Request For Proposal - OVA Seeking Consultant To Advise On Club Alignment

By OVA, 08/21/18, 7:15AM EDT


The OVA is committed to servicing and supporting the integral role our member clubs play in the ongoing development of our sport.  Currently the clubs are experiencing obstacles and not receiving sufficient support from the OVA to operate optimally.  The OVA’s objective is to improve upon its service and support levels provided to the clubs. 

The OVA is seeking to identify and select an independent, qualified consultant to undertake the following tasks:

  • Review the OVA’s current regional model, the applicable committees, e.g. Club Presidents Advisory Council, policies, e.g. Tryout Window Policy, operational practices and processes.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses of communication methods, including timing and opportunity for feedback from club executives.
  • Solicit feedback from the community and OVA staff to review relationship and communication between the OVA and the clubs.
  • Define the roles and responsibilities of the OVA and the clubs
  • Provide recommendations how the OVA can improve its service and support to member clubs including a communications strategy.
  • Provide operational plan to implement recommendations.
  • Present recommendations and operational plan to the OVA Senior Management, Board of Directors and Club Presidents Advisory Council.

The result of the relationship and communications review will provide OVA and its clubs a framework to improve our effectiveness and alignment, with a stronger, more cooperative working relationship.  

Please note, the regional structure, some committees and policies are to be reviewed.  The OVA has no desire and it is out of scope for this project to propose a comprehensive governance structure review.
