22 Sample RFP Response We place a key focus on client service excellence. All team members will be dedicated resources with appropriate cross-training for back-up support to cover off illness and holidays. Below are the key individuals that form our account management structure. Account Director – Reports directly to the President and is responsible for overall project governance, establishing SLA reporting, making process improvement recommendations and leading project debrief sessions. The Account Director is the primary escalation point for internal team members and the client. Key areas of expertise include: Account Manager – Reports to VP Operations and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the account once project implementation is complete. The account manager is responsible for reviewing and distributing the SLA report, conducting regular client review meetings and making process improvement recommendations. Any client inquiries that cannot be answered by the Account Manager are assigned to the appropriate client service team member for response. Complaint Escalation and Resolution Process – the primary escalation point is the Project Manager during a project cycle and the Account Director or Account Manager at any time. These individuals have full authority to resolve all issues including staffing, equipment and service challenges. 22

23 RFP Response Partnering Section 4

24 Partnering on TO2015 Business Opportunities Why partner with others? The opportunity is larger than you have capacity for The sum of your individual capabilities creates stronger value for the client Geographic presence – the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games footprint is extensive Partners bring the diversity component that you may be missing Partners bring environmental sustainability experience 24 Note: Responding to TO2015 business opportunities as partners and the structure of the partnership is the sole choice of the participating businesses.

25 Partnership Models Primary - secondary (tier 1 / tier 2) The larger company plays a lead role as the smaller company fills a niche role. Example 1: –CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Athletes Village catering provider (tier 1) requires a diverse caterer (tier 2) to supply Caribbean cuisine for 10 days. Example 2: –TO2015 Primary bus provider (tier 1) requires to subcontract regional buses and drivers (tier 2) to service non-GTA based venues (Minden, Oro- Medonte). 25

26 Partnership Models Peer - Peer Businesses of equal size partner to respond to a TO2015 RFP. Each business fills a certain portion of the requirements, with one taking the contract lead or both forming a joint venture. Example 1: –Company A and Company B team to respond to TO2015s Broadcast RFP. Company A provides host broadcast services (Video production) while Company B provides domestic broadcast viewing (TV broadcast). Company A represents the larger portion of the contract and therefore decides to be contract lead. Example 2: –A florist partners with a gifts business to provide floral bouquets for the TORONTO 2015 medal ceremonies. They form a JV (partnership) for this contract. 26

27 Supplier Partnerships Developing your partnership proposal All TO2015 RFPs will include diversity requirements. Create an opportunity for the non-diverse lead proponent to satisfy their diversity requirements through a partnership or sub-contract. Create a win-win scenario. Ensure that there is value and a need in your proposal (i.e. research TO2015). –Budget if posted online. –Toronto 2015 Bid Book (website). –Similar Summer Games. Propose the solution that you are ready to fulfil (demonstrated experience). 27
