Under the auspices of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Area 20 Workforce Development Board (“WDB” or “Board”) of Fairfield, Hocking, Pickaway, Ross, and Vinton counties works in partnership with the Chief Elected Officials (CEOs) of those counties to set the workforce policies for the region.

Per the Intergovernmental Agreement of the Area 20 WDB, the Fairfield County Economic Development Department serves as the Administrative and Fiscal Agent for the WDB.

For purposes of this Request for Proposal (RFP), the area will be referred to as Area 20.
This Request for Proposal seeks an interested, highly qualified firm or individual to conduct a comprehensive labor analysis of each county within Area 20, its labor shed, and the training requirements of its in-demand jobs. The contract will be awarded for January 4, 2021 through April 30, 2021. The deadline for proposal submission is November 27, 2020.
The Area 20 workforce region is comprised of Fairfield County, Hocking County, Pickaway County, Ross County, and Vinton County. The consultant must be able to physically service this area. An organization or
individual(s) must bid on the Strategic Workforce Analysis and Economic Recovery Plan for the area in its entirety.
The Area 20 WDB will accept and consider proposals from for-profit entities and non-profit organizations, including but not limited to governmental entities, community agencies, educational institutions (excluding traditional elementary and secondary schools), and faith-based organizations. A consortium of organizations may also bid if the proposal clearly delineates the lead organization and the roles and functions it will provide. Individual(s) may also submit a bid.
