“We decided to use the CODAworx RFP eblast tool to boost our outreach on a recent project. We ended up with 269 applications (a significant increase!) representing many new artists. We were very pleased with both the number of artists who responded and the high quality of the work represented.” Roberta Bloom

RFP Consulting Services
Your RFP will go to the inboxes of your targeted audiences twice, once when announced, and again five days before the deadline.

Choose criteria for RFP evaluation and provide your committee with an easy-to-use structure to score proposals.
“I'm a big fan of CODAworx. We would never have had access to all the artists. CODAworx was invaluable throughout the whole process. I don't know why anyone would ever try to do it on their own, it would take so much more time, and you're not going to have anywhere near the end result." Eric Hovde
CEO of Hovde Properties
Art Commission Contract
A Simple-To-Use Contractual Agreement Template
In any business dealing, a written contract can provide security and peace of mind to all of the parties involved in the transaction. Contracts written between commissioners and artists are no exception.
This Commission Contract provides a template that outlines the full understanding of the business relationship and scope of the artwork so that no one can claim any misunderstandings later down the road. It is simple to implement and highly cost effective. With this Commission Contract you will be equipped to specify exactly what rights are being purchased and what rights the artist is retaining. Once signed and notarized, this Commission Contract is binding and legally enforceable.
