Request for Proposals: PCSAO seeks vendor for workforce research

As part of its strategic plan, PCSAO is seeking a vendor to conduct research on the children services workforce.

The Request for Proposals released today, Building a 21st Century Children Services Workforce, identifies two questions regarding recruitment and retention to be answered by the research: 1) What can be learned from research and from data collection about the current state of the children services workforce? and 2) What research, data, and concrete solutions are relevant to addressing Ohio’s workforce crisis?

In particular, PCSAO is seeking children services workforce solutions that have been successful in other states, particularly in state-supervised, county-administered systems like Ohio’s, as well as solutions that have been successful in Ohio or other states in comparable sectors (government human services).

Proposals are due Feb. 12.
