You'll learn about:

 

  • Ethical responsibilities of public- and private-sector planners when writing RFPs and submitting proposals
  • Best practices for communication, bidding, interacting with colleagues and friends, and more
  • Real world examples of what to do when faced with difficult circumstances

The facilitated discussion on The Ethics of RFPs at the 2015 NPC was a great success, with a packed house and standing room only. Attendees reported that this was a fascinating topic that they deal with every day, but never realized how it connected to the AICP Code of Ethics.  

This session will be a continuation of the previous facilitated discussion, with a focus on the ethical responsibilities of planners in the very real world of bidding for and awarding work. We'll compare the multiple components of the proposal process to the AICP Code of Ethics from the point of view of planners in both the public (those letting planning contracts) and private sectors (those bidding on contracts).

 

Areas of focus will include communication, bidding, interacting with colleagues and friends, and more.  This session will include real world examples for group discussion of both the recommended practice and what to do when faced with difficult circumstances.
