Selects New One-Stop Operator


July 1, 2018 — The new One-Stop Operator (OSO) was procured on May 30, 2018, immediately upon notice of the existing OSO determining not to sign the offered extension. All partners, Chief Local Elected Officials (CLEOs), and the SIWDB Executive Committee were informed of the unexpected need to procure on May 30, 2018. Only one entity, Crosswalk Community Action Agency (CCAA), responded to the Request for Application, and submitted an application on June 26, 2018. The application was scored by the SIWDB Executive Committee. The CLEOs also approved the acceptance of the OSO application. Effective July 1, 2018, CCAA became the current One-Stop Operator.
