   C. Chief Executive Officer’s Report
      CEO Oberski stated that as a part of the recovery package, MWA may be receiving funding of
      approximately $5 million for program services before the end of this program year, July 30, 2009.
      The funding will be utilized to provide more of the regular program services offered through
      Michigan Works, and a new summer youth employment program.

       Limited information is available on the summer youth employment program at this time. As part
       of the $5 million is Recovery Act funds, the MWA may be receiving approximately $2.3 million
                                                    2
      to operate the summer youth employment program. At this point it is estimated that the summer
      program will be able to employ about 620 youth in Saginaw County, 240 in Bay County, and 140
      in Midland County.

      It was noted that the MWA is currently conducting an Equal Opportunity investigation involving a
      complaint received by a former employee of one of our service providers against the supervisor
      who is an employee of that same contractor.

      The Board was reminded that the Workforce Development Board (WDB) has granted the CEO
      authority to approve contracts up to $50,000 with the concurrence of the WDB Chair. The
      following contracts have been approved under that procedure:
                  a)        SVRC MPRI Community Coordinator for $49,798 from March 1, 2009
                            through September 30, 2009;
                  b)        New Edge Technology for Essential Work Skills in the amount of $50,000
                            for August 8, 2008 through June 30, 2009;
                  c)        Stephen Kempski for EO Investigative Services for $2,500 from March 9,
                            2009 through completion; and
                  d)        Yeo & Yeo for fiscal monitoring of Bangor Township Schools in the amount
                            of $17,200 from October 1, 2008 through September 30 2009.

      The Yeo & Yeo contract is a result of corrective action required by the State of Michigan for fiscal
      monitoring of Bangor Township Schools. Based on the preliminary draft report from Yeo & Yeo,
      Bangor Schools might not be required to repay any disallowed costs.

ITEM#9: ACTION ITEMS:
   A. Staff recommendation to receive and review WDB action which approved the following RFP
      process for selecting 3-year service providers:

          1. The Workforce Development Board establishes a single Service Provider
             Recommendation Committee to make service provider recommendations to the full Board.
             This Committee should be quite large so that each County has adequate representation, but
             it should be less than a quorum of the full Board. Consortium Board members (some
             number less than a quorum) will also be invited to sit on the Committee.
          2. All proposals are scored by at least 5 Administration staff persons.
          3. Workforce Development Board Members and Consortium Board Members are also invited
             to score proposals.
          4. Service Provider Recommendation Committee Meeting #1: Administration shall compile
             the scores and present three separate reports to the Committee: Staff scoring, WDB
             member scoring, and Consortium Board member scoring. Administration will be expected
             to explain and defend the results of its scoring. Based on this information, the Committee
             will select bidders, if any, to be invited to make a presentation to the Committee.
          5. Service Provider Recommendation Committee Meeting #2, if necessary: The Committee
             will hear the presentations of invited bidders. Based on a) the scoring from the first
             meeting, b) the bidder’s presentations, and c) input from Committee members and

                                                   3
             Administration, the Committee shall determine the recommendations to make to the full
             Board.
          6. The full Workforce Development Board receives the Committee’s recommendations and
             takes final action.
