Request for Proposals: Learning Management System (LMS)

The National Association of State Workforce Agencies is integrating its training offerings through the creation and implementation of NASWA Learning, a collection of training and certifications developed to support state workforce agencies and their staff. Key to the success of NASWA Learning is the identification and procurement of a flexible, scalable, intuitive and comprehensive LMS to serve as the nation-wide training platform for NASWA Learning. The intent of NASWA Learning is to manage the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, and delivery of education to its learners.

NASWA believes that an effective LMS platform should enable state staff to access learning opportunities on their own schedule and identify and participate in Instructor Led Training (ILT) events.

Learning opportunities include, but are not limited to:

    • Self-paced eLearning;
    • Instructor-led virtual classes;
    • Webinars;
    • Classroom training;
    • Asynchronous virtual classrooms; and
    • Access to supplemental course materials.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is intended to procure and implement a Learning Management System that will serve as the primary learner interface with NASWA Learning and its training offerings. The full RFP is provided in the link below.

NASWA will hold a vendor webinar question and answer session on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 3:00 pm ET. This will be the only opportunity for interested vendors to ask questions for clarification on the RFP. NASWA will answer all questions to the best of its ability during this webinar or if necessary through a follow up email to registered vendors. Questions may be submitted in advance via email and will be answered during the webinar. No additional questions will be addressed after the close of the webinar/teleconference call.

To submit questions in advance, contact:
Amy Smith, Project Manager
National Association of State Workforce Agencies
