1 CONTINUATION PAGE 14.1 Is there an incumbent contractor for this project? Answer: No 14.2 Does DOL/ETA intend to extend the response date beyond March 20, 2000? Answer: Yes, the response date is extended to 2:00 PM Local Time on March 22, 2000. 14.3 Reference Section L.8, Please reconsider allowing company senior or general managers or consultants to make part of the oral presentations. Answer: In view of the fact that senior company personnel of small businesses are sometimes project managers or principal investigators of projects, senior company personnel may make part of the oral presentation. However, they must be listed in the contractor's budget as a direct cost and be an integral part of the contractor's proposed staffing for the project. The Project Manager must devote between 40 and 50% of their time to the project. NOTE: Offerors may not use consultants to make any part of the oral presentation. 14.4 In what part of the submission is information pertaining to the project organization and time commitment for assigned staff intended to be placed? Should this information accompany the resumes and related information in Part 2. Answer: Yes, see M.3 B. INDIVIDUAL STAFF EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS. 14.5 Can the required minimum of "five (5) years of Job Corps related experience" of the project manager include other workforce development experience such as JTPA-funded employment and training background in lieu of direct Job Corps employment? Answer: Yes. However, it is the contractor's responsibility to demonstrate the level of relevance that any work experience other than Job Corps has for this project. The DOL/ETA Technical Evaluation Panel will have the authority to review and assign weight to that experience as it deems appropriate. 14.6 Section 4.(d) (ii) mentions a "proposed Senior Property Coordinator." Why is this specified for this project? What is this person supposed to do? Answer: This is a typographical error. "Senior Property Coordinator" should read "Senior Project Coordinator." This requirement refers to the second most senior person, after the Project Manager, in the contractor's staff organization. Also, note that the requirement for three (3) years of Job Corps experience for this position is modified in accordance with Paragraph 14.5 of this amendment. Page 5

1 14.7 Section M.4.(d) (iv) states that "All professional personnel must devote 100% of their time to the project." This requirement seems overly prescriptive as some professional staff would be most effectively and efficiently (from a cost perspective) assigned at less than the equivalent of full-time during the course of the contract period. Some project requirements may require specific on-going technical and professional expertise but not need a full-time commitment of the assigned staff. Furthermore, staff on other company projects whose expertise and prior experience parallels the qualification requirements of this RFP would be precluded from participating on this project. Answer: It is not necessary for all the professional staff to devote 100% of their time to the project. However, the offeror must demonstrate the ability to provide the appropriate professional staff time and expertise for each of the projects/tasks described in the Statement of Work. 14.8 Which of the WIA performance measures does Job Corps view as high priority? Answer: Job Corps views each of the prescribed WIA performance measures as high priority. However, the 6 and 12 month follow-up measures are two measures for which Job Corps does not currently collect data. 14.9 Is OA a part of the Job Corps recruitment function? What are the specific sub functions? Answer: OA stands for Outreach and Admissions. It encompasses all activities associated with applicant outreach and the admissions process. 14.10 Is there feedback or accountability for graduate performance? Answer: Currently Job Corps has a performance measure for graduation rate. The measure is the percent of students who complete their GED and obtain employability skills or the percent of students who complete a vocation and obtain employability skills. 14.11 How is an invalid placement defined for a current job core independent validation? In what major areas is the current system inconsistent with the WIA? Answer: An invalid placement is a placement which is reported to our Job Corps data center as having met the Job Corps definition of placement and is later found not to have met it. Job Corps currently re-validates all reported placements by calling students and asking if they were placed consistent with the data that was reported. When students can not be reached, the employer is contacted for validation purposes. The major areas in WIA are consistent with Job Corps' current operation. There are additional requirements in WIA that are not part of Job Corps current operation such as the 6 and 12 month follow-up. 14.12 The statement of work did not provide an address or addressee for sending the proposal, nor number of copies or other format instructions Can you provide this information or tell me where to find it?
