I thought some readers might be interested both in the contract and the RFP in case anyone was looking at a similar project…
The City of Minneapolis Information Technology (IT) Department is soliciting proposals from qualified consultants for professional surveying services to plan and conduct a series of surveys of Minneapolis residents regarding computer and internet use. The surveys are referred to as the Minneapolis Community Technology Surveys and are primarily used to determine the state of the digital divide in Minneapolis.
IT conducted a Community Technology Survey in 2012, 2013, and 2014. IT would like to continue the survey over the next several years to continue to measure changes in the community over time.
IT is seeking proposals from a variety of research firms to evaluate current professional research options and opportunities within the surveying industry as part of the extended commitment to this project.
The desired contract period will be up to six (6) years to conduct up to three (3) resident surveys. Responding to this Request for Proposals shall not be construed as a guarantee of work under the Scope of Services or of any total dollar amount of compensation.
