STATE LOBBYING SERVICE  REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

Counties & Commissioners Acting Together (CCAT) was formed in 2016 as a coalition of counties and commissioners seeking to influence major policy debates that impact the lives and well-being of local communities. In 2023 CCAT completed its transition to an independent state non-profit corporation. CCAT is a consensus-driven organization that works to find common ground between counties that share values on pressing statewide issues.  The consensus-driven approach is unique and promotes commonality and support for policies that benefit the entire state, versus strictly regional advances.

 

CCAT members believe that the Colorado General Assembly must hear directly from local leaders who interface daily within their communities, are responsible for delivering public benefits and have the pulse of what is needed to promote a strong quality of life for Colorado residents. CCAT provides an additional voice for county and local government interests in statewide policy debates - working alongside and adding to the chorus of strong local government interests active at the statehouse. 

 

CCAT is staffed by an Executive Director and Associate Director who facilitate CCAT’s organizational positions on all legislative matters. Both are registered lobbyists empowered to advocate on the organization's behalf. 

 

Through this RFP, Counties & Commissioners Acting Together (CCAT) is seeking proposals from experienced individuals and/or government relations firms to provide limited state lobbying services (as described in the document linked below) for the organization, including representation, information, professional advice, and support services.  

 

For details on CCAT’s guiding principles and other general information about the organization which is currently made up of commissioners from 22 different counties across the state please review the CCAT’s website. 

ONLY ELECTRONIC RFPS SUBMITTED BY AUGUST 5 AT 5:00 PM WILL BE ACCEPTED

 

Please E-Mail both the Executive Director & Associate Director your final submissions: 

 

 

Prospective proposers may make written or verbal inquiries by email, cell phone, or in person before the written proposal deadline concerning this RFP to obtain clarification of requirements. The purpose of this outreach could be to provide assistance to interested firms in the interpretation of the Request for Proposal (RFP), Scope of Services, and other technical and contractual matters. 

Please review the attached CCAT RPF Document for additional details on the scope of services, proposer requirements, and solicitation process.
