The following documents apply to each RFP:
The SWC is soliciting proposals to identify three operators for the WorkSource Campus, with one at each of the following locations: WorkSource Spokane, Next Generation Zone, and EnVision Center. Agencies can bid on one or more operator positions. Operators should be goal-driven, visionary, inspirational and highly professional leaders willing to achieve our vision for cutting-edge, functionally integrated service sites. In general, each operator will be responsible for the management of their respective site, with the WorkSource operator additionally responsible for (1) functionally or directly leading talent solution services, and (2) supporting the SWC with coordinating affiliated WorkSource service locations in Spokane County.
The SWC is soliciting proposals to identify a consortium of providers to deliver Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I Adult and Dislocated Worker (DW) services at WorkSource Spokane in a manner designed to meet the needs of local employers. Unlike typical Adult and Dislocated Worker program Requests for Proposal, this RFP is designed to identify a consortium capable of offering WIOA Title I services in a functional team model, which is accomplished by grouping services by service level – Basic Career, Individualized Career, and Training – rather than by program or agency.
The SWC is soliciting proposals to identify a consortium of providers to deliver WIOA Title I Youth services at the Next Generation Zone in a one-stop career center model. This RFP is designed to identify a consortium capable of offering WIOA Title I Youth services in an integrated environment where education, career skills training, community and employment resources are co-located to provide wrap-around support to young adults.
The SWC is soliciting proposals to identify a consortium of agencies to offer talent solutions services, also known as business services, on behalf of the Spokane WorkSource System and the SWC. Services will be delivered at our new Talent Solutions Center, which will open in March or April 2019 at 140 S. Arthur St. Suite 300B, Spokane, WA. It is the goal of the SWC that the talent solutions team strive to be a national leader in talent solution services.
