    What is an RFQ? An RFQ (Request for Qualifications) is a qualifications-based selection process.  It is a request made by the OUSD After-School Programs Office for non-profit lead agencies to submit their qualifications to be considered as the primary contractor/provider of district school-site based after-school program services.


    What is a Bidder’s Conference? A bidder’s conference is a meeting hosted by the OUSD After-School Programs Office to assist agencies with completion of the RFQ application process. The bidder’s conference is designed to give interested and eligible non-profit lead agencies the opportunity to ask questions regarding the RFQ application process.
