issues the following
Request for Proposal (RFP)
Seeking a One-Stop Operator for Northwest Michigan Works!, Inc.

 
Issue Date: June 1st, 2022
Due Date: July 1st, 2022

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires each local Workforce Development Board (WDB) to solicit a One Stop Operator (OSO) through a competitive bid process. The role of the OSO, per WIOA, is to provide coordination of the various service providers within the one-stop American Job Center(s). The Act does not define the OSO role beyond that (see WIOA Section 121).

Networks Northwest has identified the following as desired roles of the OSO:

  • Evaluate and provide assessment of customer service practices. Processes to be evaluated are, but are not limited to, staff and customer interaction, customer intake, customer triage, customer process flow, and staff assisted career services;
  • Serve as a natural convener of WIOA required partners within the American Job Centers with the goal of introducing a continuous improvement mindset and culture as it pertains to customer process flow within the American Job Centers;
  • Facilitate a comprehensive workforce development strategic planning process that may include, but is not limited to, an assessment of regional talent related resources and shortfalls, identifying workforce development priorities, and establishing desired outcomes.
