RFP responses: Five legal points to include (though Procurement's nose may get out of joint)

Smart vendors are judicious about investing time and resources in a response to a request for proposal (“RFP”). They don’t want to waste the effort if it turns out they were never a serious candidate for the customer’s business, because they were just “column fodder” — that is, the customer’s procurement people had already chosen a particular vendor, but wanted to through the motions of getting competing bids anyway. With that in mind, here’s a “canned” preliminary legal response that I’ve found useful for vendor clients to attach to RFP responses when they don’t know whether they’re truly in the running for the business.

Pseudocode Standard

Pseudocode is a kind of structured english for describing algorithms. It allows the designer to focus on the logic of the algorithm without being distracted by details of language syntax.   At the same time, the pseudocode needs to be complete.   It describe the entire logic of the algorithm so that implementation becomes a rote mechanical task of translating line by line into source code. In general the vocabulary used in the pseudocode should be the vocabulary of the problem domain, not of the implementation domain.   The pseudocode is a narrative for someone who knows the requirements (problem domain) and is trying to learn how the solution is organized.

Make Your Mission Statement a Fundraising Tool

A nonprofit organization’s mission statement should be its principal case for support—the main reason why anybody should ever consider donating to the organization. Every other statement a nonprofit makes about its good works past, present, or future should derive from the content of a well crafted mission statement. A mission statement should be clear, concise, and active. It should literally trip off the tongue. The gist of it should be easily remembered. Think of it as your elevator pitch—what you want someone to know about your organization when you have 20 seconds or less to tell them (the time it takes for an elevator ride).
