Opportunity Description:

The Ministry of Community and Social Services (CSS), Contract and Procurement Unit is seeking proposals from interested parties to provide Career and Employment Information Services (CEIS) and Job Placement (JP) Services to Immigrant Albertans. The Services will be designed to support individuals to enter and re-enter the workforce as quickly as possible, and to develop the job search skills needed for effective labour market transitions now and in the future.

Proponents are advised that two (2) separate RFP’s are posted concurrently for the delivery of employment/career Services to Immigrants. With an aim of maintaining community capacity, CSS intends to award each Contract to different Contractors (i.e. a separate Contractor for each of the 2 Services); therefore, in the event that a single Contractor is selected as the sole lead proponent for both RFPs, the given Contractor will then be required to choose which service they wish to provide between their two submissions.

Payment of contracted Services will be on a Fixed Fee for Service basis.

Active Services are expected to commence February 2020.

Proposals are to be prepared according to the Request for Proposals. The Request for Proposals must be obtained from the APC Tendering System.

A Proponents’ Meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 on the 4th floor, Room 448A, Park Plaza, 10611- 98 Ave, Edmonton, Alberta.

The proposal submission deadline is 14:00:00 Alberta Time, Tuesday November 5, 2019

Proposals to be submitted to the following:
