Rocky Mountain Institute and Carbon War Room often participate in projects or operations (referred to generically here as “projects”) where goods and/or services are procured by an entity, governmental or otherwise, that similarly engages us. In some cases, a project requires us to procure goods and/or services directly from third parties. In connection with the procurement of these goods and/or services, Rocky Mountain Institute and Carbon War Room have established procedures intended to promote transparency, ensure fair competition, and increase the effectiveness of goods and services procured, all to ensure that funds granted for any specific project are used appropriately and efficiently. A copy of our Procurement Procedures is available here. The Procurement Procedures may be updated from time to time.
For each project where the procurement of goods or services will be required, a general procurement notice for the project will be shown below (or on a publicly-accessible website established for the purposes of administering the project), in advance of any procurement. The purpose of this notice is to make aware any interested eligible vendors, consultants, and bidders who wish to be included on the mailing list to receive Requests for Proposals, Invitations to Bid, and Requests for Quotations and Qualifications to be supported under the project or those requiring additional information about the project.
