Project Goals and Scope of Services:
With the recent move of our inaugural Executive Director into a part-time role, GUCDC is seeking support with the organization’s executive transition plan, in order to position GUCDC to best implement our mission, serve the Germantown community, and improve operations to maximize efficiency.
We seek consultancy support to conduct an intensive assessment of GUCDC’s organizational structure, financial position and management systems, operational processes and policies, programmatic initiatives, and stakeholder perspectives as they relate to GU’s mission.
Following the assessment we seek a comprehensive report that provides feedback and recommendations to support the organization through an executive transition, including an analysis of the organization’s financial position and recommendations for financial restructuring, human resource planning and staffing needs, the streamlining of administrative systems, mechanisms for reporting and communications, and organizational structure and culture overall. The report should include activities, goals, timeline and projected costs.
The consultant will have the support of GU’s small but dedicated team, which includes (3) full-time employees and a volunteer board of directors comprised of Germantown residents and representatives of local business, educational and service institutions.
