This Outreach Notification is to provide the vendor community notice for a Workforce DEI Strategic Recruitment Plan through the competitive bidding process.  This opportunity has been posted in Washington’s Electronic Business Solution (WEBS) https://pr-webs-vendor.des.wa.gov/  The WEBS reference # is WSP RFP DEI2021.

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is seeking proposals from qualified vendors (Bidders) for a comprehensive WSP Workforce Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Strategic Recruitment Plan and provide innovative approaches for the implementation of the plan.  The Bidder’s proposed plan should advance the WSP’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion regarding hiring and retention of a diverse workforce and provide sustainable, long-term results.

Legislation enacted in 2020, Engrossed Substitute House Bill (ESHB) 2322 proviso Section 207(15)(a)-(e), requires WSP to engage a consultant to conduct employment workforce diversity research, including research into a number of data elements about the state patrol workforce.

WSP is holding an optional Pre-Bid Conference for information on the RFP and DEI project.
