  5. 5. PURPOSE OF RFP <ul><li>The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit competitive proposals for the operation of the Workforce Investment Act Adult & Dislocated Worker Program in the following county of the Region Q Workforce Investment Consortium: Pitt County Any governmental, educational, community-based organization or non-profit agency engaged in public service; or any private-for-profit agency may apply. Each entity proposing to provide the employment and training services as prescribed by this RFP must do so as an individual company or agency, and be prepared to either provide the services directly or establish an agreement with the appropriate provider(s) of the services. </li></ul>
  6. 6. ONE-STOP DELIVERY SYSTEM <ul><li>Workforce Investment Act Interim Final Rules were published by the US Department of Labor in the August 11, 2000 Federal Register and are available on the internet at: http://www.doleta.gov/usworkforce/ . On the right side of the page, review the column and locate “Laws and Regs.” Clicking on Laws and Regs will take the viewer to Workforce Investment Act Interim Final Rules. </li></ul><ul><li>The WDB, in partnership with our workforce development agencies, has developed a system of comprehensive JobLink Career Centers in the five-county region. The system design currently includes five (5) full-service JobLink Career Centers and 3 JobLink Information Sites. Region Q requires that all adult & dislocated worker contractors operate from the applicable JobLink Career Center. Bidders are expected to meet with the applicable JobLink Center lead agency/operator to discuss provisions for shared space, and costs for this should be reflected in the bidder’s proposal. A letter of agreement from the JobLink Center Manager per coordinated services and physical space commitments must also be included in this proposal. </li></ul>
  7. 7. COLLABORATION <ul><li>Leveraged Funding and Service Coordination </li></ul><ul><li>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 JobLink services 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. </li></ul>
  8. 8. ADULT <ul><li>663.110 To be an eligible adult in the adult and dislocated worker program, an individual must be 18 years of age or older. 664.500(a) Under the Act, eligible youth are 14 through 21 years of age. Adults are defined in the Act as individuals age 18 and older. Thus, individuals ages 18 through 21 may be eligible for both adult and youth programs. Permission must be obtained from the Region Q LA MIS Coordinator prior to co-enrollment. </li></ul>
  9. 9. DISLOCATED WORKERS <ul><ul><li>To be eligible for the dislocated worker program, an eligible adult must meet the definition of “dislocated worker” at section 101(9) of the Act. 101(9) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The term “dislocated worker” means: </li></ul><ul><li>(1) An individual who has been terminated or laid off, or who has received notice of termination or layoff, from employment, and is eligible for or has exhausted entitlement to unemployment compensation, and is unlikely to return to a previous industry or occupation. </li></ul><ul><li>(2) An individual who has been terminated or laid off, or who has received notice of termination or layoff, from employment, and has been employed for a duration sufficient to demonstrate, to the appropriate entity at a one-stop center referred to in section 134(c), attachment to the workforce, but is not eligible for unemployment compensation due to insufficient earnings or having performed services for an employer that was not covered under a State unemployment compensation law, and is unlikely to return to a previous industry or occupation. </li></ul>
  10. 10. DISLOCATED WORKER <ul><li>(3) An individual who has been terminated or laid off, or who has received a notice of termination or layoff, from employment as a result of any permanent closure of, or any substantial layoff at, a plant, facility, or enterprise. </li></ul><ul><li>(4) An individual who is employed at a facility at which the employer has made a general announcement that such facility will close within 180 days. </li></ul><ul><li>(5) For purposes of eligibility to receive services other than training, intensive, or supportive services, an individual who is employed at a facility at which the employer has made a general announcement that such facility will close. </li></ul><ul><li>(6) An individual who was self-employed (including employment as a farmer, rancher, or fisherman) but is unemployed as a result of general economic conditions in the community in which the individual resides or because of a natural disaster </li></ul><ul><li>(7) An individual who is a displaced homemaker. </li></ul>
