Solicitation number 192759

Publication date

Closing date and time 2024/05/01 13:00 EDT

     Open School BC ("OSBC") creates courses and other instructional resources for public organizations. OSBC's work is project-driven and depending on the situation, it may need one or more contracted resources to support a project’s needs. For more information, read the OSBC backgrounder.  
    OSBC is interested in establishing Standing Arrangements for a variety of learning design and support services to draw from upon request, on an as-needed-basis as project work arises. The areas of learning design and support services OSBC is seeking are in the following Service Areas:
    1. Service Area 1: Instructional/Learning Experience Design
      Develop and/or review Instructional Design Plans (or equivalent documentation) through a pedagogical/andragogical lens.
    2. Service Area 2: Learning Resource Research and Evaluation
      Conduct Learning Resource research and/or evaluation including (but not limited to) environmental scans, evaluation strategies, data analysis, and survey creation.
    Respondents may seek to become a Contractor in one or any number of the Service Areas.
    Historically, the Ministry procured these services through a Qualified Supplier's List pursuant to a Request for Qualifications, which this RSA is intending to replace. Qualified Suppliers on that list are not precluded from submitting a Response to this RSA. 
    The Ministry intends to enter into multiple Standing Arrangements in each of the Service Areas with a 3-year term, with the option for the Ministry to extend for 3 additional one-year periods. The term of the Standing Arrangements is anticipated to start spring 2024.
    Further details as to the scope of this opportunity and the requirements can be found within this RSA.
