Specifications include, but are not limited to:The purpose of this contract is to assist the Department of Commerce in industry outreach activities related to the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) amendment recently secured to the grant titled, Washington State, Military & Defense Sector, Industry Adjustment Analysis and Strategy.BackgroundThe military and defense industry provides tens of thousands of jobs for Washington families and contributes billions of dollars to our economy each year. Washington is home to over 1,500 businesses supporting and supplying military and national security missions both globally and locally at many of the critical assets safeguarding our national security, from armed forces installations to homeland security assets around the state.What is not clear to the state, is to what extent the hundreds of companies that are doing business with the Department of Defense (DOD) or Department of Homeland Security (DHS), exactly what portion of the companys revenue is reliant on military and defense spending, what skills and knowledge are required by the companies workforce to be able to meet the militarys or national defense needs and given the current strategy to reduce defense spending, what it would mean for these companies and thus Washingtons economy. Of equal concern is the need for Washington State to be prepared to support the defense industry in our region as this planned reduction in defense spending at the national level continues to play out, thus requiring both short-term operations plan and a long-term strategic plan.The purpose of the entire OEA grant is to develop a proactive response that will significantly mitigate the potential catastrophic impact of federal defense budget cuts and sequestration on a region which has become increasingly dependent on military and defense contracts.Specific to this Request for ProposalThe primary focus of this activity will be to provide intensive support to Washington defense companies as they plan exporting opportunities.COMMERCE intends to award one contract to provide the services described in this RFP.OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE OF WORK
