TORs for Business Plan development


RPIC desires an evergreening business plan to support its vision, mission and strategic plan; provide focus for its operational activities; and facilitate stakeholder engagement, communications and key messaging as part of its development. The principle focuses are:

  1. support the development of RPIC as a community and as a federal real property network with academia, public and private sectors;
  2. facilitating stakeholder readiness, engagement, buy-in and ownership as RPIC advocates;
  3. continuously increasing the breadth and depth of stakeholder involvement via timely communications and relevant feedback;
  4. developing, testing and refining key messages (i.e., in the language of key stakeholders) to further increase stakeholder adoption and action;
  5. aligning project design and development activities with organizational culture, operational and financial resources for increase performance and action learning.
