Proposals must be submitted via email to Nathan King, campus sustainability manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) on the official Green RFP proposal form. Proposals are due on Dec. 11, 2023 by 5 p.m.
Proposals should be thorough, but concise. They should clearly state what the problem is (the current state of whatever it is the project is meant to improve), a clear budget, other funding sources, and any potential cost savings. Additionally, students are required to get approval from a university official from the department that will receive the project. For example, if the project is in the Residence Halls, then the student must get approval from an official in Residential Experience.
In order to be successful, students and student groups must make sure that their budgets are correct, that the department to which the project is going approves of the project, and that the writing is detailed, including specifics on project implementation timelines, costs, and special needs.
Submitted proposals are reviewed by the Office of Sustainability and submitted to the Climate Action, Sustainability, and Energy Committee for consideration. The committee prioritizes the proposals and forwards their recommendations to the Office of Budget and Financial Planning for further review, approval, and funding consideration.
