The New York City Department of Education (DOE) strives to give all businesses, including Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs), an equal opportunity to compete for DOE procurements. The DOE’s mission is to provide equal access to procurement opportunities for all qualified vendors, including MWBEs, from all segments of the community. The DOE works to enhance the ability of MWBEs to compete for contracts. DOE is committed to ensuring that MWBEs fully participate in the procurement process.
The NYCDOE, on behalf of the Division of Teaching and Learning, Office of Assessment, is seeking proposals from qualified organizations that are capable and experienced in providing an identification tool that includes multiple cognitive measures strongly related to the identification of Gifted and Talented (G and T) students in grades Pre-Kindergarten (pre-K) to two. Strong performing students who meet pre-determined thresholds on a nationally norm-referenced assessment will then be eligible to apply to Citywide and/or District G and T programs throughout the New York City school system.

Approximately 40,000 children seeking placement in one of six DOE citywide G and T program schools and 96 DOE district wide G and T programs take G and T assessments each year. Citywide program schools consist of only G and T classes for each grade. District programs are housed in general education schools and typically include one G and T class per grade. The DOE G and T program follows the New York State Common Core Learning Standards. This Request for Proposal (RFP) may result in one (1) requirements contract agreement. The awarded contract will be for a term of six (6) years, which will cover five (5) test administration cycles. A test administration cycle includes test development, the main administration of the test in January and February, scoring of the test, and the summer administration of the test for students new to New York City. It is anticipated that services will commence on or about January 2017. Detailed service descriptions and requirements are provided in the RFP solicitation.
