OIS RFP: JFS-IS-10-06 Virtual Video Orientation Project
All documents in .pdf format

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) is soliciting bids to identify a vendor who will provide a web site to support basic orientation for candidates for Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment  program. This URL will provide an overview of the services available, eligibility requirements and how to sign up for them.  This website is being created to supplement the existing small group intake sessions that are currently over-subscribed due to the large number of unemployed Ohioans.  The hope is that through in home and library use, this web site will reach out to a large percentage of those eligible and leave the on-site orientation session available for those with no internet access.

 Under the contract resulting from this RFP, the vendor will deliver a virtual reemployment website that will introduce and provide detailed explanations of available services in Ohio’s One-Stop offices and provide a variety of self-directed Reemployment services and tools that will include a self-assessment, Barriers to Employment Success Inventory (BESI© 2007 JIST Works). Optional job search videos will also be available. The virtual reemployment system will prepare the individual for the one-on-one work search plan development that is completed in the One-Stops throughout Ohio.  We need to have this site up and operational by August 2, 2010.
