Albuquerque Region Job OpeningEvaluation Services for Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Grant

Opening posted through October 8, 2018

WESST is accepting proposals to engage in both formative and summative evaluations to determine whether or not project activities are achieving the anticipated aims, and if not – how the project can be modified to achieve the goals and objectives proposed in the grant.

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from various companies, conduct a fair evaluation based on criteria listed, and select the candidate who can best execute according to the project scope.

Project Description

In November, 2017, WESST was awarded a two-year grant from The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to pilot The Money Learning Lab™ in diverse Albuquerque neighborhoods to learn and collaborate with existing and aspiring small business owners to help them launch or grow their own business.

The Money Learning Lab™ will have two key phases – Learning and Practice. During the LEARNING phase, the Lab will incorporate Human Centered Design (HCD) to engage diverse entrepreneurs in identifying their fears, barriers and motivations around money and assist them in crafting their own solutions to learn, apply, and implement systems for sound financial practices.

During the PRACTICE phase, we will launch a pilot to test the solution designed in the LEARNING phase.
