The Wolastoqey Tribal Council (WTCI) is seeking proposals for the development of Emergency Management Plans for all our communities. WTCI worked with a consultant and developed Needs Assessment, Threat Risk Vulnerability Assessment and Way Forward Document which will be available. It is expected the successful consultant will continue the project with existing information from previous reports. We are seeking an experienced Consultant to develop the Emergency Management Plans for the communities considering the components of prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.The plans will include including Emergency Management Plan for the organization based on feedback from key stakeholders. The successful proposal will need to demonstrate a strong track record of success in developing Strategic Plans as well as experience working with First Nation Organizations.
Emergency Plan development should include:
Identifying community assets.
Hazard identification and assessment.
Administration of the plan.
Emergency response procedures.
Communication of the procedure.
Debriefing and post-traumatic stress procedure.
The final product of an Emergency Plan for each community is expected and each community will have the plan including an electronic format for updating. It is also expected there will be individual paper copies in binders of the entire community plan for each section of the community administration sections such as Health Services, Child and Family, Public Works, Administration, Security, School, Finance, etc.
Required Items for inclusion into the proposal:
• Work outline and methodology
• Qualifications and demonstrated experience
• Cost and timing
Preference will be given to those organizations/bidders that show a willingness to build capacity within Wolastoqey communities for example: hiring community members, giving back to the community, volunteering in community etc. or can demonstrate how they build community capacity in their everyday work.
Submissions are due on or before May 31, 2022, at midnight. No submissions will be accepted after this date. The proposal selection will take place once financing is secured by proposal to Indigenous Services Canada by WTCI and applicants will be notified of the decision.
