Job Creation Assistance on Behalf of Persons With Severe Disabilities in Allegheny County; Amendment

[28 Pa.B. 2621]

   The Pennsylvania Bulletin notice published at 28 Pa.B. 2180 (May 9, 1998) regarding the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Request for Proposal, RFP 98-1, Job Creation Assistance on Behalf of Persons With Severe Disabilities In Allegheny County is amended to include the following information omitted from the original notice:

Commitment to Enhance Socially/Economically Restricted Businesses (SERB)

   The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania strongly encourages the submission of proposals by SERBs in response to this Request for Proposal.

   To achieve the objective of enhancing SERB participation, the Commonwealth has established SERB utilization as a selection criterion in the evaluation process.

   The Bureau of Contract Administration and Business Development (BCABD) in the Department of General Services will evaluate the aforementioned criterion and assign a point value to be considered within the overall RFP total point tabulation.

   Proposals submitted by individuals claiming SERB status or proposals submitted by individuals reflecting joint venture and subcontracting opportunities with SERBs must submit documentation verifying their claims.

   SERBs are businesses whose economic growth and development have been restricted based on social and economic bias. The businesses are BCABD-certified minority- and women-owned businesses and certain restricted businesses whose development has been impeded because their primary or headquarters facilities are physically located in areas designated by the Commonwealth as being in enterprise zones. A business will not be considered socially/economically restricted if one of the following conditions exists:

   1.  The business has gross revenues exceeding $4 million annually.

   2.  The concentration of an industry is such that more than 50% of the market is controlled by the same type of SERB (Minority Business Enterprise [MBE] or Women Business Enterprise [WBE]).

   Proposers not considered to be socially/economically restricted businesses seeking to identify such businesses for joint venture and subcontracting opportunities are encouraged to contact:
