    1.1 Statement of Objective
    The University of North Florida Board of Trustees (UNF or University) is issuing a competitive
    solicitation for the marketing and recruitment of online programs.
    The University of North Florida is seeking proposals for marketing services with the goal of increasing
    student enrollment in select online degree programs. UNF’s online programs are a small but important
    part of the institution’s degree offerings. The university has a learning management system,
    instructional designers, and a strong faculty development model in place, and is looking for a vendor
    to provide marketing services for its excellent online offerings.

    The initial term of any agreement(s) resulting from this Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) will be for two
    years. The University will have the option to renew for three additional one-year terms upon mutual
    written consent of both parties to the Agreement; renewals are not automatic. The Successful
