No Call for Bis yet for 2011 and 2012
2011-01-03 05:40:32 GMT
All - we have a big issue –
WFDF has not been able to call for Bids for Events in 2011 and 2012.
WFDF is a year late with the call for 2012 World Ultimate Championship and World Guts Championship. (AOUC2011 is also on the to do list)
While I don’t want to go into detail of why this has not been done(as I described the challenge within WFDF Board in an earlier email), the story in short is that we have decided to create a very good, detailed Bid Manual. WFDF hired a person to create this manual. Both the hiring process as well as the creation took too long and now that the Manual is basically finished, the Board cannot agree to use the document as it could use some further improvements.
Our problem is however time. We have received a rather complete, very strong Bid 8 months ago with the bidders asking WFDF again and again to close the bidding process by the end of the year so that they can get the government funds to create a great event at minimal cost.
WFDF Board has not been able to get the calls for Bids out and even now, a year past our initial deadline, the Board members that decided against using the document don’t propose an alternative.
We basically already ran out of time – but for some Board members the process is more important than solving and immediate issue.
While our new Bid Manual may need some further improvement, it is still a great guideline and will help Bidders immensely.
As we have asked for interested parties I would now like to urge all parties to try and get a Preliminary Bid to WFDF by January 15. If you are nowhere near finishing your bid, please let us know your timeline. On request I will gladly send you the preliminary Bid Manual (though it has not yet been approved and is only a guideline to help you move forward.)
This is NOT an official call as it is not sanctioned by WDFD Board – but it is necessary that we move forward with this topic.
Regards and a Happy New Year
