For eligibility information, please review our Market Initiatives and Wood First funding program pages and read the eligibility section carefully.

Evaluation Process

1.

Proposals will be evaluated against standardized criteria to ensure they meet program eligibility requirements. An evaluation panel made up of representatives from the funding organization(s) and independent experts will review and rank all proposals submitted through the Online Funding System. The evaluation process will be monitored by the BC Government’s Citizens Services Branch to ensure that the evaluation is fair, equitable, and objective.

2.

The panel will provide recommendations for funding to FII’s President & CEO for final review and decision. All proponents will be advised of their evaluation outcome in early February 2022, and FII staff will work with successful proponents to negotiate Recipient Agreements that will govern their program for that year.

3.

FII reserves the right to modify the terms of this Call for Proposals 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 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. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Call for Proposals, FII may cancel, modify or amend this Call for Proposals.
