AVLIC CES Rating Revision RFP

AVLIC has been working towards reviewing the CES. A couple of years ago during AVLIC’s conference in Winnipeg, members developed a motion to establish a task force, to outline the process for the review. The task force reviewed statistical data, conducted a survey and has made their recommendations. As such, CES is currently beginning the process of reviewing the CES. The first step of this process is the Test of Interpretation (TOI), rating revision.

I wanted to reach out to you to provide you with the opportunity to review the Request for Proposal attached.

May you be interested in submitting a proposal or know someone who may be interested in investigating and developing a rating process for the TOI, please be in touch with myself, Debbie Parliament, evaluations@avlic.ca.
