Consulting Services to Write a Grant Policies and Procedures Manual

This Request for Proposals ("RFP") is issued April 24, 2003 to identify a qualified consultant to assist the Administrative Office of the Courts ("AOC") in writing a grant policies and procedures manual.

The AOC manages over 30 grant programs totaling over $72 million annually. These programs are a combination of pass-through grants, outgoing grants originating with the AOC, and incoming grants (primarily federal) to the AOC as grantee. Most of the AOC grants are outgoing grants made to superior courts throughout California. Because of the complexity of funding sources and procedures for both internal and external grants, there is a need for a comprehensive manual to assist the AOC and the courts with their grants management responsibilities.

The AOC seeks to identify and retain a qualified service provider to write the comprehensive Grants Policies and Procedures Manual. The RFP is the means for prospective service providers to submit their qualifications to the AOC and request selection as a consultant.

Consultants are asked to submit proposals by May 5, 2003. The project will need to be completed by August 31, 2003.

For further information regarding this RFP, please contact Lucy Smallsreed, Grants Administration Program, Administrative Office of the Courts, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California, 94102. Telephone: 415-865-7705;
