2020 Delta Workforce Program: Request for Proposals for Labor Market and Workforce Report

2020 Delta Workforce Prorgram Request for Proposals

The Delta Regional Authority (DRA) is publishing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from qualified researchers and consultants to examine the state of the workforce and workforce development systems in the Delta Region through in-depth quantitative and qualitative analyses. The ultimate aim of this research project is to provide an overview of the workforce conditions across the Delta, highlight strengths and weaknesses in workforce development activity, and suggest ways in which DRA may target resources to bolster and improve economic conditions in the Region. This will require a team of researchers with a broad range of expertise, including economists, data analysts, cartographers, technical assistance experts, and business leaders, as well as writers capable of weaving the multiple components into a cohesive, well-documented, and visually appealing report delivered within 8-10 months of the project start date.
