requirements. Evaluation panels made up of industry experts, FII staff, and other government staff review and rank all proposals submitted through the online system. The evaluation process is monitored by the B.C. Government's Purchasing Services Branch to confirm that evaluations are fair, equitable, and objective.
The panels provide recommendations for funding to the Chief Executive Officer of FII for final review and decision. FII staff work with successful recipients to negotiate a Recipient Agreement that will govern their program for the year.
FII reserves the right to modify the terms of its Calls for Proposals any time, at its sole discretion. This includes the right to cancel a Calls for Proposals at any time prior to entertaining into a Recipient Agreement with a successful application. Calls for Proposals should not be construed as an agreement to purchase goods or service, or to 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.
