Purpose of rfp
PURPOSE OF RFP

  • The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to procure a contractor that will provide Adult and Dislocated Worker program staffing to the One-Stop Centers within the region. (Beaufort, Bertie, Hertford, Martin, and Pitt). These staff will deliver Wagner-Peyser and WIA workforce development services and training to both job seekers and employer customers under the NC Integrated Services system


Functional Leadership

In the Region Q Career Center integrated model, functional supervision will play a key role within the operations. To implement this supervisory approach, each full-service Career Center will have a Functional Leader (Manager/Supervisor) who is directly responsible for day-to-day operational activities. The Functional Leader will make operational decisions concerning customer flow, deploy staff as necessary to manage the customer flow, and be responsible for the overall quality and effectiveness of the center. The functional supervision model recognizes that the contracting organization is considered the employer of record and has internal human resource functions that must be managed within their organization.


Functional Leadership(Continued)

Such functions would include final hiring and firing decisions, benefits administration, and time and attendance reporting. However, it should be noted that even in these critical human resource areas, the Functional Leader will have input and the opportunity to influence decisions.


Team-Based Staff Deployment

In the Region Q NC Works integrated model, staff will be deployed in functional teams that work together to meet the needs of job seeker and employer customers. The specific functional teams that will operate in each One-Stop Center at a minimum will include the Welcome Team, the Skills Team, and the Employment Team. The Region Q Workforce Development Board requires the contractor through this Request for Proposals to staff these functional teams with high energy professional staff who can deliver high quality services to customers and who also have the ability to determine the need for supportive services for employment and training, assessing availability, suitability, and identifying resources to meet those needs.


Depending on Center size and staffing levels, WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker staff under this staffing proposal, may, at the Center Manager’s direction, perform duties in all three functions. (Welcome Team, Skills Team, and the Employment Team)


Expected Performance Dislocated Worker staff under this staffing proposal, may, at the Center Manager’s direction, perform duties in all three functions. (Welcome Team, Skills Team, and the Employment Team)

The Region Q WDB must meet WIA and Wagner-Peyser Common Performance Measures as established by the State of North Carolina. PY 2014 standards have not been established at this time. PY 2013 standards are shown for reference. Under the Integrated Services Delivery System, all Wagner-Peyser and WIA Adult and Dislocated Workers staff will work towards meeting/ exceeding the following performance measures:


The successful contractor will be responsible for providing services to existing WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker customers (customer carry over from the prior year)


Based upon Region Q WDB policy, DWS Wagner-Peyser staff and WIA staff are allowed to enroll customers into approved WIA-supported training and issue ITA's, or refer customers for training and follow a training approval process. In either case, both DWS Wagner-Peyser and WIA funded staff will work together to identify the training needs of the Center customers. In the case of Wagner-Peyser staff enrolling customers in WIA funded training, WDB staff and Center leadership will establish procedures to ensure program eligibility prior to enrollment in training. Should an ineligible individual be enrolled in a WIA funded training activity that results in disallowed costs and the repayment of funds, the Agency of Record of the staff person making the determination will be financially responsible for the repayment of WIA funds.


The Bidder must provide a budget (see attachments) for the WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker staff that will be assigned to each of the centers for which they submit a bid (separate Adult budget and Dislocated Worker budget for each center).

Leveraged Funding and Service Coordination

Bidders will leverage community resources to create a seamless network of services that are easily accessible and relevant to customers. To have a meaningful impact on the quality and breadth of the NC Works System, bidders must be able to draw upon a resource base that extends beyond WIA funding. Bidders should describe connections to other funding sources that will benefit participants and increase the cost effectiveness of federal funds.
