Meeting Announcement – Canceled

 

At the request of John Zeliff (NW WDB Chair), the meeting to review proposals has been postponed until a later date.

 

The Executive and Youth Advisory (Proposal Review) Committees will meet in joint session on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Cameron City Hall, Cameron, MO.  The purpose of this meeting is  to review proposals received in response to the Northwest Workforce Development Board Request for Proposals for WIOA Youth and One-Stop Operator / Adult / Dislocated Worker Program services.

While this is an open meeting, attendees are reminded to abide by the NW WDB Conflict of Interest/Code of Conduct Policy (found on our website at www.nwwdb.org;  click on the “About Us” link to Policies and Procedures).   In accordance with our Procurement Policy, the review process is as follows:

Review of Proposals:

For the WIOA Adult and Dislocated Worker programs and the One-Stop Operator, the Northwest Workforce Development Board (NW WDB) Executive and Program Oversight Committee members receive the RFP guidelines, the proposals received in response to the RFP, and the proposal evaluation sheet after the submission deadline.  Committee members who represent an agency which has submitted a proposal for consideration are not included in this distribution. WDB staff and committee members independently review and score each proposal.

Chapter 610, Missouri Revised Statues, also known as the Sunshine provision, provides authorization for closing meetings and records under very prescribed circumstances.  Chapter 510.021(11) states”…a public governmental body is authorized to close meetings, records and votes to the extent they relate to the following…sealed proposals or any documents related to a negotiated contract until a contract is executed…”  While we believe these conditions are met with the selection of WIOA subcontractors, we like for the process to be as open as possible and choose not to close the committee meeting when proposals are reviewed.  We require that individuals who represent an agency which has submitted a proposal not participate in any committee discussion.

Award Recommendation:

During a joint meeting of the NW WDB Executive and Program Oversight Committees, those members discuss and review evaluations; a vote is cast in committee to recommend subcontractor(s) to the full board.

When WIOA Youth service providers are procured, a similar process is followed as described above.  The NW WDB Youth Council receives the proposals for review, as do the Executive and Program Oversight Committee Members.  The Youth Council members make a recommendation at the joint Executive and Program Oversight Committee meeting.  A recommendation is then presented to the full board for vote.

One note – the Program Oversight Committee and Youth Council have been changed since the publication of our procurement policy. The Board established a Youth Advisory Committee in place of the Youth Council; individuals on the Youth Advisory Committee with a conflict of interest have not been part of the procurement process so as  to avoid real or perceived conflict of interest.

Meeting Announcement

 

At the request of the NW WDB Chair John Zeliff, I am sending notice of a special meeting of the Northwest Workforce Development Board; the Board business will be conducted via conference call on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.  The agenda with supporting documentation  (including call-in information) is attached.

The express purpose of this meeting is to review the Request for Proposals released on April 5, 2017.  From our By-Laws:

5.3          Special meetings of the Board may also be called by the Chairperson at such time and place and for such purpose that the Chairperson shall designate.  In addition, special meetings of the Board may be called upon the written request of one-third of the Board members, filed with the Board secretary.  Such request shall include the time, place, and purpose of the meeting.  The business conducted at any special meeting shall be limited to the stated purposes of that meeting. 

5.4          Written notice of regular and special meetings of the Board shall be distributed to each member seven (7) calendar days prior to the date of the meeting.  At all times, the requirements of Chapter 610 R.S. MO, also known as the Sunshine Law, shall be implemented providing at least 24 hours’ notice.

Although this is an open meeting, Board Members, Commissioners and Ex-Officio Members of the Northwest Workforce Development Board are reminded to declare a conflict of interest according to our By-Laws: 

5.5          Each member of the Board shall have one vote on all matters voted upon.  Proxy voting shall not be permitted.  Members must read, sign and abide by the Conflict of Interest/Code of Conduct Policy of the NW WDB.  Members shall declare conflict of interest and refrain from voting when matters under consideration appear to involve real or apparent personal fiduciary interest.  In any circumstances on which the Board is voting the award or distribution of funds for goods or services, Board members must abstain from voting if: 

a. The member is a vendor for the goods or services;

b. The member is a subcontractor of a vendor for the goods or services;

c. The member serves in a Board capacity for any such vendors or contractors.  All declarations of conflict of interest and abstentions shall be recorded by name in the minutes.

Further clarification in the By-Laws notes who may participate in discussions of the Board during a meeting:

4.6          The Board may approve Ex-Officio, non-voting Board members who may attend all meetings of the Board, and may participate in all discussions so long as no of conflict interest exists, but may not execute a vote.  At a minimum, this shall include Presiding Commissioners, One-Stop Partners, and Committee or Task Force members who are non-voting members of the Northwest Workforce Development Board.

Meeting Announcement

The Northwest Workforce Development Board is scheduled to have a board meeting on Tuesday March 7, 2017.  We will have a light lunch at 4:00 and the business meeting will begin at 4:30.

PLEASE NOTE – we will meet at the NCMC Barton Farm Campus Lager Laboratory near Trenton (directions are on the first page of the meeting document).   Our regular meeting space in Cameron is no longer available; we searched for facilities in Cameron that will house our large group for a 3-hour block of time and struggled.  I realize this means quite a drive for many of you – if you cannot attend in person, please plan to join us via conference call.   Our conference call number is: 866-906-0040; use participant code 7141429#.
