Request for Proposal: Strategic Planning Development

Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre (DPNCHC) is soliciting requests for proposals (RFP) for a facilitated service to support us in the development of our next strategic plan. We are in a transitional period and wish to explore if we should renew our current strategic plan or develop a new plan. 



DPNCHC is a multi-service community agency providing programs and services to diverse participants who are marginalized due to socioeconomic barriers. We work from a community development and health promotion perspective. We are in the last year of a five-year strategic plan and are seeking a consultant to support the development of our next strategic plan. In 2019, we developed a Theory of Change, which continues to frame our work; including:

  • Who we serve
  • How we work

  • Our intended impacts

Scope of Work:

DPNCHC is seeking to identify and select an independent, qualified consultant to undertake the following tasks in collaboration with a committee of staff and the Board:

  • Facilitate strategic planning discussions with staff and the Board to assess and recommend updates to the mission, vision, values, and strategic outcomes.
  • Support our determination of whether we should renew the current plan or develop a new three to five-year plan.
  • If we develop a new plan, provide a Strategic Plan for three to five years that defines key strategic priorities, the objectives that define them and the expected outcomes. Include a one-page overview for socialization amongst the community.
  • Provide a Strategic Plan implementation plan with performance measures and evaluation metrics that can be tracked by management and the Board.
  • Consider financial implications based on the above and identify funding/financing gaps.
