Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the Content Management RFP

  • I see your decision will be determined partially by active vendor relationships -- do you have a relationship in place currently with another vendor?

    The Springfield-Greene County Library District has worked with various Springfield vendors in the past. The Library District is always open to working with new vendors. The Library will select a vendor that will provide the best product for our needs.


  • Do you have an expected budget range? This can be vague at this stage. Do you expect the range to be closer to $15,000, $75,000, or $500,000?

    The maximum grant budget request is $40,000.


  • Is there an expectation for our team to assist with the grant process or will we enter the picture after the grant money has been awarded?

    The Springfield-Greene County Library District will write the grant application. The winning vendor will begin working with the Library District after the grant has been awarded. The Library District may follow up with vendors for additional information that may impact the grant application.
