RFP on organization development to implement knowledge management

The Awwa Research Foundation, is pretty unique in KM. Not only are we implementing KM for our organization, we also share practices with peer organizations (drinking water research organizations), and we sponsor research for our customers, water utilities.

Our board of trustees just approved the 2006 research agenda, with 38 projects valued at $22M. Request for Proposals (RFPs) for projects will be available by March 31. Of particular interest to KM folks are:

- Organizational Development Needed to Implement a Knowledge Management Strategy at Water Utilities (#4003).

- Workforce Planning for Water Utilities - Successful Recruiting, Training and Retaining Operators and Engineers to Meet Future Challenges (#4005).

Both these projects are will be open for competitive bid. The RFPs and guidelines for submitting proposals will be available on AwwaRF's Web site by March 31. Information on ongoing and completed AwwaRF's KM research can also be found our web site.

Hi Jeff -

I responded to your blog on KM for Awwarf. Interestingly enough I live in Denver also. I have worked on projects for Awwarf via MWH Global (An environmental engineering company whose core competency is in Water and Waste Water).

I would very much invite an opportunity to speak with you.
