Funding for Regional Networks Now Available

Strong regional networks are essential for connecting schools, students and employers in meaningful ways.

These networks will convene and manage cross-industry, cross-sector partnerships in order to develop and expand the career connected learning opportunities that are needed in that region. That work includes serving as primary point-of-contact for career connected learning within their region. They will also gather regional data and share important learnings with the Career Connect Washington Work Group (a full list of responsibilities is included in the RFP).

We have now begun an request for proposals (RFP) process to provide this funding.

The Career Connect Washington Regional Networks Funding Request for Proposals (RFP) is now available via Washington Electronic Business Solutions (WEBS), Reference # 2019-148 or WEBS ID # 41791 (searching by either number will bring it up). Applicants need to be registered in WEBS to view the solicitation.

In order to comply with WA State procurement laws, the RFP document includes all the required boiler plate language, assurance documents, certifications, and other mandatory sections.

While it is essential that applicants review the packet in its entirety and submit all required materials, the following sections contain information that is unique to the Career Connect Washington Regional Network application and take up fewer than ten pages altogether:

  1. Introduction
    1. Overview
    2. Target Customers
    3. Objectives & Deliverables
    4. Minimum Qualifications
    5. Funding
    6. Period of Performance
