Process

We work on a scope and bid process. Key factors in constructing a proposal include:

  • Source and cost of mentors: do we provide the mentors, are these organizational representatives, or are they paid from other sources?
  • Degree and scope of organizational participation (turnkey or collaboration).
  • Delivery model: classroom, blended, or online.
  • The scope of implementation, training, and support.
  • The number of mentors and students in concurrent enrollment.
  • Instructional materials required.
  • Agreement on pricing structure and scholarship offsets.
  • External funding sources (grants, etc.).
  • Future growth and participation opportunities.
