Virginia Department of Education Seeks Qualified Contractors

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is seeking unsealed qualifications from vendors that meet the Contractor Qualifications as listed below.


In accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC), the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is required to provide a list of prescreened external organizations. The term "external organization" is defined, by ESSA, as: ''(A) a nonprofit organization with a record of success in running or working with before- and after- school (or summer recess) programs and activities; or (B) in the case of a community where there is no such organization, a nonprofit organization in the community that enters into a written agreement or partnership with an organization described in subparagraph (A) to receive mentoring and guidance in running or working with before- and after-school (or summer recess) programs and activities" (ESSA, section 4201).

There will be no pre-qualification meeting held.

Any vendors interested in submitting a response to this RFQ must complete the Contractors Qualifications section, sign below and return the document to Monique Jones, Associate Director of Procurement, 101 N. 14th Street, 23rd Floor, Richmond, VA 23219. Completed forms will be accepted until 2:00PM, Friday, April 13, 2018. Forms received after that date will not be considered.


1. Any external organization that meets the qualifications outlined above, and completes, signs and returns this RFQ by the deadline, will be included on the external organization prescreen list. VDOE will maintain the list.

2. No funding is directly associated with this application for inclusion on the eligible provider list. The VDOE will not be providing funding to external organizations and the completion of this application WILL NOT RESULT IN A CONTRACT WITH THE VDOE.

3. The VDOE reserves the right to omit any organization from the list for failure to complete the RFQ in its entirety.

4. The VDOE reserves the right to remove an organization from the list when it fails to meet the minimum record of success.

5. The VDOE does not guarantee the amount of work given, if any, to organizations on the external organization list. By including an organization on the external organization list, the VDOE is simply verifying that the organization successfully completed the external organization prescreening process. To be clear, the VDOE's inclusion of an organization on the external organization list is not an endorsement of the organization, nor is it a certification of the quality of activities provided by the organization.
