The International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) is undertaking a global change initiative designed to deliver a strong International organisation and strong regional bodies.

As part of the global change initiative, the International Board established the Global
Practice Development Committee (GPDC), whose purpose is to support the ongoing
development of the practice.

Among the tasks assigned to the GPDC is development of a coherent, integrated set of IAP2-branded courses that builds off the courses already offered by IAP2 at the international and/or regional levels.

There are currently two IAP2-branded 5-day entry-level programs being delivered in the marketplace that offer skills and understanding in public participation/engagement: the Foundations in Public Participation course and the Certificate of Engagement course.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) supports the GPDC’s objectives to
1. Develop an integrated learning pathway that articulate the development of a
professional from entry level to advanced standing
2. Develop a single, entry-level, IAP2-branded program that is suitable for delivery
across all IAP2 markets.
3. Develop a suite of complementary programs and modules that extend the learning
beyond the entry level

Closing Date: Friday, December 13, 2019
