Cone of Silence

The Children's Trust's procurement process and funding opportunities are governed by county ordinances that help to ensure fairness and transparency. The intent of the Cone of Silence is to ensure that no one unduly or inappropriately influences anyone responsible for reviewing proposals or making funding recommendations, including volunteer reviewers, board members and staff of The Children's Trust. The "Cone" goes into effect when a competitive solicitation is released and remains in effect until the CEO announces the funding recommendations.
