Purpose of Request for Proposal (RFP)

The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to engage a contractor for 12 months to translate selected AVLIC documents and materials on an as needed basis, predominantly from English to ASL but also from ASL to English, which are intended for distribution to the membership and/or stakeholders.

Services Required by the Successful Contractor

The successful Contractor will, in a timely manner, translate selected AVLIC material from written English to ASL or from ASL to written English for distribution to the AVLIC membership and/or stakeholders. Estimated turnaround time for translations should be outlined in the Proposal.

Remuneration will be pre-negotiated as part of the Contract and will be based on:

  • Per page of written English text to be translated into ASL
  • Per minute of ASL video to be translated into written English

The Contractor will translate AVLIC material on subject matters including, but not limited to:

  1. AVLIC announcements
  2. News releases
  3. Annual General Meeting proposed motions
