Request for Proposal – 2023


Consulting Services for Organizational Development


The Ohio Olmstead Task Force (OOTF) is seeking proposals from qualified consulting firms to provide comprehensive development and strategy services. OOTF is a non-profit organization that advocates for the right of people with disabilities to live and work in the community.

OOTF holds monthly meetings, organizes advocacy events, hosts discussions on policy impacting people with disabilities’ rights to live independently, and coordinates grassroots advocacy. Currently, OOTF is run entirely by volunteers. To sustain consistent momentum and increase advocacy, OOTF aims to hire a paid part- or full-time coordinator. The coordinator would be responsible for finding and applying for grants, maintaining consistent outreach (social media, emails, website) and performing admin duties. OOTF is looking for a consultant to help us identify initial grants, develop a strong internal structure, and prepare strategic objectives for taking the next step of hiring a coordinator.

Project budget: Not to exceed $10,000

Timeframe: Substantial completion within six months of contract execution
