Nanaimo searches for core review consultant

NANAIMO – A request for proposals for a core review consultant goes out to the public this week.

The City of Nanaimo is on the hunt for a consultant to undertake a new core review.

Nanaimo city council unanimously agreed during a council meeting Monday to send out a request for proposals this week for a core review consultant.

It will be a comprehensive review and covers programs and services performed by the city and its contractors, and governance, according to the RFP document.

It will also involve public engagement.

Roshan Danesh, a consultant hired to work with the core services committee, expects because of the scope of the work it will cost more than $200,000 and take eight to 12 months to conduct.

The RFP process closes Nov. 17.
