Evaluation, Survey and Technical Assistance
Submission Deadline:  Tuesday, November 27 2018 - 5:00pm (PST)
Proposers' Conference RSVP Deadline:  Monday, October 29
Notice of Intent Deadline:  Thursday, November 8


The purpose of this RFQ is to solicit proposals from organizations interested in providing technical assistance and support for, and participating in the development of, reviews, qualitative evaluations, and satisfaction surveys of the City’s workforce development programs. Such evaluations and satisfaction surveys will allow the City to measure and assess the efficacy, efficiency, and impact of its grant-funded service delivery programs on local communities.

The City assists job seekers, disconnected youth and employers through its various service delivery systems, including EWDD's WorkSource and YouthSource Centers. Additionally, the City offers various other systems of service delivery through grant-funded initiatives such as the LA:RISE, Los Angeles Reconnections Career Academy, and Vulnerable/Underrepresented Populations programs.

The contractors that make up the City's service delivery systems are evaluated, at minimum, annually. The City continually adjusts and refines its performance evaluation model to meet the needs of workers and businesses, as well as to support a strong regional economy. This refinement process works toward fairness and accuracy while also recognizing exceptional performance by service delivery contractors.


The full RFQ and all related documents and forms may be downloaded through the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN).
