ICE RFP for Market Research Services
Topic: RFP Library
Owner: Sam Quinan
Date: 2018-01-12

The goal of this RFP is to gain insight from a large sample of healthcare and strength and fitness candidates and credential holders through a study of the value they place on certification. Despite the criticality of certification in healthcare and strength and fitness, the large number of organizations and many studies examining this topic, there has never been an attempt to perform a sector wide study. These sectors were chosen because their certifications are largely voluntary, not required to practice in many cases, so the value of certification plays a large role in adoption.

Please submit all questions by January 31, 2018. Responses to all question provided by February 10, 2018.

Proposals due: February 20, 2018

Vendor Selected: March 1, 2018
