Description

Explorer Solutions was retained to undertake a performance review of the Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS) which has been contracted to manage the Comox Valley Economic Development on behalf of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). The process was designed to assist the CVRD as they prepared for a possible five-year contract renewal with CVEDS. The mandate included numerous consultations (one-on-one meetings) with a number of board representatives, elected officials and other stakeholders to establish a baseline for setting priorities and from which to advance economic development activities and outcomes should CVRD wish to renew its contract with CVEDS. Our team prepared the work plan,provided a detailed analysis of the performance evaluation and provided a series of key recommendations and best practices to be considered in future negotiations.
