    Announcement - 4/06/2007

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) released this Request for Letterhead Bids (RLB) for the purpose of obtaining a vendor who will provide court reporting services. This Request for Letterhead Bids (RLB) document is released by ODJFS, and the subsequent contract will be with ODJFS. The Office of Unemployment Compensation (UC), Bureau of Program Services will be responsible for daily contract management

Section 4141.283 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC), states in part that, "Whenever the director of job and family services has reason to believe that the unemployment of twenty-five or more individuals relates to a labor dispute, the director shall schedule a hearing concerning the reason for unemployment." The above section of the law also requires that a transcript of the hearing be provided to the Unemployment Compensation Review Commission (UCRC) when an application of appeal is filed with the UCRC. Therefore, in order to comply with the ORC, ODJFS is seeking to contract with a vendor to perform court reporting services. The selected contractor will be required to travel to hearing sites around the State of Ohio, transcribe the hearing, and provide a transcript of the hearing within seventy-two hours (three days) of the hearing conclusion.
