Guidance Handbook for 2017 SUNY RFP

Organized by the individual questions (Requests) contained in the RFP, the Handbook contains specific technical guidance, legal interpretation and further information about SUNY expectations.

The Handbook’s purpose is to enhance the clarity and utility of critical information for applicants. The Institute strongly recommends that applicants read through all of the guidance for each request and sub-request to guide them in developing their responses, as Institute staff consider all elements of the guidance when assessing the quality of proposals.

Just as in the RFP, the Handbook has two main sections: guidance related to standard proposal requests and guidance for replication applicants eligible for the streamlined application process.
