Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC)
Chicken Farmers of Canada Request for Proposals
Each year, CFC invites researchers to submit an application for a Request for Proposal (RFP) for research in areas of particular interest to the chicken industry. CFC is requesting that interested applicants follow the submission guidelines as detailed in the Canadian Poultry Research Council’s Call for Letters of Intent (dated December 2019).
The objective of this RFP is to solicit letters of intent for:
- On-farm control strategies to reduce the prevalence of Salmonella sp. and/or Campylobacter in broilers
- Development of eco-efficient energy strategies in poultry production to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the welfare and productivity of farms
Maximum Project Value
This project funding is separate to that provided by the Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC). CFC’s contribution to the proposal will be limited to a maximum of $60,000 per project. Industry dollars, whether from CFC or other industry sources, must be matched with non-industry dollars at a ratio of at least 1:1. Higher leverage ratios are preferred.
CFC is requesting that interested applicants follow the submission guidelines as detailed in the Canadian Poultry Research Council’s Call for Letters of Intent (dated December 2019). LOI submissions are to be submitted to CPRC but clearly identified as being in response to the CFC Request for Proposals.
While this is a separate RFP, CFC will be using the same review process as is currently used by CPRC. CPRC will also be acting as the administrator for this project on behalf of CFC, and all contracts and reporting mechanisms will be as per CPRC protocols and policies.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Please submit your completed LOI in Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an email notification of receipt within two days of submitting your application. If you do not receive confirmation, please contact CPRC.
How to Apply
Submissions should be provided directly to the Bruce Roberts (email@example.com) at the Canadian Poultry Research Council.
