Stephanie Bonin

Please state that again: A non-VT based provider can apply as long as their business is registered in VT?
Gabriel Sistare
25:39
Stephanie, if the technical assistance provider is at least registered to do business in Vermont, they may register as a provider.
Amanda Witman
26:13
And they have to have been registered as of February 1, or did I mishear that?
Gabriel Sistare
26:23
Correct, Amanda.
Lisa Henderson
27:34
As a Statewide resource, will we work with multiple navigators as they work for each company?
Keith Epstein
27:58
what's the difference between assistance timeline and assistance milestones?
Adam Grinold
28:20
Lisa, workflows will be drive by the business applicant which is tied to their regional navigator. So, yes potential multiple navigators.
Adam Grinold
29:07
Timeline is start and end dates. Milestones are determined to help keep project on track. Navigator will hold vendor and business accountable to milestones to make sure projects are on track
Morgan (CommonGoodVT)
29:38
Can you repeat how vendor and clients are matched? Will nonprofit serving vendors be given preference for nonprofit applicants?
Kim Dixon
30:15
Can the completion date be after the Dec deadline if, for example the scope is ongoing retainer work?
Adam Grinold
30:27
Morgan- Businesses are solely responsible for doing any due diligence on perspective vendors- they chose. Navigator helps make connections
Valerie McCord
30:30
Can we sign up as a Vendor while we are waiting for our new insurance policy?
LAWRENCE MILLER
30:41
Does BDCC need to be named insured or just a basic COI?
Gabriel Sistare
30:49
Valerie, absolutely. Just understand that it is a requirement for actual payment in the end.
Lisa Bloch
30:51
Is it E&O Insurance you are requiring?
Adam Grinold
30:53
Yes, you can sign up without insurance, just know you will need this to enter into scope of work
Lisa Bloch
31:15
confirming it is E&O and not some other type.
Adam Grinold
31:24
The client and BDCC will need to be named regardless of RDC region as BDCC is fiscal sponsor statewide
Adam Grinold
31:41
See website for detailed list of insurance requirements
Jeff Nottonson
32:58
Do I understand correctly that if I was not registered with the State as of February of my status as a Photographer, I cannot apply for this TA program?
Julia Scott
34:27
I noticed the deadline for all work completed is Dec 4. This is a relatively short timeline. Can you help us all understand the reason behind this timeline? Was it to meet the requirements of the funding?
Robert Russ
34:37
Will a business be reimbursed for the SOW or will funds be directly sent to a vendor after the scope of work is completed?
Timothy West
34:38
1. Can the program cover goods, or only services. E.g. in my case a client may wish to source laptops, webcams, etc. to facilitate work-from-home. Would these expenses be covered?
Timothy West
34:45
2. Can a vendor also participate as a client?
Sharon Ayer
35:43
If you click "Participants", the raise hand function appears in the menu that pops up.
Adam Grinold
37:58
Tim West- Yes, you can be a vendor and a client!
Amanda Witman
38:07
What is the reason for the requirement of Feb 1st registration in VT? Businesses have grown up during the pandemic to help folks navigate pandemic-specific challenges. It’s unfortunate that this program and its participants will lose out on those resources.
Amanda Witman
40:55
What are the minimum insurance requirements? I priced out insurance yesterday for my business based on the information in the application (I’m a consultant, no employees, working remotely, do not currently have insurance) and the quote was $800-1200 for basic coverage that seemed to fit what the application required. That’s a steep price to invest with no guarantee of work to offset it. I understand this is a federal requirement, but it feels prohibitive, unfortunately. I wonder if I’ve misunderstood the requirement.
Jim Verzino
42:08
Can recipients (the businesses receiving services) apply for multiple grants
Timothy West
47:31
Sorry to be a pest but can you please tell me if only services are covered, or goods as well? E.g. can I source laptops, webcams, etc for client to set up work-from-home?
Adam Grinold
48:00
Will answer to all:- one moment
Morgan (CommonGoodVT)
48:19
Can multiple clients be grouped into a single SOW for the same deliverable? Ex. 3 nonprofit clients seeking a single technical assistance training for their board on the same topic. Or would this be multiple SOWs? Would this be a single $3,000 payment or multiple?
Adam Grinold
53:33
Morgan- Please let us know if you see opportunity with a group project- this is most efficient and would be supported.
Keith Epstein
59:56
Thanks - this was very informative!
Lisa Bloch
01:02:04
On the website is there a listing of all the statewide Navigators?
Lisa Bloch
01:03:19
Yes thank you.
