To celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASPAA (Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration) and expand on the partnership with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the two organizations proposed the development of a set of case study materials to be used by faculty to bring real-life situations into the classroom for graduate local government management students and the professional development of local managers. This RFP seeks to engage a partnership of academics and practitioners in the development of case study materials. The case studies will be framed around current, emerging, and vexing management challenges, with an emphasis on one or more of the specific competencies identified by NASPAA and ICMA. Each of the five competencies will have several case studies that address issues pertaining to that competency. There will be 20 to 25 case studies available to educators.
