Request for Qualifications
Training & Technical Assistance Services for Quality Improvement System
First 5 San Francisco intends to implement Training and Technical Assistance Services as an essential component of the City’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). The purpose of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is to identify a pool of qualified training entities and consultants from which First 5 San Francisco may choose prospective contractors to coordinate and implement training and technical assistance services. The selected respondents will participate as Quality Partners in planning, program development, evaluation and coordination activities.
Selected Respondents will remain eligible for consideration and contract negotiation on an as-needed basis through December 31, 2021.

Respondents selected under this RFQ may be asked to respond to additional screening processes prior to contract award.
