Request for Qualifications 204 - Consulting Services for Economic and Workforce Development Projects

The Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) supports the City’s economic vitality through key programs focused on neighborhood commercial corridors, workforce development, joint development projects, industry-focused business recruitment and retention, small business assistance and international business development. OEWD’s goal is to work continually to make San Francisco a better place to live, work and do business.

Through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ), OEWD is seeking to develop a list of qualified contractors to provide a variety of Economic and Workforce Development consulting services. The specific services being solicited under this RFQ are located in Section B - Project Descriptions. 

Note: Contractors whose minimum qualifications were confirmed for consulting work through OEWD’s Request for Qualifications (RFQ) 202 in Fall 2016 do not need to reapply to this RFQ unless they wish to also prequalify themselves for additional project areas outlined in RFQ 204 or reapply under similar areas to extend their prequalified status.  The list of prequalified firms created through RFQ 202 will be active until March 2018.  All other OEWD specific RFQ lists have expired.

Any additional information, updates, or changes to the content of the RFQ will be posted at this website. If you are interested in applying, please review this site periodically to check for more information.
