In spring 2015, the organizations that comprised the Leadership Roundtable tasked a steering committee with devising a national social work workforce study encompassing all levels and fields of practice. The steering committee organizational members are:
American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare
Association of Baccalaureate Social Work Program Directors
Association of Social Work Boards
Council on Social Work Education
Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education in Social Work
National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work
National Association of Social Workers

Request for Applications
To address gaps in social work workforce data, the planned study will: (1) have a complete count of social workers; (2) a profile of practitioners; and (3) a means for sustaining and institutionalizing data collection over time. On behalf of the steering committee, CSWE seeks a provider with the qualifications and experience to implement and conduct a study to achieve the project purpose specified in the RFP.
All proposals are due no later than 11:59 pm (Eastern), October 31, 2016. If interested, please submit a proposal and cover letter outlining your experience and expertise to email@example.com. Any questions about the RFP can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
