City Seeks Proposals for Workforce Readiness and Development Program
Pre-Proposal Conference Set for December 13

St. Petersburg, Fla. (December 8, 2016) – As the city moves forward to invest in the growth and success of South St. Pete, a new Workforce Readiness and Development Program will focus on linking residents of the Community Redevelopment Area with job opportunities.

The city invites qualified firms to submit proposals for the Workforce Readiness and Development Program, RFP No. 6315, to include the development of new, innovative programs or expansion of existing programs.

The city’s Workforce Readiness and Development Program will involve opportunities and services for unemployed young adults between ages 16 and 24 years, single-parent households, as well as ex-offenders and/or unemployed residents of the CRA census tracts with the highest unemployment rates. The South St. Petersburg CRA boundaries are generally between Fourth Street and 49th Street from Second Avenue North to 30th Avenue South.

Important Dates. Organizations or individuals who can develop and provide such programs are encouraged to attend a Pre-Proposal Conference for RPF-6315 on Tuesday, December 13, at 5:30 p.m. at the Enoch Davis Center, 1111 18th Avenue South.

Interested parties can register online at http://www.stpete.org/with_the_city/city_supplier_starter_guide.php  

The online Request for Proposals will close at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. All RFPs for the Workforce Readiness and Development Program must be submitted prior to that time.
