Thank you for your participation in the City of Portland’s COEP RFA process.   During the RFA review process it became clear that there is a great deal of existing expertise, infrastructure, and resources that the City can leverage through Prosper Portland, the City’s economic development entity, and through its relationship with Worksystems, Inc.  

After input from community stakeholders, the Mayor has directed OMF to oversee accountability and outcomes of the COEP program on behalf of the City, and for Prosper Portland and Worksystems to administer the program development, implementation, contract management and performance reporting.

To implement this change, the Mayor has directed that Prosper Portland and Worksystems be brought into the current and future RFA process to administer the COEP program.

The selection process has been extended to allow time for the transition.   Please continue to check the website for information regarding changes in the process.

Thank you.
