The following table is intended to quickly make many area representatives and service providers aware when GDI Solutions is supporting a non-confidential project (whether anonymous or identified by company name) for which help is needed.  Even after a location search or selection decision is publicly announced, we may be able to introduce other services to support the successful implementation of the project.

The responsible executives must have agreed that we may share some project information openly in this manner, such as to solicit responses from any support organizations whose capabilities may seem to be relevant to their needs.

This can be analogous to an open RFP process, except that the investor may prefer not to be identified until any replies are reviewed for relevance to their needs.  If the executive agrees, however, this listing may already identify who to contact directly at the company for any service which may be able to meet their indicated needs.

Normally, GDI Solutions can make appropriate introductions at the right time according to the interests of the executives involved and our established sources of project support, including any responses received through this open process.

This process may also be useful when the interests of the investor are at a very preliminary stage of planning, when direct introductions may be less appropriate until a more active stage of project planning is reached.

Area representatives and service providers may want to bookmark this page to review open requests for project support periodically.  We may be working on a project for which their capabilities would be relevant, as we may not be aware of such capabilities in the absence of active participation in our services. 

We will typically highlight the existence of open requests for project support on our home page to call attention to them, as they are likely to occur infrequently.  This is not an RFP publishing process for "project leads" to be broadcast to anyone who might be interested.  It is another professional way to find solutions when our own network of contacts and research capabilities do not adequately address the investor's needs more privately.  Usually, this approach will not be necessary.

Normally, requests for support will be made through direct introductions on the basis of our knowledge and network of contacts developed through working relationships among active participants in our services, rather than through the publication of open requests for assistance here.

The open request is more likely to be used when it proves very difficult to identify appropriate solutions for an investor's very specialized needs without undertaking a wider and more open search such as this, or engaging in costly research, typically after using our existing network of contacts and research capabilities already.

The listings are intended to be helpful to the executives and active participants or contacts of GDI Solutions as a quick way to solicit responses in a consistent manner for projects anywhere in the world.  This table may link to further details about specific project needs, when available.
