I believe the TDSB would have found it worthwhile to engage with a consulting firm before issuing the RFP.
This would have enabled the TSBD to clearly assess a real business model before hand, identify real advertising options and verticals that could be pursued, perhaps even allocate a nominal budget to off-set the capital requirements from an operational budget so emergency notifications can be implemented.
I have not read the RFP, nor do I want to but I can tell by the snippet I read in the post it was most likely written by a cheeky little bugger who wants to protect their job by having have a vendor take all the risk.
I know the TSBD is hurting for money, but this is not the way to go about raising more.
