Deadline for Proposal Submission: November 16, 2017 by 5:00PM EST. A .pdf version of the proposal must be emailed to ARunningStartPhila@gmail.com and mayorsfund@phila.gov.

The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia (the Fund) and the Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (OCEO) seek an experienced Project Manager to coordinate planning, building and rollout of a digital system that will enable families of children from birth to age five to access high-quality, publicly funded early care and education. The objectives of the new system are to streamline the application, eligibility verification and enrollment processes across multiple public funding sources and intermediaries; and to increase the transparency of the enrollment process for service providers. This system will collect data from families, send it to relevant funding agencies and receive data verifying parents’ eligibility and the availability of services.

OCEO’s institutional partners in this effort are the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; Child Care Information Services, quasi-public agencies that administer child care subsidy on behalf of the state; the School District of Philadelphia; the Mayor’s Office of Education; Public Health Management Corporation; and federal Head Start/Early Head Start grantees.

The successful applicant will lead a six-month planning process, with the expectation that this opportunity would extend through an additional two-year implementation process, subject to available funding.

The Fund and OCEO seek a qualified consultant to serve as internal Project Manager. With a planning and implementation budget exceeding $2 million, the Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring that the project is delivered on time, within scope and within budget.
