Request For Qualifications (RFQ)

All potential consultants are required to complete a Request for Qualification (RFQ) application and submit it to the RFQ Coordinator. The Corporation uses the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process to maintain a pool or database of qualified consultants who are capable of handling tasks or projects that are frequently repetitive or continuous in nature. The RFQ process is ongoing and applicants may update their information at any time.

NeighborWorks America generally employs two types of consultants: (1) those who apply as individuals and (2) those who apply as members of an organization. Individual applicants need to complete Part II of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ), attach an updated resume and provide a one paragraph biographical sketch. Those applicants, who are from an organization, need to complete the same documents plus have a Principal from their organization fill out Part I of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ).

The consultants are selected in accordance with the Corporation's equal employment opportunity goals for diversity and fairness. Based on their qualifications and experience, applicants are added to the corporate pool of eligible consultants. Candidates for open positions are selected from the corporate pool.

General Requirements

To be considered for employment the prospective consultant must fill out the RFQ application form and submit it to the RFQ Coordinator. The finance department will then prepare a Letter of Agreement (LOA) for signature by both parties. Once these steps are completed the prospective consultant will then be added to the RFQ database for future consideration. A Letter of Agreement with a former employee of NeighborWorks America or a relative of a former employee requires the approval of the Executive Director and the General Counsel.

Letters of Agreement are effective for a period of three years. Specific services, dates and times of performance, fees and expenses will be requested through a Task Order signed by the Division Director or other individual with delegated authority who will also approve the invoices submitted by the contractor/consultant.

Completing the RFQ Application

The RFQ Application may be filled out on the computer or be printed and filled out by hand.

If application is filled out on a computer, it can be sent as an attachment by email.

If it is filled out in printed form, it can be mailed to:
