NOTICE OF INTENT TO AWARD 

RFP NO. FY-19-001

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth Program: Career In Focus

Thank you for your proposal in response to Request for Proposal (RFP) FY-19-001, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth Program: Career In Focus. The Workforce Development Board (WDB) of Solano County has completed its evaluation of proposals in response to this RFP.

The Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) is the apparent best-evaluated proposer that the WDB will consider for contract award. This notice is not an acceptance of any offer, and the WDB retains the right to reject any bid.

The WDB reserves the right to add stipulations and terms and conditions, deemed to be in the best interest of the WDB during final contract negotiations. Final award of a contact will be contingent upon successful negotiation of an agreement; acceptance by SCOE of the contract agreement terms and conditions, acceptance by SCOE of responsibility for achievement of contract goals and objectives; and availability of funding. Once the final contract is completed, signed and returned, WDB staff will prepare a recommendation to the Solano County Board of Supervisors to approve the final contract.  

We appreciate your interest in providing services to the WDB and hope that you will respond to future Request for Proposals.

TRAINING PROVIDER OPPORTUNITIES

The Workforce Development Board of Solano County (WDB) is accepting applications to expand the California Statewide Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) of training providers operating in Solano County.

The training programs must be in locally or state defined demand occupations. Training programs must achieve a minimum 70% entered employment rate or higher in the training occupational area within two years of nomination and maintain that rate every year thereafter.

Qualified Training Providers will be included on the statewide list and become eligible to receive referrals of individuals eligible for subsidized training under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

It is required that Training Providers be accredited by a State of California accrediting organization before any application will be considered for nomination.

If your school is not a public education entity or a facility providing a Department of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) registered apprenticeship training program (www.dir.ca.gov/das/), then you must also be registered with the California Department of Consumer Affairs’ Bureau of Private Post-Secondary Education (www.bppe.ca.gov).

Training Providers interested in having their Programs nominated to the statewide approved list must:

  1. Review the CalJOBS Quick Reference Card (see link below) [NO LINK PROVIDED] ;
  2. Request a USER login in CalJOBS (www.caljobs.ca.gov), if you are not a registered USER in CalJOBs;
  3. Enter the required School Information into CalJOBS (if the school does not exist in CalJOBs);
  4. Enter the required Training Program Information into CalJOBS;
  5. Submit to the WDBSC a completed Training Provider Data Change Request (see link below for form) [NO LINK PROVIDED] along with the following documents:
    1. Current Accreditation Letter from a State of California recognized accreditation institution,
    2. Current BPPE Approval Letter (if applicable),
    3. Current Liability Insurance, and
    4. Training Program Expense Detail Sheet (see link below for form) [NO LINK PROVIDED] for each training program.

Send the documentation package via email to twhite@solanowdb.org.

WDBSC staff will determine the eligibility of each program(s) in accordance with the State of California Directive(s) and our local procedures.

Inclusion on the statewide and local ETPL does not guarantee your school or training program will receive referrals from Solano County WIOA clients. Our policy drives for “informed” customer choice when choosing a school and training program. Our participants will choose the school and training program based on their own research and needs to ensure their success. The final decision to award a training scholarship is based on the results of a structured interview with the participant.

If you are interested in being added to the ETPL,contact Marion Aiken at maiken@solanowdb.org or call (707) 863-3594.
