Request for Proposal for Webinar Presentations 2013

Organizational Overview

The Legal Services National Technology Project (NTAP) is housed at the Northwest Justice Project in Seattle and serves a nationwide audience of legal aid organizations. NTAP helps nonprofit legal aid programs improve client services through the effective and innovative use of technology. To do this, we provide technology trainings, maintain information, create online tools, and host community forums such as the LStech email list and a YouTube channel.

Request Overview

NTAP is responsible for providing the community with at least 10 webinars in 2013. NTAP is requesting proposals from interested vendors to host one or more structured online interactive web based trainings or webinars. These Webinars should cover topics, both cutting edge and in use currently, that will enhance the legal services community’s use of technology. The webinars should be 60 to 90 minutes in length with at least 15% of the time left for open questions and answers from the attendees.

Webinars can be presented using NTAP’s Join.me account or other on-line conferencing software. These webinars are free to the attendees.

NTAP is open to proposals that incorporate new ideas and technologies. Recordings of the 2011 & 2012 webinar series can be found at our YouTube Channel: youtube.com/NTAPvideos
