  • Washington State Regional Educational Needs Assessment - Focus Group Engagement (RFP No. 2017-RFP-160)

    RFP No. 2017-RFP-160 - Amendment 1
    The Washington State Regional Education Needs Assessment study will convene focus groups with regional employers, leaders from education, industry, labor, nonprofit, and community groups, students, and parents in Washington. The project’s goal is to gain insights into emerging economic trends, employers’ long-term planning trends, student demand, community needs and other factors, as they relate to specific educational needs in the distinct geographic areas of the state.

    This work will complement a quantitative data analysis of Washington’s regional educational needs to be completed in the early spring of 2017. The quantitative component of the assessment is aimed at developing broad economic profiles, highlighting major growth industries and occupational sectors, as well as educational and demographic profiles, looking at key factors such as regional education attainment and participation rates.

    The focus group work will augment these profiles and provide insights from key regional stakeholders with in-depth knowledge of their areas for more detailed and nuanced perspectives on regional needs.

    The primary objective of this project is to convene focus groups with key regional stakeholders for in-depth perspectives on local conditions affecting workforce, community and educational needs in each region of the state. The project may also include surveys of employers and other stakeholders.

    The RFP contains more information and the process for bidding for this work.

    Please note: completed proposals are due to the RFP Coordinator by 5:00 PM PST on Friday, March 10, 2017.
