Question: Not sure how to exactly phrase this question concisely, but we are thinking of proposing an online AJC option for job seekers to interact with services and allow us to offer programming beyond traditional hours of the AJC.  However, this product is a Career Team product and we would need to lease this product and build into the proposal.  Is this allowable or would this need to be bid out?
Answer:  
Because it is a proprietary product this RFP precludes offering the product. We also did not ask for this as a part of the RFP specifications and would not be able to consider it at this time. However if NRWIB does want to purchase virtual one stop capability we would need to design specifications and then Career Team and anyone else would be able to bid.

 

Question:  Is there an additional budget narrative required, over and above including all the requested information on the provided budget forms?
