Organization: Cambridge Redevelopment Authority
Deadline: March 30th, 2018 at 4:00pm
The CRA is a government redevelopment agency founded in 1956 under the authorization of Massachusetts General Law Chapter 121B. As a redevelopment agency, the CRA revitalizes underutilized and blighted areas, encourages new development, invests in public infrastructure, and promotes sound growth in Cambridge. Over the past 62 years, the CRA has undertaken major redevelopment initiatives in the Kendall Square and Wellington- Harrington neighborhoods, as well as a number of smaller-scale housing and infrastructure projects in other areas of Cambridge.
To better understand CRA history and preserve historic documents, the CRA is seeking an experienced archivist to categorize and reorganize its records. Additionally, the CRA seeks to streamline its current records management system to increase the efficiency of filing and accessing documents. The selected entity should be familiar with Massachusetts Public Records Law and be comfortable working with a variety of document types, including but not limited to photographs, building and site plans, legal development and land-use agreements, CRA Board meeting minutes and motions, memos, personnel records and written correspondence.
The Archivist should have an education in archival and records management, experience working with governmental, real estate or similar agencies, and an understanding of Massachusetts Public Records Law. Having a background in urban planning, geography, real estate, and/or Cambridge history is preferred.
RFP responses must be submitted by email to Alexandra Levering (firstname.lastname@example.org), and include a cover letter and resume for individuals working on the project, two (2) references, demonstration of experience, and an estimated project timetable, work plan, and budget based off the preliminary scope provided.
