The Continuous Improvement Fund (CIF) has released its 2013 Operations Plan with information about progress in Ontario recycling over the past several years, and details about new funding opportunities for 2013.
REOI for 2013 Project Funding Coming Soon
With nearly $12 million in funding to support projects that address key priorities outlined in the 2013 Operations Plan, the CIF will soon release a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) as a means to apply to the CIF. The REOI provides a simple mechanism for municipalities to bring best ideas to the table to address key issues of importance in blue box recycling in Ontario.
Already more than a dozen municipalities and contractors have expressed interest in responding to the REOI, with innovative and insightful suggestions as to how to address 2013 priorities for continuous improvement in recycling.
Start Your Planning Early; Contact CIF Staff Members for Assistance
All municipalities are encouraged to review the 2013 Operations Plan and begin project planning for 2013. CIF staff invites questions, comments and suggestions. They are available to provide assistance, especially in the early stages, as you consider how your project priorities can contribute to continuous improvement for Ontario's recycling system.
Locating the REOI
The REOI will be posted on the CIF website in the "News and Views" section under the heading Procurement. They will email all stakeholders immediately when it is available.
For more information, please contact Alec Scott by phone: (705) 722-0225 or firstname.lastname@example.org before the April 30 inquiry deadline.
