Request for Qualifications for MassHire Cape & Islands Regional Blueprint Year Two Activities

Background:

Governor Charlie Baker created and implemented the Workforce Skills Cabinet (WSC) . The Workforce Skills Cabinet aligns the Executive Offices of Education, Labor and Workforce Development, and Housing and Economic Development.  Since its inception, the WSC has built strong collaborative solutions by uniting economic, workforce, and education partners across the Commonwealth to ensure  a continuous economic growth agenda.
