    CWD LogoCommunity & Workforce Development RFPs

    Community & Workforce Development (CWD) implements collaborative planning to develop community partnerships with local, state and federal agencies, non-profits, faith-based organizations and the private sector to best access, leverage and increase human services, housing and workforce development resources.

    A Request for Proposal (RFP) is a formal invitation for an offeror to submit a proposal to provide a solution to a problem or provide a service need identified by the CWD. The RFP is also a procurement process where the County has the ability to judge if an Offeror's qualifications, experience, and approach will provide the best solution or effectively delivery the needed service.

    Process Overview 

    The RFP process begins with a solicitation that outlines parameters for an Offeror to consider. Often, the program may offer a technical assistance in the form of a public forum for all offerors to clarify the problem to be solved or detail the service that is needed. Most applications are reviewed by an independent body or in accordance to the funding source. The Award and Contracting phase marks the end of the RFP. 

    1. Solicitation and Pre-Application Considerations: The solicitation will set deadlines, document requirements, and proposal instructions. Further, the solicitation and RFP will outline the qualification requirements and other requirements for an Offeror to decide on a response. 
    2. Response Resources: Following stringent procurement laws and guidelines, many programs offer an opportunity to address questions and clarify instructions for all potential Offerors in an open and transparent manner. There are also opportunities for the Offeror to become familiar with programs vision and values by visiting publicly available web pages. 
    3. Application Review: According to each funding agency, a review board or committee will evaluate qualified proposals using criteria set in the RFP. According to each funding agency, decisions will be made and published accordingly. 
    4. Award and Contracting: Although the Award marks the end of the RFP process, the solicitation will identify requirements upon award and Offerors should consider these post award requirements before submitting a proposal.
    5. Contract Administration: Successful implementation of mutually agreeable terms.
