City of Seattle Request for Proposals
Title: BIPOC Generational Wealth City Programs Impact Analysis
RFQ Due Date: March 16, 2022
Scope of Work: The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking a qualified consultant or consultant team to 1) create an inventory of current City programs, services, and resources that support BIPOC communities in building wealth, 2) develop a framework for evaluating the impact of these programs, 3) present ideas for how to increase alignment and impact wholistically through City programs. Through this contract, the City aims to establish a baseline understanding of how current investments and strategies are working together to close race-based wealth gaps. The results of this effort will impact the City’s “big picture” strategy for building generational wealth for BIPOC communities by informing the development of recommendations for future investments and providing a framework for continuing to maximize the impact of programs.
This work will be managed by the Department of Neighborhoods and will serve the City’s Interdepartmental Team (IDT) on Generational Wealth, which is in its foundational phase.
The consultant must be available to commence work on this project by May 2022 and commit through November 2022. Available funding for this contract shall not exceed $100,000.
Proposals are due on March 16, 2022 by 5:00 pm to the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods (Jackie.Mena@seattle.gov)
The consultant is bound to laws and ordinances regarding equal employment opportunity.
