The U.S. Department of Agriculture wants to train as many as 80 public affairs officers about building a strategic communications plan to support its Natural Resources Conservation Service, the arm of the FDA that counsels private landowners and farmers for issues like clean air, clean energy, and climate change.

The service, via RFP, is looking for a firm to train its PA staff via webinars on the value and logistics of strategic communications planning. Consultants must have training in strategic communications planning, PR or a related field.

Proposals are due May 18. View the RFP at
