Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Summit Invitation for Proposal IFP 2020-CC-800:
Amended Procedures for Submitting Proposals and Required Forms
In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council, Inc. is amending procedures for submitting proposals and required forms for Invitation for Proposal (IFP 2020-CC-800) Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Summit released on Friday, March 6, 2020.
The changes replace the required procedures for submission of the proposals. Specifically, FDDC is no longer requiring that proposals be submitted via U.S. Mail with an original proposal and seven hard copies and attachments. Instead, proposers must submit one electronically signed and dated proposal via FDDC’s Dropbox. All required forms must still be signed and dated, either electronically or via execution in writing and scanned for electronic submission.
Again, these changes require proposers to submit their proposals electronically through Dropbox.
No changes are being made to due dates. All proposals must be received by 4:00 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, April 6, 2020. Please allow enough time to upload your proposal into the FDDC’s Dropbox. Depending on the size of the proposal, it may take a while to upload. Any proposals received after the date and time set forth above will be considered unresponsive and will not be considered by FDDC.
All other provisions in the original Invitation for Proposal, IFP 2020-CC-800, not in conflict with this addendum are still in effect and are to be followed as specified in the Invitation for Proposal.
Details, including provisions for related questions, are provided in the Addendum #1 link below.
