One-stop Operator RFP due April 17, 2017
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) requires each Local Workforce Development Board to have a one-stop service operator for their system that provides services to employers and job seekers. Furthermore, WIOA requires that a One-Stop Operator must be competitively procured and in place by July 1, 2017. This requirement has led the South Central PA Works (SCPa Works), which is the Local Workforce Development Board under WIOA, to issue this request for proposals for a One-Stop Operator for the PA CareerLink® sites located in the South Central Pennsylvania Area.
The SCPa Works is pleased to issue this request for proposals to identify an entity to serve as the Operator (as defined by WIOA) for the management of the SCPa Works’ six (6) comprehensive PA CareerLink® sites. The Operator role will be distinct from the roles of the direct providers at PA CareerLink® sites. Those partner organizations that contribute to the operations of the area’s PA CareerLink® sites through the Resource Sharing Agreement and Budget (RSAB) and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will come under the direction of the Operator.
Proposals are due back on April 17, 2017.
The contract with the Operator selected under this solicitation will begin on July 1, 2017.
