Partners and Providers

Our community is our strongest asset.

Bergen County’s Workforce System attributes its success to a diverse and robust network of private and public partners.

  • Workforce Development Board & Job Center Partners
  • Government & Workforce Agencies
  • Community Service & Training Providers

High-quality workforce collaborations combine insider knowledge, strengths, and resources to create adaptive solutions that meet the current and future needs of employers, employees, interns, apprentices, and prospective candidates.


Collaboration is our way of life because it works!

Forging partnerships and consolidating efforts enables us to achieve shared goals, and significantly enhances our capacity to adequately address some of our community’s most complex workforce issues.

The Bergen County Workforce Development Board (WDB) represents a cross-section of the community. The WDB brings together business and industry leaders, labor unions, public and private agencies, community and faith-based organizations, government and policymakers, and service and training providers to support workforce development.

These indispensable relationships and combined efforts not only create value for workers and employers — but the entire community.

 Shared Success

We work with our partners to:

  • Expand pathways to employment and advancement opportunities
  • Align training systems, programs, and services
  • Increase inter-agency referrals
  • Coordinate outreach efforts and initiatives
  • Combine and leverage resources
  • Inform and engage communities
  • Connect individuals and partners
  • Develop new pilots and partnerships
  • Improve workforce practices and policies

Service Providers & Requests for Proposals

The Bergen County Job Center (formerly One-Stop Career Center) does not deliver all services — some are contracted out to Service Providers selected through a competitive procurement process.

The Bergen County Workforce Development Board (Bergen WDB) periodically issues Requests for Proposals (RFPs) soliciting service providers or contractors to help operate workforce programs or perform other services.

RFP notices are published in the official county newspaper, on this website, and through other channels. Notifications are also made available through our Vendor Notification List. We encourage all interested organizations to subscribe to the Vendor Notification List.

Questions related to RFP’s should be submitted to the Workforce Development Board’s Office.

There are no active RFPs at this time.
