Request for Proposals




In an effort to provide established and aspiring women entrepreneurs with access to quality skills development opportunities regardless of geographic location, the Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs (NLOWE) is launching a one-on-one training initiative for business women in Southern Labrador.  The training will consist of one-on-one Simply Accounting training that will increase the business development and management skills of participants.


The successful applicant will be required to travel to Southern Labrador and train five (5) business women on computerized accounting, in particular Simply Accounting software and proper filing systems. One-on-one in-person training will be delivered over a two week period. The training will require the following:

  • Pre-training phone call with each participant to determine specific individual training needs (5hrs).   
  • Travel to Southern Labrador, i.e. Port Hope Simpson, Lodge Bay, Mary's Harbour, Red Bay, or L'Anse au Loup.
  • 75hrs of training time (15hrs, two days per participant)
  • One hour 'follow-up' via phone/email for questions on Simply Accounting. (5hrs)


While the expertise of the applicant and the quality of work produced will be important in the selection process, NLOWE is a non-profit organization with limited resources, and as such, cost will also be an important consideration.


Following the delivery of this training, there are plans to organize future, topic-specific training at a variety of skill levels including intermediate and advanced.  The successful applicant should also indicate their ability to facilitate future training on a go-forward basis.


Training MUST be completed by November 30, 2011.


Interested parties are asked to submit a proposal outlining their qualifications, experience, samples of previous, related work, their ability to deliver, proposed timelines, and associated costs by the proposal deadline of October 5, 2011.


Please ensure the proposal includes the following information:

  • Resume outlining your qualifications and experience in this area
  • Three recent references
  • Demonstrated ability to deliver
  • Associated costs (if any)
