DENVER: The University of Colorado has issued an RFP to implement a communications plan on behalf of the Presidential Climate Action Project (PCAP).
The PCAP is a university-led initiative to bring the global warming issue to the forefront of the presidential campaigns.
David Turner, CU purchasing agent in charge of the RFP, said its budget is undetermined.
The scope of the work includes design and content work on the group's Web site and marketing materials, preparation of candidate-focused materials, stakeholder engagement work, and media relations.
The RFP is phase two of the group's communications work; earlier, Burson-Marsteller completed a strategic planning phase, which was a separate project.
Turner said that he does not know if CU has received any proposals thus far. The deadline is October 12, and the account is likely to be awarded by early November, according to Turner.
PCAP seeks concrete commitments for anti-global warming actions from Presidential candidates for their first 100 days, first 1,000 days, and what they plan in their first budget.
