How to Budget for IT and Develop an RFP

Today, more than ever, nonprofit organizations depend on technology to achieve their mission. However, studies have shown that IT does not play a prominent role in most nonprofits. Spending for technology purposes is a small portion of most nonprofit annual budgets, a majority of cases less than 1% as compared to 3%-4% for small-medium corporations.

I created this presentation for a talk I gave at the Alliance for Nonprofit Excellence and wanted to share it with you all as well. In the workshop we discussed different tools for creating a strategic technology plan for nonprofit organizations, explored the cost of technology, and provided tips for creating an effective RFP.
