Request for Proposal

Proposal Description:

Restart Partners is assisting the Washington State Department of Commerce’s US EDA Safe Start Project grant by providing education and practical tools in appropriate languages necessary for small to medium size businesses to open and operate in a post-COVID19 epidemic and pre-vaccine environment.


Restart Partners is seeking proposals to create a forward-looking and behavior-informed scorecard and dashboard with real time intelligence/information on population health and risk mitigation strategies. It will be used to assist community leaders and business owners in making informed decisions about COVID-19 policy options and incentives/disincentives for reopening safely. It will include understanding of effective message strategies to reach these businesses and restoring consumer confidence for resuming daily activities.  In addition to being available online, this information will be folded into the Adoption Strategy (Changing Norms) educational campaign and shared with all Safe Start project partners for dissemination to and education for their clients.


Develop a recommendation system designed for small businesses, akin to a weather forecast, using social and normative behavioral data collected in supporting surveys and experiments so that small business owners and customers can make informed decisions. This includes choices about PPE, risk mitigation strategies for employees and customers, and ways for businesses to behave and deliver messages to customers that build trust and confidence in the community.


Vendor shall provide contact name, address, phone, email and website.  Proposals need to have a timeline of specific deliverables.  Proposals need to be submitted to by COB October 29, 2020:
