Partnerships 

  • The Partnership works with public and private agencies, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and educational institutions to create workforce solutions for the Chicago and Cook County regions.
  • The Partnership maintains a "qualified agency list", which is a compilation of potential bidders whose qualifications meet the eligibility to partner with us. 
  • To verify qualification, all RFP applicants much complete a "Request for Qualifications" form (RFQUAL).  If you are interested in contracting with SDWP you may submit an RFQUAL at any time.

  • We conduct a competitive and fair process–reviewing cost, quality and qualifications–in the procurement of goods and services necessary to meet the needs of our customers.
