Posted - May 3, 2021
Closes - May 26, 2021

In 2021, Land of Sky Regional Council, the designated Economic Development District (EDD) for the four-county region, was awarded funding from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) for a three-year Economic Development Partnership Planning Grant. The primary project under this grant is to develop and implement the Land of Sky Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). The CEDS has a goal to develop short-term and long-term economic strategies for a resilient, strong region in which to live, work, and play. 

The region is experiencing unprecedented pressures from growth and the CEDS needs to identify and address economic impacts of growth for future resiliency and sustainable success. Land of Sky Regional Council, in partnership with the Region’s Chambers of Commerce, is initiating this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process for a professional consultant (the “Consultant”) qualified to plan, execute, and deliver a report to identify points of collaboration of shared regional priorities from a business perspective. 

The work will focus on addressing: 

  1. SOAR analysis and Concurrence Strategies 
  2. Regional Industry Clusters Analysis and Resiliency Assessment 
  3. Workforce Assessment on Jobs/ Workforce due to Automation 

These project outcomes will allow for strategic updates to the CEDS, that will be foundational for regional economic resiliency efforts. 

The Consultant must have experience and expertise with economic development strategic planning best practices. The Consultant should have a strong and demonstrable background in developing targeted cluster identification for metro- and micropolitan regions. This project also includes associated priorities such as workforce, housing, and critical infrastructure within existing and emerging industry clusters.
