Frequently Asked Questions
How can the local workforce contract with KRRC?
KRRC will generally issue Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to procure this work. Each RFP will explain the key requirements of a particular activity. Interested service providers must submit a proposal describing how the key requirements will be met. KRRC will select the most qualified company or individual to perform the work. AECOM (KRRC’s technical consultant) will supervise the work, which may be contracted through AECOM or directly with KRRC.
How are contracts advertised and awarded?
- RFP Development*: KRRC will develop a request for proposals, which includes a summary of the work and procurement process, in addition to a detailed list of technical requirements and a draft contract agreement.
- Notify Local Entities & Advertise: KRRC will notify county and Tribal agencies and our jobs newsletter list prior to RFP advertisement. Then, the RFP will be advertised directly in a variety of venues including our jobs newsletter, local jobs bulletin boards, and business opportunity and job websites.
- Service Providers Submit Proposals:Service providers develop their proposals over a time period that will vary depending on the complexity of the work, usually between 2 to 4 weeks.
- RFP Evaluation: KRRC will evaluate proposals using the specific selection criteria developed for each package. Examples for RFP selection criteria may include technical approach to the work, price, percent local involvement, etc. KRRC will normally require 2-5 weeks to review proposals, but this depends on the RFP.
- Contract Negotiation & Award: After the winning proposal is selected, KRRC will negotiate the terms and contract with a service provider.
*In some instances, the RFP process will be preceded by a short RFQ process to pre-qualify service providers prior to RFP release.
