San Mateo Food System Alliance Network Manager Services
Request for Proposals (RFP)


The County of San Mateo is seeking proposals from any and all qualified organizations and individuals to provide Network Manager Services to coordinate and manage the San Mateo Food System Alliance (SMFSA). The purpose of the RFP is to identify a contractor that will provide Network Manager Services for the SMFSA. The SMFSA brings together stakeholders representing all aspects of the local food system, including agricultural producers, urban food growers, anti-hunger groups, institutional food service providers, nutrition education professionals, and those working on policies that impact the local food system and economy. Since the SMFSA was established in 2006, the work to bring together stakeholders has been led using a facilitated model. In response to the recommendation in the recently completed Vision for a San Mateo County Food and Farm Bill, San Mateo County Health and San Mateo County Office of Sustainability, who provide the core funding, in partnership with the SMFSA members has decided to shift from a facilitated model to a Network Manager model.

Responses should be submitted via the Public Purchase website. In order to view the RFP and submit a proposal, you must first create an account with Public Purchase.
