The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has a long history of providing unbiased, pragmatic solutions and best practice advice on land use and sustainable development. Through ULI BC, nonprofit and municipal leaders have access to a unique perspective and a multidisciplinary team of real estate experts whose collective advisory guidance can only be found in one organization.
ULI BC’s Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) provides comprehensive and strategic advice in response to a specific or complex land use, real estate challenge or development assignment.
How does the TAP program work?
The Host (typically a local government or a non-profit organization), either on an unsolicited basis or after a request for applications from ULI, requests TAP services on a specific issue that can be addressed by a panel of experts in one or two days. ULI assists the Host in refining the scope of the assignment and convenes a panel of ULI members with expertise and knowledge in the subject areas being addressed.
The Host provides background information to the Panelists prior to the panel convening as well as the questions to be addressed by the panel. The TAP panel visits the subject site, hears from public and private stakeholders, and deliberates on the assigned questions. To conclude the one or two day session, a summary of recommendations via a PowerPoint presentation is provided to the Host followed by a comprehensive written report. A fee is charged by ULI for the advisory service to cover administration and development of the TAP report.
